    If you missed number three in a separate post, go here

    Ok, so for all of you doubters, those who think YOU couldn't do this, here's the story:
    My daughter who never has painted in her life, came for dinner yesterday. She had asked a few weeks ago if I would TEACH her to paint with water or oils. I said sure. So yesterday, She traced and painted this shoe!!

    Really???? Now I'm impressed that your daughter did that w/o being an artist as you said.
    I think she is, Jeannie, just like her Mom- she just didn't know it! :D:D

    I would like a pattern for your shoes along with a tute.I'm sure there are others that would be willing to buy them. Just a thought.

    FABULOUS !! I'm waiting for the red one. I always loved red shoes but felt self concious when wearing them, so never did very much. I still love them. haha

    I tried to make my daughter feel proud by sharing your comments about her shoe...she said y'all probably thought she was 8, not 44!!So now you know the truth. My truth is, I don't care how old she is, she did a nice job!! eh??
    Went shopping at HL for some embellishments. also got a few new brushes. Some of mine are 30 years old!! going to work on shoe number five!
