Here is something fun, for a good cause.
Art Shoes! I made these for the "Kick Off Your Heels" fundraiser. The goal is to raise $5,000 for The Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California -
because they not only treat women, but also educate and do major research for
this disease with women. Did you know that more women die from cardiovascular disease each year than from all cancers combined? I didn't know that. Now I do.
Ironically, the week this challenge was announced my heart was "going
nuts"—beating wildly, erratically and skipping beats. It terrified me,
since I have never had any heart problem of any kind. A battery of tests
showed that my problem was not dangerous and can be easily controlled
with medication, but it was a wake-up call to pay attention to my health
and my heart. So I am stepping out with my heart on my heels,
exercising and eating healthy.
My entry is called "I'm wearing my heart on my heels." Go to the Kick Off Your Heels web site to see all the shoes that will be auctioned online, starting tomorrow! The artists have really "stepped up" to this challenge! You will see that mine are conservative, compared with some of the entries.
Here are a couple more views of my shoes:
By the way, these are actually wearable and size 5.5.
