Good grief, December, where have you vanished to?!

Here is me, trying to be festive (I was more than a little bit tipsy at this point)…

I am powering through all the leftover bits and pieces at the day job, in the hope I can leave early – we went for a lovely team pub lunch, but no one else has come back yet so I’m all on my lonesome. On the plus side, I intend to leave the moment I’ve wrapped up all the loose ends!

Then home to finish this handsome chap for my Gran, pack, and curl up with wine and a DVD, and my laptop.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!!

Why I shouldn’t be left alone on a quiet evening (or, transforming shoes with Mod Podge)

I made these back in March, but realised when I was trying to show a friend that they don’t feature on this blog – I think I posted them on my old Blogspot version.

They just sort of happened, on a coldish evening with nothing much to do, I decided I’d have a shot at making one of my favourite pairs of shoes wearable again (the heels were so scratched and dented I couldn’t wear them to work any more).

Two of the great loves of my life - shoes and books :)

Because they just happened, rather than being planned, I forgot to take a ‘before’ picture. But in the months I’ve been wearing them I’ve had such a good response that I’ve started prepping two more pairs for customising, and will be adding a shoe-customising workshop to my plans for 2012 :D
