A Girl Can Never Have Too Many Shoes!

Try telling my husband that....well, at least this one that I've created isn't sitting out in the hallway or taking up space on the shoe shelf in the basement. Right now over at P K Glitz, Inc., they are having a challenge to create your own shoe (pattern available and all). This was so much fun!! I've been wanting to create my own shoe for a long time now and this challenge gave me the perfect chance to do so. I've always wanted a pair of the lace-up dress-up (you know like a pair of ballet slippers do). So I created my own shoe that laces up. I used two pieces of 18 gauge floral wire and covered the wire by gluing ribbon on both sides of it. Then the tough part was shaping-- I just added some Becaon's 3-in-1 glue where the two pieces cross over to help hold it's shape! I just loved how it came out! Thanks Jamie for telling me about the challenge ;)



If you've ever wanted to make a shoe, you should definitely head over and check out this challenge--you hve until May 31st to enter!
