It's Official... I'm An Idiot

I am horrified! Mortified! It was so embarrassing. I got up to go to school today, I did my hair, I put on nice clothes (second choice outfit since first choice was dirty). I ate my breakfast at lightning speed. I even managed to leave my husband with the crying kids and a only few shouts of 'don't forget this' and 'be sure they wear their coats.'

I walked to school, nervous and a bit cold (it's been raining today) and I got to my class and it was all dark. Crap, I thought, they've moved the class and I don't know where to. I called Robert on the phone but he didn't answer as he was, I'm sure, wrestling children into the car. So I was brave and went over to the Advisory Office to ask them if they knew. And that's when it happened. The horriblest, worst nightmare, besides falling on my face or forgetting to wear pants.

School starts tomorrow.

I didn't know! None of my friends who are students knew (okay, well maybe that's cause they are all Law Students and have been in classes for a month now). I wish I could crawl under a rock for a few days and hide. Instead I have to comfort myself with knowledge that I probably won't see those people enough for them to remember who I am by next week.

*sigh* So I have yet to get over my nerves and have to go through another sleepless night before I can overcome this little bump.

Maybe I'll die before then and won't have to worry about it.

UGH!!! That is the worst! (Not the people who saw you, I’m sure you’re not the first to do that!) But the waiting AGAIN with anther night of anxiety!! UGH! I feel for you.

How hard did Robert laugh when you got home?

What a great story. Wait till Boston is worried about starting high school and you can say, "oh honey, everything will be ok. It can't be as bad as what i did." And of course then you share this story and laugh.

ya know, I blame the school for this one. Like who has ever heard of not having class on the first day of school, unless your class starts at 4pm or later? It's crazy and totally freaked me out my first semester

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…
