Let’s try this again. Here’s the winning entry from the Knitting Nest’s picnic contest, the take-out dinner. I also liked the Crobasco, just for sheer fun’s sake.
Speaking of the Knitting Nest, the shop has some fun events and classes on tap for August. Aug. is a Fix your Knits class from 2 to 5 p.m. The class costs $45 and sounds like a great resource for all knitting levels. Aug. 18 at 6 p.m. is movie (and henna) night. “Monsoon Wedding” is the movie of choice, and local henna artist Nicole Di Mucci will create henna tattoos for event-goers. Thinking it’s too hot to knit? how about crocheting snowflakes? get a jump on your holiday crafting Aug. 25 from 2-4. The class costs $45. for more info on the Knitting Nest’s classes and events, visit the shop’s blog.

Temporary tattoos have grown in popularity to an unprecedented level in recent years. new tattoo lovers cut across all ages and social classes. many go for permanent tattoos, while many others prefer the temporary variety. it could be they are not ready to commit to a permanent design, or may not be entirely happy with the idea of a permanent marking on the body.
If you are interested in a tattoo, but are considering a temporary one, you have 3 choices.
These tattoos are derived from ancient Indian, African and Middle Eastern artistic and spiritual traditions that are thousands of years old. A henna tattoo involves the artist painting the chosen area with a mixture combining henna leaves, black tea, paprika, and other natural ingredients.
Once this is done, the artist applies a lemon paste on the tattoo, and leaves it to dry for three to four hours. The tattoo will last, if cared for, for up to 3 weeks.
If you do not care to have a tattoo on that long, why not go for an airbrushed tattoo?
It’s got a modern feel, and lasts about 3 or 4 days if done by a good airbrush tattoo artist. The task is performed by an artist who uses airbrush machinery and paint to create the tattoo in any number of colors or range of designs, according to your specification.
This is the ultimate quick-fix tattoo. you can get them at costume shops and party stores. you can easily apply them yourself, using as a guide the directions that come with the package.
Most stick-on tattoos will last from 3 days to 7 days depending on the quality.
Now that you know how long a temporary tattoo will last, why not go ahead and try one or two of the methods shown, or even all three? these types of tattoos are great for parties, celebrations, and trips to the beach, and there’s nothing quite as re-assuring as knowing it is temporary and causes no discomfort.
If you could turn back the clock and go back to you first time tattoo, would you make the same decisions? would you pick the same design? same colours? same style? same artist?
Unfortunately many of us would have to say no to these questions. If we are honest with ourselves, deep down a lot of us would probably have a different design altogether.
Take my example for instance. My first tattoo was a tiny green Japanese dragon on my right bicep. I’m by no means any kind of bodybuilder but my arm simply dwarfs this design.
It’s too small. It’s not my favourite colour. It has absolutely no meaning to it. It is a flash design that I simply picked from the studio wall without so much as fifteen minutes of planning.
Tattoos are addictive. No sooner had I had the first one than I was planning more. bigger designs, bolder colours. Better body placement.
I grew to dislike that tiny green dragon dwarfed by a sea of skin colour. So I added to it. Firstly with some symbols. then another dragon behind it. This wasn’t big enough either so I added a further dragon, and further symbols.
I now have a half sleeve made up of multiple dragons and associated Japanese work. It’s nice, but it’s all a bit disjointed. a bit of an afterthought. If I could go back I would have one huge design big enough to make a sleeve.
I guess that’s the benefit of hindsight isn’t it? we could all probably make better decisions if the laws of time allowed us to go back and change them
But there are ways to limit the chance of regret for your first time tattoo. you need to plan well in advance. make sure you’re totally happy with the style of artwork you’re embarking on.
Remember, fads go in and out of fashion. your choice may be hip or square a number of times over it’s life cycle, so you need to be totally comfortable with it.
Try to decide as early as possible exactly how much artwork you are likely to want. as I said, tattoos are addictive, so even though you might just be thinking about a small discreet image on your hip you need to be well aware that your decision may change very quickly.
Be sensible about where you place your tattoo. Factor in the chance that you may wish to add to it. your artist will be able to make suggestions on how to make your first design easily adaptable.
Think about the colouring. If the design is going to be on a part of your body out in the open then bright vivid colours will faded more quickly.
Above all, TAKE YOUR TIME. Even if you have to visit the studio ten times before finally getting in the chair. thorough planning will give you the best advantage on getting the first time tattoo for you.
