Looks like Maxwell Drew Johnson’s creative side is well-established.

People reported that before receiving the Icon Award at the 37th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards on Wednesday evening at Cipriani South Street in New York City, Jessica Simpson told Extra that her daughter Maxwell’s shoe size has exceeded hers, but the 11-year-old has a creative way of handling this situation.

Simpson explains, “My oldest daughter is 11 and she’s a size 10 … so she surpassed me a long time ago … I have all these shoes saved for her but, yeah, she’ll probably use them as a purse, knowing her. She’ll make them into some amazing piece or she’ll do some artwork with them,” adding, “I do have Birdie and she might have more of a petite situation going on. If not, I’m shoving her foot in them by the time she’s like six, just in case, ’cause I did not with Maxwell.”

The news outlet then asked the mother of three (11-year-old Maxi, Ace Knute Johnson, 10, and Birdie Mae Johnson, 4) whom she shares with husband Eric Johnson, what the children thought about her latest honor. She replied, “They’re like, ‘What’s that? Do you get a glass slipper?'” adding, “I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll get a glass slipper.’ ”

People reports from an exclusive chat with Simpson on Wednesday that the singer was asked how she segregates her time between living in Los Angeles and working in Nashville as she records new music for the first time in 13 years. She replies, “I’m back and forth a lot so now they know what it’s like to miss me and I feel very loved,” adding, “They helped me find a house [in Nashville], we all moved there, they picked their rooms, that type of stuff, but they’re in school so I have two weeks [in Nashville], two weeks home.”

In October, the pop star revealed to the magazine about the latest fall drop in her Jessica Simpson Collection. She brought up her plans with her family for the upcoming holiday season. She stated, “My family is all about the seasons — Maxwell is already in Christmas mode!” adding, “She has been playing Christmas music on the way to school, already got a little Christmas tree for her room and is spraying pine scent all over our house.”
