Stay at home footstool
You know me as a Dollar Tree loyalist. But I discovered a Five Below store here in Tulsa a few months ago. Bought this little stool - because it was $5.00. No other reason. It screamed "Bling me up". And I'm so proud it's not sitting here staring at me as a UFO (Un Finished Object). A little decoupage on the legs, crochet around the side, thank you My Talented Crochet Artist Debbie for teaching me crochet. Many thanks to My Dear Ones from beading class in Santa Fe, especially Our Beader Extraordinaire Teacher Joni Alm.
Beading US Keds obsession
Custom US Keds
My Sweet Friend Debbie came to visit and said she'd be happy to meet Randall at my storage unit and have him fill up her van with boxes from my storage unit. Thanks to both of them. This old grungy pair of garden shoes was in one of the boxes. Why I kept them and paid to store them I couldn't fathom. They were so nasty I put them in the washing machine, though I know you're not suppose to do that. Check out the last picture HEART watermark I found when I took them out of the washing machine. Now I know why they were meant to be saved. They were waiting for a new life. Here's their new life at a time when I needed a "special project".

Bowling ball fascination
Did a little mosaic on my aunt's water bowl for her birds. The blue tiles made it pop and I think the birds liked it too. Plus they could hold onto the sides with the little pebbles I put there. She enjoyed it and I enjoyed making it for her.
Back to cement?
Six large concrete cement leaves took me an entire summer to make. I let them sit outside through 3 more summers and winters. Only one didn't crack, this one. I painted it and put a thousand teeny tiny little pieces of safety glass. So glad I kept it, I really like it. Thinking about cement again.
Someone said I was delusional. I nearly fell off my unicorn.