Use henna tattoos for a safe and natural look for your skin Henna has been used for thousands of years to create color on skin and hair, and to create body art and to dye and color various fabrics.
Henna tattoos originated in India, and are associated with traditional events such as weddings and the birth of a child. They have recently grown in popularity as a safe, non-permanent alternative to real, permanent tattoos which can only be removed by an extensive medical process equal to the magnitude of getting the tattoo in the first place.
It is possible for someone who desires to get a henna tattoo to buy a do-it-yourself kit which contains the supplies necessary to create the tattoo, including the henna itself and stencils to use in producing the image. in the event the person does not want to pursue a DIY tattoo, henna tattoo practitioners are available who can administer the tattoos. it is possible to hook up with those practitioners through the Internet or through contacting a local natural foods store. While no licensure is available for these practitioners, the procedure and supplies are safe for use on human skin, as it has for the last several thousand years.
Cases of contact dermatitis have been found in some who have had henna products used on their skin; these are not necessarily caused by the products, but in the way they have been applied to the patient. it is essential to be aware of the source of the henna used, as well as the credentials and hygiene of the practitioner administering the product to the patient’s skin.
Henna tattoos create deep, brownish red lines on your skin. The longer that you leave the henna on your skin, the darker your tattoo will be.
Henna is also used as an all natural hair dye for darker colors. Many consumers prefer henna hair dye because it does not contain ammonia, peroxides, or other chemicals that could potentially damage your hair.
Henna is beloved because it is all-natural, beautiful, and good for you. if you are looking for a fun temporary tattoo or a wonderful new hair dye, give henna products a try.
Helpers dig in for new hockey pitch
9:27am Thursday 4th August 2011
BOLTON Hockey Club has started building its £100,000 new pitch — and hundreds of people came along to watch.
Members of the club broke the ground on Sunday to mark the official start of the building work.
and they also held a huge family fundraising day to help drum up the cash to pay for it.
The club has already raised about £20,000 and now faces a race against time to find the remaining £80,000 in just two years.
Club chairman Carel Van Bentum said: “Our aim is to create a multicultural club at the centre of the local community.
we know it is going to be a long, hard process to raise the full £100,000.
“We are completely dedicated to getting a pitch here because not only will it benefit Bolton Hockey Club, but it will also be a great asset for the entire community around Bolton who will be able to utilise the pitch.”
there were a host of activities throughout the weekend, including a two-day mini hockey tour, which raised nearly £300.
The weekend concluded with a fun day on Sunday, with children’s face painting, henna tattoos, a bouncy castle and inflatable obstacle course plus a home-made cake stall, raffle, Bhangra music and a barbecue.
Anyone wanting to help can contact Carel on 07939 147935 or email@example.com Go to boltonhc.co.uk for more information.

Syracuse Chiefs (International League)”Pink Cocktail Party” with guest Billy Baldwin, July 20Actor Billy Baldwin has headlined a diverse array of projects in his day, from early ’90s fare such as Backdraft and Flatliners to recent Lifetime original movie The CraigsList Killer. Baldwin’s next headlining performance occurs in Syracuse on Wednesday, as he’ll be the featured guest at the Chiefs’ “Pink Cocktail Party” breast cancer awareness fundraiser. Proceeds from the party benefit the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, established by the actor’s mother after her own successful battle against the disease. The elder Baldwin, a Syracuse native, will be on hand to throw out the first pitch.
Bradenton Marauders (Florida State League)Ketchup vs. Mustard Duel, July 21After years of peaceful side-by-side coexistence, ketchup and mustard have recently entered into a heated battle for ballpark bragging rights. The Marauders will determine just which condiment has more clout by letting fans choose red or yellow T-shirts upon entering the ballpark — whichever T-shirt they run out of first wins! (The fans who chose “correctly” shall then be awarded prizes). A condiment art station will be set up on the concourse so that fans may create yellow and red-hued masterpieces, while celebrity culinary guest Jamie Gregorich (Hell’s Kitchen) whips up creative concoctions making liberal use of both items.
Round Rock Express (Pacific Coast League)Renew your Vows and Marriage Enrichment Expo, July 21The willingness to renew one’s vows within a Minor League Baseball stadium would seem to be an excellent indication of marital health, but the Express are aware that it takes even more than that to ensure long-term domestic bliss. The Express are inviting couples onto the field prior to Thursday’s game in order to “refresh their commitment to life-long love,” an affirming act that, numbers permitting, will also establish a Guinness World Record attempt in the category of “wedding vow renewal.” following this highly public declaration of fidelity, all fans (married or not) are invited to attend an in-game “marriage enrichment expo.”
State College Spikes (New York-Penn League)Tribute to Managerial Implosions with Replica First Base Giveaway, July 21Spikes manager Gary Robinson went on a tirade for the ages last season, throwing an on-field fit that culminated with him stealing first base on the way back to the dugout and then autographing it for a fan. this classic meltdown (viewed more than 675,000 times on YouTube) has inspired Thursday’s “Tribute to Managerial Implosions,” a theme night celebration highlighted by a “Replica First Base” giveaway to the first 1,000 fans. The evening doubles as the team’s annual “Mystery Night,” and this year’s conundrum that needs to be solved is — what else? — “Who Stole First Base?” Robinson is no longer with the club, so your guess is as good as mine.
Inland Empire 66ers (California League)Lucha Libre Angels Mask Giveaway, July 22Angels fans interested in cultivating a less-than-Angelic persona would do well to attend Friday’s contest in Inland Empire, as the Anaheim affiliated 66ers are giving away Lucha Libre masks to the first 1,500 fans in attendance. this Mexican wrestling-inspired piece of headwear features a face-encompassing Angels logo, with small slits provided for the eyes, nose and mouth. The mass distribution of these items will result in a stadium full of aspiring luchadors, ready to body slam any and all potential impediments to a decisive home team victory.
Richmond Flying Squirrels (Eastern League)”What if?” Night with Richmond Rhinos Hat Giveaway, July 22Way back in October of 2009, Richmond’s new Eastern League franchise held a name-the-team contest featuring the following choices: Flatheads, Flying Squirrels, Hush Puppies, Rock Hoppers and Rhinos. “Flying Squirrels” emerged victorious, of course, but when it comes to the other choices, that nagging question of “what if” will always remain. The team is embracing this pervasive sense of doubt with Friday’s “What if? Night”, a celebration of uncertainty in which the team takes the field as the “Richmond Rhinos.” The first 2,500 fans age 15 and up receive a Rhinos cap, a keepsake that will serve as a permanent reminder of the alternate reality we very well could have ended up residing in.
Dayton Dragons (Midwest League)Sellout Record Celebration with poster giveaway, July 23The Dragons sold out their 815th consecutive ballgame earlier this month, a feat unprecedented in professional sports history. this impressive accomplishment will be celebrated on Saturday, with the team staging a pregame ceremony honoring individuals from many walks of life whose combined efforts made it all possible. But none of it could have happened without the unwavering support of the region’s dedicated fans, who will receive a commemorative poster upon leaving the ballpark. not since the last Eagles reunion tour have a bunch of sellouts been so enthusiastically celebrated.
Lake County Captains (Midwest League)”A Captains Story” Skipper Figurine, July 23The Captains play in Eastlake, Ohio, a short drive from the house in which the holiday classic The Christmas Story was filmed. The team celebrated this local connection to cinematic history with last year’s “Leg Lamp” figurine, and this year’s incarnation is unique as well. On Saturday, the first 1,500 fans in attendance receive a bobblehead featuring Skipper with his nose magnetically affixed to the foul pole. this display of mascot ineptitude is of course a direct reference to one of the film’s most famous scenes, in which a character’s tongue is affixed to a flag pole as the result of a particularly ill-advised triple dog dare.
Bowie Baysox (Eastern League)Bryce Harper “Future of the Beltway” Ticket Package, July 25-27Bryce Harper is the Justin Bieber of Minor League Baseball — a disconcertingly young phenom whose mere presence triggers unrelenting waves of fan hysteria. The 18-year-old Washington wunderkind is currently plying his trade as a member of the Harrisburg Senators, but for how long? The Bowie Baysox certainly plan on capitalizing when Harper and his teammates roll into town Monday, as the club is offering a unique “Future of the Beltway” ticket package. For $42, fans get seats to all three games of the series in a prime location by the visitor’s dugout, as well as early entrance to the stadium so that Harper can be observed taking batting practice. those wanting even more intimate access are likely to get slapped with a restraining order.
