You will wear them once, they may or may not be comfortable and you're probably going to change out of them once you get to the reception. BUT, they are the shoes you will walk down the aisle in and the shoes you wear as you say your “;I Do's”;. They'll later be stored in a box of memories but for the daymonogram pillow cases, you want them to be special.

I wanted bling. Everything with bling = $$$$$$. So, I found $40 shoes at DSW that were actually VERY comfortable and yellow (matching my bridesmaids dresses).

I decided it was totally within the realm of possibility for me and a glue gun to have an evening together with a glass of wine dazzling and bedazzling my shoes. All it took were some leftover gems from my bouquets I handmade and some rhinestones I picked up from the craft store. (Tip –; use tweezers to pick up the rhinestones, stick them to the glue at the end of the hot glue gun to get “;just enough”; and then place them on your shoe. DO NOT put the glue on the shoe …; you're going to get glue everywhere and probably burn yourself. Which is why the wine is important, here).

A bit of rhinestone action to give the mundane a bit of sparkle!

What about you? Did you do anything special with your shoes?

To continue my discussion of minimalism, I wanted to share how we incorporated it into the?design?of our home.

How gorgeous are these DIY ear warmers?? I love all the different styles you can make from one tute as well. When I spied these on Delia Creates I just had to beg Delia to share the DIY with you, and lucky us, she agreed! Take it away Delia: With autumn here and winter right around the corner, it is the perfect time to make these easy DIY ear warmers! These are so fun and quick to make, you may want to make four…like I did! All it takes is an old wool sweater or 1/4 yard of fleece, scissors, thread, and a sewing machine. Pretty simple. For this one?I used an old wool sweater that got ruined in the wash and became semi-felted.

Being a little sister has its challenges, I see that now. Ameli constantly looks up to her sister, imitates her and wants to do the same things. Most of them she can do but there's one she can't - go to preschool. Although she'll start soon, this September wasn't easy for her. Lily went back to school after the summer break and Ameli wanted to join the kids. I wanted to find an idea to make this easier for her, to make her feel like a big girl. And since she likes packing her sisters backpack, I decided to make her a backpack, too.
