Create Your Own Designer Shoes

I got this in an email and I thought it was pretty interesting. It is about how to create our own designer shoes. I am crafty and do lots of painting and stenciling so I might just try this. At least if we mess up with a pair of inexpensive cloth shoes, that is not the same as trying to doctor up a pair of Jimmy choos!

The Post Gazette: Full Story here

We've all seen them in the most expensive shoe stores. We've marveled at them in magazines and on TV. They're the ultimate, status-y fashion item, yearned for (and paid for) by those gorgeous young women on TV whose complex social lives always seem to involve fabulous shoes designed just for their pedicured feet. Well, what if you could fake those designer shoes for less than $25?

Start at the least expensive shoe store in your local mall. Choose a pair of plain, solid- color fabric evening shoes. Get 'em pointy, strappy ... whatever you like. Buy on sale if you can. Just be sure you can toddle around in them, at least for an evening.

Here's what else you'll need in the way of materials:

  • One pair of inexpensive fabric shoes
  • No. 2 round paintbrush
  • One color of acrylic paint (from the craft store)
  • Blue pencil (craft store)
  • 2 small vintage buttons or millenary flowers
  • Needle and thread
  • Soft velvet for bows
  • Pinking shears


1. Use the blue pencil to mark the position of the dots on shoes.

2. Using the round No. 2 paintbrush, delicately paint on the polka dots. The secret is to keep the same distance between your images. They shouldn't be too close or too far apart,

3. Cut two 1-inch-wide strips of soft velvet with pinking shears. Tie into two bows.

4. Attach a button to the center of each bow with the needle and thread, then sew bow securely to the shoe.

Feeling daring! Feeling like you want a piece lof motorcycle action? Well, you can always get the boots. These are a few of the styles availbale for woman, not online, but at your local Harley store. A bit clunky, but I bet these boots will last forever. More styles can be found at the Harley Davidson site.

Ace Boot $122
(I like these the best. I would wear these)

Overland Boot $135
(My sisterin law's sister wore a pair of boots that looked very similar to these under her bride'smaid gown when my brother got married. Yeah! She is a tough one!)

Loni Boot $130

Layla Boot $115
(I like these the least of all)

Eagle Harness $155

Harley Davidson also has a full line of boot care products. From polishes, to leather cleaners to rain and stain repellents, they have it all.

Amazon has a few more flattering boots and shoes by Harley Davidson. I love the brown clogs! Who knew that Harley Davidson made a black dress high heeled shoe? That is surprising. Do bikers have a ball or formal dance?

Six Affairs

I got this in an email from work on yesterday! Pretty interesting!


A married man was having an affair with his secretary. One day, their passions overcame them and they took off for her house, where they made passionate love all afternoon.

Exhausted from the wild sex, they fell asleep, awakening around 8:00 PM. As the man threw on his clothes, he told the woman to take his shoes outside and rub them through the grass and dirt. Mystified, she nonetheless complied.

He slipped into his shoes and drove home. "Where have you been?" demanded his wife when he entered the house. "Darling, I can't lie to you. I've been having an affair with my secretary and we've been having sex all afternoon. I fell asleep and didn't wake up until eight o'clock."

The wife glanced down at his shoes and said, "You lying bastard. You've been playing golf."


There was a middle-aged couple that had two stunningly beautiful teenage daughters. The couple decided to try one last time for the son they always wanted.

After months of trying, the wife finally got pregnant and sure enough, delivered a healthy baby boy nine months later. The joyful father rushed into the nursery to see his new son. He took one look and was horrified to see the ugliest child he had ever seen.

He went to his wife and told her there was no way he could be the father of that child. "Look at the two beautiful daughters I fathered." Then he gave her a stern look and asked, "Have you been fooling around on me?" The wife just smiled sweetly and said, "Not this time."


A mortician was working late one night. It was his jb to examine the dead bodies before they were sent off to be buried or cremated. As he examined the body of Mr. Schwartz, who was about to be cremated, he made an amazing discovery. Schwartz had the longest private part he had ever seen.

