Confessions of a Crafting Hoarder

I have to admit I'm a crafting hoarder. I try each year to stop it but this time I'm serious...really I am! I'll take you on a little trip about how I came to this design. It all started when I was walking though the retail portion of my employer after a totally legit meeting. No harm in taking the customer elevator and checking out the current goings on, right? So I happen to pass by the designer shoes and swoon over a neon pair of studded Christian Louboutin heels and then a killer pair of studded Prada loafers. It's research to study trends after all and I now know studs are in. I was thinking about how cool studded brads would be and it reminded me of the HUNDREDS of brads I already own which are sitting collecting dust.

So here you have it, embellishment use without abandon! What better theme to do that with than love to the moon and back?! Since these gem brads are totally out of style (good thing I saved them...eye roll) I paired them with the newest crafting trend I love of wood veneer.  Now I'll leave you with those killer heels in red. Ready, set, drool!
