Mini Art Journal Journey - Week Seven

2.20.2007


This week's prompt was: Shoes - there's always a story...was a bit panicked initially because I'm not one that has loads of shoes, basically I have my blue Airwalks, my Dr. Scholl's for work and my thrift shop boots! But then I got to thinking about my favorite all time shoe and remembered my best friend's boots! My friend Joleen (who was my room-mate at the time) had a pair of brown leather boots, brand new which she never wore, (or later as it turned out maybe never got the chance to wear! ). Whenever we would go out, I or one of our other girlfriends would always ask to borrow them...I think that it would be safe to say that at least three or four girls wore those one pair of boots regularly and it wasn't Joleen! Finally, once broken in...the perfect hippie, nature-girl, earth loven' pair of boots were taken back by Joleen...she was staking claim to her boots! Nobody else got to wear them anymore and then not too long after this "new" rule I think the heel busted on one of them! Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly, Jo - you can help me out here, but I do think that others got more wear out of those perfect boots than you did! And it's funny too because every time that I've looked for boots since, Joleen's have been the standard on which I judge by! So, yes...I guess I do have a "shoe story" after all!

That was so fun reading about your friend's boots. It's almost a sisterhood of the traveling boots story! Your watercolor boot and boarder are perfect! I'm very proud. :) Your entire card looks great. Good job.

Oops. Just realized I spelled "border" wrong in my last comment. Sorry. Brain fart I guess.
