A Shoe Giveaway!




So I'm going to do a giveaway in celebration of getting out of a long funk with no inspiration for new designs. This is the first pair of shoes made with my sudden inspiration listed in my last blog post.
These are the Audrey shoes. I am loving the way they turned out! They will probably be listed in my store soon for $23. This pair is a size 3-6 months or 4.25 inches long. The flowers are made so that the edges won't ravel as they are tucked under and tightly sewn. As I said before, they are inspired by all the weddings I have been to lately and so would make a pretty little fancy shoe for a special dress and chic occasion. They are soft soled as always with microsuade soles.

So how do you win these? Leave a comment telling me what inspires you to create. If you follow me, leave another comment letting me know you do for another chance to enter the giveaway.
Many more of this style in other colors to come! Winning name will be picked August 31st and you will have 48 hours to respond!

  2. These are SO CUTE!!! I have no idea if I'll ever have a girl of my own, but I almost always give shoes/socks at baby showers, so I would find a use for these somehow. :)

    As far as inspiration, I don't have crazy creative genes, but sometimes I alter existing patterns to make a slightly new look. I'm very visual, so I often pick one fabric to work with and then find other fabrics to compliment it (all within my stash). Sometimes the types of ribbons, etc. that I have on hand will inspire new designs so that I can use them up. :)

  3. And I guess I never officially "followed" your blog even though it's in my reader, so I did that, too. :)

  7. These are sooo cute! Believe it or not, etsy inspires me to create! Seeing other people's amazing work inspires me. I mostly do scrapbooking and love photography. I love reading people's blogs and seeing their photos and ideas -- it definitely inspires me.

  8. Gorgeous shoe. Wish I had my own little girl but think my niece would be adorable wearing these. I scrapbook and have gotten into crocheting also. My son is my inspiration.

  9. Your shoes are lovely! I'd like to have another wee one before my clock winds down. I have a 19, 17, and 3!! year old and am trying to have one more, but maybe God has other plans for me.
    What inspires me? Every time I step outdoors, I get inspired. I live on a farm, and just the small things around me can do that, like how many times has anyone really looked closely at the flowers of grass? You have to get pretty close, but they are just as pretty as a garden flower. With that said, I really don't need vacations when I have my own backyard! :)

  10. Love these shoes! I am in the process of trying to have a little one of my own, after suffering through a miscarriage :( and would love to have these for my future little girl! As far as inspiration I find it in colors around me and by browsing the internet looking at other peoples creativity.

  11. I found you on etsy and would love to send some of your shoes to a friend who just had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago. The hard part was she had to go into the hospital with her at two weeks old all alone, because she lives in Houston with her husband and their 2 year with no family or anyone to help. So, as her husband stayed home she headed up to the emergency room with this new little one at 2am in the morning all alone. I am a Mom and I can not believe she had to go alone. So, I am posting a comment to hopefully win these shoes for her. She deserves them.

    What inspires me is women. I believe God made us all inspirations and I have felt like God has called me to reach out to them. I love hosting gatherings in my home that make women feel special or making something to give that is from my hands. I believe pretty things make us feel feminine and beautiful. That is what inspires me to create and share that creation with others!

  12. Oh, those are too much cuteness! I like to think about and find ways to make science-y things fashionable, and to make fashionable things science-y. It inspires me all the time :)

  13. In browsing Etsy.com for shoes for my new daughter's dedication, I stumbled upon these stunning slippers! I'd love to have them to go with her Ivory dress - matching hair clip too, of course. Hmmm - wonder if hubby would let me splurge...?
    Etsy inspires me. I always search to my heart's content, and come away saying, "Hey, I can make that!"
    Granted, I've only been a mommy for three weeks, but already my baby girl is an inspiration. My heart's desire is to teach her about the Lord, and raise her to walk in His ways.

  14. These shoes are adorable! And actually, Etsy inspires me! Every time I am on (which lately is every day!!) I find a new shop full of beautiful and lovingly made items! It is amazing to me how God created each of us to be so...creative!!
    My baby girl, Matilda, would LOVE these shoes! She is five months old!

  15. These are stunning and oh so feminine. I wish they came in my size so I can prance daintily around my house. lol
    As for inspiration, it's looking at etsy and whatever items my children need. I also attend sewing classes as talk with the lovely ladies there about all the new things they are coming up with.

  17. I found your blog through Etsy and I love all your creative designs! I know so many women having babies right now that I'm going to send your way!

  19. Beautiful shoes! Love your shop too.

    My two kids are my inspiration- just watching them watch the world. It forces me to slow down and focus on the moment, then the creativity suddenly appears. :)

  20. These shoes are adorable! I think they would be perfect for my daughter who is almost 1. I think they would be cute for her birthday, holiday, any day.... They look like they would be very comfortable and stylish for sure.

    What inspires me is my two daughters. I have a 5 year old who was my one and only princess for so long who loves to dress up and I like to spoil. We were FINALLY blessed with another daughter last year who is also a princess. I am always on the hunt for cute and precious things for my daughters that do not compromise comfort for style.
