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!

To get the ball rolling, I ate a fern this morning. It wasn't entirely unpalatable, just a little bitter near the end. The aftertaste lingered for a long time though. Your turn.

"AlphaT" wrote: Love. What is it? If we don't know what it is, can we know what it isn't? What does it mean to say that Love is Love? What does it mean for love to "have" something?  The last two questions are what I want to look into in particular. See, many slogans and catchphrases have become progressive icons in the past few years. Examples:  "Love is Love" "Love has no gender"  "Love has no color" and, yes... "Love has no age"  Now, what does it mean to say that Love is Love? In fancy terms, it's a tautology. This just means that the statement affirms that something is itself. "One is equal to one" would be the saying the exact same thing. So, why is this statement often used to support gay marriage? How is "Love is Love" a reason for homosexual people to be wed?  Also, what does it mean to say that Love does not have a gender, or a color? Does love have something else instead of a gender or color? How can love possess a thing? Quoting Chesterton, "Love means loving the unlovable – or it is no virtue at all." Before I even try to answer your question, can you specify whether you're talking about the release of chemicals in our brains that are responsible for the phenomenon of romantic attraction--love--or the desire to do good to one's neighbor sort of love, or something else?
