I didn’t invent anything: shoes and paint; simple!

My mom made us dozens of them while growing up.  We had a basket of fabric paint in our house that my aunt Lucie bought me for my first communion; sounds boring, right?  But no, best first communion gift ever!

Well, fast-forwarding a few years later, now with two boys of my own, lets say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, since now I’m the one who paints shoes for my kids!

It started 2 years ago…  I had an old pair of TOMS laying around, we were going to Disney, so I decided to make Mickey and Minnie ears’ shoes!  They were a hit!!  Then last year,  I did four pairs of Minions shoes for the movie premiere, one pair for the boys, one for my mom and one for myself.

This year, we were going to Disneyland and I had a few ideas in mind for our trip!  Jojo got one, Liam and Logan each got one as well, and I made myself 2;  I’m the one who makes them after all!!!

I got my first official order a few weeks ago: a tiny pairs of Shopkins shoes.  Thanks Isabelle for being my first customer!  I had so much fun making these.  I just got my second order from a coworker.

So here’s a few pictures of the shoes I made this summer!

Need a pair?
