Food! Glorious Food!

I've been making this list in my head lately it's the kind of list that one makes when they are obsessing over something. Sometimes I wonder if I'm like a wanderer lost in the desert hallucinating about water except for me it's food.

So my list (I like lists have you ever noticed).

Food that I miss:

Bacci Chocolates from Italy (I ate these 10 years ago)

Minestrone Soup from Riazzi's in Tempe, Arizona

Tamales with beans and rice from the Mexican restaurant in Livingston, Montana (we could never remember the name of that place)

Burrito's from that little Mexican restaurant in Ogden, Utah that me and my friends would go to... the one across the street from the dog food factory that was about the best kept secret in the whole city.

Panini's from that little shop in Stratford-upon-Avon

Fish and Chips from the tinier shop in Braemar, Scotland

Ravioli's from The Pasta Factory in St. George, Utah

Italian Sausage and Green Pepper Pizza from Pier 49 (sourdough pizza) in Pocatello, Idaho


A beef and sprout scone sandwich from Sconecutter's in St. George, UT

*sigh* I miss food. When I'm done being sick I'm going to go to Pizza Hut and order a Meat Lover's with green peppers and I'm going to eat at least 3 pieces. Then I'm going to buy the biggest Coke that they have and I'm going to drain the cup and ask for more. When that's done I'm going to go over to the local Mexican Restaurant and order myself 2 beef Tamales with beans and rice. Then and only then will I be content.

We do the same thing, we find great food in the places we travel to and then forever associate the place with the food. Good times. I once had excellent fish n chips in Spalding, England...mmmmmmm

PS I like the new color scheme

I really enjoyed fish and chips I think everyone on the trip thought I was odd but I kept thinking, "I'd never find fish this cheap where I live!"

And of course when I went home I ordered something as near to fish and chips as I could get and it didn't do the job.

You're making me hungry!! We have found places that we like to eat too - and then we move after a couple of years and have to leave it behind :0)

Spoken like a true prego! When I have the barfs and feel hungry and nauseated at the same time, I just DREAM of food!

We go a little crazy on our AZ trips, too--our family wants to cook for us and we want to go our to eat for every meal to get what we can't ahve in MT!

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.

What do you think?

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…
