Strangers In the Night




Strangers in the night exchanging glances

The Mischievite loves to sleep in our bed. I don't mind so much, Ralexwin does.

Wond'ring in the night

Last night I woke to two sounds.


What were the chances. . .


The gentle pleading cries of Remewin wanting to eat and the tap, tap, tap of the Mischievite knocking on our bedroom door.


Strangers in the night, two lonely people

When I opened the door the Mischievite walked past me as if he had all the right in the world to be in our room. I chuckled and went to get Remewin.

When we said our first hello.

Little did we know

Ralexwin decided against having our night-time bed buddy and picked up the Mischievite. We passed each other in the doorway. Ralexwin heading out with one child, me going in with another.


Love was just a glance. . .


The Mischievite was furious. He screamed and sobbed and wailed for his "MOOOOOMMMMMY!"

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night


I layed in my bed nursing Remewin. Ralexwin layed in the Mischievites trying to calm him.


Wond'ring in the night
What were the chances we'd be sharing love
Before the night was through.


It was 3AM.

Little did we know
Love was just a glance


Just before I fell back to sleep I started humming a Frank Sinatra song I knew.


Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Strangers in the night. . .What were the chances
We were strangers in the night.

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…
