A New Method For How To Make Glitter Sneakers

Today’s project is a new version of my old post about glitter sneakers. Even though I haven’t done a Sneaker Sunday post in aaages I still love them and I still love customising my own!

This is my latest pair of glitter sneakers. You can see the old technique of painting the glitter sneakers in this post.


Rock Style Ankle Boots Customisation

A couple of years ago I did a boot customisation. I took some gigantic boots and cut them down to be nice and fitted. You can see the original boots customisation tutorial over here.

It’s time for the sequel 😀 😀 😀

This time I took some poorly fitted weird boots my Mum was getting rid of and turned them into cute ankle boots!

I made these…


Out of these…


Extreme Make Over- Shoe DIY Tutorial Edition!

This shoe make over was a multi step process, in fact it took me around a month of doing part of it then forgetting the rest to actually complete them!

Worth it thought because they are pretty damn cute!

How To Make Monogram Slippers Gifts – Google Friend Connect News

Last week’s big week is stretching into a big couple of weeks, I think I’ll need a holiday to get over it all 😉

Very important news first for readers who follow my posts via Google Friend Connect.

Google will no longer be offering the friend connect service to blogs hosted outside of Blogger. Basically sucks to everyone who has built a community and the readers who enjoy reading a variety of sites. So around next week my updates will no longer appear in your Friend Connect Feed >_<

If you still want to receive my updates you have a lot of other options to continue reading so here’s a handy list to make the transition as easy as possible:

So that’s it, if you want to continue following give one of those options a try or if you have any suggestions just let me know! I’ll be sending a reminder message via the GFC app later in the week.


The site will most likely be down this weekend and it’s going through some major back end maintenance. I will post the times and updates during on my Facebook page so follow there to keep up to date.


Anyone have any awesome PS3 games they can recommend me? We’ve gone through all of ours and I totally need something to de-stress to at night!

On to something a bit more interesting…

Another super quick but effective craft for gifting today: monogrammed slippers 😀

I made these ones for James’ Mum ^_^

Make Your Own Shoe Clips

Shoe clips are awesome, they’re the perfect way to jazz up boring shoes and use up old craft materials. I am a little bit addicted to them actually XD I got a whole bunch of really over the top clip on earrings at a bead store that closed down recently so I decided to go a bit crazy!

Shoe Clip Tutorial

What you need:

  • Old clip on earrings
  • Something pretty for the clip eg. flowers, leopard print hearts etc
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

Shoe Clip Tutorial

Pull the old earrings apart so you just have the clippy bit like this:
