For the Holidays

I love it when I get to make a pair of shoes that really mean something. This darling pair are to grace the feet of the first grandbaby of a very close friend of the family.

In fact, when I was in high school, Mrs. Faber lived across the street from us. She has a daughter, Jackie, who is my age (an incidentally one of my biggest cheerleaders). Our families became very close, and having Mrs. Faber across the street was like having a bonus Mom. And what teenage girl couldn't benefit from a little extra mothering?

So I was so thrilled to get to make a pair of shoes for her sweet granddaughter's first Christmas.

She's going to wear them to meet Santa...

I wanted them to be holiday, but still something she could wear past Christmas time...

That's one bridesmaid's dress put to good use don't you think?

P.S. What school did you go to for fashion design? I started going to a community college but had to stop because of family life. I'm hoping to start up again soon!

Catherine, thank you! I went to school at Columbia College in Columbia, MO. But, my senior year was the last year for their fashion program. Stephens College in the same town is a great school for Fashion design though. Good luck going back! That's a very brave and strong decision to make.
