My sister wanted me to paint some wooden spoons that she could use as garden markers. Though it hasn't become my next career direction, I think they came out really cute!
I was going to try for an old naturalist encyclopedia kind of look. Sort of. In the interest of them showing up bright and clear I mostly just painted them. They shall be varnished and then put to delicious use.
In other news, I eventually plan to open an Etsy site for my shoes. It's on my list, along with five hundred other things, to do!
