Hi there!

I don't know if you guys have done this before as a community, but I thought perhaps it would be a nice idea to give KT a cool "name guitar strap" by Jodi Head with her name (or something else) on it: http://www.jodihead.com/name.html for her birthday (june 23rd, but of course you know that ;))

This strap is pretty expensive, but when we do this as a group, perhaps it'll work ;-)

Now I'm not sure (IF this is to be found as a good idea) how we're going to do the money thing, anyone an idea?

-x-

PS, could also be a congratz on album 3 present :wink:

UPDATE BY MOD on May 12th (see page 5):

So, after a moderator-style-like brainstorming, this is what we're going to do:

1- Please fellow forumers post here your ideas/suggestions for a birthday present. If you don't have any idea, please indicate if you'd like to participate (generally it's around 5 £) so that we can have a rough idea of our budget.

2- We will then (one week later or so) throw a poll in order to finally decide on the pressies

3- A moderator will collect the money (details to follow when defined)

4- A birthday card will be made (details to follow - we previously had something that worked well: each forumer who wanted to contribute sent their message/images via PM or email to the "birthday card designer")

Thanks you all for your attention and participation :D


      Participants list: (26) (22 needed) We need YOU! ;)

Hi! That is an awsome present idea! We do usually give KT a gift from the forum and a thread is created a little nearer the time, some times in this section or the 'chit chat' section where we throw around ideas for gifts and that, the money is normally sent through to one person when the final cost has been split up between those taking part!

So when the thread comes about you should deffo put that idea in! :D

Cool! I'm very glad you like the idea ^^

Is there the same person every year who arranges this? 'Cause I'd love to do it, the next months I've got enough time on my hands.

We could also make this an album three gift straps. When we know what the album's going to be called we can put it up there (or just KT or KT Tunstall ;))

We could include the little flower from the ETTT cover, just an idea

Brilliant idea!! I'm surely in!! :D
Maybe we can put a meaningful text on it instead of her name? Or something cool, something that makes a statement maybe?

Cool, there's brainstorming going on now, I like that :D
The ETTT flower's a great idea, can someone make an Adobe Illustrator file of that and send it to me? I'm not an Illustrator hero :P

I already e-mailed with Jodi and she told me this about shipping and making the strap:

Quote:
"we ship express mail, i think its maybe $35.00 to London, [making the] strap should take a week, depending on the name"


A meaningful text would be awesome, but remember that the text can't be too long. For example. Sheryl Crow has got some of these Jodi Head straps that say "SHERYL" or "NO WAR", I even think "KT Tunstall" would be a maximum in length, Jodi only has one font style and size:

OK, so post your 'meaningful text ideas' here! :D

Ah then perhaps the strap should just say *KT* rather than KT Tunstall, keeping it simple ya know. I think it would be cute

I love this strap idea!
We have almost 4 months to think about what to write :mrg:

So far I'm thinking "I love OhRay" :p
