I saw a pair of studded Vans on Etsy that someone made that cost about $150 (not exaggerating). I really wanted a pair but I was definitely not willing to pay $150 so I decided to make my own!

Tutorial under the cut!Collapse )

This was so easy to do and pretty fast - it took me less than an hour to stud both shoes. I'm going to do this again on the gray pair of sneakers I bought, but I'm going to change the pattern a little. I'd like to put more studs on the sides and back and less all over the toe.

To combat my icky fibromyalgia symptoms, I've been walking. A lot. I've been instructed not to engage in much other physical activity apart from swimming (bye, P90X) for the time being. We have some great trails in my hometown, so I've been taking full advantage of walking them. Plus, they go through the woods and I LOVE the woods!

This weekend Curt and I went to Littleton to visit his parents for Curt's birthday (his birthday is June 16th...).

I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed reading about a man covered in blood eating his own poo.

Spring has sprung in Connecticut, but as I say that, of course today is the first "cold" day we've had in several weeks. The weather's been beautiful but I've been quite unable to enjoy it, as my fibromyalgia, which was either briefly cured by Cymbalta or happily went away for a few weeks, has returned.

Thus is my life.

So finally I've thought about Mother's Day far enough in advance to make (not buy!) something I think is halfway decent. Usually I struggle the week before trying to think of something thoughtful but something that she'd actually want. This year I've combined a lovely craft with my mom's love of wine -etched wine glasses!Collapse )
Now I have four wine glasses to hang on to for a month.

Another day and I am magically sick. It is just a cold but I am so congested that I can't breathe and my head is full of crap. I had to work this weekend so I took a long nap after work and this has been my view all night:

I am currently watching the "Grief Counseling" episode of The Office when Michael's former coworker Ed Truck and also a small bird dies so they have a bird funeral, which is shown in the photo above. I'm debating calling out of work tomorrow even though I know I won't.

Since I spent the spare moments of my life in bed from October to February, I spent a while crafting and thinking about crafting and wishing I could craft when I was too tired and sore. I love all of the stuff I made and one of my favorites is this one. I cross stitched this onto a 12x12 canvas for an awesome wall hanging:


I'm debating whether or not to paint the edges of the canvas since I'm not framing it.

The end.

You may have noticed that I have been absent for the better part of six months. Why, you may ask?

I will tell you.Collapse )

I got this :)

I am laying here on what is essentially my death bed. Beginning last Thursday (meaning 11 days ago), I noticed my stomach was not feeling great.So much pain, uncomfortableness, and complaining...Collapse )The only (repeat... ONLY) good thing about this is that I've gotten to spend like almost two full weeks with my kitties:
