So inspirational Color block - DIY

Theis above image from Brooke of just B was on my mind lately, she added a bit of orange fluor paint on her pouch and made it look lovely. Check out her DIY projest on her pouch.
I have seen this clutch over at other blogs and it made me fall head over heels,  it's from Clare Vivier
And because I have been in to fluors lately, I have DIY spay painted my ballerina flats.

                                                          Pictures taken with my iphone.

I have 2 pair of these ballerina flats, they have plastic mirrored noses, so I decided to DIY spraypaint one pair of them. Before you start spraying, first clean your shoes, ad a layer of primer so the colored paint adheres better. Spray them in any color you like them to be and Voila, a piece of cake!

Friendship bracelets

Sorry for being offline for 2 days, after the not being able to upload any pictures, I have been doing some creative things, but I have to admit, I have missed posting, I am addicted in a good way.
So what has kept me busy...they have been all over blogland, the friendship bracelets...
as being a first degree bracelet addict, I could stop wanting them. So I have made a few of them myself.
I will make a few more, perhaps sell them if anyone wants one.
Please let me know, as I love to make these darlings!
p.s. tomorrow I´ll be at the meet the blogger event in Amsterdam!
Enjoy your weekend and come back monday with a smile on your face!

Post with no images

Hmmm, I couldn´t post today, I wasn´t able to upload pictures!
I LOVE to post something different everyday, and I do not have any drafts saved waiting to be posted,
I write something everyday, depends on my moods and inspirations.
But BLOGGER makes blogging difficult sometimes...
Does someone experienced the same problem, or do you know what to do?
I´ll try it later again.
Love Chantal
