Why He's Called The Mischievite

I can't even begin to explain the trouble this kid can get himself into and every time I think his curiosity has calmed down a bit he does something else to bring it all back into focus. Case in point: when we were 'suppose' to be getting ready to pick up Ralexwin at the school. I'm hollaring for the Mischievite to find some clothes and this is what I he's doing instead:


This is permanent marker. The permanent markers his oldest sister was supposed to have put away.

For the rest of the day he went around like this (with pants and a shirt of course)... we went to Wal-Mart, the accountant, to pick up the kids... everywhere we went someone said something.

"Woah! You look awesome."

"Did someone get into the markers?"

And my favorite from Albowin, "Hey, your face is covered in pen."

This is the kind of reinforcement the Mischievite does not need. It'll just make him worse!

That night when I finally got him into the tub the water turned pink. Solid pink. And the marker didn't come all the way off, either. Now he looks like he has an uneven sunburn.

What a kid I have. He seems determined to make our lives more light hearted than it was before.

PS I still haven't found the marker.

Caleb did that once....except his was with a HUGE black perm marker and he colored EVERYTHING from his belly button down!! (my brother was babysitting...and Caleb somehow removed ALL of his clothes, found the marker and colored away! My brother still swears he doesn't know how it happened....Um could it be because you(brother) was NOT watching him?????? I was so upset then...but we have a great laugh about it now!)

If your kid and my girl ever got married and had kids. The earth would quake in fear.

It looks like instead of getting dressed, he decided to draw his clothing on. It would have passed for me.

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…
