Tumblr

Have you guys ever heard of Tumblr?

I honestly hadn't until like three days ago, and I've decided it's the best internet spot on earth... besides here.

It's like twitter, blogger, and facebook all in one and the best thing is you can feed all of those things into each other using Tumblr.

So, that's what I've done. I have all of my blogs (askcannwin, literarysoundtrack and here) all feeding into Tumblr which feeds into my Twitter account--that up until now was getting 0 use.

I can click on a little button in my bookmarks bar and insta-share anything I love online... quotes, photos, websites, even videos.

I'm still trying to figure it all out, but if you were wanting a little more about who's the who behind this blog you should go check me out over there.

Then follow me (or however it works over there). Maybe I'll keep up with an account, maybe I won't, but it seems like a pretty hands off site and I'm perfectly okay with that.

Now, as for my weekend. Vicbowin has what I'm assuming is an ear infection so we were up a lot.

Ralexwin was off playing Army and came home looking as handsome as ever in his uniform. I love the way he smells when he gets home from the Reserves. Is that weird? The only way I can describe it is a 'man' smell. Maybe because he spend 48 hours only with other men so there isn't any of those soft female floweriness floating around him.

TMI? ;)

Albowin went off to school all by his little lonesome this morning and my mind raced with all the horrible things that could happen to an 8 year old alone on the way to school. I'm so paranoid.

Now I'm off to convince my Vicbowin that if she's really sick she needs to actually act sick.

Have a good day everyone!

Twitter, Facebook, myspace....Ahhhh it's all too much for me. All I do is blog!

As for a man in uniform, yep they have it going!! Although I also love a man who's hands are rough and strong and his arms can handle lifting heavy things. You know the kind with muscles.

A man has got to look like a man. I saw a guy the other day and I swear he had his arm hair waxed.
They looked as smooth as a baby's bum. yeah, no thanks!

The internet sometimes makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. So many ideas, so many things to test and not enough room to handle it all!!!

My husband and I once had to participate in a square dancing activity and I ended up paired off with this guy with the softest hands. I was so glad to get back into my husbands rough ones so I could appreciate them just a little more. :)

Wow I think I am totally behind on the whole internet thing when people start talking about feeds & twitter & all. I'm lame I guess.

I totally know what you mean by the smell. There are just some trigger smells that I love too. Others probably would think I am sumb but ehhh whatever they my triggers. :)

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…
