Welcome back from Christmas. We sure hope you received everything you asked Santa for. In case you missed out on a fashionable gift you can still make something for yourself. Try creating these stylish shoes. They were created using dollies and Mod Podge. Now normally when you think of dollies an image of your grandmother or aunt may appear in your head, but don’t be so quick to dismiss this antique treasure.
