As you may know...

I'm moving to another state this week, with new laws to learn and new tax codes to decipher. I'm going to be in and out for a bit (if you haven't already noticed) because we have very little time on our hands and very little that isn't packed or covered in boxes. Okay, maybe the new Stephenie Meyer book is to blame as well.

Anyhow, since this month's topic is poetry and I had the distinct pleasure of driving four hours over the weekend (thereby listening to a lot of music) I have a new poem/song that I wanted to share. This is one of my all time favorite songs, if you've seen Joe Vs. the Volcano, you've heard it. My favorite line is:

If you see me comin' better step aside
A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died
With one fist of iron and the other of steel
If the right one don't get ya, the left one will

It's a great song. But don't take my word for it listen for yourself...

Sorry guys, that's the best I can do... a link, I tried to figure out how to add a player to the blog itself but I can't. If someone wants to tell me how it works. Go ahead!

Have a good day.

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.

I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
