Just wanted to add my 2 cents on the toothpaste issue, it definitely is a good idea to check out the label before you buy. Sad


And I must agree on the wonderfulness of the dollar store, although I have also bought q-tips there that were terrible.  I actually scratched my ear on one when the plastic tip poked through the cotton.  Ow.

I am doing my bathroom in a pin-ups theme, but I had a hard time finding cute pin-up pictures that weren't in books or large calendars.  But at my local Half Price Books, I found a 2006 Taschen calendar (like those word a day calendars) with 365 beautiful little pictures for me to choose from! 
They were just the right size for me to cut out and Mod Podge to my heart's content!

Are those the ceiling tiles that they use in schools?  If they're what I'm thinking of, we once decorated a friend's room by pushing the tiles up and then anchoring swatches of fabric and wind chimes between the tile and the grid it lays on.  (Does that make sense?)  I know you mentioned the ceiling is low, but just another idea...

Can you hang stuff from the walls with nails?  You can always mosiac a mirror's frame....  And you could do your own wall prints using designs typically used as henna tattoos.  This site has an overview on henna, http://www.kenzi.com/HENNA/HTML/hennahistory.htm
The symbols have meaning, such as protection, strength and beauty, so it might mean more than just pretty pictures!  :-)

I think it's lovely.  How did you make it?  You mentioned polymer clay....

That looks absolutely amazing!  How are you making your fabrics choices?  Whatever strikes you, or did you pick them beforehand? 

I'm just in awe, I love it!!  The eyes are very striking, something about that fabric make them very lifelike!
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Skeleton Key? on: August 23, 2005 08:06:24 PM
I'm with kiwitart.  What about attached to an old altered book?  This may not be the best idea because it would require copious amounts of hot glue, but I do like the shadow box idea!

I can see where you got your inspiration from in the museum, but you took it and made it your own, I love it!
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: College/Cheap but not horribly unhealthy ideas on: August 21, 2005 07:54:45 PM
When I was in college, my roommate and I used to dress up EVERYTHING with spices.  When we were feeling fancy we'd use the spice mixes intended for bread dipping.  Those were especially good for adding to cheap spaghetti sauce; throw some in blender with some mushrooms or peppers and you have your own expensive tasting spaghetti sauce!  We'd also make our variations with the cheap spices we'd get at discount stores.  Italian blends are basically just rosemary, thyme, garlic, etc.  Big Lots or Macfrugal's in our area would have large containers of dried spices for less than a dollar, so instead of spending 5 bucks on a small jar of pre-mixed, we'd spend 4 on a GIANT container that we kept in a Tupperware jar.
We put it in everything; eggs, macaroni and cheese, cheap salad dressing....

Also, hitting up an ethnic grocery store is always a great way to find something new to berak the tedium of boring food American food and usually for a really good price.  Our smaller local Asian store I'd go to was were I'd stock up on Japanese pepper and edamame, but they'd make kim-bop (Korean seaweed roll with rice and vegatables) fresh daily and sell an roll for 1.50!
