Tangerine Tip Toes

These shoes are AMAZING. And they only cost me $5!

When my sister came to stay for a while, I wanted to make something special and cool for her to show off to her friends. So we came up with these. Pretty neat huh?!

They are so simple to do. If you know how to use RIT dye then you are already have the knowledge to make your own pair. 
If not then keep reading after the jump to learn how!

Custom Canvas Creations

This amazing woman in the 2 pictures below (trying to tempt my baby girl into having a beer), is my beloved Nan Gay (as in Gabrielle). Kind, sweet, caring and Oh so funny. 

My Nan passed away in October last year, rather suddenly. This has been very hard for my family as we are all very close. 

Now the lady in the photo below is my Nans life partner, Lyn. She is also amazing, kind and I am proud to also call her my Nan Pooh (as in Pooh Bear). 

As a child I remember my Nan Gay always singing and whistling the tune to Waltzing Matilda, so much so that she even taught one of their pet birds to whistle it along with her. 
So as a little reminder of my Nan Gay I made a custom Canvas for my Nan Pooh. 

So sorry about the crappy 'Instragram' copy. I forgot to take one on my real camera before giving it to Nan. 
After the jump I will Take you through how I did it.
