Tag part 3

This is like a double tag I saw it on a blog and liked the idea so I thought I'd use it for my third (of sixteen) bits about my life for my dear niece--and anyone else whose interested, as I know you all are.

Okay so the tag I read was that you had to post your fourth picture from the fourth folder in your pictures file and explain... this isn't so cut and dry for me since I have many folders, sub-folder's, and random pictures floating around in my picture containment. See:
But if I organize them by date taken I get some more semblence of order and find that this is my 4th of 4:

This is Regent's Park in London. I went to London with my mother in April of '08. On our first day there she wanted to rest and I wanted to wander so I left our hotel took a couple of turns and promptly (and delightfully) got myself lost. That's how I found this park.... which is a very large area that you can't really miss and is nothing like our parks in the US and I enjoyed it very much. By the time I did find where I was and where the hotel was in comparison (I did have a map) my feet were absolutely throbbing but I enjoyed my little private exploration.

Other pictures from those first few days: Regents Park again. (above)

And this is the Jewel Tower in front of Parliament (how do you spell that?). I rather enjoyed those first days.

How interesting. Of course I wonder what is in the ninth picture in the ninth file here at Robot Nine. Alan

Turns out there are only three but the 4 of 4 is a giant shark in a glass block, some art from that artist that sold the diamond studded skull for like 100 zillion bucks. Alan

I don't have a ninth picture in my ninth file. It only has 5 pics in it. 3 of which I keep meaning to delete, maybe I should just rearrange the folder and get rid of it all together. hmm.

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…
