These laces were super cute, exactly the texture I was picturing and took my shoes up the extra notch they needed! For reference, I have Hoka One One Bondi 7s in Aquarell.

Had custom made-canvas shoes made for the band Train. Patti was such a pleasure to work with. Great communicator, artist, and so easy to work with. This is my second purchase like this and I'll probably be sending another order in.

This shop went ABOVE AND BEYOND with my order. We worked together for months before placing the order, she was so patient, so kind, so accommodating and I would recommend her to anyone! I’ll send a photo when we have one but the bride loved her shoes and they were perfect! ❤️

Long time IT corporate world turned crafting convert!
I love finding inspiration in everyday things and turning them into something new and unique. I hope you find something that intrigues you in my shop! After study in the Arts as a young woman, an IT career spanning more than 3 decades, I find myself contemplating the world today, the politics we are living in and my own experiences in the male dominated world of IT. I have found I have some things to say. I hope what I say speaks to you.

I have long wanted to reignite my artsy/craftsy side and have so very fortunately found this niche that allows me to indulge my love of visuals and colors that are simply beautiful to behold.

For my Converse listings, I use authentic Converse tennis shoes. For my lower end shoe listings, I source my shoes from many different manufacturers and depending availability, shipping time frames, etc., order accordingly. My shop policy is to not share this information as I have spent many hours doing the necessary research to find the best product available.

How can I exchange an item?
I will exchange unworn, original condition items when the size does not work out. However, the buyer will be responsible for all shipping costs both to return the item and to send out the new item. I will only send out the replacement item once I have received the return. I must be notified of the exchange request within 3 days of the item delivery and the item must be returned within 7 days of delivery. Please message me for details if you need to exchange an item.
What material is used for the design?
I used a special Heat Transfer Vinyl that once applied will not come off. I have perfected a four step process that I use on each shoe in order to ensure that the design is permanently attached! Each shoe is made to order and given my utmost attention to detail.
