My first time hand painting canvas shoes…

A loooong time ago (I’m embarrassed to say how long!) my niece Sarah bought some plain white canvas shoes for the sole purpose of having me paint them for her…

So much happened in our personal lives over the past year that Sarah’s poor shoes were put on my to-do list…my “I’ll do them as soon as I can!” list.

That list can get very long. But I’m happy to say I FINALLY delivered Sarah her finished shoes a couple of months ago and thought I’d share them…
