new shoes make me oh so happy...

they're black...
comfy & have cute bottoms to boot!
See the face?


then add a purse to really make me smile...
I LOVED the design & the colors too...
and since they coordinate with the shoes...
a must have...for sure...



And the next stop was @ GOODWILL...
since neither Rick or I have a job...
I made him go in with me...
I didn't want people to think we had no $$$ for clothes...ha!
Why making him go with me made me feel better...
I have no clue, but it did.
He didn't quite understand...
but that's what hubbies are for...

SUCCESS...for $3.79 I got a 100% wool mens XL sweater...

cheap...just what I wanted for a first time try...
It's in the washer now...getting shrunk & felted...

I'm thinking it will be fun to...
make (sweater ) art.

Very cute shoes & purse & what a great idea to get some wool at Goodwill. I think I'll check mine out & see what they have.

Hi Wendy -

Love the face on the bottom of your shoes. How about making a print of it or a mold and then you can have it all the time! Ok, I know I'm nuts.

Thought you'd like to see what you inspired me to make with grunge paper and grunge board. It's a the end of this blog post.

Wend...do U remember "Penscore"? The foam blocks that you heat with a heat gun and press a texture into and then stamp with ?
Well...you need to get a block of penscore, warm it with a heat gun and step on it with that fabulous shoe and make a stamp out of it.I kid you not !!!!

It will be fun to make sweater art Wendy. I'm making a bird out of some wool I felted - just the legs to do now :)

Oh I forgot, I meant to say the sole would make a freat stamp but was thinking by the time you finish with them the soles will be too worn to use. Didn't think about that stuff you could heat - don't think we call it 'Penscore' over here in the UK.
