1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Our Halloween Party (lots of pictures1 on: October 21, 2008 02:27:19 PM
Im not sure if I can post pictures of our party, but I figure if I show all the costume we put together and not the store bought ones it would be ok. Let me know if there is anything wrong, please!

First, the decorations

 she was made out of plastic bags and a hanger!

paper mache hands, newspaper we just poured blood and grass over!

the inside was pretty much spier webs!

next food: just sugar! not such a good combo with the alcohol!

my friend and i made all of these and barely anyone ate any! we were so sad, but it was fun making them!

it was my boyfriends birthday, so we made him this cake. the headstone is fondant and the skeleton and rats are rubber.

Some of the costumes:
There's a ton more, but I don't have them on this computer.

my friend and the cupcake we made for him. his outfit was completely thrifted.

this is he and I. I am girl Luigi. I made my dress and had a green tutu underneath. I also had to spray paint the hat because I couldn't find any green hats at all!

my friend who was mickey mouse. we found all her clothes too, and yes, we went for the boy version of our costumes, not sure why?

my boyfriend and me! we thrifted his overalls and shirt and then decorated his hat.

There's more pictures, but I feel like this is already way too much! Thank you for looking!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / drab living room on: September 02, 2008 09:54:49 PM
Sorry, no pictures right now guys! Ok, my boyfriend, roommate and I all live together in an old one story house. It was bf's grandma who passed away and there needs to be a lot done with it. As we clean out a room, we begin to decorate (i know we should clean the entire thing and then decorate, but it honestly has lifted our spirits when a room comes together.) Right now our living room is in need of fixing up. The walls are different shades of white. Our color theme is red, black and white (red couch and two black, red and black curtains, black tv stand and red dvd holder.) We currently want to paint the living room, but we dont know what color. Oh we also have wood floors, but we will probably buy rugs in black or red. I personally want a very light shade of gray, but the others aren't sure. Bf wants either whiter or beige, and rm probably just doesn't want to paint more!
To recap:
1. What would be a good color to paint the walls to go with a black, white and red theme? Would a light gray brighten up the room?
2. Does anyone know any websites or blogs where people move into a very trashed house and fix it up very nicely? I'm looking for mostly personal sites I guess, like the finished interior design thread on craftster, but more about fixing up old, trashed houses.

Sorry this is so long and thank you for any advice. I just want a house we can love!
3  COOKING / Dessert / 21 birthday cupcakes. on: June 19, 2008 01:28:54 PM
This is my first post! I've been looking at this site for a long time though! I was so inspired by all of these neat desserts that I really wanted to try. It hasn't been going the best, what with a horrible marshmallow fondant attempt, but I'm ok at cupcakes. I even offered to make my friend cupcakes. He turned 21 and being that we are poor college students, no one wanted to pay up for a cake. So, here they are:

they are my own version of s'mores cupcakes (after failing to follow the reicpe) and baby blue sprinkles, because that's his favorite color. All the cupcakes were chocolate with chocolate chip, and thankfully everyone loved them!
