The Romans believed that an artist's inspiration came from a spirit, called a genius, that lived in the walls of the artist's home. In her second book, Sierra DeMulder examines her childhood in a small town, heartache, loss, and the possibility of transcending suffering, aided by the voice of her own genius. His character appears throughout the book, providing charming commentary and biting insight on the young author's creative process and emotional path.
Forget your heart on your sleeve. Wear your passion on your shoes! Paint a quilt on them! On a whim, Annemart Berendse painted a quilt on her shoes to wear to the 2011 AQS quilt show in Paducah. She could barely move through the crowd because people kept stopping her to comment on her brightly colored 'patchwork' clogs. She shares her techniques for creating a quilt design and positioning it appropriately on any style of shoe. She explains various combinations of shoe material-leather, manmade leather, vinyl, and canvas-and markers-pens and paints. Her easy-to-follow directions guarantee foolproof results. In the 11 projects there are 7 different styles of shoes-something for everyone, from truly inexpensive to ultra chic. Her 'grocery lists' assure you'll have every supply needed on hand should you, too, be overcome by a shoe decorating whim. Stand out in any crowd with decorated shoes on your feet.
It's been said that one can never too rich or too thin, but the truth for more women is really that one can never ever have too many pairs of shoes.
