Night Out Shoe Clips

  Clips-1

I needed a little pizazz for a night out. I have a pair of black flats, so I grabbed 2 rhinestone slides from the Buckle Boutique and a pair of shoe clips too. Clip the 2 together and magically a boring pair of flat become party shoes. 

I used the black shoes clips and opened the staple part of the clip that holds the fabric to the shoe clip. I inserted the slide of the heart. I used pliers to crimp the metal prongs tight to the slide.

I didn't even need to use glue. I think a dot of glue would make the whole unit more secure, but by making sure the prongs are crimped tight it isn't necessary. I trimmed the black fabric attached to the shoe clip so it would not show behind the slide.

Sparkly Office Supplies for Back to School!

It’s time to start the new school year and what better way to do it than to add bling to all your office supplies.

It’s a simple project using the Dazzling Diamond Sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique.

I purchased a box of boring yellow #2 pencils, they looked sad just being plain so a quick wrap of sparkle vinyl makes them pretty.

Binder clips in a box are not very exciting but add some glitz and clip them around the pencil can – now they are a desk accessory!

Office-7

Then use the scraps to add pizazz to thumbtacks!

These would make great back to school gift for teachers or an addition to a college care package.

Gwee – Keeps my Glasses looking FAB!

As many of you know, I am a fan of glasses. I have about 10 pairs now and I want to keep each one spotless and scratch free. This awesome little gadget from Gwee makes that possible and conveniently travels with me.

Their guppykeyring is great because I always have my keys with me! Place the keys on the ring and now the Guppy is a key fob, always around to clean not only my glasses, but also when I switch to my sunglasses and even my rear view mirror – which always seems to get covered in tiny fingerprints.

The guppysport not only helps keep my glasses clean but also close by (when I nap, hee,hee) I clip my glasses to my shirt using the guppysport when I nap so they don’t get misplaced. The guppysport can be clipped to hats, clothing and purses using the magnets, which keep it closed and clean.
