Very cute!  Did you laminate them, or are they covered with something else?

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?
4  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

9  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!

the neck piece actually looks like it might be the easiest part - if i were you i'd just find some heavy fabric in a color close to the color you chose for the dress (or matching fabric if it's durable) and go to town decorating it with funky beads and baubles. 

The dress itself looks like maybe a simple empire waist with extra fabric in the back for a train? i would sew maybe one layer of tulle into the waist and then right below your knees sew some more into the base tulle - as many layers as it takes to make it fluffy.
