Shoe Bling - Possibly Vision Gone Wrong ...
I decided when I started this blog it wasn't going to be about lots of pretty perfect success stories. This story is about a vision gone wrong (but regardless I am still a little bit in love).
I saw these on Pinterest a while back, tutorial link for is here, and had to have some.
The thought of making and owning these consumed me until I brought a pair of cheap white shoes from The Warehouse for $7. I was on my way.
Problem was, when I started to make them, I decided maybe I had bad vision in my choice of glitter colour, and then lost all interest in them.
I had to finish them, but because of lack of interest, I completed them without care. And then when I had finished them, because I wasn't careful, I disliked them even more.
So they sat in the corner for a month. The husband walked past and laughed at their fate every once in a while and vowed to disown me if I tried to wear them in public with him.
And when I got them out today to blog about them, and they sparkled in the sun, I fell just a little bit in love with them. A little bit. If I find the energy I might tidy up the gems a bit on them (translate to actually glue them on properly and evenly, and fill in the gaps) and wear them out with the kids for some fun. Maybe.
