This page is a digital scrapbook of sorts, a dumping ground for design and decoration ideas.

Thanks to Ty Thornock for the basics of basket weave
"Okay, basket weave in 3 easy steps 
smile emoticon. Draw your grid as in 1 on your spoon. I have shaded in 3 squares to make a rectangle. This rectangle is your unit. I only cut the long sides of the rectangle. In 2 you see I have 3 units. Each unit buts into the middle square of the next unit.. 3 shows how it starts to look as it all comes together."
