Pet Portrait Custom Hand Painted Canvas TOMS Shoes
These were a very special pair of custom TOMS designed for someone in particular so I can not duplcate them, but I do love doing pet portraits and especially custom shoes that mean as much as these do! If you would like your very own pair of pet portrait TOMS, all you have to do is send me an email and I would love to hear what you would like on them to make it happen!
These were designed for a best friend. While I was at a Dave Matthews Band concert, there was a food donation drive and I had my bag of canned goods to donate and the person there accepting donations said something to me about my DMB Crash TOMS
and we struck up a conversation about them. The next day, she emailed me asking if I would design a pair for her best friend who lived far away and had a birthday coming up- extremely soon. I was out of town for the concert and was really unsure if I would be able to receive the shoes in time, design, paint and mail them in time for her, but knowing what they would mean to her, I knew I would have to really try! She told me she had an english bulldog and that she wanted that to be the main focal point on one shoe. I have an english bulldog myself and when she sent me the photo, I was blown away by how much they looked alike! I of course agreed and went to the only TOMS retailer and waited for an hour for them to search the back of the store until they came out with the only size I needed that they had instock. It wasn't the color that we originally wanted, but it was our only option. I bought them hoping that it would be ok, sent a text and got the go ahead. I immediately came home and rushed to work and began on them and didn't stop until the wee hours in the morning, woke up the next day and didn't stop until that night until I was finished. I was able to mail them just in time for her to get them while she was there visiting for her big 50th birthday surprise party. All of the little designs on the shoes hold a lot of meanings to them. I don't know what a lot of them mean. It's what deep friendship is about- when you have that kind of connection with someone, you have a lot of inside stories and funny jokes that not everyone gets. It's what makes it even more special. I did know that her dog meant so much to her and that their friendship was interlinked and made them more like sisters. With a great deal of input, I was able to design these shoes to make them extra special for her best friend and make them very meaningful to her.
I hope they continue to have a lifelong friendship full of love and laughter!
