Wrapping up the Week...

Wrapping up the week with a few more accessories.

I'm going to put my favorite first, the ballet slipper, I love it! My daughter is a little ballerina, so I thought it would be nice to include some ballet items.
I also tried to make a Ugg boot. I followed a tutorial I found on line, it looked so easy, it took me forever!!!…and I still did not get it right. I will give it one more try, but not sure if I can do it. Remember the clog? Well my clog turned into a sandal. I have to paint the straps, but I'm okay with it. I would love to make a clog, but I have to rethink how to put it together

 I also spent a lot of time on books and artwork. The trailer will have a wall of shelves, so spent much of the week creating and painting book covers in Annie Sloan paints. I also want to include a collection of children's books. I was able to find lots of great covers on the web, but have to Photoshop them (work in progress). This trailer will include artwork by the masters. I Photoshop several and will decide what to add once I start decorating.

Lastly, I worked on a few boxes. I love vintage boxes, they are so "girly". Found a few on the web and also scored a wonderful Tylenol box.

I'm in love with the ballet slipper!
