Academy for Little Ladies-Lesson 2, Only Session

Today Instructor Vicbowin is going to give us the definition of a little lady.

But first, as always, lets learn a little about her. Vicbowin has lived in 3 states. She has participated in two years of ballet, two years of gymnastics and one year of softball. Her favorite sport is softball.

Q: When you think 'little lady' what is the first image that comes to mind?

A: Sitting up straight and being polite. She wears nice, clean clothes and has a pretty bed. Basically, I think of a princess when I think of a little lady.

Q: So, if a little lady is a princess, how do you act like a princess?

A: When I act like a princess I tell my friends not to say bad words. I don't keep secrets and I follow the rules.

Q: Do little ladies burp loudly?

A: No, because it's not very lady/ princess like.

Q: Who is your favorite princess?

A: My favorite princess is me.

Q: Why?

A: Because I'm polite and I'm responsible and I'm clean.

Q: Can you spot another princess on the playground?

A: Not usually but sometimes I see someone being nice and playing with other people. I know that they're the lady because they're being more polite than the others.

Q: What reminds you that you're a lady?

A: When I'm doing crafts with Instructor Cannwin I feel happy and loved. This helps me remember that I'm a little lady. Feeling loved is important to a lady because if a lady didn't feel loved then who would she marry?

Stay tuned for our next Lesson for Little Ladies.

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…
