Trying to Fly with Elphaba
By The Cake Therapist on July 10, 2012
Last October, I ran across some wonderful Steve Madden canvas espadrilles on clearance. I grabbed several pair for female family members and friends for Christmas gifts. I hand painted each pair and gave them a personality reflecting each receiver. I have always loved to draw and paint but never considered myself very good at it. Everyone did seem to love them and I had numerous crafting friends encouraging me to start a business so they could order a pair. I have had that in the back of my mind and recently decided to give it a try! Oh, what fun I have been having! So far, I have made my second pair of Wicked shoes, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh and friends, and some very sparkly wise owls. I made a Facebook page called RockinYourShoes if you would like to check them out or order a pair for yourself. !There are also two pair on their way to me and I can not wait to paint them! I think a Lilly Pulitzer print and a Dr. Suess Cat in the Hat pair! So, Elphaba was on my first pair and I am hoping to make this shoe business fly high or at least a little higher.
I am so looking forward to a little get away this week. My husband and I are headed to Nashville to see some friends! My friend and I met through a virtual group for pastor's wives and women in ministry! I can not express how emotionally cleansing it has been to connect on a level of understanding like I have been able to with her. Friendship truly is priceless and I am so thankful for her. I actually feel so blessed as God has given me several wonderful friendships....all of which I am sure to be talking about from time to time. Short blog for today and more later. I am finishing up some sweet cake pops that will also be making the trip!
