November Topic

As it is the month for NaNoWriMo--and I'm afraid I'll be slacking on my blogging for those coveted 50,000 words--I've decided that I'm going to do something a little different. I'll have to admit I'm kind of stealing this idea from a blog I love--abiqutie--but assure you that she's much better than I am.

So anyway, I'm going to do pictures this month. I'm just sure I'll be popping my comments and thoughts in whenever I have a spare minute but I'm also going to be typing at least 1,642 words a day on top of my English Composition class (and work, and babies, and Thanksgiving) so I was hoping photos would take the edge off a little.

Enjoy the change of pace and wish me luck on my month of novel writing!

Don't blame you for posting more pictures this month while doing NaNo. I'm going to be hard pressed to get out regular blogs this month, but I've got a little extra time saved up here and there. Looking forward to your pictures.

good luck on the novel! What little of your writing that I've read on your blog has already shown what a gift you have for writing! You are a really great writer.

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.

Mutterings of a Middle-Aged Dreamer

Use your words, my dear sweet soul, they are inside of you... So find them. Write, you silly girl, write so hard the world will never forget you.
But does it matter if the world remembers you? 
Age begins to press its hands upon your chest and the need to be remembered seems to increase with the pressure. 
That's not a line of thought you're interested in pursuing. 
Live in the now.
Does it matter if the world remembers you if your neighbor is going hungry? 
Perhaps age is merely pushing you out the door. 
Go. Live in the now.
