1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Dressing up blinds? on: May 04, 2007 10:57:16 PM
Hi all!  I just moved into a new apartment that is graced with institutional white mini-blinds.  I'm hesitant to drill into the walls in order to hang curtains, but I thought I could spice the blinds themselves up.  This is from the HGTV website:

I can't quite tell how the ribbon is attached.  Is it on the blinds themselves or attached to the string?  Any ideas?

I thought with that, adding some beads to the pull string, and maybe covering the top frame with something would be improvements that I could remove before I move out.  Has anyone done anything like this before?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl and Black Crystal Earrings on: April 17, 2007 09:47:01 PM
I'm going to a formal dance at the end of this month and as I skipped my prom in high school and greatly regret it, I've been going all out.  But I could never find any earrings that I thought were perfect so I finally just made some!

I'm too new to post pics, so here's a link.  Roll Eyes

I used freshwater pearls and the crystals are swarovski except for the teardrop shaped one, which is just glass I think.

I've been thinking that I should switch out the 6mm jump rings to 4mm as they seem rather... prominent right now.  What do you think??
