Help me brainstorm a witch's apothecary worth of Halloween props

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Halloween is fast approaching and I need help creating some apothecary style props from the Bard's well known witches chant based on the introduction to That Scottish Play. Most of my audience isn't going to remember much past "eye of newt and toe of frog" but being a geek about details I'd like to try to create a tableaux of the entire contents of that cauldron.

WTF logo is on this fabric?

I just bought some interesting fabric from an enormous textile discount place. See link for crappy cellphone picture. Obviously, the pattern incorporates a logo (there is a teeny registered trademark sign inside each square), but I cannot place it. Any ideas? Someday, it will be a bag or maybe a skirt and I'd like to know who or what I'm wearing. Thanks!

Metal crafts classes needed.

I want to learn metal crafts using a scribe/jeweler or marquetry saw and soldering. I live in Los Angeles (specifically Burbank) and I've tried vocational schools but can't find any specific courses, just entire certification programs in welding & such. I'm better learning when someone experienced is teaching and not from a book. I'm willing to pay for courses...just can't find any.

Help me make a hard wood poster.

With the joyous event of the election of a Rudd Labor Government here in Australia, I'm thinking of commemorating the win by taking the front page of a few newspapers and turning them into one of those hard wood posters you can buy from some music stores and poster shops. I am reliably informed that this process is called 'poster boarding' and from the few places I've looked at who do it professionally, this is going to set me back anywhere between $100 to $300 per poster. So I'm wondering if this is something I could do myself. If so, what do I need to buy, what do I need to do (a step by step process would be nice) and, importantly, how easy/hard will this be for a first-timer to do?

Halo craft ideas wanted

I would like to make some Halo (the video game) things for my husband's birthday (next week). I am thinking about a Halo-cake (any good ideas? I don't want to make a photo cake) but don't have any other ideas. I don't live in the US and cannot buy many special products here. I also don't want to spend a lot of money. It's the idea that counts. Any ideas?

Layout software or ideas for mosaic/decoupage projects?

Attention, crafty people! I do some decoupage (examples to follow) and have a new project I'm stumped on. I have several dozen Chinese birthday money envelopes that I want to arrange in some sort of interesting pattern on my kitchen table. I'm pretty stumped, so I'm trying to find out whether there's any Mac software (or a web-based app would work too) designed for helping mosaic makers make designs. Unfortunately, all I seem to be able to find is the Mosaic browser and various photo mosaic makers. Or, if there's not anything like that out there, I'm looking for ideas about how to lay it out.
