Boot Scootin’

This boot is definitely scootin’ right along.  These old muscles after a while remembered holding that pencil for hours at a time.  Slowly, very slowly the puzzle pieces accumulated and that is when I found myself becoming very excited.  The overall effect of the boot filling up with puzzle pieces was a bonus I hadn’t anticipated.  The blue had to go though.  I decided that an over all black and cream theme would make the puzzle pieces speak for themselves.  I really wanted the eye to be drawn to the puzzle pieces themselves.

puzzleboot3The black looked fantastic!  Above the puzzle pieces, not so much.  Too dark and heavy.  The slate gray was perfect, neutral enough with less weight.  Much more balanced and easy on the eye.  Just as I had hoped for, you see the puzzle design first, then the boot.

puzzleboot4I am pleased as punch, as my grandma used to say!  This boot is mine and I can’t wait to fill it up with all the chrysanthemums that have started blooming in my yard.   Every time I see it a smile will definitely bloom from the fond memories I have of building jigsaw puzzles with my Grandma Cirner and my Mom.

Till next time…………. Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
