Nicks challenge to me originally was to make something using materials not typically used for crafting. However, when I was at hers making my lovely box, she asked me if I wanted a real challenge. Now, I'm not sure quite what made me say "yes" but I did and she gave me a plain, wooden shoe stretcher to alter as I wished.
Officially, this swap was due to end 30 July but it was almost a challenge too far for me (Lol) and I've only recently completed said item. And I have absolutely no idea how it came about. It just evolved into what you see in the pics! Nicks did ask me if I wanted the other shoe but I gracefully declined the offer. I have little enough hair as it is! ;>)
