A Full-Length Romantic Fantasy Comedy Play in Two Acts "A farce of modern mythological proportions. Dietz has created a little romp that could play anywhere. Very fun."- John Hayes, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Following "one of those nights," Daran Walters, perennial loser in the game of love, inexplicably finds himself back in the home of Mitzi Doherty, the "one that got away." Mitzi's family-her hardhearted mother, in particular-is none-too-pleased by the sudden reappearance of her ex-boyfriend after more than a year, as it curiously coincides with Mitzi's imminent nuptials. And, as if the situation wasn't awkward enough, Daran also begins seeing a mysterious and strangely alluring-not to mention mischievous-woman about the house named Val who may (or may not) be the fabled Goddess of Love! Is Daran dreaming? Hallucinating? Or could it be that he has actually been called to serve some higher purpose? The answers are surprising and the laughs are plentiful in this delightful romantic fantasy comedy of love, loss and letting go.

Forget your heart on your sleeve. Wear your passion on your shoes! Paint a quilt on them! On a whim, Annemart Berendse painted a quilt on her shoes to wear to the 2011 AQS quilt show in Paducah. She could barely move through the crowd because people kept stopping her to comment on her brightly colored 'patchwork' clogs. She shares her techniques for creating a quilt design and positioning it appropriately on any style of shoe. She explains various combinations of shoe material-leather, manmade leather, vinyl, and canvas-and markers-pens and paints. Her easy-to-follow directions guarantee foolproof results. In the 11 projects there are 7 different styles of shoes-something for everyone, from truly inexpensive to ultra chic. Her 'grocery lists' assure you'll have every supply needed on hand should you, too, be overcome by a shoe decorating whim. Stand out in any crowd with decorated shoes on your feet.
