Wednesday

I smell like onions. It's all over my fingers and I can't seem to get it off!

It's probably because I burnt the onions last night. You might be wondering how someone burns onions... Well it takes some serious skills involving having two hands being needed in a million places at once. Essentially single momming it as a complete definition.

First you have to take a woman trying to cook dinner and add a two year old who needs to pee.

Next add a ten year old sister who refuses to help the two year old on the premise that pee is gross!

Then to spice things up you need to wait until the two year old wets her panties all over the floor and down the hall. Add in--tears and hysteria from both the girl children and a little hollering from cooking woman. Stir thoroughly.

Once this is all in the pot (with the sautéeing onions) make sure the baby slips in the pee and hits her head... Twice.

Add a quick bath, the arrival of the dinner guest, a still wailing ten year old who swears she has no clue how to clean up pee and what you get is completely forgotten sautéeing onions.

And that, my dear friends, is the edact recipe for how to piss off the god f
Onions.

Which is why my fingers must still smell like onions.

What do you think?

Ps. Picture is totally irrelevant except to illustrate the children in my life-/who got a hold of my iPod and took this picture.

Sounds like an effective recipe. Not to be unkind or anything, but it's not a recipe that we'll be trying here.

Blessings and Bear hugs in an "interesting" time for you.

Sounds like a full house! Love the picture! Just remember you are a strong woman, and a daughter of God. He is always with you.

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…
