Ok, I admit it...

...I'm not only a minivan driving, soccer mom...I'm a minivan driving, soccer JUNKIE! lol

If you've been keeping up with my blog, you're fully aware, as am I, that soccer season is now OVER! But I can't help myself. Look at this cute little "off season" footwear that I made:

At the tournament in Columbus last month, I saw someone with some flipflops on similar to these. Of COURSE I stopped her and asked her where she got them from. She told me that she actually found them at a soccer store that's right up the street from the fields where our kids play. She said the only problem with them was that they just came with blue beads, and were a little over priced. But they were so cute, she had to have them.

And being that I too thought they were cute, I said to myself, "Shoot, I can make those! And I can even make them with red beads." (remember the league colors where the kids play are red, black & white) Also remember, that I'm pretty...shall we say, frugal (ok, ok...I'm CHEAP!). So I paid a whopping $1.00 for the flipflops and got some of the beads 1/2 price and some for free...heehee. I just finished my little altering project about 20 minutes ago. Love 'em!

Lastly, a special thanks to my Jayla, for taking the picture for me.
