So.. It's been a long time. A reaaaaaaaally long time. Too long. Life just sort of gets in the way and blogging is hard to do when you're juggling a million billion other things and stressing out like a crazy person. Am I wrong here?
And once the stress piles up it's that much harder to do things that calm and soothe you so that you end up in a vicious cycle because you can't do the things that make you happy, no matter how simple they may be.
I hit a wall a few weeks ago and Maggie was kind enough to remind me to take some time for MYSELF and do something I enjoy- crafting.
So I took these shoes, and with a little modpodge, electrical tape, embossing powder, beeswax and a heat gun, I heat embossed and waterproofed these canvas shoes (http://lifehacker.com/5959735/waterproof-canvas-shoes-with-beeswax)
Yeah it kind of looks like I painted them... And probably would have been less effort if I did actually paint them... But it was an experiment and I know that the gold on my shoes won't peel or scratch off at least. And it made me happy to do this and get back into the swing of things.
Apologies if the formatting is a little strange, I'm blogging from my new phone. Apparently there is a blogger app for android now. There really is an app for everything!!
