Flip flop sandals - $1
Bouquet of jeweled flowers - $6
Spool of ribbon in Gwen’s signature color - $3
The sandals were a pain in the butt. First I saw hot pink sandals but of course there were none in Gwen’s size. I settled for some royal blue ones but after choosing the flowers and ribbon I didn’t think it matched that well. So I switched to a pair of turquoise sandals. The next day I cut off the tags, put the sandals on her, and immediately saw that they did not fit.
I was frustrated. Heath knows how much I hate shopping and he could see how upset I was so he went back to the store for me. We discussed colors before he left. He called to say that there was not a single pair in her size. How about black in the next size up? Sure.
Flip flop sandals - $1.66 (the sandals were 66 cents when Heath went back)
Jeweled flowers - $6
Ribbon - $3
With pandora.com serenading my creativity and my hot glue gun burning my fingers, I turned plain flip flops into a work of art.
Sometimes I surprise myself with how cute I can make things!
Here’s the problem with the black sandals. They almost fit me! Who knew? Here’s the problem with my feet. They are dry and yucky because I never wear socks and I hardly ever wear shoes. That part I did know!
I looked at my extra supplies, shrugged, and decided to turn
How cute are those sandals? I love the toes on the soles but the ribbon and flowers make these sandals even cuter.
Baby feet in cute sandals – priceless
Knowing I saved myself $20 by not buying sandals at the What Women Want Expo that someone else decorated – priceless
And I know I would have bought them too small.
I forget that Gwen isn’t really a baby anymore. It all worked out. She now has two pair of pretty sandals to run around in.
The sandals match her outfit better now that they’re decorated. She dresses herself can you tell?
