Go buy my sole!

Yesterday, after much dilly dallying I finally took out time to visit the Puma store and check out my brand new, super kitsch flip flop design #1.

After looking around for exactly 5 seconds (I was too impatient to get my hands on them and didn't want to waste time searching) I asked the salesgirl for assistance. She pointed them out and then I saw them... Sitting pretty, in all equality, amidst all the lovely Puma footwear. They were big ( a size 10), had a sturdy base unlike other flip flops and I'm pretty sure I heard them calling out to me. (Also, is this what it feels like to have a child?)

So after taking about twenty pictures on my phone camera, thanking the salespeople for obliging and walking out the store, I realised that I was largely happy with the outcome (it's not everyday that artsy fartsy kids get to put their handy work on a branded flip flop.) However, needless to say, being the one that drew out the design from scratch, I am a wee bit disappointed with the nitty-gritties; like how they stretched the design, or didn't add detailing on the guy's t-shirt or lost a big chunk of the purple, or priced it so much more than I thought they would!

Anyway, I'm going to stop complaining. Go buy my sole!
