B-dazled crocs

You would think that after attaching 23,000 beads, bangles and bows to my art car, B-Dazle, I would have thought of something exciting to do with my beloved crocs wouldn’t you?

It took Lisa, from Eclectic Visions, to trigger the idea for B-dazzling my crocs. Now, I must tell you, this was no small job. If my shoe size was an adorable size 6, it would have been a lot easier. But, at size 11 (I am just short of 6’ tall so I need a good “understanding.”) it did take me a considerable amount of time.

I used the same glue I used on B-dazle, which is an aquarium glue and waterproof. I attached simple beads purchased at one of the craft stores. I didn’t want to add anything jangly because I knew it would just get in the way, you know, like swatting flies. I wear the crocs as slippers and to my swimming classes. And, of course, I drive B-dazle down to the Farmer’s Market in Roanoke where I sell my work, so my new crocs will be a perfect match!

  14. Cool crocs! Thanks for your comments on my blog - very sweet of you. In reading your bio I saw that you're from Warren - I lived in Youngstown until I was 9, then we moved to Salem where my family still has a house - Very cool to meet another Ohioan. Even though I live in Maine now, I'm always thought of as "From Away" so I'll still claim to be an Ohioan!

    WOW, fabulous shoes ... my garden shoes could use just such a splendid makeover!
    And the car now that is a beauty!!!
    When we drive down to visit our son at VA Tech, hopefully I can catch the Farmer's Market and see your creativity in person some time!
