I've been helping out with some of the advertising campaigns for the fundraisers that the SO (Significant Other) Organization has been putting on here in Grenada. Here's the latest one for a photography auction! The auction was last night, and it was loads of fun. So much fun, in fact, that I forgot to take pictures. I was too busy stuffing my face with brownies and ice cream. :P

I turn twenty-seven today! We celebrated this past weekend with a cookout on the beach with some friends, complete with bacon-wrapped Sonoran hot dogs, snorkeling, and good ol' Monopoly Deal. On Monday, I spent the day celebrating with Dean. We went kayaking at SGU's University Club and then spent the afternoon cooking up a lobsterfest for dinner. We're going to have lobster bisque for dinner tonight. Thanks for all your birthday wishes! I am the luckiest girl. :)

I've seen these confetti system garlands popping up everywhere, but at $130 each, they're a bit out of my price range (and I'm not even sure if they ship to Grenada!). I decided to try my hand at making them for Dean and Jade's party using what was available to me here on the island. You'll only need two things - streamers and scissors. Oh, and maybe some hot glue that you don't see here...
Step 1: Grab a length of streamer twice the length of your final tassel. Continue doing this, overlapping until you have a stack about 6 layers thick.
Step 2: Cut the ends so that you end up with six separate pieces. Keep them stacked.
Step 3: Fold all six pieces in half lengthwise.
Step 4: Starting at the open end (not the folded end), cut thin strips all the way across.
Step 5: Open up the layers and roll them up in the middle. Twist the middle tightly.
Step 6: Fold the twist in half to create a loop and continue twisting. Put a dab of hot glue in the twists to hold in place.
Step 7: Pull apart the fringes and fluff up your tassels. Make a bunch, loop them onto string, and hang.
(Don't they look like jellyfish here?)
