The one with the golden sneakers tutorial

On a recent sunday Pinterest session, I came across an awesome pair of sneakers. They were the inspiration for this tutorial. It's a pretty easy one, without lots of supplies needed. 

What you'll need:

  • A pair of sneakers with plastic toes
  • spraypaint
  • tape
  • optional, nailpolish in the same colour as your spraypaint

What you'll need to do:
Start by taping the front part of the shoes, just so that only the plastic part of the sneakers will be coloured when you start spraying them. 

Spray them, my sneakers needed three layers to cover the white up nicely.

Let them dry well, I left the tape on overnight.

And done are your coloured-toed-sneakers. For a finishing touch I added some golden nailpolish to the tips of the laces. To make them extra fancy.

 New supplies for a crafty date tomorrow

A happy mailbox

 Seen from my balcony

This may not be the prettiest of pictures, but this sure was something I liked. I treated myself to a machine to give rounded corners to cards and notebooks. I was already able to make 'em for postcards, but I had to make them one it a time. Now I can do a whole stack of them at once! Woot woot.

Not my favourite season, but fall can be pretty pretty too!

The one with pretty things (found at DaWanda)

Aren't these all pretty? Have you been eyeing any goodies lately? I think one (or some) of these might end up at my shopping cart. Sometimes things just happen to wind up in there, just like that....

The one with the wall

A photo of this wall was already posted on this blog when I just started out. Last saturday I came across the wall again, and thought it deserved a post of its own. I love that has has been like this for at least one and a half years now, and no one has painted it over. Some of the graffiti throughout the city (even the good ones) have been painted over after a while, but somehow, this one managed to survive. This one definitely deserves to be there, and to be enjoyed.
