Tagged. (I love being tagged)

Here's the rules if you feel like playing along:
  1. Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.
Okay so here's my list:

1. I have a terrible habit of shouting "In the name of everything Holy!' when I'm mad at a car in the road. I imagine this isn't the best phrase to be using as it pretty much covers all the bases of damnation. I'm working on it.

2. When I was a kid my friends and I used to shoplift... frequently. (this is something I feel pretty bad about now)

3. I have two manuscripts in their second drafts and about 5 others in their first drafts. No luck on publication yet though.

4. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, more commonly known as Mormon's (but that's not our name).

5. I try to hide my clothing addiction from my husband. When I buy something I will take the tags off and bury the bag. It never works, he always notices when I've bought something new.

6. When I was a child my family spent our summers in Portland, Oregon and along the coast. My parents both grew up there and we would go visit my mom's mom. I loved it and hold a very soft place in my heart for that part of the West Coast.

7. When I like a song I'll listen to it over and over and over again until I get sick of it.

8. I am jealous of people who can speak more than one language.

my sister has this link on her blog.
i thought it was clever.
This lady sews and apparently paints too and her things are sooo cute. If people put her link on their blog she puts their name in a pool to win one of her creations every month.
You sew, in all your spare time, you could do it too. lol

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…
