Plinky Prompt: What Offends You?

Nothing. I'm very rarely offended. ;)

No really should I list them?

1. I can't stand it when people make excuses for their behavior. I think I do this myself, but I try not to because it bugs me so very much.

Admit that what you do is because you want to do it and we can all move on.

2. People who complain about children. Especially when they are my children. This one has an entire subsection... I can't stand it when people say things like, "I worked more than 40 hours a week for all my pregnancies." As if those who choose to stay at home with their children are beneath them for not working at home.

Equally, it bugs me when stay at homers complain about people who work. I think it fits with #1. Why don't we spend time working on ourselves and not what we perceive to be wrong with everyone else?

3. People who listen to offensive music loudly in public places. Just stop! No one wants to hear it.

4. People who use offensive language loudly in public places. (see #3)

5. Vitriolic responses to peoples own personal opinions. Great example is Miss California. When you ask someone a question and they give you an answer you don't like, take your medicine like a big kid and move on!!!!

6. Under punishment for things I think should be severely punished and over punishment for those that shouldn't be. (Remember the judges I blogged about?) Here.

7. People who are easily offended. If you've got a problem with someone just say it.

Hmm, I think that's all for today. Anyone else?

Liars!! Whether it's a spoken lie or just something they purposely allow someone to misunderstand. There is nothing that makes me more crazy than that. It is something that bothers me like a red hot poker burning in my soul.

Hypocrites too. I think everyone is a hypocrite to a point because everyone knows things that they could/should do better and they don't. What i dislike is when someone clearly does something and then has no problem putting another person down for the same offence.

my signature... first off I went over to cutestblogontheblock and they've got a how to on signatures... except I'm not half as clever as they are and can't do those sorts of things so I googled blog signatures (or something) and found this website http://www.mylivesignature.com/mls_wizard1_1.php which was handy dandy... so I took signature from website and did what cbotb said to do and voila! (not as cute as theirs, but hey it works)

Linds! I am so not on your list of allowed people for your blog, did you know that?

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…
