Yee Haww!

Time for me to mosey on down to Waxahachie & have a boot-scooting good time w/ the rest of the paper cowgirls. I am sooo excited!

I typically don't get excited about these events until I am done w/ all that I need to do. And since I am typically a procrastinator & am working right down to the wire, I don't have time for much excitement to be built up. But I've been done w/ Paper Cowgirl preparations since last Saturday & I am about to explode w/ excitement. I didn't think Thursday was ever gonna get here!

Would you believe these boots used to be red, black & white? I bought them @ a garage sale last year for a dollar. I'm not a red, black & white kind of gal but they were only a dollar! I thought that maybe I'd do something w/ them & if not, I was only out a buck. ;) After seeing some altered shoes in a Somerset publication, I got the idea to paint them (using fabric paints so they'd flex). But they looked really artificial so I hit them over & over again w/ brown shoe polish...wiping it off & letting it settle into the cracks & creases, making them appear to be old leather. Then I stuck some glittery letters on them & added rhinestone anklets & now they're "cowgirl chic"! (cross your fingers for me that the paint doesn't scuff off but I've brought a spare pair, just in case)

And isn't the purse cute? I made it last year for Paper Cowgirl. I think it used to be an old 45 record case. How many of you are old enough to remember them? I am! *blushes*

I'll be back tomorrow w/ swap pictures...come see!
