I've checked out more books from my library.  Some are more "traditional" such as how to make a wreath out of dried plants.  They have some interesting information, but not as interesting crafts.  This one has potential:  A Gardener's Craft Companion: simple, modern projects to make with garden treasures by Sandra Salamony & Maryellen Driscoll.
And I checked out a DVD called Rebecca's Garden:  Volume 5- Herb Gardening.  It has information on harvesting, drying, storing, herbal soaps, cooking with herbs, aromatherapy, and some recipes.  I only made it up to soaps, as it was 1:00 and I was tired.  I have few other books to look at.  Currently I'm reading The Savage Garden.  It's about carnivorous plants!

I'm not sure how that works, if it's a real plant or not because some of them have fortunes on their leaves.  There are also some that are grown out of cans that look like miniature pop cans. 
You might be able to get a plant to grow out of an eggshell...  I'm thinking that if you poke a tiny hole in either end, blow out the yolk (like at easter) and put in a little soil, a little water, and a seed, it might grow out through one of the holes...  like how a potatoe plant will grow out of a hole in a shoebox. 
Um...rosemary has a better smell if you add eggshells to its soil (improves the amount of lime)
