I am a woman with thread in her veins, flour in her hair and decent collection of glue, paint and bits that might be useful later. Yes, I am Pinterest personified! I love to share my exploits into the crafty and the crazy, so that you too can make cool shit and avoid the inevitable craft fails. My tales are part mythbusters, part you can glue it and part press those seams. But just sharing here on my blog was not enough!! So I wrote a book on how to survive life with flair. I mean seriously, how could keep that stuff from you, I had to share!
But as I may have mentioned (okay, I’ve been shouting it), I am the resident DIY diva for Indie Love Magazine! Yes, I create a brand new DIY tutorial for every issue! And I really love every DIY that I’ve created for Indie Love, so one by one I’ll show them off here and if you want the how to, you can download the relevant issue. And you can download some of them for less than $2 Aussie dollars! That’s not even a cup of coffee! Even at full price it’s under $4. A whole mag filled with cool stuff about independent everything! Books, music, happenings, recipes and of course my DIY’s. You should totally subscribe (and there are several platforms and vendors to choose from) and support this very cool magazine. Indie makers are relying on the support of those who dig what they do. Plus you will hear about stuff before it happens and be on the ground floor of cool. Just click here and get this magazine in your life, okay?
And I want you to know that I’m not just shilling this because I get a fat pay day – I get nothing from this except the joy of sharing. I don’t get paid to contribute or for sales. Nothing. Go buy the magazine! If you want the how to for this DIY, you’ll need issue 3, which has a cover that looks like the one in the pic above…
Sneakers are super functional. They are comfy and all terrain and pretty good in most situations. We all wore Vans to death in high school but we were chatting around the craft table and no one has really worn them since. Mostly because they are so utilitarian looking – but they don’t have to be! You can personalize them with pretty much any decal you can design, cut and fit on the shoe. We also swapped the laces for elastic to turn them into slip ons because no one has time for laces! I know you want to make your very own custom pair….
