Focus. Focus. Focus!

Okay, I know that you know that I'm a internet junky, but really this is bad. I can't even remember to post my assignments to the designated assignment posting place because I'm to busy wandering around Blog World.

Whose idea was it to talk me into blogging!? Lisa, I'm blaming this on you. Today you can be my scapegoat, and then we'll hand it off to Ivy tomorrow since she took the time to make a user name just to post comments. That's pressure people!

Now November is gonna roll around and I'm gonna have to keep up a writing class, a journal, a blog and- AND- write a 50,000 word novel. Do you see the problems you create for me? From now on I'm going to, in no particular order, blame you, my faithful readers, for any slacking that might be occurring in my life.

I actually got a lecture from my 6 year old daughter today about not doing homework. But it's not my problem, I'm being forced into this all, I can attest to that!

I'm as innocent as the day I was born. *bats eyelashes, throws in the innocent eyes just in case*

Well, hah!! Because for me, it is YOUR fault. All YOURS. Yours, yours, yours. Neener neener.

I think it's funny that Boston lectured you. Who told her you were late on your homework?

I agree with Jennifer. I never looked at the blogging world till you started one. Hah!

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…
