Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We wanted to share a cool video we recently stumbled upon, from YouTube. Have you heard of red bottoms? Usually the phrase red bottoms refers to the ultra fabulous Christian Louboutin shoes, and their signature red color bottom soles. This red color distinguishes them and sets them apart from other shoes. Well if you are looking for a chic way to make your shoes standout try adding some glitter to the soles. This is such a unique and stylish way to add some pizazz to your heels. Check out this video, and learn step by step how to glitter your bottoms.
Typically when you think of FolkArt and Apple Barrel paints, you know them to be used on craft projects. Well that is a correct use, however did you know that people use these paints on their nails?

Today I am blogging from CHA. We are almost done setting up our booth, and we are so excited for tomorrow. Although we are hard at work here, I did want to share with you this amazing DIY video I recently found on YouTube. Now I know people use Mod Podge on tons of their own craft projects, but I had never seen someone use Mod Podge on a purse. This is such a creative, and easy to do project. After you watch this video the wheels in your head will begin spinning, on how you can recreate something similar. Enjoy watching. Have you ever used Mod Podge on a DIY accessory project?
Yesterday there was an interesting post on Martha Stewart’s blog. I love this blog. There are always so many helpful and creative craft tips and tricks to learn. Martha had CNBC’s Mad Money host, Jim Crammer, on and taught him how to personalize a mug. The supplies used to decorate these mugs included, Martha’s peel off stencils, and Martha Stewart craft paints. Usually personalization of certain items can be a little costly. Well this is a very affordable way to personalize something. This is a great craft to create perhaps sometime over the weekend. Make sure you watch the video, it’s really funny .
