I Secretly Hate the Current Fashion Trend of:

Okay, let’s be honest here. I just can’t narrow it down to one.

PhotobucketHere’s my personal opinion. Shoulder pads, neon, and parachute pants are three things that died and should have stayed dead. Period. End of story.

Now that we’ve got that cleared up, I’ll say: I am not a fan of ankle boots.

Ironically, I owned a pair in 5th grade, and I thought I was pretty hot stuff.
But back then I also thought that wearing spandex under short, shorts was cool,
So I rest my case.

There, that’s finally off my chest.

While I'm away, I've managed to wrangle some of my most loyal followers into posting for me. This dear girl is A Goddess In Progress and has honored me with 4 whole posts. Take the time to honor her by commenting and hopping on over to her blog afterward. -Cannwin

I hate the fashion trends that show tons of skin. That's all I'll say on that.

But there's a weird trend going on here at my college- there's these feathers that you can put in your hair and it stays there for however long you want, and you can wash it and braid it and whatever. It's one of those fads that exploded here, and everyone is doing it (except me). It's kind of weird. Feathers? Who knew?

The trend I don't like that's back is leggings! Why does everyone think look great in leggings? I think that is a trend for ONLY little girls, high school, 1st year collage students. That is something you would expect them to wear but anyone older I think they look STUPID!!! And the feather hair extensions thing that is popular here in phoenix as well I don't like it much but I don't much like the tinsel hair extensions either I think it looks like you had a run in with a Christmas tree. I think those are also fads for only the young female. And what Ashy said about the trend to shows tons of skin I don't like it either. I am woman and I think it's very awkward trying to talk to another woman when she's practically naked! I know they think 'what's the big deal We're all woman but I don't care I don't want to see you mostly naked it's weird!!!
What I do like is the diversity in trends right now. So if you don't like one trend there are many more to choose from.

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…