"I'm sorry, Mr. Schwartz," said the mortician, "but I can't send you off to be cremated with a tremendously huge member like this. It has tol be saved for posterity." With that, the coroner used his tools to remove the dead man's amazingly huge wachamacallit. He stuffed his prize into a briefcase and took it home.

The first person he showed it to was his wife. "I have something to show you that you won't believe," he said, and opened up his briefcase. "Oh my God" his wife screamed, "Schwartz is dead."


A woman was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband opening the front door. "Hurry," she said, "stand in the corner." Then she quickly rubbed baby oil all over him and then dusted him with talcum powder. "Don't move until I tell you to," she whispered. "Just pretend you're a statue."

"What's this, honey?" the husband inquired as he entered the room. "Oh, it's a statue," she replied nonchalantly. "The Smiths bought one for their bedroom. I liked it so much, I got one for us too."

No more was said about the statue, not even later when they went to sleep. Around two in the morning, the husband got out of bed, went to the kitchen, and returned a while later with a sandwich and a glass of milk. "Here," he said to the statue, "eat something. I stood like an idiot at the Smith's house for three days and nobody offered me as much as a glass of water."


A man walks into a nightclub one night. He goes up to the bar and asks for a beer. "Certainly, Sir, that'll be 1 cent." "One cent?", exclaimed the man. The bartender replied, "Yes."

So the man glances over at the menu and asks, "Could I have a nice juicy T-bone steak with chips, peas, and a fried egg?" "Certainly, Sir," replies the barman, "but that comes to real money." "How much money?" inquires the man. "Four cents," the bartender replied. "Where's the guy who owns this place?" The bartender replied, "Upstairs, with my wife."

The man says, "What's he doing upstairs with your wife?"

The bartender replied, "The same thing as I'm doing to his business."


Jake was dying. His wife, Becky, was maintaining a candlelight vigil by his side. She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face. Her praying roused him from his slumber.

He looked up and his pale lips began to move slightly. "Becky my darling," he whispered.

"Hush my love," she said. "Rest, don't talk."

He was insistent. "Becky," he said in his tired voice, "I have something that I must confess."

There's nothing to confess," replied the weeping Becky, "everything's all right, go to sleep."

"No, no. I must die in peace, Becky. I I slept with your sister, with your best friend, with her best friend, and with you mother."

"I know, my sweet one" whispered Becky, "that's why I poisoned you."

Happy Thanksgiving!

"Pass the deer and eel please!" Are these words you would expect to hear around your Thanksgiving dinner table? When most people think of a traditional U.S. Thanksgiving dinner, they think of turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and maybe apple pie. The original American Thanksgiving dinner in 1621, however, was very different. In the fall of 1621, 52 Pilgrims and 90 Native Americans came together in Plymouth, Massachusetts, for meals celebrating the harvest. Although Thanksgiving did not become an official holiday until 1863, most Americans consider the Plymouth feast as the first Thanksgiving. The food that these early Americans shared was not what most people would expect.

Pilgrims and Native Americans probably ate turkey. Mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and apple pie, however, were not on the menu. In 1621, potatoes were not part of the Pilgrims' diet. According to Kathleen Curtin, most Pilgrims had never heard of potatoesÂpotatoess grew only in South America until the late1600ss. Curtin is a food historian atPlymouthh Plantation, a living-history museum in Massachusetts. The Pilgrims and Native Americans may have eaten cranberries, but certainly not cranberry sauce. Sugar, an important ingredient in cranberry sauce, had probably not yet traveled to the New World. According to Curtin, "It would be 50 years before an Englishman mentioned boiling this New England berry with sugar." But the Pilgrims must have eaten apple pie? Surprisingly, they did not. Apples do not naturally grow in North America. The fruit didn't come to the United States until years later. So what, then, did people eat at the first Thanksgiving? The meals and festivities lasted for three days. During that time, the early Americans ate a lot of food. They probably had deer, clams, dried berries, corn, wild turkeys, and fish such as cod, sea bass, and eels. And the meat did not come in packages from the grocery store. "Animals were often cooked with heads and feet still attached. The 'humbles' [what we would call guts] were cooked and eaten as well," Carolyn Travers, a researcher atPlymouthh Plantation, explained. This Thanksgiving, as you dig in, be thankful you're eating turkey and pie and not baked guts!

