Take-A-Look Tuesday: Glitter Shoes and Link-Up

For those new to Take-A-Look Tuesday, I love to feature a project that a reader sends in - and these shoes are no exception - wow!  Thanks to Nicole for sending them in - here's her quick synapsis:

My daughter loves those sparkly dress shoes but they are horrible for school. We tried a Red pair once and it only lasted one day. We had to take them back because half the glitter fell off and it was white underneath, YUCK! Anyway, so far I've only been able to find pink sparkle tennis shoes, but they just didn't match w/ school uniforms (red, white, or blue). SO I found a pair of cute cheap red canvas shoes at walmart, bought some red sparkle acrylic paint (and added fabric medium), painted the shoes with it, and they turned out so cute! I'm thinking of doing a blue pair too. :D

NOW, on to my VERY FIRST link party - I'm so excited to see what everyone has to show off - I have no idea how many of you to expect: 2 or 200 - who knows!  I'll do a recap with some of favorites, so be sure to check back to see if you're featured.  Just like other parties:

  • Link to a Specific Post, not your whole blog (to do this, click on the title of the post you want to link and it will open on it's own page, then copy that url)

  • Grab my button below - you can post it on your post, on your sidebar, on a page of a list of link-ups, wherever as long as it's somewhere

  • Try to visit a few other people on the list - it's fun to support and encourage fellow craftiness

  • If you're new to link-ups and have questions let me know and I'll do my best to help

Aw, thanks Mandy for the post! I didn't even realize it was up lol! I've gotten so much buzz from these shoes that I will be adding them to Firefly Alley. They were just an experiment, apparently they turned out well. :) I did make the blue ones, next I'm making a pink pair and a purple pair. The blue ones turned out so awesome! Way better than I imagined. I'll be posting a pic soon on my facebook too.

I've never seen a link party! Very neat idea. I'm not sure I understand how it works though lol!

* Sorry had a misspelled word. Was very ugly!
