DWe have been completely flooded with incredible creations via email lately! It's been lovely to see everything everyone is doing. I know there have been a score of these types of blogs lately, but it is really important to what we do. We empower your creativity. You. CAN. Do. This! There are lots of ladies (and a few gentleman) creating successful, beautiful, unique designs out there. I'm going to share some with you now.

Maddy

These sneakers were created by a Sassy fan's 10-year-old granddaughter, Maddy. Talk about a natural! Maddy used Royal Purple Glitter It! on the toes, and painted the rest of the shoe Pearl Magenta, Pearl Turquoise, and Citrine. Maddy, the double laces are a great touch!

Beth R

Beth R. needed a new pair of shoes to match the bag she planned on carrying at a friend's wedding. She couldn't find exactly what she wanted, so she painted this pair of slingback heels Pearl Magenta. Once the paint dried, Beth used The Ultimate to glue on the lace.

What do you do when you have five girlfriends coming over for a weekend of horseback riding? Decorate a custom pair of boots for each of them, of course! And that's what Cindy F. did. She painted and glittered each one in a unique way. Plus, she added some very cool ankle accessories to each!

Dana's shoes

These sweet little flats come to us from Judi S.'s granddaughter Dana. Dana is already a veteran artisan of DIY shoes — at nine years old. For her earlier designs, click here

Donita

Pointy toe flats are IN this season. Donita did a very clever thing with her pair, something I've never discussed before. She painted an undercoat of Pearl Magenta, BEFORE applying the Grape. This will give the shoes a bit of a pinkish undertone. The Ultimate will keep the sequined fabric covering the toes in place. And, a couple of quick stitches with a leather needle and smoke-colored Fireline will hold the bow fast to the shoe.

Our Sassy Feet store stocks a product called the Lumiere Exciter Pack. Inside you get nine small bottles of Lumiere paint to play with: Sunset Gold, Pewter, Metallic Russet, Pearl Magenta, Pearl Emerald, Pearl Turquoise, Halo Violet Gold, Halo Blue Gold, and Halo Pink Gold. If used on its own, each bottle will paint a pair of shoes, but they can also be painted together to create collage effects, as Mary P. did on these cowboy boots — with a fantastic effect.

Sandy D. was in a bind and needed something to wear to a wedding, like yesterday. She grabbed a pair of comfortable black Mary Janes and painted them using Grape, Burgundy, Pearl Violet, Pearl Magenta, and Citrine.  Then, she added a layer of glitter over top. Last, she found some iron-on flowers, painted them in matching colors and glued them in place. She says this last-minute design isn't her best work, but we think it's cool!

TAMMY front after

The last make over — well, actually, make UNDER — today is a very simple one. Tammy painted five pairs of orange Converse hightops with Metallic Silver for her husband, herself, and three friends (!) so they can go as spacemen and spacegirls to their local (Key West, FL) "Fantasy Fest" parade.  She's still on the lookout for a pair of boots similar to the ones we did for Costume College 2012 for herself. Tammy, send us photos of your gang in costume, PLEASE! I'm dying to see how you guys look!

Some of you sent photos of more than one pair of shoes, but since there were so many to share, I had to pick just one this time. I'll get carpal tunnel from typing this same line, but…. Please send us your pictures! Keep 'em coming! We really love it.
