My Own Personal Water a shoe

Stiletto heels are a ride all unto themselves!  So naturally I had to make one into an amusement park shoe.  This shoe is called Water Park Shoe.  Generic, I know, but I'd rather be safe than risk a trademark infraction.

School House Altered Shoe

This School House Rocks!

Way back in the spring I had a friend ask me to create something special for a friend of his.  His friend is a retired school teacher who loves shoes.

Well, maybe just two.  I have finally finished my Zombie Crypt Shoe and it's quite something.  I actually finished it and then decided to add one more creepy little fellow.  They were just so much fun to make.

Skeletons Not In The Closet

The Search For Skeletons

I've already started to prepare for the Halloween season.  My first project is a zombie boot.  I really wanted to have a skeleton or two hanging about, but I neglected to buy any last fall.  Bummer!  So I've been searching the local stores, thinking it shouldn't be that hard to find some leftover Halloween supplies.  So wrong.  I started with a party supply store.  I thought surely they would have some.  Nope.  Then I went to all the craft stores, again with no success.  Same
