All About Kisses

Before I had children I was told that the best love you could give a child was 100 kisses a day.

That advice has stuck with me and although I frequently fail at this kisses have become a common and wonderful aspect of my life.

I love kisses!

Smoochy kisses, and slobbery kisses (only from babies), and crazy throw themselves on mommy kisses. I love the cuddly kisses, the singing my kids to sleep kisses and the middle of the night drowsy kisses.

I also have my favorite places on my babies to kiss. Their chubby little necks or puffy, fat cheeks.

But my absolute favorite place to kiss is the bridge of their noses. My lips fit oh so perfectly into that sweet tiny space between their eyes. I have to get real close and cuddle up. Sometimes I even have to wrestle them to the ground, but it's worth it.

It's the softest, sweetest spot. Worth every single gentle kiss my kids can stand (and then a few more).

You should try it sometime.

Now, I'm off to go kiss my kids!

PS I'm compiling a list of things the kids say... sorry to keep you waiting so long this time.

I love kisses too even if I have to wrestle my kids or husband to get them!

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…
