Procrastination Nation

Good morning my fine friends. I have so much to do today that it's slightly ridiculous, but the fun doesn't really begin until this afternoon. At 3P Albowin has a doctor's appointment (I hate late Dr. appt's), then at 4:30 Vicbowin has to be at the church for an activity of her own that goes until 6P. After I pick her up, I have to rush home, get everyone fed... who will all be hungry ogres by then.... and then rush off again for Vicbowin's last softball game at 7:45.

But before then I really have to work on some words to say when I speak in front of my congregation on Sunday. What's my topic? Unity in the Gospel. What do I have written? One paragraph. Not my typical I assure you, usually the words come out of my head faster than my fingers can type but not with this one. I'm struggling with this one.

I also have to prepare a lesson for Sunday because I get the privilege of not only talking in front of everyone, but I get to teach the lesson later on!

You might be wondering what I've been up to this week if I knew I had to do all of that today? Well... yesterday I created a new blog.

That's right staple a sign to my head and call me a procrastinator.

But about my new blog.

I'm excited to present to you askCannwin.

askCannwin is a blog where you, the reader, can pose any question your heart desires to the blogger, me, and get an answer. How much fun is that? I'm like 'Dear Abby!'

Questions can be anonymous if you want, but I'd really appreciate if we kept this all fun and not creepy. :)

So hop on over and ask away. I'm so very excited to see what comes of this.

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…