Holiday Time is Here!

I went to the mall today and hear Christmas music playing. It has been playing since halloween or rather the day after halloween. Seems like Christmas is coming sooner and sooner. Next thing you know we will have christmas music playing after the fourth of july or labor day. The craziest thing I have seen is the inverted christmas tree. It is not for me. Remember my feelings on the half christmas tree? Ban the half Christmas tree! Well the inverted I feel even worst about. Weird!

Would you buy this?

I did find a wonderful cd today. I did buy it along with lots of good stuff at Bath and Body Works. I got the christmas pine room spray. I bought the candle last year and it is still fragrant. I love it. Now I smell christmas trees all the time. I wonder if I can take that to work and spray it around?

This is the cd I found. You know I am a lover of all things celtic so it was a celtic christmas cd. I can't wait to break it open. I am making myself wait until Thanksgiving weekend. I found it at Target. It is a two cd set.

William Shatner Wants to Sell kidney Stones on Ebay

William Shatner is hoping to persuade medics who removed his kidney stone to hand it over so he can sell it on auction site eBay.

The actor, who played Captain James T Kirk in Star Trek, claims the stone will become "the ultimate piece of Star Trek memorabilia".

Shatner plans to give the proceeds of the sale to charity, but he has to cut through eBay red tape first - the website's rules are strict about the sale of body parts.

The 74-year-old actor was taken from the set of his hit TV show Boston Legal last month, suffering from what was initially reported to be chronic back pain.

But Shatner has since revealed he had a kidney stone, which he successfully passed after experiencing excruciating pain.

What was he thinking? That is an embarrassment to all trekkies everywhere. And an embarrassment to Canada! I can say this. I have been a trekkie since I was a child. I grew up with James T. Kirk and watched every episode of every Star Trek series that came on. From tribbles to borgs I was there. He needs to stop as he is running off at the mouth now! Who would want his kidney stones? Where would you keep them? On your living room mantel in a bowl?

Reading about James T. Kirk made me wonder where all my Star Trek stuff is. It has vanished throughout the years. I used to have a communicator pin just like this one with sound. I was such a geek. (Maybe "was" is not the right tense?) I used to wear it everyday and would use it often each day beaming myself up to the ship when my day was stressful. My coworkers just looked as I talked to Scotty, Data, Dax, Odo, Picard, 7 of 9..whoever. I was always talking to someone in the ship. My communicator had sound just like the ones on tv. You couldn't tell me nothin when I was using it.

And let's not forget the uniform. I did not want to look like I just walked off the set. So I had a modified Star Trek suit that I would wear to work at least once a month. It had a black skirt so I could wear heels and be dressy. It would make people take a 2nd look. Was that a Star Trek uniform I had on or was it a suit with those colors?

I got a suit pattern and altered it. It looked just like this although it was a suit jacket with an invisible zipper. I have not worn this suit in about 4 years. My communicator I misplaced about a year ago. I would still be wearing it if I could find it. I guess I will have to buy another from the Star Trek Fan Club.

I remember when I first saw Spock's greeting. I practiced and practiced until my fingers would separate like his too. They still do. I still give people his greeting from time to time. dirty Fila now wants to learn how to make her fingers separate like Spock's. She cannot do it yet.

Did I say earlier that I "was" a geek? I guess I was and still am. Once you profess to be Trekkie, you are forever a geek. It will follow you to the grave.

Musical Wants

The holidays are coming and dirty Fila has given me a list of music she wants. Some of it is okay. Others, well... she will still be wanting them. (Can we says 50 cent?) I simply cannot break down and buy it. Too hard core. Here is what she wants.

