Vicbowin: Dearheart, Lovebug, Eight Year Old Teen

*Schoolwork assignment

Which container holds the most marshmallows? How do you know?
Medium. We counted all of them. Gees did you know that?

Which container has the smallest volume? Explain.
Tall-we counted! Gees it was easy.


*From childrens program at church

I love my family because they give me food.
They are sweeter than the color of Mars.
Mom makes me Halloween costumes
(homemade costumes are better than store bought costumes.)
They gave me life.
They gave me brothers and sisters
(though sometimes I have to be really patient.)
My mom and dad
better than my friends.

"Mom, you look like you still have a baby in your belly."
"Is that like saying your f-a-t?"
(five minutes later)
"It's not that you are f-a-t, it's just that it looks like you are."

*from a story written by Vicbowin

I'm stuck in a tower.
A prince will come and save me
Maybe cousin George, Kyle, or
Maybe Uncle Smile
Hope they save me.

I love're not just look like you are. That's a kid for you! The last time I was at my sister's (my sister and her husband both run marathons for fun - the whole family is really slender) my niece who was five looked at me and said..."You're fat!" I said, "Yes I am." And then I thought something along the lines, "I was once a slender child...just you wait...if you got Grandma Blanche's genes you'll be fat too (unless you take up running)." I think its a good thing we can't remember everything we say in childhood!!!!

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.
