I'd paint it deep blue and glue rinestones up there to look like stars.

A quick fix and something I've done before is to use oil pastels and color in the pane(s), it gives a good stained glass feel and you can match the colors to the decor.  An added bonus is that if you do decide to move some day, you can scrape it off.

By the way, you don't have to be an artist, you could always color each pane a solid color.

This is why I'm not having kids!  lol...

I agree, figure out what hippo needs and you could always tell her that hippos swim so they need room to move thus no pants.  A tank top would also be easy.  Good luck!

25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Button Hole Presser Foot Question on: June 25, 2005 02:05:50 PM
It is possible but difficult, my suggestion is to draw something like this on your fabric:
>  I <
<  I >
>  I <
<  I >

Make sure you don't have any stitches cross the middle (black) line, because that's where you'll cut the hole.  Sew along the red lines.

27  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: What do you eat? (vegetarians) on: June 22, 2005 01:26:28 PM
My hubby and I are veggies and this is what we usually eat:

Breakfast: cereal, bagel w/ cream cheese, biscuits with soy sausage, or cold pizza

Lunch: 5-Cheese Hot Pockets, Trader Joe's has great frozen enchiladas that I love, sandwhiches with soy meat or moc-tuna salad (made with chick peas) or whatever we had for dinner the night before

Dinner: Pizza at least once a week, we go out for Mexican way too often, veggie burgers, Thai, Indian, I also make Hamburger Helper (ones without chicken fat) and other dinner kits with soy "meat".
28  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: any ideas for blank walls? on: May 22, 2005 05:28:24 PM
I was in your shoes 6 or 7 years ago.  I have been looking in every store I go into for interesting black and white post cards (about .50-.75 each)  and hanging them up.  Go to the craft store and get some frames for them (.50-$1 each) and make an interesting display on a large wall.  There's no need to just hang them up straight accross, put them in clusters or groupings.  You'd be amazed how many people have complimented me on my "art".

If black and white isn't your thing, you can use color but try to stick with some theme... all Van Goghs or all shades of red (something like that) to keep them complimenting each other.

I now have a large cluster of about 20 and the whole wall cost maybe $30 and I didn't buy them all at once, so you can set aside maybe $5 a week to so "art" shopping.

Another thing that works is to go to thrift stores and buy old paintings $1-5 each.  Hang them as is or modify them like in this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29459.0

Good luck!
