AEDM ´12 Day #2 Talking about shoes

For Art Every Day Month I´ll show you my working table and my scrapbook page for Day#1.
Scrapbook page is On The Road by Yorkshirelass for UKScrapper´s 10th anniversary cybercrop.

This week we have had a look at our shoes. Some were fixed like Lisa´s boots and some were disposed of. Ginny has cleaned her closet and the only things left are those that she wears. Way to go Ginny! Enjoy the space and freedom.

Today I have an awesome guest: Vanina Cabai from the blog Ayloviú with a creative project with shoe trees. Not only creative but also generous. Vani and her students painted some beautiful pieces to be auctioned.

It all started with the shoe trees that were donated to the art class.
They prepared the pieces to be painted.
Some of the finished ones:




As Vani says in her blog: the pieces will be sold during the exhibit at the MAT (Museo de Arte Decorativo ~ Decorative Art Museum) in Tigre and the money will be for children in need. 

This will be done at La Usina del Bienestar from November 15th to November 18th during Expo Tigre. The painted shoe trees will be auctioned by Sergio Mazza for the Cooperadora Única de los Centros de Salud de Tigre (Tigre´s Health Center Cooperative)

Do you want to see pictures of the pieces being painted? Visit this post by La Usina. If you are planning your Christmas shopping it´s a wonderful opportunity to get some of these as presents while helping teh local kids. 

This is Vani´s next seminar flyer in case you are in teh neighbourhood. :)

You can find Vani in Facebook: Ayloviú and Twitter: Ayloviú.
Thanks for being my guest today Vani!

Hi Paula! here we are again sharing thoughts for Art Every Day Month. It does roll around quicker and quicker - but perhaps that's because I'm older and older!

These shoe trees are wonderful! All together they look quite magical! You certainly are busy in your creative space!

Well dog gone! I sold my shoe trees in a yard sale a couple years ago. See...I should never get rid of anything.

What fabulously decorated items. My Great Uncle was a master cobbler but unfortunately the family threw out all his 'work' stuff. The only thing my Dad managed to rescue was one of those iron shoe lasts that cobblers use when heeling footwear...Mum decorated it in the Canal Barge style.
