Glitter and Glam…need I say more? I’ve had this DIY in my mind for a really long time…I’ve even had all the supplies picked out and stashed in a project box! I’m so glad that I finally executed it because I am in love with all of these Jimmy Choo (and Badgley Mischka) inspired shoes! I hope you love them too!

DIY: Flocking, it’s not just for hair!

I know it’s been awhile, but as the saying goes, better late than never! I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy sharing with all of you and wish I could do more! I have so many ideas!

We are approaching Spring and it should be all butterflies, baskets, and weddings…but while embarking on my latest obsession of re-rooting and flocking hair, it dawned on me that flocking could be used for some fashion accessories, namely shoes (to mimic suede or velvet)!

I know how much you all enjoyed my other custom shoe and accessory DIY’s in the past, so here’s my latest! Enjoy!

Summer Doll Holiday

IMG_1954As many of you know, it takes a lot of time and energy to keep cranking out DIY tutorials  and blog posts when you have a more than full-time job and responsibilities. As much as it makes me happy to craft and share, it is not where I need to be focused right now.  Bruni & I are going to take an unofficial break from regular postings and tutorials for some or all of the Summer. It’s a shame since the blog is really starting to take off, but we are all faced with tough decisions on a regular basis. Many are busy with kids during the Summer, so you may not have time to craft anyway, so it will be a good time for me to limit my posts and not commit every week to a new feature.

Doll Style: Custom Accessories

IMG_0339

Mattel has really pulled through with on trend accessories, but many times the colors are still a little off for the true Fashionista! Personally I like items to look as real as possible and bright colors aren’t always what I go to first. This is where customizing comes into play. There are so many ways to give these plastic accessories a more realistic look to complement your favorite outfits. In this post, I will be focusing on just adding touches of paint to go from bright to right!
