SPARKLE, SHINE & POP THE BUBBLY IN THESE DIY HEELS🎉✨🍾

Let the countdown to New Year’s begin! It’s been quite an interesting year and as we prepare to usher in a new one, I want to take a moment to say thank you to all who’ve supported my creative endeavors in life, here on the blog as well as on social media.

I re-embarked on my creative journey back in 2015 after going through a pretty difficult period in life and through my challenges and pain that I grew closer to God and listened. It was time to put me first, time to get back to my creative work & time to pursue my purpose! I'm still on this journey and still listening and while I know the holidays can be tough for many I want to encourage you to hang in there. Hang in there even when you feel lost. Get closer to God and listen to your instincts because it’s in these very moments you are able to re-ignite yourself and build your strengths. Every experience is a lesson!

DIY - TROPICAL MACAW HEELS

Last Spring my bestie and I came across a beautiful pair of Parrot Heels from Kate Spade and couldn't get them off our minds. As we waited and hoped they would go on sale, I was inspired to DIY a Macaw version of my own.  Yes, you can make these heels yourself!!!

I shared a teaser a few months ago on IG but actually created this DIY about a year ago when I got the patches.  I initially shared it with my family in our group chat and my big sister gave me the great idea to do something additional. I got stuck on the idea and held off from sharing the tutorial while I tried to source additional supplies. I still haven't found the right supplies but with the recent parrot craze popping up in the fashion world, I figured I might as well share the initial DIY with you. This way you can get the look in time for Summer.

DIY - ART-INSPIRED PAINTED MIRROR

My latest  DIY home decor project is live on about.com and is inspired by the work of artist by the name of Chad Wys. His art fascinated me and I found myself poring through his collections and ordered one of his prints online. 

I was captivated by his use of modern, geometric patterns juxtaposed against very traditional artwork. I've always enjoyed the mix of modern and vintage in my home (as well as in my closet) which is probably why Wys’ work struck a chord with me so quickly and pretty soon I had the urge to do a little creating of my own.

Head over to the post on about.com to see how you can create this art-inspired DIY for your walls.

DIY - MATCHING POM POM SANDALS & BAG CHARM

Pom poms, like tassels have been a long time favorite of mine and recently they've been trending like crazy. You can find them on clothing, pillows, bags, blankets, shoes and even jewelry!

Earlier this season I created a video for some simple colorful DIY pom pom heels and today I'm sharing another tutorial for pom pom shoes with a matching bag charm. You've probably seen the trendy brightly colored pom pom sandals around but for this DIY I wanted to mix things up a bit. I decided to use muted colors that would go well with my 4+ year old tan leather sandals. This is a good way to refresh a pair of shoes that you've had for some time.

The basket bags are also very popular with pom pom adornments so I decided to create a matching pom pom bag charm for my vintage basket tote.

You can complete this simple DIY in a weekend and wow your friends with your matching set! So what are you waiting on? Let's get started below the jump!

DIY - WOVEN INSPIRED WALL HANGING

Hello darlings! I trust you're having a good day. As you probably know already, I create a monthly DIY article for About.com focused on home decor projects. I really enjoy doing these projects but sometimes my busy schedule doesn't permit me to get as elaborate with my craft projects as I'd like. I work a "9-5" so I'm often trying to squeeze in as much creative time when I leave work and on the weekends. For this reason, I try to keep my projects as simple as possible. I imagine your life is pretty busy as well so I keep that in mind when putting together these projects. I want you to be able to complete the DIY and be happy with your final piece! 

I made this simple woven-inspired wall hanging for the month of May and it took me about 15 minutes altogether. This piece can add a pop of color and texture as well as an interesting, handmade design element to your space.
