Restoring and preserving a paper art project- How do I do this?

When I was a kid, my grandfather and I spent a lot of time working on a personalized monopoly type game. We made it out of cardboard, construction paper, elmer's glue, paint, and pen ink. It also is covered with stickers. Unfortunately, it is yellowing/faded/coming undone/moldy(?) and kinda gross. Who can I contact to have this fixed? [more inside]

apparently I am not the only person who likes tiny furniture.

So, I'm running a fairy garden craft workshop in the store I work at in April. I've done this activity before when I worked at an after-school program, so I pretty much know what I'm doing with the actual crafting. However, interest in the workshop has been high enough that I would like to try running private workshops for people, and already have two people interested in hiring me for this. How do I figure out what to charge them, what do I offer to provide, and how do I find more clients if I want to make any actual money? [more inside]

I need to buy more of the jewelry things!

I'm getting a start making jewelry and am looking for suppliers for inexpensive beads and pendants. Most of what I've been using has been cheap stuff from Fire Mountain and I've been really happy with the stuff I've gotten for them in the 75 cents to 2 dollar range but am looking for more variety. I'm more interested in pendants and other focals than beads, but I'm addicted enough to the bead part that I'll look at sites that focus on those too :) [more inside]

What is the difference between card stock and construction paper?

What is the difference between card stock and construction paper? Any web searches reveal that they're of similar weight/size and are used in standard art projects, but being from non-US, they're not specific enough for me to understand what it is. Where I live, it's all "cardboard" to us =\ . [more inside]