Lehigh Valley IronPigs (International League)Pat Gillick Hall of Fame Bobblehead, July 26Baseball executives generally aren’t immortalized in bobblehead form, but then again most baseball executives aren’t Pat Gillick. in fact, only one is: Pat Gillick. The legendary general manager, who assembled three World Championship teams during his career, is being inducted into the Hall of Fame this weekend. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, an affiliate of Gillick’s most recent employer, the Philadelphia Phillies, are celebrating this accomplishment by distributing bobbleheads to the first 3,000 adults in attendance. Fans wishing to swap the Gillick bobblehead for that of another individual should do so quickly — the trade deadline is rapidly approaching.
Bonus Coverage: Because both protocol and common sense demand it, here are seven promotions that could have been included in last week’s column — could have been but, of course, weren’t:
Tats and Bats with Fake Tattoo Giveaway (Bowie Baysox, July 14): 1,000 fans received temporary tattoos featuring the BaySox’s fishy new alternate logo, while two went ahead and got permanently inked up in exchange for 2012 season tickets.
Duffers Night (Fort Myers Miracle, July 14): A celebration of Southwest Florida’s abundance of golf courses, with more than 200 free rounds given away throughout the course of the evening.
Kristen Voda Appearance (Clinton LumberKings, July 15): The Speed Channel personality threw out a first pitch, but ironically enough its speed was never determined.
Patriots Night (Lowell Spinners, July 15): The highlight of this celebration was, as usual, Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski booting footballs into the crowd.
Centenarian National Anthem (Toledo Mud Hens, July 15): The 101-year-old Freda Sacket joined a local choir in a rousing rendition of the National Anthem.
B-Mets Playing Cards (Binghamton Mets, July 16): Decks were handed out to fans upon entry, with randomly selected packs containing player-autographed cards.
One Millionth Fan Celebration/Bobby Cox Night (Gwinnett Braves, July 18): The G-Braves lavished the 1,000,000th fan in franchise history with a bounty of gifts as special guest Bobby Cox looked on with approval.
We all know that temporary tattoos are the perfect giveaways. A lot of organizers check out temporary tattoo manufacturers to have fake tattoos made. They check out manufacturers knowing what to expect. They expect that as long as they deal with a reliable manufacturer, they’ll have giveaways that can help them achieve success in the event that they’re organizing. This success can usually be measured by the raised team spirit or funds depending on what the event is for.
But not a lot of people know that you can use temporary tattoos to advertise as well. It’s a simple process really. All you need to do is contact temporary tattoo manufacturers and check out their designs. You can then choose a design or customize your own. for the best effect, put some text on the fake tattoos. It could be the name of your company or a sales message. best of all, you can put your website’s address on it.
Putting your website’s address is the most efficient way of advertising your company. Obviously, you’re just trying to optimize the space. This is not reserved for impermanent tattoos. even in billboards, you really can’t put everything that there is to say about your company. So this limitation is not for fake tattoos only. sure, you can put in a sales message or your company. but then what? To maximize its effect, they should know where to go to avail themselves of your products or services. Putting in your website’s address will give them all the information there is to know about your product or service. Of course, they wouldn’t see what you’re offering upfront. but at least they know where they can check you out. If they see 500 temporary tattoos with your site’s address on it, they’ll be sure to check it out and see all the information there is about your company. So when you check out temporary tattoo manufacturers, ask how much it is to customize the text.
Sure, there are a lot of ways aside from fake tattoos on how you can advertise your website. There are free and paid services that you can take advantage of to give your site more exposure. but where’s the fun in that? Also, you have to take care of offline advertising as well. If you contact temporary tattoo manufacturers, you’ll see at once how fun it is to use temporary tattoos as an advertising strategy. You can then organize an event or at least sponsor an event to give your site exposure. If you have the resources, you can organize an event on your own to launch your products or services. You can then use fake tattoos as giveaways and as an advertising tool as well. but if there’s no reason for you to hold an event, you can contact event organizers to be a sponsor. in return for the sponsorship, you can give out temporary tattoos with your website’s address on it. If the event has 500 attendees, you’ll have 500 people checking out your site after the event.
So go ahead and choose from the temporary tattoo manufacturers available online. Check out what they have to offer so you can have a better idea on how it can help you advertise your site. as far as exposure is concerned, more is always better. It’s a bonus that fake tattoos provide quality exposure as well as spirit building fun.
