Unless everyone is just extremely artistic, I’d say there’s a good chance stencils are used for the majority of projects. And there is no shame in that:) you can even make your own stencil with card stock or cardboard and a good knife or scissors (and maybe a printout from the computer to trace!
No way. A lot of my closest friends in my chapter joined sophomore and junior year. It will be challenging at times (likely a lot of the class will be freshmen) but if it’s something you want to do and don’t, you will have regrets.
The best thing to do is contact your national hq to ensure a smooth transition :)
There is a ridiculous amount of activity on this blog but the past month has been submission and question slow. Feel free to even drop by and say hi, I’d love to get to know some of you :)
I honestly haven’t ever done this before and haven’t come across any tutorials for that in my years running this blog but hopefully someone can help you out! I love that you’re so ambitious with your crafting!
Start by making plans with one or two girls, and including other girls in on the plans too but keeping it small. Being more involved will give you a reason to get to know the girls you may not have a chance to talk to otherwise as well :) they all joined for the same reasons you did so I’m sure they’d be more than happy you made an effort!
Yes it’s a good idea not to repeat a recent gift. Try to think outside the box… Look back to past things that maybe worked really well and try to expand on them? I’m not really sure of good ideas because this wasn’t a tradition in my chapter. Maybe also include some cute way of presenting what the gift is too… Try to make it fun! As for smaller gifts.. if you have enough people available to help, try to make some form of slightly personalized craft to include because it will look like a lot of thought went into it. And the way of presenting these as well will make the best impression! (Fancy gift wrap?) I wish I was more help for this. Hopefully some people will have ideas? :)
Would anyone like to answer this? x
I certainly hope this would have zero impact on your ability to rush or join. Go with an open mind, be yourself and if you are a good fit for the chapter and they are a good fit for you, you should have no different odds of getting a bid than any other woman.Edit: I can only speak from my own personal experiences and the experiences others have shared with me, and for what I would hope and expect from highly educated women.
