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.

Car-Seat Cover Tutorial

Choose your fabric. It's fine to buy something a little cheaper for the back, since no one is going to see it. In fact I got both of these fabric pieces in the clearance section at Wal-Mart. You will also need, matching thread, batting for the middle, and binding for the edges. And alot of pins.

Take your old car seat cover and lay it flat on the paper you've chosen to use. You will have several sections you need to trace: A top, a bottom, and any sides or overhanging areas.

Now draw around the first section of the layed out car seat.. Generally speaking you can assume that the binding is hiding your seam so you don't need to make an allowance for it, but be aware that the issue might arise.

Be sure to mark any parts that lie on the inside of the pattern, like strap holes and any extra stitching.

Your patterns will start looking something like this.

When you cut out your pattern sections, remember to write what each line is for, and cut any holes so you can m…
