Prior to going to England I worked on a project for Hochanda and want to share it here…….mixed media hand painted shoes.  I scoured Pinterest for ideas and saw tons and painted these.

Here are some of the steps along the way…

The great thing is the shoes only cost $12.  I used DecoArt SoSoft paints which are meant for fabric and stay soft!  They are opaque and washable!

It was great fun to have them on Hochanda in the UK!

Happy to say this is one of my new classes and I will be at Pamo Valley Winery on Sept 3rd teaching.  Click HERE for details!

More shoes and designs to come!

Let this be your reminder to let all the small annoyances go.  Move through your day consciously.  Make an effort to notice at least one insignificant little frustration that you would normally get frustrated about.  Then do yourself a favor and simply let it go.  Experience, in this little way, the freedom of being in control of the way you feel.  And realize that you can extend this same level of control to every situation you encounter in life.  At almost any given moment, the way you feel is the way you choose to feel, and the way you react is the way you choose to react.  When you think better, you live better. And life gets happier.”
