First post!

I'm so excited!

Finally I came up with this blog.
It took so many time to decide to start this little thing.
Basically I'm a crafting, sewing, painting, doing it myself fanatic.
All my friends keep saying I MUST publish my creations to the web and at the end I tough it will be great to have some feedback.
I want to fill this blog with tutorials on what I do for my house, my boyfriend, my friends.
For this very first post I'd like to show up some of my previous work.

I like to use any kind of materials for my crafts.

Today I'm gonna post my favorite crafts with

paper:



Bon apetit!







This is the pinwheel themed table I made for my boyfriend's birthday dinner.







At least they where nice...
These are some shoes I've covered up with magazines paper... They where so nice... Unfortunately they literally melt down the first time I wear them in the rain...
Update: I'm italian, so I didn't find something like mod podge to seal the paper on the shoes. I had to put some clear varnish on them. Unfortunately, the varnish made the paper very very hard while the shoes where really flexible. So the paper cracked at every step and the water reached it from the cracks.
I have to order some mod podge online... 
Do it! Do it wrong! Do it again (soon)! :)









I simply love this one!




And this is a cabinet... I spent a very long afternoon cutting out all this stuff from magazines... But it was worth the effort!














Enough for this first post... See you soon with a bunch of projects made from a huge variety of materials!

Kisses!

      That made the paper crack when walking. It was a pity! Next time I will find a more suitable finish... Anyway, I'm about to post a project to your link party! Thanks for hosting!
