I wish I made these...

I found some great shoe ideas on this blog.

How simple would this be to do on a pair of thrifted shoes with a sharpie? I am sure you would have to go over the artwork a couple of times, but anyone can do it.

Sweetness. Next time I see a lighter pair of shoes in a thrift store, I am doing this.

Another idea...

Obviously these require a considerable amount of talent, but what about using a print or clipping from an art book, comic book, magazine, whatever-- and then superglueing/ then ShoeGoo'ing the paper to the wedge heel?

It would totally work.

Trashion Show!

This past weekend the arts council at my school threw a trashion show-- I submitted a few of my things. There was some GREAT stuff there.

Bunting Banner Curtains

Sometimes it's difficult to decorate a dorm/temporary living place. And windows look rather naked without curtains. Solution? Bunting banner curtains.

The rest of the ceiling from my room:

I tend to overdecorate-- my corner is the one covered in posters, photography and art cut from Goodwill books. In my defense, I sit at my desk and homework it up so I need inspiration and distractions.

Another cheap, decorative love of mine:

paper lanterns and Christmas lights. Best way to home-ify a collegiate room. :)

(poinsettia lights. Lovely in July and December.)

Making bunting banner is SO simple. Here is one tutorial but I feel like it can be even simpler than this.

1. Cut triangles of fabric.
2. Flip the patterned sides together, sew along the edges.
3. Turn the fabric rightside out-- iron flat.
4. Take ribbon, any strip of fabric, iron it in half and then sew the triangles in between. VOILA!

More sweet bunting banners from Etsy.

I really love how the little flags look. :) I also love the view from the window even more with curtains.
