Funny Kids Funny Words

 (cute as ever)

Body Parts

(interaction between me and the Irish Twins)
Vicbowin: Mom! He called me a bumper.
Me to Albowin: You can't go around calling people bumpers...that is a bad word!

Translation: Bumper is butt.

Me: Baby, where did you put that paper?
The Mischievite: Ober dere (over there).
Me: Over where?
The Mischievite: In your bum.
Me: Not funny.
The Mischievite (giggling): Yes, it i-i-is.


The Mischievite: Me put my feet in the mud?
Me: Sure if you want, just don't come onto the carpet after.
The Mischievite: Me can? And my hands?
Me: Sure.
The Mischievite: And my shirt?!

The what of who I am

Vicbowin: You know, I'm not going to act like a girly girl anymore. I'm just gonna act like myself.
Me: How do girly girls act?
Vicbowin: They chase boys and I don't like to chase boys... except for G. because he chases me back.

(After winning a raffle prize)

Albowin: I think people must like me because I have glasses.

Dangerous Places

The Mischievite: Me no go to the park alone?
Me: Nope, you stay in the yard, okay.
The Mischievite: Me no go to the park alone, cause then I'd die.

The Mischievite (in tears): Me go to the libwawy too!
Me: No, you can't go to the library without mom, honey.
The Mischievite: Cause then I'd die?

Me: Baby, you need to pick up this stuff when you're done playing with it or your sister could put it in her mouth.
The Miscievite: Mm-Hmm. She put it in her mouth and then she'd die.

My kids always come up with the funniest things. I love writing them down.

My Mischievite is definitely obsessed with death right now, but I've learned that at his age it's fairly common, at least in my house. I don't think he understands what it means.

Too funny. I love the mud one! One day M might go somewhere alone and not die and then he won't believe anything you taught! J/K

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…
