Dear World Wide Web,
I miss you. I know you probably don't care--but there it is. I'm lonely for you and I was wondering if you felt the same. Is it possible that we could come to some sort of arrangement? I know you have a lot of other people vying for your attention I was just hoping I might be special. Do you miss me?

If you feel the same just give me a sign, something... anything to show me you notice me.

Forever Devoted,
Cannwin

If I posted something like that, my husband would turn off the internet connection when I wasn't looking and say "I think your sign arrived". The thing about the internet is that it will be there when you get back :)

okay, so I know you can't talk back or anything ON THE INTERNET but surely you could call me if you wanted :P There is this gal in Australia doing a goodies in the mail exchange thing. It's almost like having a pen pal, but with gifts! I thought it would be so much fun and since you love the pen pals as much as I do, I thought I'd give you the link :P

Sign-ups are until February 13th, so luckily your period of internet abstinence will be complete. Don't let the Sisters con you into this again. I don't think the internet could survive it.

I miss you! I think you're fantastic company and I enjoy reading your ramblings. I've been mentally off line a few days otherwise I would have told you sooner. I think I'm coming down with another cold, but at least I went to the dentist on Saturday (bad-pscyho-day) and had the x-rays and check-up (that was my birthday present). It cost about
80$ just to be told I have tooth that needs to be pulled...I could have told them that for nothing, but nevermind. I have an appointment to be tortured, but in the mean time...I think my stuggling immunce system is going to throw a few more tantrums and then hopefully 2010 will be a mega healthy year! Hope is free thank goodness!!! I hope your back is feeling better today!!!!!

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…
