1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Planning a Moroccan Banquet - need food AND decor ideas on: April 02, 2010 01:21:59 AM
I'm trying to plan a (small) (vegetarian) Moroccan banquet for my mum's birthday next week. I thought I'd post here as this falls into a couple of categories.

1. Menu ideas - any vegetarian menu suggestions would be a big help

2. Decoration ideas - mum and dad have a rectangular dining room table and I'd love to jazz up the table/surrounds to suit the theme. There's not really any option to hang curtains or drapes so I thought I'd pick everyone's crafty brains for ideas! So centrepieces, place settings...anything!

There will only be 7 or 9 of us so not huge, I know, but I really want to make it special...
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Help needed for the Ultimate Beer Drinker's Kit on: February 03, 2007 03:04:42 AM
I'm trying to come up with something cute, quirky and practical for my boy for his bday/vday.

He likes sport (esp footy and cricket) and beer, so I'm trying to come up with a beer drinker's kit.

He already has "these are my beer drinking shorts" boxers, but I'm thinking of:
- A sampler of beers
....and that's where I get stuck

All ideas are welcome.

NB. I live in Australia so no glass etching please
Just a quick post to say that as of 8am today, Kmart (at least in Victoria) has on sale boxes of paper punches. It's half price (down to $25) and you get 28 different punches and an interchangeable handle and they are so comfy to use - I'd really recommend splurging.
Having said that, I also got some crappier punches (20% off all scrapbooky stuff!) simply because I wanted some basic shapes, so now I am all punchy and organised.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / *URGENT* Need costume in a hurry on: July 28, 2006 01:19:16 AM
So I'm going out tomorrow night and it's 'dress like a movie character'.
I have checked heaps of costume posts and no luck.
My sewing is basic at best, and I don't have alot of shopping time so I'm looking for something simple and clever - and I've given up trying to find shoes for ruby slippers.
I have a few hours tonight, a couple tomorrow. It's winter so nothing too cold.
Any help would be awesome
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / *** HELP me JAZZ myself up! *** on: January 06, 2006 02:46:25 AM
Okay, I have this weekend then back to running around for work, uni etc. And I want to jazz myself up somewhat. BUT I only want el natural stuff. Here's what I'd like help on:

HAIR - It's thick and dark and ringletty on a nice day. I'd love a reddish rinse through it - but no artificial dyes, and something that will show after only this weekend to do it!

SKIN - I'm recovering pretty well from some bad sunburn, but my nose is peeling! And sore! I've been moisturising and aloe-ing, but is there anything else I can do for silky smooth skin

Anything else you can think of for prettying myself, and just being...DIFFERENT! I'll definitely go a wacky nail colour which I haven't done in a while
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / HELP! I need food for kids to cook on: November 06, 2005 02:32:36 AM
I work in after-school care and the kids love doing a cookie activity!
The problem is, I'm running out of ideas!
I need simple recipes where kids can help make as much as possible.
Something different than chocolate crackles and honey joys would be appreciated!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / newbie needs urgent help for assignment on: November 01, 2005 03:55:49 AM
Okay, so for my final writing piece for the semester, my teacher's pretty relaxed about formatting which is why my piece is being scrapbooked/decorated beyond normal! The problem is I have NEVER bookbinded before, and I want it to look impressive. I have all single A4 sides (so if I stuffed one up it didn't affect the others) - so p1 is separate to p2 (on the back) etc. SO what's the easiest way to double side and bind my creation? No shop spiral binding please.
8  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / interest in theatre craft fair? on: September 17, 2005 11:33:13 PM
I'm thinking of getting a pre-Xmas craft fair up and running as a fundraiser for my theatre group this year.

Venue: Clayton (MELBOURNE)

Cost: not sure, I'm thinking $30 for group members, and $50 for nonmembers cos that allows for membership costs. Opinions?

Any interest? I'll post more details as they eventuate, atm I'm just looking for interested people. It'd probably a Sunday late November or something
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Theatre Craft Fair on: September 17, 2005 11:27:32 PM
Ok, I'm trying to come up with a good fundraiser for my theatre group and I've had a read of all the posts about starting your own fair, but I still have some questions.

1. Booth pricing - is it fair to ask $30 for members, $50 for nonmembers (that includes membership)? More? Less? No ideas about audience, but it'd be one day, held at the theatre etc

2. Hours - if it's on a Sunday, leading up to Xmas, daylight savings....10-5? 11-6? longer? shorter?

3. Tables - at that price are we expected to privde them? (it'll probably be outside)

4. Anyone here from Melbourne interested? PM me! *grins*

I really hope to get this up and running this year. I was thinking we could offer a free/discounted info table to other local theatre groups, in exchange for them volunteering to help with promo/set up/clean up etc

10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / camp cooking! on: September 08, 2005 03:15:33 AM
