Kid Funnies

Conversation between Albowin and Ralexwin:

R: Okay, how do you spell 'people'?

A: P-E-O.... P-E-L

R: Close, but remember that in this word the E is at the end.

A: Oh! Okay. P-E-O-P-E-N

R: No.

A: P-E-O-P-N-E-N

R: No. I didn't say there was an 'N' after 'E', I said there was an E at the end. Try again.

A: You said there was an 'N'.

R: No, there was an end.

A: Like 'Y'!?

The Mischievite saying goodbye to his dad.

M: Bye! Remember Dad, don't walk in the road and don't die!

Ralexwin and Albowin:

R: Okay, now spell 'family.'

A: F-I-M-L-E-D

R: What? No... listen to the sounds, please.

Bedtime Negotiations:

A: Since I didn't get to go to bed until 8:14, I think I should be able to keep my light on later.

R: I understand, but you have to be up early tomorrow so you can't keep it on past the usual 8:30.

A: How about 8:39?

R: I don't think I can go past 8:37.

A: 8:38?

R: Alright... 8:38.

Ralexwin and Albowin:

R: Okay, 'tried.'

A: T-H...

R: No!

That right there is the reason I don't help my boy with his spelling... I can't handle the random letters he throws in, but it sure does make great fodder for the blog. :)

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…
