Embarrassing Moments: A Vlog

Today I'm going to do another Vlog for Dandelion Wishes. I have to tell you though, that I edited this one. It's my first ever video editing experience, but I just had to get the umms and hmms out of the thing.

I have to link this to Mamarazzi and Shawn but that's all in the way of rules (I think) so now I  can show you the video.

PS. This is my most embarrassing moment.

Ha ha! I love it! How do you get your kids to keep their area clean? And for that matter - do they keep their things out of your area? I'm intrigued. Right now, in the middle of a project, my entire house looks like your bedroom.

Hmm, maybe I should do a little tutorial on how i do it. :) I have these sticks... one side says the chore and the other side says 'done' then I have some cups with their names on them and each child has their own set of sticks. they have to flip the sticks over to be done with the chore... instant gratification solved and they don't fuss too much over it. :)

I also have an extra chores cup with chores that have an allotted price on them, they are supposed to pick these themselves during the week or I will pick them for them on saturday.... that usually doesn't happen.

I was going to ask....if you bought the skirt that you were holding!

I would have bolted too.

@Connie Weiss

I don't think the skirt I was holding was even in my size... it just happened to be the hanger I grabbed onto when I tried to save myself.

thanks for linking up, it was such a fun surprise to see you on the link list!

you poor thing with the embarrassing story..so funny though. i love that you opened your vlog with you laughing, CUTE!!

i don't think those 2 rooms are embarrassing..the carpet in your room is awesome. i can totally dig a 70's print carpet.

thanks so much for linking up!!!

Ugh! Yeah, that would be pretty embarrassing. Darn you didn't get your skirt.

Oh, girl! Is that the *carpet*? That would be pretty embarrassing. LOL And the kids' room is so NOT a mess...jealous!

I saw in your bio that you know how to spell Albuquerque...it's funny cuz it's true. Are you from The Q?

OH that's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I was thinking the skirt was attached to a fellow pregnant shopper!

I think they were just thrilled your water hadn't broke!

You have four people living in two rooms, I think it looks pretty darn good!

Thanks for linking up, you're a doll!

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…
