Hello? Can You Hear Me Now?

I got a new phone for Valentine's Day. I'm so excited! It pretty much just rocks. I've never had a nice phone before.

It also has video which is fun as well. Especially when it's been years since we've been able to record our kids. Let's see if I can upload something....

So this is the Iyawin. When I say "Say I love you," you just might be able to hear him making kissing sounds. Oh and that would be my 'mommy' voice, I'm not usually so hmm, sing songy.

Hmm, okay my phone is called a Palm Centro and although it has the capability of using the internet Ralexwin says we can't afford it. *sigh*

So, short blog today but my battery is rather low and I think that that-there cutie is into something.

Have a great day!

Squee!! My phone is a Centro, too. Also a present. We are married to good guys, huh?

Now we are Centro twins. ;)

New toys are lots of fun.

When do you get to find out what you're having?

I don't think we will be finding out what we are having. We are considering surprising ourselves.

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…
