Cough, Cough, Cough. Wheeze, Wheeze, Wheeze.

We've decided the baby is our "sickly" child. He was at it again last night *rolls eyes* coughing up a lung or two and making everyone's lives miserable, including his own.

The poor thing, it's like every respiratory ailment that floats along the air see my baby and makes a b-line straight for him. So I'm off to the doctor again today for him. It was supposed to be his 2 year old well child checkup but since he had a fever all night long I'm thinking that they aren't going to be to apt on giving him any shots.

What a long night!!!!! I can't believe how exhausted I feel. I think I got maybe an hours worth of sleep in all and that was between more than one bed. Iyawin keeps going from happy, cheerful baby to utter grump. I think he's just as tired as I am.

So anyway, lots to do today.

I need a topic to blog about anyone have any ideas?

Sick kids are never a good time. All I can say is I'm sorry and I hope you get a nap today.

You could blog about that strange painting...why is the woman on the the right in what appears her underwear? And who is that poor creature with blood running down it...clearly the person in the bed is ill...or something...enlighten us?

I love your latest blog background. I think the colour and design is quite soothing...and very cute!

PS I feel for sleep? Ouch!
I think this is why God did not send me any children, without sleep I turn into a certifiable PSYCHO...if you don't believe me, ask your poor sister...she knows!
I hope you get a nap too...your poor little man...that's rough catching everything blowing in the wind.

Yes it is a bit odd. But art is always worth taking a second look at. This particular one is called "The Sick Child" and is part of the exhibit at the Lemon Street Gallery in your neck of the woods actually my dear. The gallery is in Cornwall and is considered one of the UK's leading contemporary art galleries.


I don't know if I'm so into contemporary works but sometimes I find them utterly amazing (maybe this wasn't isn't AMAZING but it's interesting). If you would also note the nun in the picture, and seriously is that blood coming from the neck? Hmm.

I think I should find artwork (where possible) for all my blogs that would make things a little more diverse.

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…
