Target + Paint + Scuffs

It's gross in Chicago today. 


Has anyone been to Target at 9 am on a Thursday? One word: babies. So many babies. Two year-olds running away from their moms...kind of hilarious and cute. 

I bought a huge canvas from Jo Ann Fabrics today. I'm not sure what I'm going to paint, but I'm excited. I have two weeks to do whatever I want and I think I'm going to do a lot of DIY creative stuff...hopefully I'll work out a lot, too.


I'm going to a wedding this weekend and I want to wear some yellow, round toe, patent leather pumps but they have some mysterious red scuffs on them. I bought some wax, leather protectant stuff but it apparently doesn't remove the scuffs. Anyone know how to remove scuffs from patent leather??

Off to look at some more apartments!

take a soft cloth and gently try to buff out the scuffs. You may have to scratch gently to get them off but it has always worked for me.

Yes! Use a little bit of non-whiting toothpaste on a dry wash cloth, and rub. Let sit for about a minute, and then wipe clean with a wet cloth.

I wish I was artistic like that! I would love to be able to buy a canvas and just paint something . . . unfortunately it would look more like craft time in my Mom's kindergarten class. :(

You'll have to show us the canvas when you are done! I don't really have any advice on the scuffs so I hope the other ideas work.
