Thank you! Actually, they sort of happened step by step. I did the painting and sponging, then I showed Destiny some other bows I was making for a different blog post and she remarked on how bows that go across the whole shoe are very "in" now. After doing the bows, I thought about submitting the shoes to Altered Couture and realized they'd need some PANACHE, so I dug out the crystals.

These are so cute and it's clear that you put a lot of thought into their design! Nice!

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!"
