Seahawk fever!

I admittedly do not watch sports until there is something to watch!  I can't do the intense drama of watching every game, biting my nails to a nub and my blood pressure rising all season.  Yes, I watch the news to see how they are doing BUT when the Hawks make it to the playoffs, I'm in! My nails and blood pressure can take it for a couple weeks. :) Now we are Super Bowl bound!

Seattle is the best place to be this time of year!  There is blue and green EVERYWHERE! Seattle love's their Hawks!  I may or may not have the FEVER!

Just a little somethin' I made for myself. Yes, I made some vinyl decals to dress up these puppies!  A little glue, glitter and Shelac and BAM!   (Tutorial Below)

So you want to make your own glitter shoes?  Here's how. (Smooth material works best.)

-If you are going to apply a decal to your shoe, make sure it is exterior grade vinyl. (AND I can help you that! :)   

-Clean the surface of the shoe with rubbing alcohol to remove any residue or dirt. (Just the area where you will be applying the vinyl.) Next, apply your decal.

Time to add the bling!

-Grab some EXTERIOR Modge Podge and apply it with a small paint brush. Work with ONE area at a time.  If you are doing multiple colors it is best to work with one color at a time so that your colors don't get mixed.  I used 2 different sized brushes.  A really fine one to go around the decals and a larger one for the open areas. Take care not to get glue on the decal.  If you do just wipe it of with a Q-tip.  Don't fret if you find glitter stuck to the decal, you can carefully scrape it off with your nail.  DO NOT apply your decal on top of the glitter.  IT WON'T STICK!

-Once you apply your glue, sprinkle your glitter over the area.  BE SURE YOU HAVE A PAPER TO CATCH THE EXTRA GLITTER. (This way you can pour the excess glitter back in the jar to use again.)

-Move to the next area that will be the same color and repeat.  Do this until you have completed all of the areas that you want to cover with your first color. 

-Repeat with each color.

-Let the Modge Podge dry overnight and seal it the next day with shellac.

Viola!  Custom glitter shoes!

Christmas Decor 2013

Ahhh!   I am almost there!  I have been working the last week to get my Christmas Decor up because beginning next Monday I will be decorating OTHER peoples homes.  :)

We have a tradition in our family after all of the Thanksgiving festivities come to an end, we go outside and do the Chevy Chase Christmas lighting!  No lights on until then, but I work hard to have everything ready for the big lighting event.

Here are a few photos of what I have done so far.  

This year I did my tree in Turquoise, blue, gold, champagne, black and bits of red!

This was something I just did today!  I love chalkboard art on walls but my walls are pretty textured so I compromised.  I designed this vinyl to look like chalkboard art and then drew over the outside of the letters so that it gives the appearance of chalk! I love it!

This was a new one this year too!  I made the "JOY" sign.  I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up the wooden letters for only $3.50 each.  I came home and drilled holes through the letters where I wanted the lights to go.  (I started with a small bit and worked up to a size that the lights would fit snuggly into. Thi.s was I didn't make them too big to begin with) Most of the lights fit tight enough that I didn't have to glue them but there were a few that I dabbed some hot glue onto.  
Next, I glittered the letters by painting on Modge Podge and sprinkling glitter over the entire surface.  Once it dried I pushed my lights through the holes and VIOLA!!!  I wired them to my garland and added some twisted braches with icicle hanging from them.  Woohoo!


Here is my bedroom.  I just added a little bit of garland at the Headboard to bring in some Holiday cheer.  :)
