No Husbands Were Harmed in the Watching of this Wedding

Via Cannwin's computer screen
I watched the wedding. Admittedly I probably wouldn't have, but the Mischievite was beating me to a pulp with his feet and I couldn't sleep.

Besides Ralexwin and I have so much in common with the couple I felt it appropriate.

I mean,
>she has brown hair and so do I.
>She's got a sapphire on her left hand and my birth stone is sapphire.
>Her new husband has a receding hairline and so does mine.
>She wore white at her wedding and so did I.
>I've been outside Buckingham Palace, so has she.

Clearly kindred spirits.

Stretching it?

In  all honesty I'm a bit of a cynic about the whole thing. I'm not really convinced it's the grand love story everyone thinks it is. For instance, Prince William has opted NOT to wear a wedding ring. Really? Why not? It's too hard for a royal to wear jewels? He has too many and one little band is going to tip him over? The skeptic in me finds this suspicious.

I guess I'll have to wait for the movie to be convinced.

It's fun to enjoy anyway...just because big celebrations of any sort are exciting. Well, unless it's a public execution or the speech of a tyrant or something, those wouldn't be so much fun.

If you are interested in seeing anything regarding the Royal Wedding. You can go over to their official website (OfficialRoyalWedding2011.org--which is oh so creative).

If you are NOT interested... then please disregard everything I've said, I'm totally not interested too.

I thought it was great they got married I hope they were an example to other young & old people that think living together is better than being married. In Europe and around the world there are so many people think getting married is a thing of the past and like that STUPID argument Oprah likes to use "that it's just a piece of paper" maybe it will be the "New Thing" to actually get married BEFORE you have children.
I know it is most likely they only married for legal reasons but hopefully it will be the New Trend.
And about her dress.
I know some people didn't like her dress But I did. I thought it was a classic design and was not over stated and she looked lovely.
I like how she is NOT like many others that can afford to have whatever they want and so they go with something that shows no taste, & generally very bad style.
Classic never goes out of style.

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…
