Guest Designer Monday - Kimberly Pate

I have wonderful friends --- I'm feeling under the weather sew to speak and my wonderful friends are filling in the gap and showcasing how talented they are!!!!! Today, I have the very talented friend, Kimberly of KP Kre8tions. She is sew wonderfully talented, you need to go and check out her blog for other projects!!!! 

Today I am honored to be a guest designer for Her Craftiness. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and I wanted to make a sexy, shiny red high heeled candy holder.  I found a very helpful tutorial on line and set out to create.  I am a pearls and blue jeans kind of gal, so I added pearls to my candy shoe up the back seam, and around the toe. 

I am really beginning to step out of my comfort zone with my crafting, and while this design was not hard by any means, it is a far cry from the simplistic cards and layouts that I normally create.

There are a few things I will do differently when I make my next shoe, but really, isn’t that what crafting is all about? Learning from your mistakes and turning them around into improved projects? I am still learning how to use the glue gun so I do not make such a mess with my glue.  You can see a few traces of my mistakes on the shine of the shoe. 

I hope you like my shoe, I know I do, (even in its simplistic nature).  Thanks for stopping by today, and feel free to leave me comments.

Thanks Kimberly for being my fabulous Guest Designer --- I'm more of sweats or leggins type gal with over-sized shirts ... but I just may have to add a string of pearls to my ensemble now sew I be stylin'!!!!! Now, don't forget to stop on over and give Kimberly some bloggie love!!!!

God Bless you and Thank you for Stopping by
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust
