Exciting ones won!

Ok it's done now! Yeah!
Going to bed a tiny bit late, but I really wanted to get it done!

In progress, some of them have been sewn on.

Another progress pic to show I pinned it. That helped, but ties are still annoying...

All done! Look I added the grommet things, much easier than
I had feared, but not as easy as I had hoped.

Now, if you are my mom.

You are probably thinking

Oh, how interesting!

While calling for V or one of the girls.

Possibly even Peter.

You just need someone to give you a clue of what the heck I made.

Cuz you really really really want to leave a comment.

But you want it to be relevant.


To spare my sister, nieces and favorite brother-in-law from torture

Here is a pic to help you out.

It's not a corset per se, but it is based on that.

And it was made for someone smaller than myself.

Preferably someone who doesn't have ribs, they get in the way.

The smaller size was on purpose.

The ribs issue not so much.

But I'm confident Tami, Brooke, or some other skinny person can pull it off!

which one?

Let me know which one you like better. The difference is the top & bottom ties. Please no other suggestions or silly questions about what it is or anything like that. It is art in progress & if I can't decide on which ties for top & bottom it isn't ever going to be anything. And if you don't like either, that is fine too. So either say the plain ones, print ones, or neither. Thanks!

Tue Nov 8th

I made a skirt! No pattern. Just has a draw string waist. Not perfect, but I like it ok....

Pile of fabric from the thrift shop cost like 10cents

Front of the skirt with my shirt I got at the same thrift shop for 30 cents earlier today

Back of the skirt - it has a slit. Fancy.

I am wearing a lightweight skirt/slip under it as it is a knit fabric with holes in it. Intentional decorative holes, but holes none the less... And no the back seam it not completely straight. Fabric moves, it's quite annoying.

A bit Sun Nov 7th & Mon Nov 8th

Big mess of ties, fabric & sewing machine when I started.

With scriptures in it

Inside outside

You think it's hard to see this in the table? Just imagine what a puzzle will be like!

Sunday Nov 6th

Changing it up a bit.

This is now going to be primarily a photo blog. I have figured out how to transfer pics easily from my camera to my computer and most of what I do is hard to explain anyway. Besides a picture is worth a 1000 words.

Angry birds!

I am going to crochet a set of angry birds complete with pigs. I think I am going to make 3 or 4 pigs since there are little ones, ones with hats and the king one.

Friday, January 28, 2011

Day 11 Thur Jan 27

I had fun making up word associations while studying for my G&E test. And while this may not be totally following the directions and I was thinking about the stupid positivity article and it said part of it is being able to notice positive things. So I decided trying to figure out what I did that was fun is along those lines.

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Day 10 Wed Jan 26th

I went on a walk today for like 30 min. It was for fun so I vote it counts as playing. But I really am going to try to set aside time and really do the 15 minutes of art or playing thing and not just being like sure this counts.

Day 9 Tuesday Jan 25th

I went into town and hung out with people for about an hour at night. I vote chatting with people I don't see often counts as playing.

Day 8 Mon Jan 24th

Went to a birthday party and I went into town and went out for lunch. I vote those count as playing.

Day 7 Sun Jan 23rd

Umm don't think I did anything. Went to not a birth got home slept for a few minutes, went to church, slept some more, ate dinner, and then went to bed early.

Day 4 Thur Jan 20th

Once again made a plan to do something then it didn't happen. I did "play" watch a movie though...

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Day 3 - Wed Jan 19th

Played puzzle for 15 min. I also set up a table in the non-bedroom half of my room so I will have somewhere to do stuff.

Day 2 - Tuesday Jan 18th

Once my temp got back down to normal and I finished my homework I though about playing. I even had a plan about what I was going to do but then I went to my room to get a puzzle, I got distracted and totally forgot about til I was in bed for the night.

Day 1 - Monday Jan 17th

Was sick and running a fever most of the day and didn't really feel like playing. Closest I got was when I gave up on trying to do homework and just watched tv for like 30 minutes.


For counseling for the childbearing year 1 we have a positivity assignment. It is to "Select one of the proffered positivity “strategies” and keep a daily journal or checklist. Complete the assignment by completing a one to two page essay regarding your thoughts about the strategy you chose and the impact it has had upon you."

Not a fan of positivity but we'll see how this goes. None of the suggestions actually sounded very fun and I found it kind of annoying that some were only 3-5 minutes and others were 30 (which doesn't make sense to me) but another student mentioned art for the 15 min of playtime a day one so I figured yeah sure I can do art or play, whatever.
