1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Online "Window" Shopping...? on: August 13, 2010 11:03:27 PM
Since my cash flow is pretty much zip right now, but I just bought my first house and I have a terrible compulsion to decorate it, I've taken to satisfying my craving by "online window shopping." I save pictures and create custom mood boards ala like the ones found on http://www.flickr.com/photos/younghouselove/sets/72157608290321631/

So far these are my favorite shopping sites, can anyone suggest more?
Zgallerie, West Elm, CB2, Ikea, Target, Urban Outfitters, World Market, Urban Outfitters, Shades of Light, Anthropology, and everyonce and awhile Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / looking for modern wallpaper on: September 10, 2009 01:09:20 PM
I'm looking for modern wallpaper like the ones that have been featured in DIY, Ty Pennington At Home and Decorating magazines. I've gone to the websites/manufacturers suggested by the magazines but they are so different by what is in the magazines...

What are your favorite wallpaper companies? (No old lady wallpapers please!)
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Painting Toilet Seats... What Kind of Sealer? on: February 10, 2008 12:43:36 PM
Hi... my boyfriend and I are decorating his apartment and we're going to be making a classic horror movie bathroom. We were wanting to paint the toilet sets with acrylic paint (would this work, you think?) and then seal it with something so it wouldn't chip or come off on us.

Does anyone know what kind of paint would work best or what kind of sealer provide the best protection?

BTW, these are brand new toilet seats, we're not painting on the ones that came with the apartment. Smiley

Thanks for any help!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Alternatives to Pullip Dolls? on: December 09, 2007 01:11:16 AM
Okay... so I'm not quite sure how I suddenly became obsessed with them, but  now I am.

I want to make them a dollhouse/apartment complex. I want to decorate their rooms, and make their clothes and style their hair and take all kinds of pretty pictures. Heck, I busted out my sewing machine for the first time in over a year to practice making clothes for these dolls and I don't even have one!

But once I started checking out prices, I nearly spit my soda out! Buying one would be like 1/2 a months rent. I can't afford that. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what other dolls would be a good alternative and better on my pocketbook, lol? 


5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Some New Favorite Pages on: August 28, 2007 08:45:27 PM
I was in a scrappin' whirlwind this weekend! I made so many new pages. I thought I'd share a couple of my new favorites.

This was inspired by a challenge at scrapbook.com. It was scrapbook life's imperfections, and this month's challenge was to be about yourself. I really like the way the layout turned out. The circles kinda remind me of eyes.

The picture wasn't the greatest, but I can tell by the way my bf's lips are curled what he's thinking. I did rotate the picture because it fit the design better. The color scheme was actually inspired by some chipboard by KI Memories. It was too expensive for me to get the other day (I'm broke) but I really liked it so I attempted to recreate the feel of it.

My favorite color! This was another challenge at scrapbook.com. I LOVE the way this layout turned out!

Trying out the clean and simple graphic style. I don't know that I quite pulled it off.

When I found this fabric iron-on on clearance at Walmart for only a buck, I knew that I had to put it on a layout! This picture of my sister seemed to just complement it perfectly. I'm really digging this page.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Completed Boyfriend Book (Several IMGs) on: July 12, 2007 10:52:36 AM
Okay, I've made a couple of albums for my boyfriend before. One was really mushy and I made it when I moved to a different city. Another one was all about his favorite sports team for that paticular season (to make up for the overly mushy scrapbook before).

This one is different. Its simple, for one thing. And its short. And I created the whole album. I used chipboard for the covers and as the background for the pages. I'm super proud of this album. Its my most favorite thing I've EVER done. If anyone is interested in how I made the album, let me know. I'll see if I can't come up with a tutorial.

Cover of the album. Title is also the theme.

This is the title page. Tried to kinda make it look like jr high girls notebooks - kwim? I hope that came across. Anyway, each song and artist in the album are represented here.

Song: Something
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: If this was meant to be...Don't condemn me to be free...And even if we never marry...I will always love you baby, childishly

Song: Something
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: I love the temperature and smell of your body... the shape of your lips and the size of your nose... I love that everything you say is so funny... Plus you're the best kisser that I've ever known... You see the way I am, without makeup without clotehes... And you accept me like nobody... And I will always love you baby... With eyes closed

Song: Underneath Your Clothes
Artist: Shakira
Lyrics: You're a song.... written by the hands of God... Don't get me wrong... This might sound to you a bit odd... But you own the place where... all my thoughts go hiding... Right under your clothes is... Where I'll find them

Song: Always You
Artist: Jennifer Paige
Lyrics: I wake up in this dream tonight... That's when I see the truth... Of all the faces in my heart... There's only one I choose... Always you

Song: When You Say Nothing At All
Artist: Alison Krauss
Lyrics: (Really really long. I used almost the whole song for this. So here's just the chorus)  The smile on your face lets me know that you need me... There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me... A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall... You say it best, when you say nothing at all

Song: We Belong Together
Artist: Mariah Carey
Lyrics: Who else am I going to lean on when times get tough... Who's going to talk to me on the phone til the sun comes up.... Who's going to take your place... There ain't nobody better... Oh baby baby... We belong together

Song: Crazy in Love
Artist: Beyonce
Lyrics: You got me lookin so crazy, my baby... I'm not myself, lately... I'm foolish, I don't do this... I've been playin myself... Baby I don't care... But your love's got the best me... Baby you're makin' a fool of me... You got me sprung... And I don't care who sees... You got me lookin so crazy

Song: Loving Me For Me
Artist: Christina Aguilera
Lyrics: Your lips, you love, your smile, your kiss... I must admit is a part of me... Completes me, believe me, play me like a melody... Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth... Has sent me proof that we were meant to be... But your best quality that's hooking me... Is that you're loving me for me

And the last page really just is the whole song of Music of My Heart. The song was performed by Gloria Estefan and *NSYNC.

PS: I know alot of you are probably groaning at my choice of music. But *shrug* I like pop. Ryan doesn't. But there was no way I could make an album about how much I love him when his music tastes are Cannibal Corpse and Vital Remains and Cattle Decapitation. Those lyrics just don't quite give off the lovey-vibe, kwim?
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Couple of New Pages on: June 20, 2007 06:12:31 PM
I've kinda been in a whirlwind of scrappin' lately. I don't know why... maybe its 'cuz I'm working parttime instead of full time now... HrMmm.... Anyway here's some of my latest (tho, I'm not sure they could be called the greatest!)

Helpful criticism is always appreciated.

This is the first of a two page layout. Its just a day when my friends and I all decided to hang out.

Page two. Sorry 'bout Miguel. He never takes a "nice" picture. LoL.

This is a page I made for my mom. She hardly ever gets out of the house to be with her friends. My mom wasn't sure who some of the other women were so I thought I creatively covered them up... whaddya think?

My grandparents in the summer of 1946. I ADORE this picture of them. They look so in love. But since it was an older picture I didn't feel like doing a "heritage" sorta feel. They were young then too, afterall!
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Kitschy Not Cutesy Scrapbooking on: January 18, 2007 08:35:29 PM
I read in another thread that other people wished that more alternative scrapbooking supplies were mass marketed. I was just wondering, what sort of things would people be interested in?

Like if you could have rubons and stickers and paper and whatever else produced, what themes, patterns, sayings, etc would you want?
