cool!  i save them too, i glue them into a 'coffee table' journal book with a chinese inspired cover, people that come over always read them- my favorite is when i get two of the same one, i go back to the original page and do a mirror image.

i work for WomenRising www.womenrising.org, a social service organization for women.  we have a domestic violence shelter and one of the things that we do is art therapy for women and children (2 separate groups) affected by dv and substance abuse.  if you'd like to donate to this cause let me know.

i don't live far from nyc and visit often- i adore the art deco architecture, and i'm glad i got to put touches of it in my otherwise arts and crafts decorated home.

and i just added a deco clock too.

thanks!  i love the tiles too- it's hard to see but the green ones are varying in color like jade.  and i'm going to try to get someone to fix the tiles in the bathroom, only 20 little ones are damaged- and i found replacements at a local tile store so when i get the money to do it i'm going to have it professionally fixed (i don't think i can do this one myself!)
185  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / bathroom redo- 1920's house on: August 15, 2007 07:38:19 PM
i have a house from 1922 and it's mostly in the arts and crafts style which i love but i wanted to do something different in my bathroom.  i don't have any before pictures but here's a description: the bathroom floor was covered in cheap vinyl tile in a 'basket weave' gold print.  the walls were mint green and the window had no curtains only a ugly off white aluminum shade. the medicine cabinet mirror was unfinished dark wood and the cabinet for the sink was white with fake 'light wood' trim. there was one of those 'theater lighting strips in brass.  oh, and there was a popcorn ceiling (yuck!)

first i ripped up the tile- i was going to put some nicer vinyl tile on it until i could afford something better but discovered the original tile on the floor!  it's cracked in a couple of places so eventually i'll have to fix it but it's still really pretty.

next i painted the walls white with black trim around the windows and  and door.  i painted the mirror black and white and the cabinet trim black, then i added jadeite knobs to it.

i put on a quality black toilet seat, & added new sink fixtures.  then i sewed the shower curtain, a window valence, and a matching toilet lid cover. lastly, i got some tips from this posting http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2458.0 and made a roller shade.

i'm really proud of it.  here's some pictures:

187  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: THE GENERIC BOYFRIEND GIFT THREAD: A How-To! on: August 14, 2007 02:24:04 PM
for valentines day i made my husband a comic book of our love story.  i made it in black and white with a few color touches and the look of a 90's fanzine.  i did it all on my computer.  i couldn't draw so i used images i found online and altered them to fit the story. after i printed it out i put each page in a page protector and then used one of those report cover plastic sliders to hold it all together. here's are some links to a couple of the pages:




i was very happy with how it came out and he really loved it.
188  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Humane Society Fundraiser: Art Needed on: August 14, 2007 01:43:46 PM
hi.  i'm on the board at my local humane society: plainfield area humane society (pahs).  i'm organizing an art auction fundraiser and need some original art to auction off- it can be anything you've made (i think pieces with cats and dogs will be more likely to get high bids though).  all proceeds would benefit the humane society and go directly to updating our very old shelter.  if you'd like to donate a piece or need more information let me know.  thanks!

here's a link to the PAHS websitehttp://west.petfinder.com/shelters/pahs.html:
189  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Dice hairsticks on: August 06, 2007 06:11:26 AM
awesome!  love them.  my dollar stores also have lots of colored dice -no hair stix though!  Sad

wasteofpaint, to use them you just put your hair in position (i like a french twist w/hair sticking out the top) then put the stick through one way (to the left for example) and twist it so you push it through the opposite way (the right side for example).  hope that makes sense, i've been loving these sticks since 1992 when my college roommate introduced me (thanks angie!)
