Funny Things the Kids Say Part 567

Vicbowin: What if you lived in steam?
Later to her brothers: Guys, never walk in steam and if you ever have the chance, don't live in it... it'll kill you.

Vicbowin: Mom, what's your least favorite finger? I, myself, am not very fond of my thumb.

Mischievite: Pete and Pete are in a boat... and then them they fall out and then them died. (actually joke goes: Pete and Repete are in a boat, Pete falls out, whose left?)

Me: Since no one has school tomorrow I expect you all to sleep in.

Albowin: What!?

Vicbowin: Mom, Dad said that we could get up at 6:30.

Me: That's fine, but I just thought you might want to sleep in a little.

Vicbowin: Why?

Vicbowin version of 'Wheels on the Bus': The wheels on the bus go horizontal, horizontal, horizontal. The wheels on the bus go horizontal, all through the town.

The wipers on the bus go vertical, vertical, vertical. The wipers on the bus go vertical, all through the town.

The cell phone on the bus goes "Ah, ah, ah, ah staying alive, staying alive."

Mischievite: Mom, me wish I was a talking dog.

Albowin pointing at the clock: "It's almost 5, that means it's... ... ...4 something!"

Victoria: "Mom, am I really alive?"

Vicbowin: Why does the government make bad words, like the 'f' word?

Me to Remewin: Honey, you don't want to eat that. I promise you, gloves don't taste good.

Mischievite: Me can't marry her cause me no have a prince suit.

I'm always telling my son that socks and shoes don't taste good. But he tries it anyway and then looks at me with a "this is gross" look on his face. Me, I still eat rice cakes. I guess some of us never learn.

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…
