How to make your own shoe display

I searched all over the internet for someway to display my house slippers without paying alot, I found some but didn't want to pay what they wanted for shipping. So I went to Wal-Mart and bought a $2.50 roll of duct tape. And this is how to do it......

I took plastic wrap and covered my foot, then took strips of duct tape and covered my foot so every inch was covered, I then put several layers on. To get it off my foot, I took a pair of scissors and very very carefully cut down the back of the duct tape where my heal is. You don't have to cut below your heal, you just spread it apart and slide it off your foot. After it is off your foot just tape the split shut and put a kneehi on it and bam you have a foot to display your socks/shoe etc on. You can also paint it to smooth is down, I just chose not to.

I hope you enjoyed my idea and can use it.

In memory of Grayson

It has been way to long since I have been on here. My son and his wife had there baby 4 months premature, He lived 9 days and then passed away. He weighed 1 lb 3oz and was 11 1/2" long at time of birth.

I found out I am going to be a grandma from my other son and his wife. They are due in April 2010. I am so happy for them, and I hope they do well.

Well they also lost there baby a week after Grayson passed away. My heart goes out to them.
I was working on what I call a Hankie Blankie when Grayson died so they are done in memory of Grayson. I have put a picture of them on here, and I am selling them on my web site at.... plus I am making them and donating them to the hospital for the babies/kids there so they will have something to hold when there parents can't be there, or when they just need something extra to cuddle.

I will also be sewing small blankets and receiving blankets to take to the hospital.

They were so great with Grayson and all the little ones there and very caring with the parents/families as well.

This is some of my work, the blue and white pillows and the blue round ones, also the yellow and blue curtains.
Crafting is what I really enjoy doing, and to the right is some of the things I have made in the past 2 years, between remodling our home and working. I no longer work but stay just as busy as I did before I stopped working. ;) I will eventually have some crochet patterns and maybe some knitting patterns on here as well. The rainbow afghan you see on here is my all time favorite. I was given this pattern at a yard sale a couple years ago and last year won $25.oo worth of Lion Brand yarn or products from entering a contest on the website . It came out of an old Woman's day magazine, I don't have a clue which one because all she had was the 2 pages.
I have a web site at that I sell items on , but I haven't had time to put much on there recently. I also am hoping to put some items on there that doesn't cost very much so I will have a variety of prices to choose from. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them.
I hope you enjoy your time spent here so check back and maybe I will have something new up here, you never know. Have a great day.
