Mountains meet the Ocean Shoes

Loved the marker shoe project so much I made another pair with a friend. This time, a mismatched color scheme which has since drawn a lot of comments from strangers. I had no idea they’d become a conversation starter! I’ve had fun proselytizing about the ease and absolute joy in the end results. I have another pair that has a light blue base that I’m going to work on next – I am definitely obsessed.



I enjoy going to the ever-popular “paint nites” with friends but usually, the paintings aren’t quite what I’d like to paint or I do a terrible job on them. This time, however, I managed to make a pretty cute painting, something I consider good enough to put up on the wall. The class was held at Arte in Wauwatosa, WI and their art space was pretty cute. I would do it again if I saw a painting I liked. Behold: Chik-ken!
