The Bad Relationship

Pregnancy and I are ready to part company. I just wish there was a way to pass this information to the baby in there. We've had a falling out, pregnancy and I. Well okay we HAVEN'T had a falling out... We haven't had an anything out... We're in fact still bound together, still forced to bear one anothers company for the sake of the child. At some point the child will be old enough that we can part company, but that hasn't happened yet and we've started losing sleep over it. We can barely share the same bed. Nightly arguments have begun, I want to know why I have to be the one to get up three times when Prego is the one who got us into this. Prego of course disagrees and argues that it's very much my fault and I'm going to have to deal with it.

I get no sympathy at all and perhaps that's why I think it's time to move on from this relationship. But Prego has sworn that this won't end pretty and I'm inclined to believe that. What does one do, though? When you want out, you want out and sometimes you're willing to accept a little pain to get there.

Yet I keep coming back and I'm fairly convinced I'm getting the short end of the stick here. I leave and Prego goes merrily along until finally I come crawling back, begging... 'Please just one more chance.' Which of course, it's been my experience that Prego is more than willing to accommodate. Then we endure one another, bickering like children while I descend into a world of binge eating and weight gain. Only to have it all end,again, in blood and pain.

When will I learn? It's never a positive experience! Were it not for the children I may very well question my mental state. The children make me pause and hesitate in complaining, Prego has given me some wonderful children. I just wish I could eliminate the middle man (Prego) and go straight to the kids. I think in the end we'd all be a little bit happier then.

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…
