Mama’s got a new pair of shoes

Patrick and I are so slammed with orders right now it is not even funny. We seriously need to hire some help to keep up with everything. It’s difficult because I’m in the mood to create new things, but customer orders come first. Luckily, I had an opportunity to slip in a little sumpin’ sumpin’ the other day. I had to pose for a photo shoot for a new ad campaign I’m doing for Duncan Crafts and I needed some serious shoe help. But not any foot covers would do.

Recently I made some Crafty Chica collage paper and have been using it in my shrine making classes. So far, my students love it. I’m not sure if I will be selling it yet, or just keeping it to my own work. Meanwhile, I used it to funk up a pair of heels. I bought these shoes (when they were blank) at a thrift store last year. The smooth wood platform heels lured me in. I was going to woodburn them, but opted for tried and true decoupage and I’m glad I did. I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue to adhere to paper, and Tulip fabric paint for the band that goes across my foot. I’m going to cover them in a thick coat of varnish next.

Anyway, it felt so good to vary away from mass producing, even if for a couple hours. These are my Christmas shoes and I *heart* them!
