I had to re-read the text a few times to understand that the rats are fake..

Would you like to share clues about how you shaped the brownies?  Huh

And don't worry about the shoes - I got married in Chucks  Grin

The Hebrew version there is not very accurate either (actually translates to "I love her", which is not what you want to say, I think.. Smiley)

So, if it's a guy telling a girl: Ani ohev otach
Girl telling guy:Ani ohevet otcha

and to be politically correct -
Guy telling guy: Ani ohev otacha
Girl telling girl: Ani ohevet otach

Of course there's the whole Hebrew letters thing, but I won't get you into that..

I made magnets this size, with my own illustration behind it, and gave them away at my wedding as thank-you gifts!

My guests really liked them, and I even got some requests for a new one from peopel who's magnets fell on the floor and broke.

My tip - use really good, strong glue - those tend to fall apart more easily then the tiny ones.

Oooooohhh.. beaded curtain...!!!  Shocked

Thanks for all the ideas - love them all - drawer pulls could be used on the baskets I planned to put in the bookcases (a-la Ikea), and a beaded curtain will solve oh-so-many privacy problems! (they'll all be so busy looking at the lovely toys, they won't even notice little ol' me behind it..)

I knew I could count on you guys to rescue me  Cheesy

My mom suggested turning them into christmas ornaments? Might be fun.

And then there's the pain of being Jewish  Grin
Christmas trees solve so many recycling problems!

I can see that those toys are a problem - you can't even take them apart without breaking something because of those screwy screws, they're not soft so they make lousy cat toys, and they're too big to fit into any existing projects.. even charities won't take them because of their low entertainment value!

I have a bunch (probably 30-40) plastic toys from Happy Meals and such.. Way too big to be used for jewelry, with no common theme whatsoever (other then being, well, plastic).

I'm looking for ideas on what to do with them - preferably something I can use as a decoration in the house, since I plan to decorate my living room in a "kid's play-room" theme, and preferably something I can do without cutting the plastic (because I don't have a saw here, and a sharp knife won't do..)

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks everyone!
Turns out we'll be building boxes with squares of mattress on, and we'll complement them with bear-shaped seats we found in Ikea..
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for low, comfortable seats? on: October 18, 2004 01:00:59 PM

I'm just moving to a new apprtment, and since I don't own a sofa, it is time to find some sort of seating arrangement..

What I have in mind is 3-4 very low couches.. low but comfortable, think armchairs that are floor-height.
Beanbag chairs would be the perfect solutions, but with 3 cats in the house, I discovered the hard way that they are often mistaken for litter boxes..  Tongue

So - any ideas of how I can build these kind of seats? or other suggestions for low, comfortable seats?
