^ Cheesy A friend of mine said it reminded her of old school Nickelodeon game shows. I guess I was subliminally influenced by things I loved as a kid.
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / glitter monster shoe makeover (link to tutorial!) on: March 25, 2012 02:35:44 PM

I had an old pair of shoes I rarely wore, so I decided to make them AWESOME.

These are definitely more my style. I coated them in fine glitter, sealed them with polyurethane, and added some hand sewn felt appliques to the toes. Now I have something unique to wear to parties (or the the grocery store, whatever). I love them so much that I put together a tutorial on my blog. Check it out! http://alternamommy.blogspot.com/2012/03/tutorial-glitter-monster-shoe-makeover.html

This mini gallery is property of Lovething. No trespassing!  Tongue

I'm going to post a few of my favorite pictures here, but I'll post many more throughout the swap in my Flickr set!

Here's Mary Beth sending herself off. I mailed her last week so hopefully she'll be arriving at her destination today (fingers crossed)!

AMAZING!!!!!!   Smiley

How thick are your circles?  (Like, how many times do you fold a sheet of magazine paper?  I've been doing quartered-magazine size sheets folded three times for magazine bowls, but I feel like this will be too thick for the circles....)

Also, what did you use to make the center holes?  I'm looking to gauge the size of the space....  I just love your version soooo much!!!! 


I used 1/3 of a page for each circle (cut vertically) and instead of folding them, I used a pencil to roll them into tubes on the diagonal (place pencil at one corner and roll to the opposite corner) and then flattened them. This works much better than folding, in my opinion. The strips are less bulky and easier to work with. For the center holes I just wrapped the strips around the tip of my index finger.

I haven't made anything else from this book yet but I'm looking forward to making A LOT of projects in it. It's by far the best craft book I own.

So cute! And I think the wonky legs give him character.

Whenever I see one of your posts I know I'm in for a treat. You guys are hilarious. The pants rock, and is that a copy of When You are Engulfed in Flames I see in the staircase picture? Awesome.
