Mischievite: Mom is that your diarrhea?
Me: What?
 Mischievite pointing to computer: Your diarrhea.
Me: You mean my diary?
Mischievite: Yeah, diarrhea.

Mischievite: Mom, how did those people get turned into statues?

Mischievite: Pretend you a big giant mountain.
Me: Okay.
Mischievite: Hello, big giant mountain, what's your name?
Me: ::silence::
Mischievite whispering: Mom, you're a GOOD big, giant mountain.
Me whispering: Okay.
Mischievite: Big giant mountain what your name?
Me: ::silence::
Mischievite: Mom! Talk!!!!
Me: But I'm a mountain.
Mischievite: A TALKING mountain, Mom.

Mischievite: Mom, do you like fresh fingers?
Me: Fresh fingers?
Mischievite: Yep.
Me: Sure, they are the tastiest.

Mischievite after being walloped by his little sister: That's why we shouldn't have a baby.

--- And a little extra ---

Vicbowin: What's the fastest animal in the world?
Me: I think it's the Cheetah.
Vicbowin: No, that's the fastest mammal. What's the fastest living thing?
Me: Umm, I have no idea.

(Note: It's the Peregrine Falcon.... it can dive at over 250 miles per hour)

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…
