People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.

I'm fifteen and I still haven't grown out of Disney.  Grin

You can make jewelry out of monopoly pieces. I've seen some examples around here somewhere, just do a little bit of searching.

I've also seen people melt down the mardi gras beads into stuff. Again, research it, I've never really tried it out to advise you on how to do it (without burning something down...)

Are the bottles a good size to hold candles?  If so, you can paint them and decorate them by melting wax on them so they look like an Italian wine bottle/candle holder.

Okay, for the water bottles, you may want to consider actually recycling those.  If they have flat bits, there's a tutorial on here about using plastic bottles to make butterflies that is very nifty.  Also, when I was in college, one of the guys down the hall glued all his Dasani bottles together, top to bottom, and side to side, and made a "curtain" out of them (he hooked it to his window with some form of dorm-ingenuity, not sure how)...it was neat, but your parents might not appreciate it.

You could make a mobile out of the plastic eggs and gift it to a child in your life.

Dude, I'm 25 and I still haven't outgrown Disney.  I'm tellin' ya, kids today just don't appreciate the classics.   Wink

Is the book cover fabric?  I bet it'd make a cute purse, with some interfacing and lining.

Are the DVD cases for actual movies, or jewel cases?  Jewel cases come in handy a lot, eventually, so I'd just hang onto them.

Bubbles...go blow bubbles!  Have fun!

And for Mardi Gras beads, melt 'em down!  Make coasters or something else neat.  If you had a lot, I'd say to get in touch with some of the smaller krewe's, as they often recycle beads (I've got a friend in Krewe de Vieux and she hassles everybody two weeks after Mardi Gras to give her their beads).

And hey, have fun!
