So I've always loved shoes...like really loved them. Like I own a couple hundred pair loved them...
Wait! I gave 40 pair away this past spring...so I'm down to a normal number now.
The "funny" thing is...I have all of those great shoes and wear the same pair of leather flip flops everyday.
Anyone know the name of a good therapist?
I really feel that shoes can be so fun. I love wearing funky, bright, loud, crazy shoes. I figure why not? I dress pretty conservatively so my shoes can be nutty right?
I recently started creating my own shoe creations. I was getting annoyed that the funky shoes I wanted to wear were all designer (aka crazy expensive) and I couldn't buy them. So I decided to make my own.
The results have been...mixed...but getting better! And it's really fun. I've only glued my fingers together twice...
Oh, back to the breakthrough.
Someone thought a pair of shoes I made were "a bit much". And she was totally right, they have some serious muchness. I really doubt anyone else would wear them...
But as I was thinking about it and wondering how I could change them...I realized that I didn't want to change them. I loved them, so it doesn't matter if no one on this entire planet ever likes them. I like them.
So that was my breakthrough. I make weird shoes...and wear them in public. And it doesn't bother me.
And if you like them...Sweet! I'll make you a pair!...and if you don't well that's just fine too. Not everyone can be as crazy as me :-)
You just have to be careful about being seen with me in public :-)
