    Tara, I think those shoes turned out beautiful. You did a great job. Sometimes, when fighting with projects, you can’t see how great they are until a few days has passed…glad to see this was the case here. I hope your blister is gone 🙂

      Oh thank you, Amy! I can see all of the faults in the shoes, but I think it’s because I spent so much time wrestling with them! The blister has subsided, though now it’s a bit of a callous on my thumb. It’s a reminder, I think. I shouldn’t be cocky! (Especially with a glue gun!)

    When I hear the word glitter, i think of the quote “glitter is the herpes of arts and crafts. it is impossible to get rid of.”

    But those shoes are completely precious. Totally worth finding random glitter flecks in your carpet all year long! Also… side note, my mom is an elementary school teacher. So of course she was always having to do crafts with glitter each holiday. She would NEVER allow us to use glitter at home. I was always heartbroken. Now I’m a grown up and I can do what I want! And that means CRAFTS WITH GLITTER!

      You’re so right – glitter IS trouble. I know that I’ll be sweeping glitter and finding it in corners for weeks!

      That’s too funny that your mom prohibited glitter-usage at home! You definitely need to make up for those years of glitter depirvation! Glitter crafts forever! (In your house, though… we’re taking a little break right now).

      (Oh, and thanks for the shoe-love. They need a little bit of limelight after getting booted from the contest. Poor babies. )

    You can never judge a project until you see it through to completion… and these look gorgeous! I recently had a bad incident with my summer wreath… it did end up being completely deconstructed and redone so perhaps I should have quit when I wasn’t sure about how it was turning out. But in this case (and most) it was definitely worth persevering. They are so adorable:)

      Oh, thank you, Krista! You’re so right that you have to keep on going with the project – though I had my doubts so many times with these shoes.

    So cute! I do not know one little girl in my life right now! We seem to be inundated with boys!

      And we are the opposite. We have a majority of girls in our life (though there are a few boys lurking around). 🙂

      I guess it is harder to Mod Podge and glitter up an old pair of DC runners, isn’t it? Still… could be worth a try! 🙂

      That is so true, Letitia! My hands are becoming scarred messes due to run-ins with that glue gun!

      And thank you – Lila really loves the shoes, too!

    I am glad that I know you as well as I think I do, I knew these were your creation, and I voted for them… sorry to hear they didn’t make it, I think they are awesome!

      I’m so glad that you figured out it was me! Yeah, I was a teensy bit bummed that they didn’t get through, but Lila is so thrilled with her party shoes that it really doesn’t matter! 🙂
