The Assignment Is...

Today in class my teacher had quite the list for us:

1) Create a sentence level corrections log for the first two essays you've done. After reading through my corrections, find more of the same in your work; then write the types of errors, the original sentences (with error) and the corrected sentences out on a seperate form from the now corrected essays. Due date: 9/29

2) Finish second draft of personal essay and upload to website. Following the book guidelines write three questions for your peer's to answer on how to improve your essay. Don't ask one sided questions (avoid yes and no questions), and don't ask about grammar and punctuation. Due date: 9/22

3) Peer Review 4 essays, follow worksheet provided (about 10 questions) be sure to be detailed in your responses. This does count towards your grade. Due date: 9/24

4) After reading the reviews for the second draft of your essay write a short essay about said reviews. Due date: 9/26

5) Write third draft of personal essay. Due date: 9/29

Because of the work load, we will not be having class on Wednesday the 24th. Be sure to have everything prepared for Friday's class, though.

Ugh. I love to write, but did I mention this was a Freshman level class. I really feel for the kids who are taking a full load. Anyway, get ready cause by next week I'll have a very thoroughly edited essay for you guys to read. Until then, I'm off to exercise those finger muscles.

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.

Car-Seat Cover Tutorial

Choose your fabric. It's fine to buy something a little cheaper for the back, since no one is going to see it. In fact I got both of these fabric pieces in the clearance section at Wal-Mart. You will also need, matching thread, batting for the middle, and binding for the edges. And alot of pins.

Take your old car seat cover and lay it flat on the paper you've chosen to use. You will have several sections you need to trace: A top, a bottom, and any sides or overhanging areas.

Now draw around the first section of the layed out car seat.. Generally speaking you can assume that the binding is hiding your seam so you don't need to make an allowance for it, but be aware that the issue might arise.

Be sure to mark any parts that lie on the inside of the pattern, like strap holes and any extra stitching.

Your patterns will start looking something like this.

When you cut out your pattern sections, remember to write what each line is for, and cut any holes so you can m…
