LMPG - you should be taking pics of your reno projects as you go and then doing a scrapbook on that. Before and after is always neat to look at.
AG - You can make little ribbons out of some of the yarn I sent you. The foam can be cut into any shape instead of going and buying more. The internet is a great place to download patterns for things you can cut out and use. You can use some of the seed beads to sprinkle around the pages. Even some of the beading wire/fishing line can be used in creative ways. Just trying to save you some dough.
