Mosquito's part 36549

So I've been doing a little 'experiment.' I'm not scientist and this is a very limited field to test from but the results are fascinating. I was told recently by someone at church that mosquito's are attracted to 'O' blooded people.

I'm 'O' blooded, and we all know that they LOVE me. So I started asking around. Every time someone chimed in about how mosquito's seemed to pick them out of a crowd I'd ask them what blood type they were. Out of the five people polled, five of them were 'O' blood type.

Interesting? I think so...

I also learned recently (from the extra's on the movie Jumanji) that:

1)Mosquito's are considered the most deadly creatures on the earth (because they cause the most death and disease)
2)The little devils single people out of a crowd. They actually choose a victim from a group and all attack that one person. Well, that would be me.

So here's the trick. You need to find a friend with 'O' blood. Possibly a pregnant one or a young child (since my 2 year old gets it far worse than I ever do) and you need to stick to them like glue all summer long. This will ensure that you will have less bites and... according to Jumanji... be less likely to kick the bucket from this very dangerous creature.

Or you could just stay inside and not come out till the first snow... it's your choice.

Mosquitos eat me for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I am O positive.

And they always seem to go for my legs while I sleep. What's the science behind that?

I have O blood and I am preg. but don't get bitten. But someone told me that if you take a dryer sheet and rub it on yourself and hang it in your pocket or somewhere, it acts like a mos. repellant. I haven't tried it but it is worth a try. It smells a lot better than repellant.

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.

Car-Seat Cover Tutorial

Choose your fabric. It's fine to buy something a little cheaper for the back, since no one is going to see it. In fact I got both of these fabric pieces in the clearance section at Wal-Mart. You will also need, matching thread, batting for the middle, and binding for the edges. And alot of pins.


Take your old car seat cover and lay it flat on the paper you've chosen to use. You will have several sections you need to trace: A top, a bottom, and any sides or overhanging areas.


Now draw around the first section of the layed out car seat.. Generally speaking you can assume that the binding is hiding your seam so you don't need to make an allowance for it, but be aware that the issue might arise.


Be sure to mark any parts that lie on the inside of the pattern, like strap holes and any extra stitching.


Your patterns will start looking something like this.


When you cut out your pattern sections, remember to write what each line is for, and cut any holes so you can m…
