What is Favola Bella?

Welcome to a world of wonderful creations!
This is where your shoes meet my imagination and become
One of a kind pieces of ART!
With your ideas and my paint brushes we can really make something new.
I love getting close to the people I work with on each shoe.
Some want a shoe that tells who they are and what they love.
Some have that overly loved old pair that are worn out and want to be brought back to life!
So they send me them and I paint some new life back into them and give them a face lift.
Upcycling shoes can be really fun and come out better than you could ever imagine.
Then I do baby shoes for baby shower gifts and keep sakes.
There are many ways to use this art form and make it your own.
Some give me full freedom on design and I just go for it.
I ask questions and get to know them a little to feel out what they would enjoy.
Others are very sure of what they want down to the colors and the design.
Either way this is an adventure that is just waiting for you to try it out!

So You know how you fall in love with a pair of shoes...
They are so old and worn that they mold to your foot just right. You could be lost in the desert and still trust that your feet are safe! (besides the little holes that might let in some sand)

Well I have a pair of shoes that I have loved for almost 9 years now. They are pretty trashed. They have holes and the rubber on the inside is torn out...not to mention that they smell kinda bad.

I felt the urge to try and give them a much needed face lift.
So I started to think about the very "GREEN" and super popular way of doing so:
So the brain storm began. What do I do to my old faithful shoes?

Rubber inside is falling out...I drew on the toes with sharpie like a million years ago.

HAHA notice the baby foot :) And the Huge hole in the side!

I think this is a great way to take your eye off the old issue.

My My these shoes sure did age well! Don't you think?

Inspiration?! Oh well that would be the little cute wooden earrings you see here.
I don't know about you but I am digging the set!

Below I am going to be adding some upcycled baby/toddler shoes I painted up just for

They have added me as one of their lucky Mommy Preneur's

These shoes were not easy for me...I was struggling with a princess theme.
I am hoping to try again. I will be practicing on the princess feel. They did turn out cute though.

On the other hand...I was in LOVE with these little cuties! I guess I was just in a Yo Ho kinda mood!
Something about the cheerful way they turned out just made me smile.
To each their own right!
