Academy for Little Ladies-Session 1 Lesson 4

It's the final day of our first session of the Academy for Little Ladies. Can you believe how fast time flies?! We hope you've all made some great friends here and learned a few fun tips to making yourself a little more lady like.

 We know you're excited to hear some more about us so we won't keep you waiting any longer.

Vicbowin can read several books at once. Cannwin can only read one book at a time. Vicbowin is 21 years younger than her mother. Cannwin is 38 years younger than hers. Vicbowin will need braces someday, Cannwin has already had them (and still has nightmares about it).

Now on to lipstick.

Several stages go into making the perfect lips, but first you need to understand the reason we use lipstick. Lipstick is used to make your lips look more red. For any adults reading this it has to do with the birds and the bees and the hormones produced. For any children reading... it makes you look more lady like.

When applying lipstick you want your bottom lip to look slightly more plump than the top lip. You also want your lips to look puckered (like pucker up).

How Cannwin achieves this look is in three easy steps.

Step 1: Apply a darker lip liner and blend in. Cannwin never has lip liner so she quite literally uses a brown eyeliner pencil. Blending is important for this step, though, because you want your makeup to look natural and a big fat line across the bottom of your lip hardly looks natural.

Step 2: Don't go all the way to the edges of your lips. As stated before, imagine your lips puckered and  use that as a gauge. The upper lip line should fall short of the tips of your lips and vertical towards your bottom lip (make sense?)

Step 3: Apply more color to the bottom lip than the top. Finish up with chapstick or moisturizer and you are done.

Finally we can be done with makeup! With our easy process we promise you can look great in only minutes.

Let's see the difference, shall we.

And so we see... that little ladies rarely need anything to look marvelous.

Their mother's, however, could stand to do their makeup every morning. :)

I loved braces. I loved to change the colors to match the seasons. I must admit though, after one season of St. Patrick's Day, I never did green again. That was too food like and not costume 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…
