Remember the teaser picture from facebook I sent out last night?
What sweet memories.
Let's start out with the good.
Started my day by taking a quick run to Hobby Lobby, which always puts me in a great mood. Still not exactly sure what I was going to do, and knowing I had everything I could possibly need at home, except little pearls...which I found in the bridal section for seventy-five cents.
So as I was staring at the shoe with the pearls in hand...I had no idea what to do. I knew that I needed a strap for these beauties...so, I decided a pearl strap would look great...it would look like little ankle bracelets. Great idea until I realized that I had no idea what size strap I would need. So I got out my night vision goggles, and sneaked into Maddies room.
And yes, that is a very large, sharp needle by her foot. Remember it was after 11pm.
The pearl strap looked and worked great. I used elastic thread so that it would be an easy on and off.
So now onto the flowers.
I was pleased. Not overly impressed, but at least pleased. So when Moo woke up in the morning I had her model the one shoe I created...
I was so excited! I was going to finish my blog post, and I was going to look so crafty.
I started my project again about 11pm tonight...gathered some more supplies, this time I was going to take pictures, and it was going to be so pretty...
Then bad things started to happen. I was not liking my flowers. They didn't look even too me. They started to look odd. I still decided to hot glue them on. I needed to finish. I had to finish. I had to POST my beautiful Pinterest inspired shoes!!! Before I could even take a picture of the final product...I tore them off. They were not right. When I bought these shoes I knew that there where some small holes from the staples that the smart people at the thrift store used to attach the price, but I thought I could cover them up, with the flower. I kinda did.
That plastic flower embellishment on the shoe...I again thought I could cover it up nicely...I sorta did. But because of all the covering I had to do, I made these flowers too big. And so now...we have the ugly...
But that's okay...tomorrow is a new day, I have another thing of bridal pearls, and I have an entirely new idea...
