Sassy Steps - Shoes on Tour - It's a crazy idea but brilliant ! !
Artsy designs on a gently used pair of high heel stilettos are now show-offs making a
statement about how people, careers and objects can be reinvented. Crazy but true story!
"Don't give your shoe the boot, Axent your soles." says refurbishing artist, Diane Axent.

This fun pair of shoes have folks talking about when they went step over step in shoes that traveled countless miles, and like them, had many lives.

Originally a light tan color; painted fancy now and on a long road trip visiting one Canadian home at a time. Eventually they will go traveling to foreign Hosts in other parts of the world - wow! - seriously!!

Erica (Diane's daughter) named her mothers recycled art shoes, Sassy Steps, which indeed they are. Sassy and wearable if you dare. Complete with their own Adventure Travel Documents signed by elected Politicians and appointed Community Leaders who support what the shoes have stepped out to do.

Digby, Nova Scotia is showcasing its rural sector as a place where good things happen, visitors are welcome, minds are easily inspired, soles have soul and people are loads of fun!

Shoes have a travel binder of instructions suggesting they might be a hoot as party wear, at lunch, showing up at work, sitting around the office or showing off on a door stoop. Maybe be the sole in a shoe story, do day trips, attend a class or be a special guest at dinner or tea time. Their potential for fun is endless and ideas will come with a "how to pull it off" set of instructions / guest handouts.
Shoes really WANT to visit your home. It's easy - just use this site's
e-mail to send in your Host request to be added to their touring agenda.
Shoes don't want to wear out their visit so 2-3 weeks is a good stay.
Hosts will know where to send the shoes to next by simply following their travel binders road map plus by keeping in touch by e-mail.
Before Sassy Steps leave for the next destination a Host could do a short and easy recap on the shoes visit - maybe take pictures - post 'stuff' in the binder.
Each Host will receive promotional gifts provided by the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada, a shoe gift from their refurbishing artist and eventually their book. Free - - your priceless memories of this Canadian adventure shared around the world.

Anyone can submit a story for the book. You don't have to be a writer and a submission guide will be provided. Permission is required for your story to be included in the "Sassy Steps on Tour" book being published at tours end.

"Since 1992 I have had countless opportunities to reinvent myself as a result of receiving many life-saving pacemaker implants. The Sassy Steps on Tour project wants to help those who have been changed by heart disease. It will give 50% of book sale profits to The Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation."
