My friend, Abel Bazan, makes the most stunningly beautiful, full sized paper shoes. He is moving from Portland, Oregon today to work in Milan as a shoe designer for a couple of lucky companies there, a most exciting adventure!
While these particular lovelies are spoken for, he still has many other wonderfully stylish shoes available at a special sale price at the Beet Gallery in Portland (http://www.beetgallery.com/artists/a_bazan/a_bazan.html).
And I am heading up to the Madrona knitting retreat in Tacoma, Washington, to teach Jazzknitting this weekend (http://www.madronafiberarts.com). Look for a special double post next week when I get back!
