Strassing My Shoes and The Crafty Blues

This past weekend I attended a Craft Bridal Fair at a local craft store. They had calligraphy lessons, bouquet arranging, centerpiece ideas, DIY favors and a lot of other fun DIY wedding ideas. I stuck around for a few of the demonstrations but the aisles of fun were just calling my name! So, as I slowly walked up and down every single aisle my mind started whirling. There were so many great ideas I came up with that I became dissapointed that I could only have one wedding.

With my cart full of craft items (only a few things actually for the wedding) I rounded the corner to go down my last aisle... the clearance aisle. Now, if you are anything like me the clearance aisle of a craft store is just a treasury of stuff that you don't need but have to have... after all it's on clearance - who knows if you will ever be able to find it again!?!?!

Well, ladies, I found the most wonderful, exciting items for my wedding... Christmas Ornaments! No, I am not having a Christmas Themed wedding but these babies were .25 each and FULL of possibilities. With enthusiasm I snatched every single one the had... and now? I have no idea what to do with them. *Sigh*

I guess over the next couple of months I will have to think about what in the world I can do with these. I am sure I will think of something!

NOW... My last post I talked about strassing shoes. During my trip I picked up hotfix rhinestones and started my journey of placing thousands of rhinestone on a pair of shoes. I worked on it for a couple hours last night and here is my progress so far:



It is a little frusterating getting all of the small rhinestones on the shoe but overall, its still kind of fun. Let's see how I feel in a few days!

But still, what in the world am I going to do with 20 large, silver Christmas ornaments?! I'm off to brainstorm......
