Moving Forward

I keep getting asked about remarrying and even whether I've started to date again.

I find this all slightly insulting and more than a little humorous. It sort of feels like asking someone whether they are going to have anymore children as they lay there cradling their dead infants body.

It's not actually remotely in my spectrum of thought. The idea repulses me quite thoroughly.

Will there be a time when I do choose to date again? I have no clue, but it wont be tomorrow or the next day or the day after that.

It would be more like when I'm 90.

On that note... whoever the gem of town gossip it was that told Ralexwin that I was out on the town with some guy. Um... sorry, wrong person... maybe next time check first before you set a match under that kindling.

Now, as for this blog. I truly do not want this to become a venting spot for all things angry. I want this to be, as it always has been, a window into my life and the daily struggles and joys that make me cannwin.

Please don't think I have forgotten that.

Like today I heard Queen's "We Are the Champions" on the radio and couldn't resist turning it up as loud as Remewin's precious ears could handle (which is not loud at all). I secretly get a huge kick out of doing this because inevitably the old men in the cars around me do a double take. It's funny to imagine what they are thinking about the sweet, innocent looking young lady with classic rock cranked all the way up in her car. It's true... I like to be unusual. :)

If you feel the strong desire to email me privately you can click on the email address in the left hand side bar. I will get it, although I can't promise a quick response as the emotional unload stage of this all is quickly fading into hunker down mode.

Love you all

Ugh. I actually got asked if we were going to have more kids while I was in the hospital for my stillbirth. Sometimes people open their mouths and just vomit out whatever is floating around in there.

((hugs))

I was rocking out to "Fat Bottom Girls" in my car on Saturday. LOL

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…
