Thanks so much, Margot and Destiny! I'm delighted that you like my lens documenting my sandal transformation using your leather painting and embellishment techniques, and I'm thrilled that you wanted to share it with the rest of your fans.

I'm already busy thinking up ideas for my next fab footwear makeover, using more of the techniques from your wonderful book, "Sassy Feet"! Thanks for the great information and inspiration.

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!"
