Giveaway Winner!

After waiting ALL day for Blogger to decide it wanted to love me again I have finally gotten into my posting screen and am ready to announce a winner for my 'boredom busters bucket.'

I was planning on doing a real post today, but Blogger has thrown off my entire schedule for the day by making me sit here and wait all morning. I finally just gave up and went about my routine... scrambling to save what was left of my day.

Now my schedule is wonkis and I'm sitting in a living room staring at a pile of dishes and thinking to myself how glad I am that I took the chance to prepare the boredom bucket over the weekend.

So who won!? Are you dying to know? Are you wishing, that with the odds being really in your favor that for once in your life you might actually win something!

Well for everyone except Jackie I suggest not buying a lottery ticket anytime soon.



That's right. Jackie won my boredom bucket! Hooray for her!



But don't worry, I'm going to email all of you the list pronto so that you will be able to make your own buckets in the near future.

As for Blogger being down all morning. Who can really fault them? Once in three years isn't to bad is it? I don't think so.

Let's just hope they aren't in charge of any nuclear codes or anything.

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…
