Redecorate Your Bedroom

Looking to give yourself and your space a new look this winter? Why don't you turn your bedroom into an inspired space that you can mix and match with a million different combinations?

Dress Up Your Monitor

Unless you're a member of the Simpson family, you don't wear just one outfit so, why should your computer or TV? This quick project really lets you flex your creative muscles.
You need: A roll of peel-and-stick Velcro, different colors of felt, scissors, a measuring tape and glue.
Do it: Measure your TV or Computer screen. Then cut out a felt border that will fit around the outside edge without blocking the screen. Use your own imagination to cut out different shapes and patterns. Glue the felt cutouts to the border and decorate it any other way you want. You can make lots of different ones to suit your moods. Now stick one side of the Velcro to the TV or computer monitor (better ask your 'rents first.) Stick the other side to the pretty frame you made. Be careful to use the opposite sides of the Velcro strips cuz two pieces of the same side won't stick together. Now you can change the frames whenever you feel like it.

On the Wall Variation

You don't have to limit this crafty idea to your TV. Glue pics of your friends on to felt frames that you've decorated and stick them to your wall with Velcro so you can move them around to give your room a fresh look. Or, if you're really artistically inclined, you can paint a fishpond on your wall and stick cutouts of different fish, plants and frogs to the pond.

Sleep Under the Stars

So your 'rents aren't keen on you painting your ceiling? No prob. Buy plastic glow-in-the-dark stars and stick them to your ceiling with poster putty. If you've got some serious time on your hands, you can find a map of the stars on the Web and copy the constellations. You can switch the stars around whenever you want - poster putty stays soft so it won't wreck your ceiling!

"I'm sorry!" He screamed. He could apologize all he wanted. It still didn't change the hurt in my heart. I couldn't even look at him. My face was blank but my emotions were still there. It was all there. I think he knew.  "Kathryn look at me. Kathryn!" He shook me like i was a dead body. "Stop it! Stop it! That hurts!" The tears finally came slowly. His expression changed from anger to realization of how much he really hurt me. "Kathryn. Please...what are you thinking." I pause. What was i thinking? Was i thinking that he betrayed me? After all i sacrificed he lied?  "I'm thinking your father was right. I should have never trust you." He blinked. "What..." It must have hurt. What i said. Him and his father haven't spoken for years. He begged for approval from him. It all seemed so sad now. I didn't want to deal with this. I felt tired, but i always felt tired. But this was different. The kind of tired that drags at your body, your lungs, your every movement. I had to sit down. I took my oxygen mask and breathed in from it. "Drake..." I whispered. He dropped on his knees and looked at me. "Remember that time. When i...i gave you all my power, just to give you your life back." I remembered that day. My bod was flame. I am flame. It is my power. I man had been trying to kill me ever since i was a little kid. I thought he killed my parents, but i finally found out who really did it, me. I blew up. Exploded. Fire everywhere. I was only five. The man had come while me and Drake were talking. He put something in me. Poison? Drake had panicked, but then he gave me all his power. He had dark, dark, power. In fact, we were destined to be against each other. No one expected us to fall in love. I gave it all back to him and he turned fine. "I'm surprised you remember. Yea, i do." I looked at him sadly and put my forehead against his "I'm gonna die Drake. It's because what i gave to you. Your life. A life for a life." He froze, shocked. Tears fell from my eyes and they were filled with fire. "And my last memory will be of you cheating on me!" I stood not even realizing that was a bad move. I fell but Drake caught me. He cried. Hard. I looked at him and said "Sorry's just a word Drake. So is love. But it depends on who's saying it. And if it's real. For you. It wasn't. Not for anybody. But i will say it anyway. I hate you Drake. But i love you too."
