Cannwin Prompt: Burnt Pockets

Today I decided to use one of my own prompts, how convenient for me.

I frivolously and repeatedly spend money on ...... pajamas.

I can't help myself! When I go to the mall with a little cash I inevitably end up with a pair of pajamas. I love pajamas.

And I'm indiscriminate, I have pajamas from Wal-Mart,Target, Old Navy, Fredrick's of Hollywood AND Victoria's Secret. I've even been known to wear them as regular apparel.

I'm sure some people are rational about things like sleep-wear, but I'm not. They are so cute, with all the color and lace, and they are sooooo comfortable. Who can pass them up!?

The real clincher though, is I rarely wear them to sleep in (I'm more of a tee-shirt sleeper). I know, I know. Why buy pajamas if you don't even use them properly?

The answer is... I don't have an answer. I just like them.

I use excuses to get them too. Like when we first accepted house-renters I told Ralexwin that the reason I bought a new pair of pajamas was because I needed something to lounge around in. It was a lousy excuse and he knew it, but he just rolled his eyes and walked away.

What could he say? He knows my addiction.

The reality is that I'm so bad I have to steer clear of the sleep-wear section in stores. If I don't it's like a fly to honey... I find myself drawn in, lured by the promise of snuggly house-clothes.

Off the top of my head I can tell you that I have at least six pairs and I'm sure there's more.

I have more pajama pants than I do jeans.

It's ridiculous really. I'll go shopping for nice clothes and come home with at least one pair of P.J.s in the mix.

So there, now you know... it's official: I'm weird.

PS Big changes in my blogs look possibly coming this weekend so be prepared. Also my first blog award will be handed out tomorrow! Otherwise, have a great two days.

At least it is PJ's and not something like cars. It saves lots of money when you have a small obsession rather than some others....electronics!

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.

Mutterings of a Middle-Aged Dreamer

Use your words, my dear sweet soul, they are inside of you... So find them. Write, you silly girl, write so hard the world will never forget you.
But does it matter if the world remembers you? 
Age begins to press its hands upon your chest and the need to be remembered seems to increase with the pressure. 
That's not a line of thought you're interested in pursuing. 
Live in the now.
Does it matter if the world remembers you if your neighbor is going hungry? 
Perhaps age is merely pushing you out the door. 
Go. Live in the now.
