Here's a Funny

I spotted this in the "Help Wanted" section of my local penny saver. Now remember that the town I live in has about 10k people and I've lived in cities of 3+million and haven't ever come across something this... interesting.

"BODYGUARDS-COUNTER ASSAULT TEAMS!
Needed/USA & Overseas
$119-$220K year. Bodyguards $250-$750/day;
18 older... call today
www.InternationalExecutives.net"
Hmm, think I should sign up guys? I'm sure I'm exactly what they're looking for. Lol. It's an odd little tidbit that I don't think I've seen the likes of before.

Another thing I spotted in the phone book the other day was this:

Outdoor Sporting
*New or used bows
*Custom arrows
*Interactive targets
Interactive targets? Does that mean they shoot back? No wonder they have used bows to sell.

Does it seem like I have to much time on my hands?

There is a very high population of Iraq vets in this area, that's why the ad is here. My former bro-in-law is retiring from the Army next month with his 20 years and has already signed up to do another year in Iraq as a civilian getting paid $200k for the year! Heck of a lot more than the Army was paying! But he's already been to Iraq about 5 times (as well as Germany, Korea and Honduras).

Enjoy that free time though! It'll be over soon...

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. 
Stop.
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.
