Over at the Glitter and Gloom Blog...

Currently taking inventory of all of our items, sifting through the plushie goodness!

Life got in the way of our shop's relaunch, but now I have time to focus on the shop and I'm in full swing of getting our items back up.

And if you look closely you'll see some new stuff too!

Coat Hanger Cover

After years of thinking that coat hangers covers were silly. I saw somewhere a very pretty embroidered cover. And well, lets just say that I'm singing a different tune now.
I have wanted to use this Sublime Stitching design for some time now and thought that it would be prefect for this project!

The coat hanger cover it all it's glory
I've become enslaved in the need to fill in all the empty spaces. 
I actually enjoy satin stitches, they aren't hard and they look pretty. They just take a lot of floss.

Even though you really can't see the hair, I was proud of myself, it was the first time that I really tried a satin stitch.

Kitchen wall

I finally got my embroidery up on my new kitchen wall.

But as you can see I have plenty of space to fill :)

 I LOVE Iron Fist shoes but not the prices.
I had an ugly plain white ballet flats leftover from a wedding I was in and well, I hate flats. Plus these were BORING white. I was going to toss them but I ran across a tute on the CO&K site. Then I knew what I would do with them.
 I found the shoes that I liked the best and used that for reference.

 So pretty!

The teeth!

I'm not a painter in any way, just not my forte. But I bit the bullet and just did it. 

 It's a good thing that I have shaky hands.
 WIP pics.

 They turned out just GREAT!! I was so impressed with myself for never have done anything like that before. I think that I'll buy some black flats instead of painting the whole shoe black. It was a lot easier then I thought.
My hubby likes them so much that he wants me to display them instead of wear them. lol!
