How To Get More Blog Hits

Warning: This post contains discussions of my inner female organs.

I've got this pain in my right side. It's not new... in fact since the Mischievite was born it's been coming more and more frequently and pretty regularly. I'm convinced it's a re-occurring cyst on my ovary.

So last night I lay in bed tossing and turning and wondering (not for the first time in my life) why I wasn't taking pain pills.

This morning I'm sitting on the recliner, laptop pulled up to my stomach so that I can pull my legs up to my tummy as well (not very good for typing posture, but I don't care right now).

As I sat in this protective posture, wondering--again--why I haven't taken an Advil, Ralexwin and our tenant, Elizabeth, walked into the kitchen.

"Cannwin is in pain all over in her stomach." Ralexwin announces to the world at large. "She thinks it's Ovarian Cancer."

Elizabeth looks up in shock.

"No, I don't." I say rolling my eyes.

Ralexwin chuckles at his little joke. "She wishes it was Ovarian Cancer."

"No, I don't! Weirdo." I exclaim. "Why would I want cancer?"

"Admit it, if you got cancer then you could talk about it on your blog and you're hits would go way up."

I roll my eyes.

"You'd be able to explain all of the horrid details and everyone would go 'Oh poor Cannwin! You're so brave' and you'd sky rocket into blog-fame."

"Yes, but then I'd have to go through Chemotherapy and that would make me nauseous and you know how much I like to be nauseous."

Ralexwin just chuckled.

My husband... man of sensitivity.

At least he's worried about how many readers I have. ;)

When I had pain in my right side, it was gall stones - no fun. I hope whatever it is that it goes away soon because it is awful being in pain.

Oh my goodness... You guys are funny :)

I could say that I was an original reader when you get all famous and what not ;)

That was so funny that I had to read it to Victoria. She just laughed and said she could totally see the conversation going on. It is better when you know the two of you than if you were just some random reader. Thanks for the laugh.

I hate ovarian cysts. I'm sorry.

Husbands can be such dorks sometimes. Sounds like something mine might say.
LOL! Glad that he's concerned for you... whether it be your health OR your 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…
