MY DIY Shoes

















so the first thing I did before caring about a dress I was all about my shoes...so I saw on four weddings this girl bedazzle her own shoes in it was love at first site for me and I knew I wanted that...so I did was find a pair of shoes so I could do my own shoes...  I am completey finished and now I am on my other current DIY kick...which happens to be my own veil.  I did my own STD's I am planning on doing my own Invitations and bouquets....is anybody else a DIY crazy bride...sometime I feel like I am going overboard, like friends and family ask me if they can help with anything and I turn them down...even for little things like making calls in doing research, I just sometimes I feel it is easier to do things myself than give other people task.

    Uhh....that would be me!  It's about two weeks before the wedding and I'm still trying to add more DIY projects - and of course I don't have the time to do them all!  But DIY can become addictive!

    I'm loving those shoes!  I'm thinking about blinging out my shoes!  So, how long did it take you again??????? (stop! you don't have time for that!) ** my sensible side trying to speak to me**

    @missheaven- child, your boy got madd talent ma. those shoes are too fierce

    @jloveb- girl, you went hard on those shoes, they are too fierce. great job. I'm a DIY bride and I can't wait to actually get into the actual DO, of the DIY. I have multiple rough draft designs but today will be the first time I'll actually get to put my ideas into action. I plan on hitting up Hobbly Lobby, Hancock Fabrics and MAYBE walmart. Today I'm getting started on my dress, bangle and headband and I think I MIGHT get started on my jumping broom, not too sure yet but I have to do SOMETHING. If nothing else, seeing what you did with those shoes gave me motivation

    Wow I love those. I have DIY ideas but I know I don't have DIY skills I suck I can barely cut a straight line. He needs to work on OOT orders so once I find some shoes I can ship them to him and he can rock mine out too!

    I want to marry those shoes...I love those...


    it took me like a month but I would stop every now and then in between days and weeks...like when we had our engagement party.

    I use peel and stick rhinestones...whenever I was watching t.v. I was doing my shoes.
