What Number am I on?

Okay lets say this is my last 'Me, Myself and I' post and be happy with it. I've completely lost count of what number I'm on. So I'll start with 11 and go to 16.... enjoy!

11. My background on my computer is currently this picture. Not entirely sure where I got it but props to whomever took it because I love, love, love it. I also haven't sold it or anything so don't be a-feared.

12. I'm growing my hair out because I can't afford to get it cut (budget crunches and all) and I'm really surprised at how long it's gotten when I'm not paying attention to it.

13. I love to sleep. My mom says that when the scriptures speak of finding rest after you die she sure hopes that means we'll be able to catch up on our sleep... I agree.

*yucky picture coming brace yourself*

14. I have keloids on my back.... This is what I mean by scars that itch (in my profile). They itch constantly without reprieve and there is no cure for them because they are basically overactive scar tissue--which means you can't just cut them off because they grow back worse.

15. Because of#14 I make my own swimsuit tops that have sleeves... I'm still working on perfecting this art (I have a long way to go).

16. I am at my most emotional when I am tired. My mother used to call this "falling apart at the seams" and I still do it. Poor Ralexwin endures alot of brow beating and sobbing when I am tired and does his best to direct me towards my pillows when I get this way. So if for some reason I blow up at you during a conversation your first reaction ought to be to check the clock.

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…
