Cut Up Negatives Make For Positively Awesome Christmas Ornaments at Glak Love.

Artist and Principal Designer Angelyn Pass of Atanta Georgia's Glak Love has trademarked Celluloidic Artistry™, a process in which she turns exposed film negatives into positively stunning, art, quirky holiday ornaments and jewelry.

An on-hiatus actress, she found herself cutting up old film negatives because, as she says "...I don’t know, maybe it was cathartic."  She became mesmerized by the moments captured on film and was inspired to begin making collages out of them, which resulted in several different items including these lovely and unusual handmade, Christmas ornaments.

Each ornament measures 80mm, has glitter 'snow' in the ball and a ribbon attached for hanging.

Shipping Details: Shipped via First Class mail, with shipping times varying by destination. For domestic shipping, please allow up to 1 week for delivery; For International, please allow 2 - 3 weeks for shipping. Orders over 2 ornaments are shipped via Priority Mail. Each ornament comes in its own gift box, ready to give as a present to someone special, including yourself.

No Room For An Aquarium? Think Again. 20 Unusual Places
In Your Home For Fish Tanks.

I've been obsessed with fish tanks and aquariums for quite awhile. I even record Tanked (which I highly recommend). But I never seem to have the space needed to put a saltwater or freshwater aquarium in my home. Then again, I hadn't considered all the following options.

What about turning the surround of your fireplace into a giant aquarium?

Or how about adding it to a wide doorway?

above: both fireplace and doorway aquariums by Seavisions

Build it into an existing shelving unit:

Or just putting a tank into that fireplace you never use?

That space under your stairs may just be the perfect spot:

Or replacing that wet bar with a bar/aquarium

above: Bespoke Aquarium Bar and Glass Staircase, both designed by Ali Musani

Here are a bunch of possibilities that may not have crossed your mind, in rooms you may have not considered.

The Kitchen

Building it into your backsplash is a great look:

Poggenpohl and Aquafront have teamed up to design a series of new kitchens which contain built in fish tanks or aquariums. In the backsplash or the cabinetry, the tanks can hold saltwater fish, freshwater fish or even jellyfish:

You can put an aquarium in a kitchen island, above a cooktop or into the built-in cabinetry:

Or even punctuate a cooktop with a built -in aquarium like the one below by Phil Kean:

You could always turn your kitchen table into an aquarium like this custom one created for a Fridgidaire showroom:

The Bathroom
Adding an aquarium to your bathroom is an option in either the tub surround, the shower walls, or at the edge of the tub, like the one pictured in what used to be the home of Kanye West.

The Plano Acquario Shower offers a built in aquarium wall as an option:

The Hollywood Hills bathroom of Kanye West (no longer owned by him):

And of course, Moody makes both a sink and a bathtub with built in aquariums:

The Moody Acquario tub:

There's even a toilet that houses fish, if you must.
The Aquariass by Oliver Beckert or the Fish n' Flush from AquaOne:

The Bedroom
How about an aquarium headboard?

or in a bedroom fireplace:

And lastly, the TV Tank from Picturehouse hides your screen within a fishtank:
