Please Confirm Your Registration

I'm starting school tomorrow, just one class but boy am I terrified! I feel like a 5 year old on their first day of kindergarten, except with a heck of a lot more knowledge of how embarrasing school can be. I can't even think about it for more than a few minutes at a time before my heart starts racing and my breathing grows rapid. I near full blown panic attack before five minutes has passed and have to force myself to think of other things.

Tomorrow at 8 AM. Holy freaking cow what am I thinking?! I'm nuts! Who am I going to talk to? They're all a bunch of freshman, like 19 year olds!

And I'm supposed to buy a book, but I haven't even gone to the bookstore. And I'm supposed to confirm my registration online but I can't get into the stupid website, every time I try it crashes and freezes up and I get so frustrated I want to scream. That means I'll have to go down to the school and actually talk to someone.

I know you all think I'm this talkative outgoing free spirit but I'm telling you now, that's cause you all know me in my comfort zones. If I'm out of my little bubble of security I'm the biggest, shyest wimp in the world. I don't think I'll sleep tonight... I wonder what I'm gonna wear?

Oi! I think I'm gonna be sick.

I love when people go back to school. I've been thinking of it too. It's just so hard to take the first step. Good for you! It'll all work out and then you'll be in your comfort zone soon.

I'm surprised that it has taken you this long to go back. You, Ammon, and John are three people who love to learn and surprise me with their lack of enthusiam for school. Good for you and you are going to love it. By the way, I never bought my books until after the first day. That way, I know if their is extra stuff or more importantly, if I even really need the book. To often have I bought books and never opened them. What class are you taking? I am very excited for you.

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…
