Before and After: Removing Sales Sticker from Shoes with Soft Leather Soles

Sales stickers are annoying to remove and will leave a sticky adhesive residue if you just peel them off, right?

Last time looked into finding best way to remove the sales sticker (ahem, especially Nordstrom Rack price tags), I found a lot of ideas but nothing specifically showing it done on the soft leather soles (the kind that feel like suede) or any "after" photos.

Everyone likes a good before and after photo!


This led me to share my own experience and post plenty of photos so you can make your own decision (check out my first attempt here).  

This time I am trying out a new method, used on the shoe above.

Sewing Reveal: Modern Scrappy Baby Quilt & Link to Free Tutorial



Finished this somewhat modern scrappy baby quilt recently from a free tutorial I found via Pinterest (link below).  I even appliqued the baby's name on the back of the quilt - my first time to applique!  And the binding is actually stripes of all the fabrics used on the front.

After Photo with Dining Room Updates

The updates to the dining area came together relatively quickly that I just realized I never posted an "after" photo after my previous post.  This is the dining room as it is today after updating three elements.

Ch-ch-changes to our Dining Room

Minor updates to the dining area have started to happen around here (and I stress minor!)

While the room was functional, it has never felt finished to me so my most recent focus was to try and give the dining area the attention it deserved.

Items to be addressed:
1) Change light fixture to one that's more to scale
2) dining chairs to something more comfortable and in a more updated fabric
3) hang something on that poor empty wall
4) centerpiece for table


Below are the items I've purchased so far.

Creative Goals for Me & My Home

A few projects have been dancing in my mind lately, but since I have been traveling recently, they haven't gained any ground. 

These are my optimistic DIY goals for decorating and sewing in the upcoming 2015 year...
