Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color! Everything-all-at-once! However, over the years I’ve … Continue reading

On my mind: Quirky Shoes

There is no secret that I have a love-hate relationship with high-heels.

If you liked last weeks DIY braided rhinestone bracelet – today’s DIY rope rings are even easier to make.
