Thank you!
Well I'm working on my polymer clay site. Right now I have a site that's not very nice looking at ivillage, it has a lot of photos and explanations of what the clay is and how things are done.

I have like 100 little blue pill bottles. (I don't have issue, I swear! My grandparents' friends...) Anyway, Does anyone know (or care, for that matter) what I could do with them?
Thanks!

what material, size, shape are they?  

They sound like they'd make cool covers for white xmas lights, to me.  If the tops seal well, they'd make great spice containers-- blue would keep out the light that spoils the flavor compounds.

they're plastic, and the lids (which are a bit bigger than the actual bottle) are roughly the size of a qurater.
What do you mean holders for christmas lights, or did you think they were bigger?
They're basicly tubes with white lids.
Thanks for the ideas!

How about gluing a bunch of them together, openings up,  sort of in a circle, then you can use it as a mini vase, with lots of different shortish flowers and leaves in the various bottles.  Maybe tie the glued ones with a ribbon  around the middle, or glue raffia, or cording around the bottom half of the outside.

Here's a take on what Marti said: glue them together in a 10 X10 square and screw into the wall at the corners or set on a desk-top; instand organizer for paper-clips, staples, rubber-bands, maybe even pens and pencils if they're tall enough, and you could leave some space between some of the rows for mail if you wanted.

If it's a bottle and its little you have to bead it!

after you bead put a quote or a wish parchment in it, or a fourtune. Yeah fourtune bottles! Grin

A slight variation question- my collection is more like Pringles cans, the french-fried onion cans, Torengos, that sort of thing.  And a couple of the Tootsie Roll bank cans.  So they are all plastic or cardboard with lids, and I keep thinking I can make something out of them...

At this point all I've come up with is doing decopauge banks or pencil holders... or covering them and using as a gift holder of some sort.  Any more suggestions?
