Pimp Your Uggs

I love the comfortable look of Ugg boots but they are so not in our budget. So when I happened upon these Fuggs (Fake + Uggs = Fuggs) for $1 at a rummage sale, I snapped them right up. Now I was born with the wide calves of my peasant Polish foremothers , so they didn't fit quite right. Here's how I fixed them up-

Step One-
I removed most of the beaded snowflakes
off the front of the boots.

Step Two-
I cut along the inside seam
and hand sewed a fabric
insert to each side.

Step Three-
I diluted acrylic paint with a little
water and gave them a couple coats.
It takes about a day to dry completely.

I'm still thinking I might add some more
color- stripes or maybe swirls. But for
now I like them fine the way they are.

This weekend

It felt like Spring at the Jersey shore this weekend.
Time to go to the beach.
I'll be uploading a bunch of pics of seagulls
to my flickr tomorrow.

Snow and sand.

Bowling, Hawaii and cupcakes......

A little catch up- some pics taken during my little blogging hiatus.

While Tim was in Hawaii, my sister Tracy
invited the boys and I to dinner at her
place. I brought dessert.
Dog, owl and flower cupcakes.

The day after Tim came home we had a Geography
Day at Homeschool 4H. Of course we picked Hawaii.
Tim brought home dried mango, Hawaiian bread, guava jelly.
