Kids Funnies

First off I'd like to show you what the Mischievite did to himself at 4 AM this morning.

Why would I stick a bleeding baby into the tub? Because it's not blood it's the contents of a koolaid packet. It was all over him, but mostly around his neck...which gave the impression that his throat had been cut. Not a pretty thing to wake up to.

So as I was getting the Irish Twins ready for school (including doing her homework which got overlooked last night) and feeding Remewin I was also bathing Iyawin. Interestingly enough it was a rather calm morning and everyone got to school on time.

Okay. Kids funnies:

Last night 10PM Vicbowin and I in a physical tussle because she will NOT stop screaming and kicking. In a very serious/livid tone:

"I'm not using all my strength Mom because I don't want to hurt you... but I could if I wanted to."

Iyawin yesterday in the car:

"Knock, knock."

Me: "Who's there?"



"You can't ground me from my book! It's the only one I'm engrossed in."

Albowin upon getting glasses (blog post to come):

"Mom! Look how far I can see!"


"Mom your stomach is big! Are you going to have another baby?"

"No honey."

"How many babies are in there?"

"None dear."

"When do you think they'll come out?"

Albowin to the missionaries at dinner one night:

"I don't need to go to church I already know everything about Heavenly Father."

"Oh yeah... do you know what 'Exaltation' is?"



"I don't want to talk about it right now."

Those were funny! The picture scared me too! I can't imagine waking up to that.

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…
