Tuesday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 10:40 am

Good morning readers…

The weather here in the burbs has been warm and sunny the past couple of days. Luckily we’ve not had any rain so the folks that were affected by the tornados have a chance to collect thier belongings and clean up without worrying about bad weather.

I’m still busy playing catchup this week. A few more Chameleons went out to thier new homes yesterday. They’re getting nice reviews from new owners.

I’m working on my ideas for my swap book that’s due out on the 15th.

I found a pair of pink Timberland boots at the thrift store for eight dollars yesterday. They are in almost new condition. I have been looking around for a pair of shoes to paint on and I think these will be perfect. (Note…it’s the odd artist part of my personality that wants to do this.)

Of note…

Check out these instructions over on the Layers Upon Layers blog for making a leather look felt. It’s definitly on my “try it” list.

Sue Bleiweiss has got a new online mixed media journal class starting up on June 9. I wish I could afford to take it. It looks really fun. For now I’ll just have to oogle the really cool books that she posts over on the blog.

I hope everyone has a wonderfully creative day!

  2. Love the idea of painting on pink boots. Sometimes people just use boots as planters. Not mine, but hope the picture comes through!

  3. Hi Jackie

    Thanks for the links, I too would love to take Suzie’s class but alas have no funds either. I painted a pair of black DM boots too. Back in my juggling days I painted a jester juggling on the ankles. I loved them and so did a lot of other people too. It is very true if you have art on your shoes it does start conversations and also makes people smile.

    Have fun and do post pictures of the results won’t you.

    Best wishes
