The School Saga Continues...

Today Robert went to a class that I needed to go to (I want to add it and drop the one I'm in since it's a much better time). I should have known better, really, but we were busy and I was nervous and he offered to sit in the back and then get the teacher to add me.

Yeah, right, like that's how it worked out. First off Robert was late to the class (his got out late) then the Professor asked him who he was and he had to explain in front of everyone that he was there for me. Which the Professor said she'd never seen before (so I'm going to be remembered).

Second, they all had to stand and tell about themselves, to which Robert was told to tell about me. UGH! It gets worse. He told them where I grew up, what my name was and that I'd written a book that wasn't published yet. Which totally piqued her interest. I can't believe he did that! I'm so shy about that I hardly mention it to people and he's always bringing it up. (I know... I just mentioned it on a blog... so not the same).

Then she gave the class an assignment and told Robert to just have me bring the add/drop slip to class with me on Friday. Now I'm going to have to walk up to this woman and say 'Hi, I'm the total idiot who had my husband come to class for me, will you sign this and allow me to come up with some huge grand excuse for why I wasn't here instead of just saying I'm a big yellow belly.'

What was I thinking guys!? It would have been much easier on me if I'd just gone for myself. But it was a class I wasn't even registered for and... no excuses, no excuses.

I haven't died yet, anyone willing to offer up their services?

At least the teacher is going to add you. It could have been worse and she could have decided that since you didn't show up she wouldn't add you. Plus, it sounds like she is already interested in you and that can help out in the grading. Talk about making an enterance, so to speak.

Wow! Robert loves you. What a great husband. I wonder if John would do that for me?

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…
