Good to hear from you! We live entirely too far apart! As to your clogs, why not email me a photo and I'll try to give you some guidance on what kind of paint will work. Hint: If they're made out of Crocs-type material, no paint will stick -- but you can collage over them and/or embellish them instead.

Looking good! I like how all the elements came together for a classy yet "blingy" look. I am now the owner of ugly plastic clogs that are so comfortable that I ignored their orange color. First candidates for art shoes! Don't know when I'll start but I'm refreshing my memory on supplies. I miss not seeing you Margot!

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
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!"
