Kids Funnies Part 134

I know I just posted one of these, but I had some new ones pop up that I had to share.

Daughter: Mom were you born in 1880 or 1980?

6 year old Son: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August... My birthday is August 22.

Me: No it's not.

Him: It's not!? (pauses to think) It's October!!!! OOOOOOOH that's so far away.


Yesterday at dinner:
Daughter: I have 5 favorite places to eat: McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Little Italy's, Dairy Queen and Mom's!

6 year old Son: Oh yeah, well I have four places I like to eat.


Day before that:
Me: Honey what's this sticky note on your folder about?
6 year old son: That's what my teacher gave me so I could remember the street I live on.
Me: But you don't live on Clark.
6 year old: My teacher says I do.
Me: Well, believe me, I know a thing or two about this one and you don't.
Him (frustrated): Ugh! then where do I live?
Me: Here I'll write it down for you okay.

*note: it turns out the 'teacher' was a substitute... probably the same one that believed the kid when he told her he rode the bus home.

They are so fun. We miss you guys. It has been a long, long time since we last saw you.

I still remember the one about the bus. I've re-told that one to a few people, I think it's so funny.

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…
