The Love Grace Handbag Appeal as posted on the TV3 The project FaceBook page.

Angela Neighbourly Lead from Te Aroha

Here is my post on The project FaceBook page for those who not see it on there. Angela Thompson
Not only does this appeal bring in the love and respect for the memory of Grace and her family, but it is bringing awareness to so many people, it is showing the love for each other and support in so many ways, and here in Te Aroha under The Mountain of love the 'Love Grace Handbag Appeal' has begun and today, 22nd February is a time also called 'Thinking Day" for the Girl Guide movement, when we think not of ourselves but girls and boys all over the world, what better time for us all to be aware of others no matter what age and what culture and to be part of this 'on going appeal' not just a memorial but a chain of love.

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Matamata

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
