We did this with paintable wallpaper, which is nice because it has texture as well.  When you're tired of it, you just peel it off and wash off the glue.

I have those kinds of lights too.  One thing you can do is replace them with silver-topped bulbs.  They are the same size as those round bulbs and are also meant for the bathroom, but they are coated with silver on top so the light comes out of the sides.  The lights gets diffused, the bulbs don't look quite so ugly and all you have to do is change the light bulbs.  They're a bit more expensive but much nicer.  They are at the bulb aisle at Home Depot.

Soak in water while you put some modge podge on the surface.  Then when you lay it on top of the sticky surface, it won't soak up any of the modge podge since its already wet, and it won't wrinkle.  Then, when it's dry, put another coat of modge podge to really seal it in.

How did you do this with out the paper wrinkling?  I always have the problem that no matter how small a piece of paper I use, it always wrinkles when I put mod-podge on top of it.

A great way to prevent wrinkling is to soak the paper for a few minutes before applying it to the surface, then use your wet fingers to gently smooth out any wrinkles.  Then when it's dry, add another layer of modge podge.,

Another site to check out :Books for Soldiers

It has a birthday section where you can send cards or postcards to soldiers with birthdays coming up.  It might be nice for those of you who do paper crafts.

I used my old magazines, especially the artsy, fashiony ones like W, for wrapping paper.  The not-so-pretty pages sometimes get shredded for padding inside.  The presents look unique and pretty, and I don't feel badly that the paper just gets thrown away afterwards. 
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re:In my opinion the best reciped websites on: March 04, 2004 01:38:44 PM
I tend to use epicurious a lot, just because the recipe list is so huge, and because a lot of people leave ratings and comments that are helpful choosing recipes.

http://www.cooking.com also has a lot of good recipes too.  

And of course, I post recipes a lot on my blog, Foodgoat (http://foodgoat.blogspot.com)
