Altered Flip Flops

I have a few finished projects to post so I'll be spacing them out a bit. That way maybe i'll actually post more frequently!

Last weekend was The Boy's birthday. It was finally sunny and warm so we headed out to the Farmer's market in Millarville and then out to Kananaskis to hang out by the Highwood River for the afternoon.

It was such a great day just hanging out, reading, watching The Dog dig up rocks in the river and "accidentally" get into the current and drift down stream. He would happily have stayed in the river as far as it would take him but we didn't think that was such a good idea.

The next day was just as beautiful so I spent most of it sitting out on my little patio reading and enjoying the sun. I decided to work on something I could do outside so I pulled out the $4 flip flops I had picked up and some scraps of fabric and made these:

The tutorial came from Alisa Burke. Mine didn't turn out as cool and random looking as the ones in the tutorial but I like them none the less. I think there will be more of these in my future.

So, that was last Sunday. We had a week of heavy rain and cool temps and then a sunny warm weekend again. I love when that happens. I finally got my plants and planted them (tomatoes, lettuce, peppers and some flowers -- i need to find some herbs and onions yet), so it is now officially Summer for me. (I guess since tomorrow is officially Summer on the calendar it's not just for me... hmm.)

I'll be back in a day or two with another finished project. oooh Anticipation!
