Kids Say The Darndest Things

Me (bowing deeply): Oh, my goodness! Your Highness!
Mischievite: Mom, will you stop saying that. I'm not a prince.
Me: Then what are you?
Mischievite: I'm just a kid in a prince outfit.

Albowin: Your eyes are the color of green pickles.

Grandma: I didn't know all that about frogs and toads.
Albowin: Did you even go to school?

Albowin: Grandma, why is one side of your hair white and the other side yellow?
Grandma: It is?

Mischievite (after every time that his sister bugs him): That's why we shouldn't have a baby.

Neighbor Girl: Mom! He just put his chocolate ice cream in my pretty blonde hair!

Mischievite: Mom, he just hit me with his head.

Albowin: Except, I just have one single question.

Mischievite: Mom, Mom, I have some bad news.

How about, "I will fix it. I'm a great fixer!"

I love the one about Grandma's hair. I can totally imagine her response.

I love the one about Grandma's hair as well. It's just the sort of thing a kind would notice and then mention.

I once went to visit a friend who'd married a man with two young children. We were sitting at the table and the girl (about five) looked at me and said. "You have marble eyes." I love it...marble eyes. She's now grown up and a mother of two. Weird!

The last time I was at my sister's (it must have been shortly after arriving) one of my nieces looked at me and said, "You're fat!" I said, yes I am. Years later she apologized with the cutest hand made card. Kids are so funny! The next time I visit...I'm NOT going to be fat!

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.

Mutterings of a Middle-Aged Dreamer

Use your words, my dear sweet soul, they are inside of you... So find them. Write, you silly girl, write so hard the world will never forget you.
But does it matter if the world remembers you? 
Age begins to press its hands upon your chest and the need to be remembered seems to increase with the pressure. 
That's not a line of thought you're interested in pursuing. 
Live in the now.
Does it matter if the world remembers you if your neighbor is going hungry? 
Perhaps age is merely pushing you out the door. 
Go. Live in the now.
