1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Baby Memory Book Topic Ideas on: February 26, 2009 03:26:16 PM
My son is seven weeks old and I need to get cracking on his memory book. I have a scrapbook and all the supplies. What I need is the topics/ideas.

What kind of stuff should I put in there? I know the standard type stuff (all the stats, early photos, footprints). What else should I include?!

First giggle? First poo? Most sleepless night?

I need ideas before I forget.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Vinyl Tile vs Real Tile for a bathroom on: February 17, 2009 06:04:32 AM
I need to do something with the linoleum in my bathroom.

I was at the big home improvement center that starts with an L looking at tile when I found the vinyl tile section. There are a lot of choices and it's cheap (some ceramic tiles are cheaper though) and EASY. I'm focusing on the easy part.

Anyone use this in a bathroom? Will it work around the toilet? Do I pull up the toilet, lay the tile and put the toilet back, or cut around the toilet? Any comments or suggestions appreciated.


3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Bathroom vanity light recommendations to match existing hardward on: June 18, 2008 10:17:02 AM
We have the spa line from Umbra for our towel hooks and bars and toilet paper holder and love them. We're hoping to get a new light (double or single) for above the mirror that goes well with the hardware we already own. It's hard to find a black light fixture. Any suggestions? Any sites you'd recommend with good, inexpensive lighting fixtures?

I found this one for $97 and like it so far.


4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Variegated Thread in Cross-Stitch (Ever used it?) on: April 01, 2008 11:21:06 AM
I was thinking of using variegated thread in a cross stitch to give it some depth and color, without having to get too technical and switch threads. Anyone tried it? Does it work? It looks as though the individual floss threads aren't actually variegated, it's just a bunch of different colors in one skein. Any input?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Carpet tile experiences - flor and the like - looking for input on: February 24, 2008 12:59:30 PM
Have you used flor.com carpet tiles or something similar? I'm needing to redo my upstairs flooring (two bedrooms, a short hallway - and what about the stairs?!) and I can find some tiles at Home Dept and at flor.com that are comparable to professional installation.

Mind you I'm choosing the cheapest flor and the cheapest installed carpet.

Have you used anything like this? Did they work? What do you love about it? What do you hate about it? Any feedback is appreciated!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 'Cubicle Sweet Cubicle' counted cross-stitch holiday gift on: December 22, 2007 05:37:25 PM
Made this for a coworker. she liked it. Took about three hours. Crappy cameraphone pic.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Upside Down Curtains? Curtains for bottom half of window only? on: June 27, 2006 03:28:29 PM
I need suggestions to make curtains that will cover the bottom half of my bedroom windows but can be extended / expanded to cover the top half too. I don't want to buy those fancy cell blinds that do it because my cat will ruin those.

The bedroom is on the second floor and faces a common backyard and I'm worried that I'll be seen running nekkid from the shower to my closet by my neighbor, Janice, and give her a heart attack - not in a good way.

Any suggestions for something cheap, easy and that will cover up the bottom half of the window? I was thinking of using some view-obscuring type of contact paper on the bottom half and doing a regular curtain but maybe there's other options.


8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cat-proof Curtains on: April 13, 2006 02:12:28 PM
I have a problem.

My cat likes to climb up my bedroom curtains about 2, 4, and 6 in the morning. I have a squirt bottle by the bedside to spray her down and she responds well to that. But I'm thinking the real solution would be to remove the temptation.

Do you know of or can you think of any cat-proof curtains or other window covering. Vertical blinds are all I can think of and they're soooo ugly and not the style of my home.  Any other ideas?

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first cross-stitch... in a really long time on: December 31, 2005 07:57:56 AM
Here are some scans of the two cross-stitch projects I just completed.  My honey gave me Bizarre Bazaar for Christmas and it inspired me to create these projects:

{above} This is for a friend's birthday. I got the idea from this board last week.

{above} For a co-worker's birthday next week.  She loves ladybugs and says this like 10 times a day.

I cross-stitched when I was a little boy.  I remember spending time with my mom doing this.  I had shame for so long... but no more!

Cross-stitch is so cheap and relatively quick - I had forgotten that. I think I'm drawn to it because I'm a child of Atari and Nintendo and these little string 'pixels' are a form of nostalgia (do you agree?)
