You're right, Lenore. In a way, it's like a giant message from the universe reminding me of what really matters in life and what doesn't.


Yikes, Margot! I can believe you were disoriented for a few days after that. It's only money, you know (even if you don't quite have enough). LOVE the shoes!


Hi, Leilani. Thanks for your comforting words. And you asked a good question. What I usually do is spray the finished shoes with a stain- and water-repellent, like ScotchGard. I use their outdoor formula for extra protection.


Margot! How absolutely frightening for both of you. So glad that only the car got hurt. Expensive? Yes. But, cars can be replaced.

Love the shoes! Curious though--have you done a protective coating on fabric covered shoes?

As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