----------- ---------

Why she is so into thug music is beyond me. She does not get the opportunity to listen to it at home very often. I am busy drowning it out with Vivaldi. dirty Fila is now taking guitar lessons so she has decided she wants Macy Gray and Avril Lavigne. At least those two are not so hardcore. I do like Missy Elliott myself. Loose Control is my current theme song.

Paul Wall is just plain scary with the grill! 50 Cent is perpetrating hard core...seems like is now an act and not the real 50 after that lst interview with him on the Howard Stern show. T. I. ..I don't know him and Ray J? I just found out he was Brandy's little brother. I had no idea. That is how "in the know" I am. Kanye West. The Game? I don't know him or them either.

Elusive Boots

For the three past months I have looking for a pair of cowboys boots. I have tried on many a pair or attempted to try on many. I have tried all sorts of brands and cannot get them on. My foot goes in to the point where the ankle begins and their my foot gets stuck. I cannot get my foot to go down into the boot all the way. The leather is no hard and non pliable! It is so frustrating. Now if there is a zipper, no problem. What is it? I do not know. The boots are my size but I cannot get them on. And once I get my foot in that part way , it is very hard to get my foot back out. I need a giant shoe horn for those boots! The search will continue. I WILL get a pair of cowboy boots that fit!

Some of these are lovely!

Totally Ridiculous!

These are absolutely ridiculous shoes...
and so is the heifer I will be talking about now.

Ghetto shoes...she is one I will be adding to my "cast of shoes." She deserves a spot right near the top. Where to begin? Let's begin with her shoes. She wears totally ghetto shoes. For halloween she came in with a pair of bright neon orange shoes on with a pair of black pants and a shirt that had a large pupmkin on it. Nothing wrong with that outfit on that day, but those shoes. When she wears then with jeans they look hideous! Just hideous. Totally tacky. They look kind of like leather espadrilles, but cheap. The other shoes she wears are just as tacky. They are those off brand shoes you see at the urban fashion stores at the mall. Cheap and those high heeled orange nubuck steel toed work boots. Who would wear those and where? Ghetto shoes would. She wore them to work.


The other day I overheard her talking about getting a tattoo of the sun around her navel. EEEEH! O kay she is not a thin girl. She is not really big either but she has a big stomach with some rolls of fat there at her waist line. She talks about and does wear now belly shirts with the rolls of fat hanging out in. She does not wear belly shirts to work, but I have seen some weekend pictures. At work she wears form fitting shirts tucked into skirts or pants. There is nothing left to the imagination that she "might" have a jelly belly. She does. She looks bad in those form fitting clothes.

Japanese Salad

Carnival of the Recipes!

I was attending a church function a few weeks ago. It was pot luck. One of the other ladies in the congregation made this wonderful salad: Japanese Salad. It is divine! She shared the recipe with anyone who wanted it. Here it is!

Japanese Salad

1 package prepared slaw
4 scallions, chopped
1 package Ramen noodle soup
1/4 cup margarine or butter
3 tablespoons sesame seeds or 1 cup sunflower kernels
1/4 cup or 1/2 cup slivered almonds


1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar or Equal

Smash noodles in the package, the smaller the better. Melt the margarine or butter in a skillet. Add noodles with flavor pack, seeds or kernels and almonds. Brown mixture well. The browner the mixture, the crunchier the salad. Cool and put in airtight container. Add noodle mixture and dressing before serving.

Geta Shoes
What is Japanese salad without Japanese shoes?

Geta are a style of traditional Japanese footwear. They have a flat wood sole, a "V" style toe thong, and are raised up on two wood strips. In Japanese the strips are called "Ha" which is the Japanese word for tooth or teeth.

In Japanese there are no plurals, so the term geta applies to one, a pair, or a whole teahouse full of them. It's pronounced GE-ta as in "get a job."

