Don't Get to Excited Now.

Headline for today:

Justice Ginsburg likely will be dead in 9 months

Hmm, well gee that's nice. I'm glad Justice Ginsburg and family can have a nice peaceful time together before she passes away.

Oh, wait... they won't be having a nice peaceful time, the bets have already been placed the horses are chewing at the bits and pawing at the dirt.

Don't anyone get to excited or anything we wouldn't want it to seem that we were waiting for her to give up or anything.

Sometimes headlines kill me. Really was there not a more appropriate way to break the news. Perhaps something to the effect of:

Family Mourns News that Justice Ginsburg has Less than a Year to Live.

Politicians Rally Around Grieving Family at News that Ginsburg Won't Recover

But no... we get beauties like:

SHOCK: Senator says Justice Ginsburg likely will be dead before year's end...

It makes me glad my family suffers from an accute case of anonymity. Heaven only knows what our headlines would look like.

When you're a famous writer with a world wide readership...all the important papers will headline...

Cannwin - on her last page!

Ok...that's pretty rubbish, but my brain is dead as in ded. Last night I spent half an hour or so on your blog listening to your music...I read your post and then couldn't be bothered to leave. I have a nasty head/chest cold. When lay down I start to drown in my own flem...not fun! Sleeping upright doesn't really work either, but I think I need to try again. I've had about 5 hours of sleep in 48...If I don't get some sleep soon the headline will be...

Husband arrested over suspicious death - wife falls down stairs - breaks neck. Leaves large life insurrance policy to husband. Distraught husband proclaims he's innocent. "Why would I kill my wife? I hate ironing and cooking...and I loved her."

I think the Goblin is home...have a fantastic undeadly day!!!!

I would just like them to wait till I was dead before burying me. Poor woman.

Cari, totally know what you feel like... I think my cold may be turning into a sinus infection (is that possible?). But I may be a bit overparanoid about it, the last time I had a sinus infection (and the only time) I suffered from migraines for a month and prayed it would never ever ever happen to me again.

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…
