Get your sparkle on!

Monday, June 25, 2012

 While we were waiting for our ombre clothes to dry last week, Maris decided that she wanted to sparkle her tootsies {because we couldn't possibly have just one craft going at a time...} She got a white pair of cheap tennis shoes at Wal-Mart {or you could use a faux Tom like we did in our Schumacher Dragon shoes}. She decided to use pearl, silver and pink glitter.

She mixed the glue and the glitter in a bowl and with a paint brush, painted it on in sections. It's hard to see, but the heel is done in a pearl glitter.  

After it was dry, I used a Sharpie to chevron the tongue {can we now use chevron as a verb?!} 

Then the shoes got many coats of Mod Podge spray. This was to make sure the glitter stayed on the shoes and not all over the house. 


This was about 80% effective.


Those glittered kicks drove off yesterday.

Along with several others from her youth group, they all headed to 'Passport 2012'.

They will meet with the youth of many other churches of different denominations across the country for a week of mission work in Washington.

Did you read that--'Come have real conversations, not just virtual ones.'  So important for our kids, don't you think?! They will study the Bible in the mornings and provide hands-on assistance for folks in the afternoons. Please pray for these kids and the impact that they will have as they extend grace to others.