The soles are rectangular and the thong that goes between the toes is centered between the two sides of the sole so that the left and right geta are identical. The thong goes between the big toe and the next one so the foot is off-center.

Shoes on the Table

Today I feel exhausted. Like I cannot put one foot in front of the other. I even left work 2 hours early today to get some rest. Funny, I could not wind down to rest during the day. So I tarry on. Exhausted.

The staff is still dropping like flies. One of the new hires who has been at work all of three weeks has just been snatched up by the competition. I spoke to her..$5000 more per year. Who could pass that up? Makes me think I need to get my ducks in a row and check out Monster myself! 2006 might just be the year of the move.

I am on the committee that does event planning for the things. Normally that is fun. A chance to have an office outing or luncheon together. Now it seems to be a hard thing to do. It is almost like we were under the rule of Saddam before and now we have to vote to have anything. Now as it turns out , instead of the commitee just planning and announcing we will be having this or that party, we have to vote whether to have a party at all. Now, we get lots of "No" votes. Noone wants to do anything. The thing is, it would be free food and time away from the office or desk. Who would want to give that up? I would kill for time away from the dreaded phone. We have to use up that money or loose it. The company can't give it to the employees at year end.

I spend alot of time composing PC emails requesting that people vote for this or vote for that...majority rules. The funny thing is the complainers who started this whole "voting fiasco" do not vote. They just say... whatever.

I bet Walter Steed is tired. Him and his three wives who are all sisters. How do you keep three woman happy? Does he take turns to have sex, or do they all share the same room all the time? He needs to be fired. As a judge, he needs to live like the rest of the "normal" people spouse at a time. We have some mormons at work who swear that polygamy is not practiced anymore. I just looked at them today with eyebrows raised when I heard then discussing it. I bet he has an neverending prescription for viagara. With that homely wife, he may need it.

Hamma. Hamma. Hamma. Please don't google em!

Shoes Closer to Home

dirty Fila and her middle school drama. What next? What NEXT! As I pull my hair out. I have a guy I have been seeing for quite some time. Years. He does not live with us. He does come over one night a week to stay, well after dirty Fila has gone to bed and he leaves for work before she gets up. The most she sees is a few dinner visits during the week on occassion and phone calls everyday. She now becomes upset whenever he calls me on the phone. She says he calls too much. Every waking moment is spent with her and I have tried to spare her my relationship. She says phone calls are too much time away from her. Can we say crazy? When we talk we may speak for about 10 minutes in the early evening and that is about it until she goes to bed.

I am not sure what this is about. I spend all my time with her. She has spent limited time with him. He is a math guru so when her homework looks like greek to me, I call him and he can get her on the right path. He will help me in those desperate moments with her homework. If the car breaks down and I am stranded and cannot get to dirty Fila, he has on occassion picked her up, picked me up, helped with the car problem and whatever else. When she was smaller and was not picked up from day care on time , it costs and has has cost me $1.00 a minute for every minute late.

I guess this is some sort of powerplay or jealousy? I can't understand it. He has been a constant for about 5 years. He is never in contact with her...or very limited to those few breakdowns or homework. The only thing she sees are the daily phone calls. I plan to talk to her this weekend about it. I think she needs to realize that I need to have friends, both male and female and that at times, I do have to spend time with others, but it in no way is taking anything away from her.
Motherhood. Joyful. Yes it is!

Middle Age

Middle age must have snuck up on me when I was not looking. I was putting makeup on this moring and low and behold I found a chin hair. A Chin Hair! I looked at it in horror. Then I got the highest power magnifying mirrow I had and looked over my entire face, one pore at a time. I found 3 chin hairs and 1 nose hair that was sticking out the tip of my nose. Can we all say mortrified! I have no sorts of hair remover so I just shaved the chin hairs off and clipped the nose hair. I will not have to invest in hair removal products. I am not a fan of plucking. That hurts.
Getting old sure is hell! I just can't see me trading in my heels for the orthopedic shoes just yet.
