DIY Menstruation Celebration Party! Really! Have a friend who just got her period? Here are some great ideas of what to serve/wear/do at her party! From the Period Store’s launch party. AND they have a good sense of humor:

We were so happy to have the opportunity to celebrate this bloody business with our online and offline friends. 

To make it easier to find the party, we had a huge red balloon outside of the building with a sign that read “Are you on your period?”

Some Period foods included red velvet cupcakes, uterus sugar cookies, blood suckers (they were so good!). The drinks were also red of course - some favorites were the Italian Soda and Strawberry Ginger Cocktail. There was a photo boothan art stationhair braiding, temporary tattoos, and amazing party crowns created by Ryan out of crepe paper, tampons and pantyliners.  

If only they had mentioned Margaret…

truebluemeandyou: This is how you launch a brand! Go to the link for more photos and commentary. Love it when a brand has a great sense of humor. This is for all my new readers - you know who you are  - enjoy this DIY inspiration. I think having more estrogen in your lives would make you happier people :)

How great are these Rock Collages by mixed media artist Cori Kindred on Etsy? Her shop is closed until 2013 but you could do something inspired by this with your favorite rocks that remind you of the qualities of someone you care about. Her website is www.corikindred.com. On my FB page I even suggested doing a “speciman” type of collection using a chewed pencil (writer’s block?) and mundane items to capture someones personality. EDIT: her Etsy store is now open.
