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.

Car-Seat Cover Tutorial

Choose your fabric. It's fine to buy something a little cheaper for the back, since no one is going to see it. In fact I got both of these fabric pieces in the clearance section at Wal-Mart. You will also need, matching thread, batting for the middle, and binding for the edges. And alot of pins.


Take your old car seat cover and lay it flat on the paper you've chosen to use. You will have several sections you need to trace: A top, a bottom, and any sides or overhanging areas.


Now draw around the first section of the layed out car seat.. Generally speaking you can assume that the binding is hiding your seam so you don't need to make an allowance for it, but be aware that the issue might arise.


Be sure to mark any parts that lie on the inside of the pattern, like strap holes and any extra stitching.


Your patterns will start looking something like this.


When you cut out your pattern sections, remember to write what each line is for, and cut any holes so you can m…
