Ordinary to Extraordinary

Have you ever thought that if only you had more money, you could afford to be more creative? So have I. I watch HGTV and drool over the textiles and the table displays too. I was so encouraged this morning when I came across this video by some of the Athropologie display designers. They say that small budgets actually challenge you to create something extraordinary using ordinary, everyday supplies, most of which you could find lying around the house. Look at some of these designs using book pages.
