I have yet to try this one… what a great way to give a new life to the flipflops hanging around at home.
Want to have your own pair of these amazing sneaker Creepers?
Flat Lace ups shoes- Could be Vans, Converse or high tops –High Tops provide more support for your ankles) ,
Three pairs of rubber thongs, give or take depending on how high you would like your creepers. You may find that you will need a larger size of thongs than what would you normally wear.
Shoe glue – I used 2 tubes.
Large serrated knife
Ink pen or pencil
Plasti-Dip liquid rubber paint
Sponge paint brush
Rubber Gloves- So you dont get glue all over your hands
Step 1: Clean the Shoes
Ensure that before you start making the shoes that they are thoroughly cleaned, Use Mentholated Spirits or nail polish remover to do so. (It’s essential to make sure everything is clean as dirt and moisture prevent glue from making a secure bond.)
I stabbed myself while working on this beaded medallion…
PROCRASTI-MOMENT: I tried to use the blood to add color to a drawing I did, but there wasn’t enough. I wish I bled a bit more because I was SO ready to start ‘finger painting’. Curious? Check out this Blood Drawing.
What do you think of my Rosette Medallion? I am in a beading circle with Trent University’s First Peoples House of Learning and I have never done this before. I MADE SOME MISTAKES, I KNOW – but I am not a perfectionist.
Beading is very relaxing and meditative once you get into the groove + picking beads up with the needle is fun!
This hands-on program allows students and participants to get involved in community outreach action by getting out there and DOING something! Yellow Fish Road™ uses a PowerPoint presentation, an in-class demonstration and an interactive aspect to help students understand how our storm drains are directly linked to local water bodies without any purification/treatment.
i.e. everything we dump in storm drains goes directly into our water systems!
After students are educated, they can mark local storm drains with yellow fish and share educational pamphlets to homes in the area, helping educate others about storm water pollution.
* – The program runs from April-October and can be used in schools (grades 2-12), corporate and special interest groups or guides/scouts.
justnow a halo hugs the moon, and the earth hugs the moon to her side
the mountains hug the mesas holding them close to the river
while the mesa hugs the valley close about the town
and the deer who can’t hug, touch muzzles
chickadees hug plum treebranches between their tiny feet
as you will hug me when I open the door
of all the ways to hold close, I treasure this four-armed hug
but when you go, and hugs turn into waves, we need not feel alone
the moonk [.]nows [T]thatthe Earth will hold her forever in their turning
so, hold this aware [,] ness in your heart
we are always in the middle of a hug
This is what In the Middle of a Hug became after I remove what I erased. For my youngest cousin:
Just a hug, and the earth hugs her back.
That Earth forever aware,
always in the middle of a hug.
