I started these Thursday afternoon, put in about 2.5 hours Thursday, 4 hours Friday, and all day yesterday, probably about 13-14 hours. I totally see why strassed shoes are pricey!!

Will I do this again? Maybe. I don’t know. It was alot of work! My neck hurts!!

But I know what shoes I’m wearing today!!!

Until next time,

Jules
