10 Reasons I Love Being An American

1. When I get hungry I just go eat something.

2. I can read whatever I want! Anti-Christian, Anti-Islamic, Anti-American, Anti-Reality.

3. I can travel to the climate of my choice without getting a passport.

4. I don't live in a mud hut.

5. Contrary to popular belief it is possible for doctors in this country to save lives (before they worry about their profit margin's) I would know.

6. I have a right to bear arms!!!!!!!

7.  I have a right to go to whatever church I want, with my head uncovered and my ankles exposed.

8. I choose for myself what career I'll have.

9. I can have as many children as I want.

10. It's actually written that I have a right to pursue life, liberty and happiness.

Remember, people actually die to allow you the right to care.... so care.

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. :)

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:

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).

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.
