Paint your shoes with this doodle shoe update tutorial DIY via lilblueboo.com

I’ve had this pair of bright apple green shoes sitting in my closet for almost 10 years! I’ve probably worn them a total of three times because they just don’t match many items in my closet…..so I thought I’d add some color!

My only supplies needed were Angelus Leather Paint and a very small brush (with half the bristles cut off for a finer point).

"Mom, do you think I could have something "store" bought…..

….manufactured, or maybe even mass-produced?” That is exactly how I picture the conversation starting one day. I make most of my daughter’s clothes and I am positive that one day the novelty will wear off for her.

Two things I do NOT make: shoes and underwear, so that part of her wardrobe becomes very neglected. But in all seriousness, does a two-year-old really need more than one pair of shoes (and maybe a pair of pink “super hero” boots)? Besides, I happen to think skater shoes look cute with a church dress….

Thank goodness for Grandmothers. Thank you “Mimi” for Sienna’s new shoes! I no longer will be embarrassed when her school thinks she came in barefooted because none of the shoes on hand fit…..

Changing the subject: I am a little horrified that Sienna “captured” Tinkerbell in her juice cup and then filled it halfway with water. Tink even looks like she is yelling “heeeeelllllppp”…….
