Invite the Gang over

Don’t you love it when the gang’s coming over?  Great food, free-flowing drinky-poos and a good feeling of having this gang in your life, right?  Totally, but I don’t want to drink after them or have anyone slurping on my drink – just keeping it real!  
 12-ct. The Gang II

This 12ct. The Gang II Party Pack should have a Diva Glass Slipper for most of the gang to slip onto their glass and know it the whole time!  Just add glasses and drinks!   Pick up a pack or two (one for you and  one to give, of course) today at  Packs come in a clear round plastic container.  Size 3 DGSlippers are shown as you see more details in the fabric with size 3.

Here's what you get:
Top row left to right:
Celebration cotton fabric features metallic accents on decadent cakes on splendid footed-cake plates among sprinkled with stars, confetti and swirls.  The 3D resin charm is a delicious looking pound cake drizzled with dark chocolate ganache and topped with a strawberry or cherry (it’s small but red) on a sliver plate.  Although it looks good enough to eat – don’t!
Wanderlust- is always ready to captivate everyone with their latest explorations.  The mustard cotton fabric speaks to the traveler with suitcases, luggage tags, compasses, etc. strewn.  Can you guess the skyline represented by the 3D resin charm?  If you guessed, Manhattan, you’re right!
Viva La France! – love this 3D resin charm of France’s flag on serene blue cotton.
BCA- pink ribbons on purple cotton adorned with a 3D resin charm spelling hope (the ‘p’ is, cleverly, an actual pink ribbon)
Middle row left to right:
Fall is in the air with this gorgeous basket weave cotton print fabric and adorned with a 3D resin leaf.
Sock Monkey doing the splits (or jumping) on a vibrant tone on tone purple cotton fabric.  Oh, those adorable sock monkeys! (3D resin charm)
Wine Lovers – Tuscany print cotton shows various wine bottles, fleur de lis, chunks of cheese and bread, stripes of maroon and gold.  Very picturesque and reminiscent of Tuscany/Italy.  Adorned with a detailed metal bottle of wine and a glass charm.  Kinda sexy.
Dog Lovers – white bones on red cotton fabric, adorned with a cute 3D resin fluffy pup!
Bottom row left to right:
Tropical themed slipper – white and blue various sized hibiscus flowers on sea blue cotton fabric adorned with a flip flop embossed with a palm tree on a patch of beach!
Let the music play – musical symbols strewn on white cotton fabric and adorned with a bright colored (purple and gold) metal guitar.  Prince tribute, perhaps?
Poker Night – playing cards are strewn about on black cotton fabric and adorned with a 3D resin 3-sided dice.

Fashionista – there should be one in each gang!  This one loves leopard print in pink with brown spots and easily dons her matching brown leopard spotted stilettos!

Which one reminds you of someone you know?  When would you use these?

Did you know you can clean soiled Diva Glass Slippers?

It's true, you can clean a dirtied Diva Glass slipper by simply soaking it in a cool, soapy bath overnight.   Rinse well and dry by pressing excess water from it by placing between a folded towel.  Let air dry.  Warm iron lightly-if needed.   Works like a dream even with fuzzy boas -just shake when dry to re-fluff!                                                    I like ACURE's Fragrance Free Argan oil castile soap as a gentle and very effective cleaner.  The label lists a wide variety of uses beyond the proverbial daily body wash or bubble bath such as to brush your teeth, wash your hair, do your laundry, clean the tub, clean your dog, clean your floors, do your dishes, etc.  I've used it to machine wash my delicates, my hair and clean a stained DGS.  And was quite pleased with the results in every instance!  This soap lasts a good long time and only takes a small amount to get excellent results.  It's vegan and is made with organic coconut oil, sunflower and Argan oils, and is paraben, sulfate, and cruelty free.  I order mine from
The DGS came out perfectly and I used the same slipper when I went to see Morgan James at The Dakota Jazz Club  - sorry I didn't take a picture of the original stain but will do so the next time I clean one.  But if you happen to have the experience, please share!  Please note, some embellishments do not wash well.

No matter your fav drink - there's a piece of stemware for that

Most folks associate stemware with wine and while they are correct (except for those newfangled flat bottoms and mason jars),  there are many other drinks traditionally served in a piece of stemware. Think  margaritas, daiquiris, martinis, champagne, beer, water, tea, juice and mixed drinks.
I keep a large collection of stemware just so I am always able to serve drinks in a glass I can put a Diva Glass Slipper on!  So matter what your drink of choice is - you'll always know which glass is yours and your coaster will go with you automatically!
16 oz. plastic w/straw
Cool leopard martini glass

Juice or water glasses dressed and ready to get the Halloween party started!

Gorgeous colored glass glasses dressed for Holiday party.

Plastic champagne glasses for punch at a baby shower.
Plastic, two-piece wine glasses at drink station at store opening.

And since there are a wide variety of stemware base sizes, I've designed a Handy Size Chart -found on every product page - to use when ordering.  Simply download and print it (in black and white is fine).

Mother's Day is Soon - Dazzle Her With Personalized Glass Slippers

I vividly remember Mother's Day being a big deal for us kids.  We wanted to treat mom as special as we could.  In grade school I couldn't wait to present her with my sticky art work or craft that only a mother could love-oozing glue and never drying tempera paint!  As I got older and could master cooking in the kitchen alone, I loved preparing breakfast for her but never for her in bed as she didn't like the idea of food where she slept!  After moving away to join the Air Force, I delighted in sending extra money, flowers delivered to her door, gorgeous LARGE store bought cards and the like.  I was happy to see all those cards when us kids went through her things after she passed away Mother's Day 2000.  I miss her to this day.  Rest in peace, mommy and thank you for showing me how to sew! I know you are proud of me.

So if mother were alive today, I think she would love a Diva Glass Slipper with her name on it. No doubt!   I think your mom and all the moms on your list- including yourself- would love one too.  No matter whether she's a wine connoisseur or an ice tea diva (like my Helen was), she'll love seeing her name, initials or special title of 'mom' (or whatever your term of endearment is for her) embroidered on a her very own Diva glass slipper in her favorite color(s).  

Choose from over 24 colors of satin and thread colors.  Add a bit of bling with a gorgeous Swarovski crystal to match the sparkle in her eye!

Don't forget a cute gift box!

Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous moms and moms-to-be, and others!
