    Thanks! I love that bag, it is a Little Earth or Littlearth not sure which is the correct way they spell it. They are quite hard to find in the UK now, I got mine from a tradestand at an international horse trials but I haven't seen them about for a couple of years. It is made from two recycled number plates!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's shoe creations!

    Okay so no gemtac but i thought i would have a play with the pearls and my craft glue. Done the edge of both shoes took an hour and about 280 2mm pearls, i am going to do a pattern around the top a 10mm pearl surrounded by two rounds of 2mm clear gems. Think i will wait until my gemtac arrives tomorrow to do more.

    Looking good so far!

    I bought a pair of cheap shoes (for the second attempt) and they have arrived today, the extra gems I ordered haven't though so won't be doing that this weekend then!

    I love the flames too. I can't decide whether to sell these two pairs to fund my multi-spotted ones... I think I just about have enough gems to flame myself another pair afterwards if I did. Feeling quite poor so we will see if I can bear to part with them lol

    Damn it! A size too small for me unfortunately and I'm too old to get away with squashing my feet into shoes that are too small - I'm well aware of the problems it can cause now.

    Ha ha those are certainly different! I suppose if you are wearing a dress with a full skirt which hides them then at least you'll have comfy feet all day :lol:

    Haha! Something like that would have been good for my snowy walk down the mountain! Am I the only person who thinks that Ugg boots are Ugg-ly? (Sorry)
