Mockups Creative Fun! R and G

Hey Neighbors!

Here is some fun you can have with your child/children!  We received 2 pair of Mockups ($24.99 each).  You might ask,"What are Mockups?"  Let me tell you!  Mockups are a 3D canvas shoe, approx. 6 1/2 - 7 inches long and they look like shoes.  You can paint, marker, draw, glue, and decorate them any way you would like.  We thought it was sort of neat that they came in a shoebox!



My daughters sat down and used markers on the first pair.  They used water based markers so they could wipe them off and start over.  Do you have a little designer in your home?  Get them a pair of Mockups to design.  Or perhaps you have a slightly older child that would like to design their own pair of shoes.  Check out Mockups!

Do you homeschool?  There are actual Lesson Plans available on the site.  You can just have fun, or turn designing your own pair of Mockups into a lesson.  There are two lessons available designed for grades 5-12.  Each lesson can be downloaded and takes an estimated time of 3 hours.



You will be able to access their design tips.  Advice on using paints, markers, collage and even cutting!  Then when you are all done you can upload a picture of your design and share it with others!  Who knows, maybe other people will like your design and share it too!



A little about the Mockups Story:
Mockups are labor of love over three years in the making. They were designed, developed, and financed by Louie Gong of Eighth Generation, one of the nation’s most successful custom shoe artists. Louie is a Native of mixed heritage (Nooksack, Squamish, Chinese, French, Scottish) who was raised by his grandparents, father, and stepmom in Ruskin, B.C. and in the Nooksack tribal community. Growing up in a home with no running water, Louie’s background serves as a stark contrast to his current success.




Be sure to look at the pics of the shoes we designed here.  We are going to clean ours and re-use them!  Take a minute to like the Mockups Facebook page and then follow them on Twitter!  You can see some of the shoes people have designed here on their artwork page.  If you would like a pair of Mockups you can order them directly from their site.

One neighbor will receive one pair of Mockups!  If you win, we would LOVE to share your design her At the Fence!

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive Mockups for review purposes.  All quotes in red are taken from the sponsor's website or email.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.

This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
