The faerie shoe swap

Tis the night before the midsummer ball and all the faeries were busy putting the last touches to the outfits they planned to wear....... When.

They realise that they had forgotton to make faerie shoes to go with their beautiful dresses.....What would they do?

Then Maygreen faerie suggested a faerie shoe swap.

Here's how it will work each participant will make a shoe to swap with someone else. 

Add lots of sprinkles , dazzle, whismy and magic. Embellish, embellish ..... be creative.

You can use any medium to make your shoe. Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/ has a wonderful tutorial on how to make a paper shoe.. and I used her pattern for both my paper shoes or you could alter a real shoe. (unused please)

Remember to add your name to your shoe. If you would like to tuck in a little extra in the shoe, that's  okay... Terri adds a small bungle of lace etc. I added some tags and ephemera...or you could just add a hand made card.

It's about the shoe so you don't need to go crazy with the extras.

I will take sign up until June 20th  or until full.
To sign up email BLISS.WDA@GMAIL.COM with your name, mailing address and blog address.
I will email you with your partners details.
All shoes are to send on July 30th.

Please take the button to spread the word, invite your friends.

Hugs Wendy
