Hee Hee Hee Haw Haw Haw

(First off who can tell me what movie my title comes from? It's in a song in a movie)

Okay:
-------------
Vicbowin: Is that a debit card or a gift card?

Me: Gift.

Vicbowin: Oh. Gift cards aren't as much fun... because you can only use them once and you can use debit cards over and over again.

----------------

Albowin: Which aisle do you want me to go down.

MC: That one.

Albowin: Which one!?

MC: The first one.

Albowin (frustrated and consequently loud): Do you want me to go down that aisle or the one where the lady with the different color skin is?

---------------

(at Vicbowin's baptism)

Iyawin screaming at the top of his lungs and kicking so hard his socks fly off: I wanna take a baff too!!!!!

-------------

Vicbowin: Jane isn't very nice. She lies a lot. She has a brown face.

Me: What!? That doesn't have anything....

Vicbowin: I know, I know. I know a lot of people with brown faces that are really nice, she just isn't.

Me: (Thinking to myself that the topic of skin color needs to be readdressed.)

-----------

Albowin trying to read: for I.... kuh- now.

Ralexwin: Know.

Albowin again: kuh... kuh... now.

Ralexwin: Know.

Albowin: Ugh! kuh... now

Ralexwin: Know, know.

Me: The word is 'know' honey.

Ralexwin: Oh, yeah, sorry the word is 'know.'

--------

Vicbowin (after reading us a story): Just a sec I have to go to the bathroom. Reading always makes me need to go to the bathroom.

Melissa: Hmm, that's an interesting urge.

After wrestling over a chicken nugget that had been dropped on the floor at McDonalds.

Me: Honey, you don't want to eat food off the floor, especially here.

Albowin: Why?

Me: Because it's dirty.

Albowin: But I like dirty food. It tastes good.

---------

Vicbowin: So if a bank is just a place where you put your money, then how do banks make money?

Explanation ensues

Vicbowin: What! They steal your money!?


---------

Me: Okay time to go get dressed.

Albowin: But MOOOOM! My legs are hungry.

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…
