On February 25 my best girlfriend and I will be attending Marie’s Market Soiree . I can't believe such an amazing art event is being held minutes from my house. I absolutely cannot wait to see artists like Jennifer Hayslip, Heidi Wallingford, and Cassandra VanCuren (host of the event). I have been admiring these talented women's' work for a while now on their blogs and in magazines such as "Where Women Create". I think I might faint when I see their art in person. All of them create such detailed and beautiful vintage inspired pieces. They are going to have some make and takes at the market and some give aways . The part of the show I am most looking forward to is the Marie shoe contest. I have decorated a pair for me to wear (pictured above) and I will be creating a pair for my girlfriends as well. We are going to have the best time getting dolled up Marie style. I will post my next pair of shoes when I finish them. I have a large gold shadow box that I think I am going to display our over the top shoes in as a memory of the event.
Here are before and after pictures of my shoes I embellished for the event:
