Tuesday Tell All- Top Five Celebs

List your top five favorite celebrities and why you like them. It can be someone from the past, present, or anywhere in between. Have fun!


Eww, this ones a tough one because I really don't get to interested in celebrities. I can really get into the characters they play but once you learn a little about the person you don't like them so much. But I suppose celebrity can be anyone famous and not limited to actors.

In no particular order:

1. Andrean Sudbury
Why?
I first heard of this man when I was in England and I began to read his blog. I think he had an affect on me because he was my age, even a little younger when the cancer hit him. He really used his last days to do good in the world. He faced death straight in the eyes and walked towards it. I can't imagine how terrifying that would be, but he seemed to handle it well and I really grieved when he died, even though I didn't know him. I still grieve I suppose. He was a very brave man.

2. Abigail Adams
Why?
Because I can relate to her, surprisingly enough, and I know that she dealt with a lot to support her husband. She loved him dearly and was able to allow him the freedom he needed to be the great man that he was. She didn't hinder him, she lifted him, and sacrificed to do so.

3. Martin Luther King Jr.
Why?
I recently read a book of his speeches, it was moving, it was enlightening. This was a man who knew what the cost might be and chose to follow what he believed in anyway. While he lived he moved mountains. You should read his works they are incredible. A martyr is "a person who is put to death or endures great suffering on behalf of any belief, principle, or cause". MLK fit this criteria.

4. Viggo Mortensen
Why?
*blush* Because I think Aragorn is about the hottest character in any book and Viggo does a great job putting him to life.

5. Robert Jordan
Why?
Because he wrote good books and introduced me to the world of Fantasy.



Well, that's my quick list. Maybe tomorrow I'll think 'Golly, I should have said ______' but today that's what I've got.

Carey Grant (top of my favorite actor list)
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (I like them both but they're best together)
Katherine Hepburn (not all of her movies but many)
Charity, your list is better than mine.
It's hard to find celebs that i admire. I guess i'm a tough critic. I can say that i like these actors but i mean i just like their acting. As you say when you really find out about them.....
I don't know why Spencer Tracy's wife didn't just divorce him. What a blatant disregard they both had for her. Can you imagine being called by your husbands mistress to tell you that he is dead? I don't know, maybe she had someone else she spent time with too.

Ah, we both had Abigail Adams. Seems great minds think alike.

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…
