Did I turn into a rainbow?

Today has been fabulous. I took a final exam + a final practical. I performed well on both! So, when I left school, I decided to head to Gander Mtn for a bit of shopping... I was looking at water shoes for walking in creeks, etc. The ones I wanted were $99. I was prepared to spend that much, until I saw some kid's shoes on a rack. Basically the same thing, just way cheaper. I got these size 6, Keen sandals for $39!! ($60 cheaper than the adult counterparts):

Also, I have FINALLY decided to post pictures of the Patchwork Quilted Purse I made several weeks ago:

There are two pleats on each side to achieve the tapered look.

Here are a couple pictures of the inside. I made pockets for my cell phone and for lotion or whatever else. I also sectioned off a space for my water bottle. The clasp is magnetic.

AND here is a picture of me with the purse and new shoes. Maybe I went for the rainbow look because it is still so rainy out? Lots of optimism and happiness today!



  1. I love the purse and the shoes. I was just talking to someone the other day who buys kids shoes. What size "regular" non-kid shoe do you wear?
    We definitely need to get together to craft sometime. :)

  2. This is the first time I've ever thought to buy a kid shoe, so I don't know. I wear anywhere from 7.5 - 8.5 in woman's (usually 8.5). So I was super-surprised that a size SIX kid shoe fit!!
