Come Join the Fun!

I know you were all super excited with the prospect of another blog swapperoo with Evelyn, but what with the whole Mo(u)rning Sickness she's having we decided to postpone it for a bit. :) More to come soon.

Until then I thought we could do another blog follower award.

Surely with the amount of new followers I have, and the three months that have lapsed since the last vote, we can come up with some new and exciting blogs we like.

So... to refresh everyone's memories about what my award is all about I'll be lazy and just quote myself:

Created on a whim to help me find some more blogs to read. Once in a while (a schedule to be determined by participation) I have a link and vote for a blog that my readers love. Then I give that blog this little cutie:

The criteria for blogs I look for are:

Small following (less than 250-ish)


Easy to read

Consistent postings

Relatively family friendly

Someone willing to have fun with my little award

Wordpress and other blog formats welcome!

So after a day or two of linking fun, then I'll put up a poll that you can all vote on. After that we'll all follow the blog that we've chosen (which makes everyone feel happy) and I'll email them the award for them to do with as they please.

Alright... let the link love begin!

(instead of you're blog and URL.... you are going to put the blog you're nominating)

You can add as many as you like.

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.
