1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / hanging mirrors on: June 21, 2006 05:52:10 PM
hi everyone!
I have a very long and narrow bathroom, which i would like to widen using mirrors - what i was envisioning was to take a large, cheap mirror, take it out of the frame and (carefully!) smash it so i can hang the large pieces with some space between them so it's kind of like art but still helping to enlarge the room. 
The trick is, i don't know how to hang them without DESTROYING the wall when i take them down.  I rent the apartment I'm in and my landlords are laidback about painting and such, but i don't think they want me totally destroying the wall.  The walls are plaster because i live in a VERY old building. 
I don't think those little mirror clips will work since i want to have several pieces.  I wasn't planning on using a frame at all.

any suggestions?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / online scrapbook shopping on: May 20, 2006 08:30:42 PM
Hi all,
I just got into scrapbooking (as in, this weekend!) mostly because I can no longer resist the temptation of an AWESOME scrapbooking store being down the street from me! 
However, I was wondering if you guys had a suggestion for places to buy "alternative" embellishments - i guess you could say.  Right now I am working on my first project, a smaller scrapbook of concert tickets I have collected over the years (I have lots, i swear), but since most of them are of rock and indie shows, I feel like a lot of the embellishments aren't suited to the vibe I am trying to create.  I have some really amazing paper but I'm kind of at a loss of how else to decorate around the tickets - any sites out there that cater to scrapbooking specifically for teens and 20-somethings?

PS - If anyone is interested, the cool scrapbook store near me has a website: http://www.scrapbn.com/index.html
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / 90's themed party on: January 04, 2006 02:29:04 PM
Hi everyone,
i'm hoping to enlist some creative assistance with a 90's themed party I am having!  I have asked everyone to come dressed stylishly 90's (whether as a specific person or in general), and we're all having a great time coming up with things!  What I need some help with is the following:

FOOD:  I figure Pizza, and nacho chips and pretzels are pretty safe - but is there anything wicked 90's that i'm just blanking on?

decorations:  I have NO IDEA about this at all! :\  I might try and buy some neon pink and green paper and then print off some photos of 90's icons to stick on the walls, I might look into buying some colored lightbulbs too but I don't have a lot of lighting in my apartment so i'm afraid it will be too dark.

PARTY FAVORS:  i want to have some miscellanous cheap or handmade things to give away - I have some glow sticks and i was thinknig maybe some seed bead necklaces and braceletts?  Huh

Also, what are everyone's favorite cheesy 90's sogns?  i want to make a playlist for my computer of awesome tunes everyone will remember!
