boot refashion

So...who else has a child that scuffs their shoes the first or second time they wear them?!  It is so frustrating.  The number one reason I refuse to pay full price for kid shoes if I don't have to.  I buy most of Little Bit's shoes on clearance in the off season.

Enter the tan boots.  I scored these beauties on clearance at Target for around $6.  But the first time she wore them they were scuffed!  So I put my craftiness to the test and tried my hand at making them beautiful again. 
I taped off the toe area, spread on a layer of Mod Podge, sprinkled with glitter, then added another layer of Mod Podge, glitter and Mod Podge.  I let it dry about 20 minutes in between first and second coat.  Then the next day I added a 3rd spot coat....filling in more around the scuffed area as needed. 


They turned out wonderful!  Little Bit is loving them and wearing them every chance she gets!

Have you ever tried refashioning any shoes?

Christmas at Disney

I know I haven't posted for awhile but I'm still here.  Life just happens and blogging gets pushed aside.  I wanted to share some pics from our recent trip to Florida.  


This is the first time we have visited Disney during the Christmas season.  We LOVED it!  If you are thinking of planning a trip I highly recommend this time of year.  One stop we made were the streets of New York in Hollywood Studios for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights....amazing!!!




This was also the first time we attended a special party night put on at the Magic Kingdom.  We attended Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  There are special characters and Christmas costumes just for this event.  Free hot chocolate and cookies!  The Jungle Cruise is transformed to the Jingle Cruise.  A special Christmas parade.


Seeing the seven dwarfs was top on our list!  The line gets extremely long for them so we jumped in early and were visiting with them in no time!  So worth the wait....they are too cute!


Elsa & Anna were also top on the list of must sees.  We had met Anna when we were in Disneyland in May.  BUT Elsa is Little Bit's favorite so we waited in yet another line.  The joy on her face when meeting them was worth it though! 


One of my favorites was watching the lighting of the castle.  Isn't this just breathtaking?! 


I'm already dreaming of the next Disney adventure! ;)
