Crochet Baby Clothes

I have a friend who is pregnant and I have been waiting to crochet some baby clothes. So, here is my first finished project! A little boy sweatshirt.

I used this pattern.

There is much more to come!

Glitter Sneakers

I am completely in LOVE with these Miu Miu glitter sneakers!
Since these beauties cost a whopping $450.00 at Nordstroms I am going to make my own pair! I saw a tutorial here, from blogger "Honestly, WTF" that made them look super easy to make. Instead of buying a pair of new Vans, I decided to use a pair of my grey Converse that I bought for $15.00 about 4 years ago.

I already started them today and so far so good. I'm using Mod Podge Gloss & glitter from Martha Stewart. I'm using the following colors: crystal fine, hematite, onyx & sterling. When I'm all done I'll post a picture.

Clearance to Brilliance

When I was shopping at TJmax a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the clearance section, which is my favorite section. I found 2 frames for only $0.70 and I had to have them! I was trying to think of what to do with them because I'm not a fame of "GR8". So, I decided to decoupage the first one with some scrapbook paper that I had to match my bathroom. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the second one, but I'm thinking something sparkly!


 Sorry the pictures aren't too great. I wanted to post this so I just took the pictures with my camera phone right now.
