  • Tutorials: DIY shoe clips + no-sewing needed clutch purse

    Last week I had a fun opportunity to be on Meredith Vieira’s talk show sharing a few fashion DIYs for Christmas. I know it’s past Christmas, but I love a good at-home project any time of the year! These two were my favorites and are easy enough for the craft-challenged and even for doing with kids.
