Bad Mommy-ing

Today I made my children ride their bikes to school. It's currently 28*F.

Today I left the gate to the stairs open when I went down and Remewin fell down them... all the way down them.

Today I woke up to discover that the Mischievite had gone #2 and not wiped, I considered not caring.

Today I told Albowin that I didn't care if his brother called him 'a girl,' what I cared about was that he wasn't getting dressed.

I'm not sure when the last time Remewin had a bath was.

I made my kids wear the same pants to school today for the third day in a row.

Yesterday the Mischievite spent 90% of his day watching movies, while I played board games with our local missionaries.

I don't have a pumpkin, or candy, or finished costumes for any of the kids.

The Mischievite took scissors to Remewin's almost done Halloween costume and I yelled at him and made him cry.

Today I considered calling Ralexwin and yelling at him for not folding laundry (I didn't though because I recognized how unfair it was).

I'm not sure anyone brushed their teeth before leaving for school.

I'm not sure what they ate for breakfast before leaving for school.

I think my baby has a dirty diaper and I wish I didn't have to care.

After a day like that...tomorrow has to be some degree better, right? Good luck Cannwin Mommy!

This post makes me feel a little better about myself. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has days/weeks like that.

Oh my gosh it is days like these that make you want to lock yourself in the closest or better yet just go back to bed & wake up hoping things will reset themselves & not be so bad. I'd start by going to buy myself a latte or mocha or something, you know totally not worth the money but soooo worth the enjoyment of it. Ohhh or cheesecake. Cheesecake makes the world better LOL.

Oh my. LOL! I so have these days. Especially, the one about not caring the other kids are picking you because I care about you not getting dressed.

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…
