wearing your heart on your feet

i am a lover of all things comfy,
so my toesies and a pair of toms are pretty much meant to be. 
my very first pair of toms were navy and white stripes.
my dad called them prison shoes.
i wore them all day every day. even when a giant hole appeared right on my big toe.

when my sweet cousin asked me if i would be willing to paint a pair of toms for her,
i had to take a few minutes to really think about it,
but after some coaxing, i took on the challenge,
and i'm so glad i did!

this sweet cousin of mine has an incredible heart for missions, especially in the country of Mozambique. she spent some time there on a mission trip a few years back, and her heart has been there ever since! :)
after lots and lots of sketching and trial runs on paper,
and a lot of prayer,
i finally worked up the courage to put the paint on the canvas.
inspired by this pair on etsy
i had so much fun working on this project and i feel incredibly blessed that she would trust her toms to me!  and i don't think they turned out half bad if i do say so myself! :)

"however, i consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me." acts 20:24

do you own a pair of toms?
would you ever decorate a pair of your own?


  1. Oh wow! Those look really great! Good job. :)

  2. Wow- great job those look AWESOME!

  3. I would probably never decorate my own pair, but I would love to send you some to decorate for me ;) They look amazing!! Great job!!!!
    Have a great day

  4. *gasp* I LOVE!!!! this Sarah you did an incredible job you should totally be patting yourself on the back!
    I've almost ruined (with love) my's time to buy a new pair. They really are the most comfy things ever!
    I'm guessing you used fabric paint?! :)
    I've been wanting to do something similar for a while... :)

  5. Those are amazing!! You did such a great job. Love them!

  6. These looks amazing! I would never have the courage to do this! Can I borrow your talents for mine? Haha!
    Love them!


  7. These are adorable! My cousin decorate two of her pairs of Toms after they got old and holey so she could keep wearing them!

  8. I have never worn Toms! I really think I should start now. :) And I would try to decorate them but I don't have as much talent as you do! :)
