What is the latest thing that you've altered? For me, it's a switch plate. I'm *almost* finished it, but I keep staying on the computer.

It's the thing that covers the on/off switch in the room? I did one up for my room. Haven't got it quite done yet. I ended up spending way too much time on the boards last night, and no time scrapping. :rolleyes:

Be sure to post it when you're done.... I couldn't begin to figure out this one, but now that you tell me .... I have seen "stuff" in design stores to pretty these up so it does make logical sense. you could match any decor! Great idea!

I found a Shrek printable for a switchplate and printed it on sticker paper for my sons room. I never thought about doing anything of my own on a switchplate though. I can't wait to see how it looks and to see what all you use to do this with. Please do be sure to post it so we can all see it when it's finished.

The last thing I altered was some wood out of a woodburning kit. I didn't actually burn any of it, lol, I ended up drawing roses with colored pencils on a tree piece of wood, and I used what came in thekit to make a little box to make somewhat a photo wall hanging with my childrens photos on it. I have pics somewhere on here of both the wall hanging of pics as well as the roses on the tree wood, so I am going to find those and post them here for everyone else to see. Maybe it'll be an inspiration to someone else, who knows. ;)

Well, I unfortunately missed all three classes, thanks to my dsl being down today. I kind of talked my DH into ordering dialup for me just so I could try to make it even, but it was already too late by the time I got it set up the right way so it wouldn't mess up my dsl modems settings. I love the idea though for sure.

A class would be good. I have all the "stuff," but I just haven't been real successful with altering much of anything.

The last thing I altered was a CD. I am really into these right now. I think altered CDs would make a great class.

Talking about switchplates ... I saw an article (for the life of me, cannot think of the name) for creating altered books/frames. They used a switchplate as two small frames for pictures!! It was really cute!

As for me? I don't know where this idea popped out of ... been very very uncreative the past week ... I grabbed a paperbag book, masking tape, red acrylic paint and hub's black shoe polish brush. Here's a pic of the front :) "This is only the beginning ... "(Chicago)

Shai, any chance I can have your permission to save your thumbnail pic to my hard drive? It would make an interesting background for a scrapbook page. It sure looks cool.

I love that look. The bright bright red and the way you used tape all over it, that was definately something I've never seen before, sooo you are just way creative. :)

Funny. I have had very long hair twice in my life. The last time before I cut it some, my son measured from the crown to the bottom. He came up with 33 inches. I really miss it sometimes, but when I would put Selena in her carseat, it would always get in her face. Plus, I was pulling it up in a tail most of the time, anyway. I think I might let it go again. I just don't feel right in short hair. I bet your Mom's hair was beautiful, too. My E.J. liked my hair longer, too. :)

Oh, man, I bet she used alot of creme rinse! I'd miss that, too. It was nice visiting with you tonight. I'm going to try to work on a page for awhile, and then I really need to get to bed. Bummer! Take care! Night.
