    I thought we might throw out some ideas on things to alter, these can be things you've done, things you've seen or just things you thought might be cool. I have always been a saver of "stuff" but lately my creativity seems to be in a slump! Did everyone check out Misty's apple juice popcorn container? I love that, but would love some additonal ideas on juice containers (since they are kind of stacking up now) lol

    tin cans
    ceramic tiles
    beer coasters (honestly I saw this lol)
    Scrabble Tiles (made into charms!!)
    Rolodex
    clipboards
    Picture frames
    CDs
    calendars
    checkbook
    comp books
    candles
    clocks
    notebooks
    dominoes
    Starbucks Frap bottles
    cigar boxes
    binder

    flip flops into an album
    ballet slipper into an album

    This isn't one for the list... but I'm redoing my bedroom. I'm taking a old love seat and doing away with one arm and reshaping the back to curve toward the end (armless one) Than recovering it in white damask for a lounge chair.

    Here's a hint... damask by the yard was $25.00. I got damask table cloths at the dollar store and it was only $8.00 for 3 yards.

    Clarinda, I'm a seamstress so that totally is up my alley. Please post some pics on the altered section!! What a great idea for a fabric saving tip. However I won't need fabric until I'm 200 (I'll post a pic once it's all up on my new hanging fabric wall(s) lol)

    I saw an altered rolodex on a website somewhere. I hate the way my rolodex looks so I totally plan to alter it... one of these days.

    See I totally forgot about that! I've even seen them sell on e-bay Barb! I added it to the list.

    I'm surfing and I just found a site where someone made charms out of scrabble tiles easily! Sanded tile all over, painted, glued scrapbook paper on top, drilled hole, two coats of varnish, then lobster clasp on jump ring through hole.
