Craft Fail

Have you ever had a craft fail? Something that you thought,"OOOH, this will be AWESOME!" only when you're finished, it's not so awesome at all?

 Yeah, that was my daughter's flip flops this week. I had this bright idea to dress up some flip flops I found for I think 1.99 at a thrift store in Ventura, CA. 

I got some rhinestones, E6000 glue and went to work. I did NOT like the results!

So after throwing a REAL thinking cap on, I came up with this.

 MUUUCCCCHHHH better. And so cute. I used modge podge and then sealed the glitter with an spray acrylic gloss, so we won't have glitter shooting everywhere when she walks.

 On another note, please lift me up in prayer; I found out my Grandmother went to be with the Lord this morning. While I am rejoicing that she's in our Savior's presence and pain-free, I am still grieving. 

Thanks friends.
