stumbling over what to say

Ooops. Apparently gold pencil does not look anything like it should when you scan it.

I've had a kind of impromptu holiday that has involved a huge amount of walking. Walking in unsuitable shoes. It seems, I, without fail, always wear totally unsuitable shoes for every occasion. Over my weekend break this has included wearing the tiniest little ballet pumps, with an ever increasing hole in the sole, for eight hours around a theme park in the rain and a pair of mini kitten heels around a cobbled street village.

Ouch! I feel for your toes.

Today the pouring rain made the dye run on the trim of my shoes - tonight my toes are a most beautiful shade of blue.

I understand you!
I usually wear the wrong shoes too, and the wrong outfit. Too heavy when it's warm, too light when it's cold.

Awesome drawing!

Ouchie! Poor toes.
These ballerinas do look awesome though. REALLY literally awesome. In fact, I had to click the picture and zoom in to check if the flours are drawn/crosshatched or not. If you had told me it's a collage with some flowery fabric I would have believed you without questioning. The flowers look like real embroidery. Wow.

Also: Many many thanks for your zines (and the lovely note inside)! I got them today and I just can't stop looking at them. You "hope I like them"?? That's one big fat understatement - I'm madly in love with them, really! <3 You are amazing!

I meant "floWERs" NOT "flours", of course... x___x

I seem to have the same problem. I once hiked up a mountain wearing flip flops. Epic fail.

Beautiful, of course. The stitched flowers on the shoes are amazing. You know, I am still so hung up on the last two posts that I find myself doodling shoes in cross-hatched pen at work! Does not seem to have sunk in though...

Cheers, folks.

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who wears totally unsuitable footwear. Roadchick, how happy to hear about your epic fail. I once wore a pair of Chelsea boots to climb a Rocky mountain. It's so true. It was one of the worse days of my life.

And, it doesn't stop there. Irene, I too seem to wear the wrong outfits. Always too hot or cold.

E*phi, thank you for the lovely words and I am most pleased you liked my little zines.

G, you know metoo well. It's spooky. I LOOOOOOVVVVE those shoes All of them. I want them all!

Cheers, my dears. I love you all.

I try to limit my inappropriate shoe-wearing, but that doesn't always happen. But I've never worn ballerinas to an amusement park. Actually I have very rarely ever been to an amusement park . . .
But such a wonderful drawing of those wonderfully inapparopriate shoes!!

What amazing art, beautiful. I am impressed at your abilities. The shoes are quite amazing, the cork as well. Some talent just goes beyound the ordinary.
