So today i thought i would sort the state of my pictures out ha! It was about time i got some decent ones done to add to my website, facebook, twitter and so on. As all we ever get is rain it was a little hard trying to come up with a nice way of displaying my shoes. Today for the first time in a few weeks i walked home through the park and was actually shocked to see how many flowers had been planted there in a matter of weeks! oh and had also managed to stay nice rather than be destroyed by some divy.

The only shoes i had to hand were a pair of pink closed toes and purple, which was a shame but over the next few days i shall start making a few more pairs and take pictures before the flowers disappear :)

Im really pleased with how the pictures turned out, one thing that i found annoying was the fact that the pictures show the proper colour of the shoes and how bright they are perfectly but, definitely doesnt show how sparkly the crystals are so im hoping for some sun tomorrow to try again and if not the results of these arent too bad!! i dont think so anyway :)

Hiiii bloggers :) today well yesterday i got my oversized postcards and normal sized postcards delivered and i LOVE them :D

I decided that as many people dont know how to look after handmade items or shoes in general for that matter, i thought i would get some little postcard size cards made on how to care for the shoes. Making sure i put the right kind of info on the cards was quite hard actually, i didnt want to sound rude but i wanted to make it clear to those who didnt know walking on grass in heels for example = the heels sinking in the mud which then = mud stuck inbetween crystals. NOT a good look! :)

I have also been given lots of exciting opportunities recently lots of exciting stuff coming up cant wait :D looks like all my hard work is finally paying off woohooooo

Just thought i would write on here before going  to bed as im verrrry tired! today started off bad as i walked downstairs to find bags of crystals open every where all over the sofa and floor!!! my dog had got to the post and opend everything grrr i now remember why i have most things sent to a different address never mind ha, who would of thought a dog so small could create such disaster.

I have almost finished another order for someone this time they wanted pink crystals (have put picture above)
i really like these light pink crystals on a black shoe, its something i will do again when i make display shoes.

Im also waiting on a few things i ordered that i put in the box with the shoes, as i have a new logo and whole design i had to redo quite a few things cant wait to see how they turn out will post pics as soon as i get them :)

So today hasnt been that much of a great day. I came over all unwell in the middle of tescos =) ha nearly lost my dog who decided to run out my front door, and last but not least i dropped glue all over the floor! anywayyyy today i managed to get an order finished for someone needing a pair of shoes for their birthday, i think cant remember :) but the girl was very nice and the shoes turned out great.

She was after something a little lower than the other styles i have so together we came up with the picture above, these will now be for sale on my site for everyone else too.

I have also came up with some new exciting ideas that i cant wait to try out. Im forever trying to come up with new ideas to be different from everyone else doing something similar, i think i may have finally found something yay. I will be posting pictures as soon as it has been tried and tested. :D

Today i had my first day off in what seems like forever! but i took the time to start making a pair of shoes for myself. I currently decorate Converse anyway but i thought i would try something different.

I am in the middle of covering the whole shoe just like the heels, but instead on a flat shoe. I started doing this a few days a go but as its a very slow process i hadnt got very far as i had many orders to complete in time for peoples birthday presents and partys. The picture shows how far i have got at the moment.

I cant begin to imagine how long and how many crystals this is going to take me but im soo excited to finish and finally wear them.  

I also had my first order for a pair of shoes to be made for new years eve! it seems so far away when i think of it but realistically it isnt that far away at all. I get very busy around christmas time with all the partys that happen around decemeber so its nice to have an early order that doesnt have to be rushed to finish in time :)

So as im still working out how to use this i thought i best try and put something on here as i now have 3 followers, that have come from i dont know where yayy, 4 if i include the fact that i some how managed to follow myself :S

More to the point, i thought i would write a bit about the shoes i make and show the people who do read this my favourite one so far, which is in the picture above. These fully crystalised heels take the longest by far but are most deffinatly my fave covered in over 6000 crystals they sure do sparkle loads!

I made the bow optional as its very much to my taste, but not to everyones and not everyone wanting the shoes will have a pink outfit to wear them with :)

Pictures dont always do my work justice but i put a lot of time and effort into my shoes, making sure they are perfect in every way possible. This was my first time crystalising a whole shoe and im very pleased with the result :D
