Did You Hit Him?

So the kids are out playing in the water when I hear this WHAP! And then the baby is crying. I go outside just sure I know what's happened (since it's pretty common). And what do I find? A 2 year old boy with a bright red hand print on his back and his brother standing nearby acting as innocent as the day he was born.

“Did you hit him?” I asked, rather exasperated.

“No.” Was the reply.

“Come here.” I say, turning the baby around so his brother can see the huge hand print. “Did you hit him?”

He's caught now, and he knows it, the evidence is pretty clear.


*insert lecture here*

I had to take a picture, but it didn't come out as well as I had hoped... camera phones being what they are and all... so I tweaked the image a little for your viewing pleasure. If you look at the bright red spot you can almost make out the image of a hand, most especially the thumb.

I think it's funny he thought he could get away with a simple 'no.' It was soooo obvious.

Maybe this is where the phrase "caught red-handed" came from??

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.

Mutterings of a Middle-Aged Dreamer

Use your words, my dear sweet soul, they are inside of you... So find them. Write, you silly girl, write so hard the world will never forget you.
But does it matter if the world remembers you? 
Age begins to press its hands upon your chest and the need to be remembered seems to increase with the pressure. 
That's not a line of thought you're interested in pursuing. 
Live in the now.
Does it matter if the world remembers you if your neighbor is going hungry? 
Perhaps age is merely pushing you out the door. 
Go. Live in the now.
