I love this idea!  We thought about having an outdoor wedding and if we had gone through with it, we would have used hay bales.  We were going to cover them with pieces of unbleached muslin (it was going to be a Fall wedding).  But we ended up getting married in the spring, inside.   Roll Eyes

I saw a wedding in a magazine where they only provided chairs for the older guests (grandparents, etc.)  Everyone else stood.  Of course, that would only work if you're having a short ceremony and (I would think) few guests. 
Agree with you

I worry about what went so wrong with photo hosting suddenly that it is taking this long to fix it, though this may be that I've heard too many incompetent tech team horror stories from my husband.

A lot of people on the swap boards are sorting out workarounds, but I think anyone who had been kind of thinking of taking a break from the forum has probably already bailed.

Unfortunately I agree with AD. Its not driving me away; Ill wait for the issue to be fixed and am looking forward to posting more photos when it is, but in the meantime I probably wont be posting much.

As for recruiting new members, I used to recruit heavily but have given up. Most people Ive shown the site to in the last few years have found the whole thing a bit off-putting because the interface is so outdated. I absolutely love so much about craftster - the community, it goes without saying, as well as the massive motivation of the craftalongs, the creative and well-organized swaps (so much easier to keep up with than on other sites like Instagram), the supportive place to share and look at other projects... basically everything about the people and the concepts of every board is fantastic; its just the actual mechanics of the site that make it hard for newcomers to navigate and find accessible, I think.

All I can think to do about that would honestly be to basically start it over on a more modern, clean-looking platform (maybe something like https://www.a2hosting.com/wordpress-hosting/bbpress ? Looks like it's less than $5 a month for unlimited storage and databases, 24 hour support, and one-click option to add phpBB for bulletin board hosting, and it even says that in most cases they can transfer old sites over for free!).

I realize that might take a tremendous amount of work and money; Im basically just thinking out loud because Ive been sad that I cant get any new friends to join my favorite crafting site, and the tech issues make me worry even more!

That's neato!  Cheesy  I like the sophisticated twist on a universally recognized silhouette.

 Wowza! Looks like you got an amazing package! You got quite the haul! Had to laugh at the "and, well you can see for yourself". I looked at the pic and was questioning if I was seeing that right. Ha! Bet you got a good laugh out of that.  Cheesy

What a great project!  Your school must have a great principal to deserve the work you put into this.  Is there a school emblem/patch you can add for the finishing touch?

He really is a great guy and our community/parish is pretty close. My son just adores him.

The school does have a logo, but I didn't have any old shirts/jackets to scavenge it from, nor did I have the embroidery pattern to recreate it. Since I already gave the jacket away, I probably won't be adding anything to it. If I make a vest to match, or do something with the muslin jacket, I may add the logo to that.  Wink

Oh quaggy!  I am so jealous of you and your camper and your flea market that I've decided I'm going to mail myself to you as a claim for this swap!  Be on the lookout for a B-I-G box that has airholes in it for me to breathe.   Roll Eyes Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Kiss

Get here before we leave and you can go with us!
