She's crafty

My friend Amy hosted a fabulous geeky crafting day. There was much laughter, lots of food, SO MANY DONUTS and I set up an Admiral Ackbar Snack Bar too! (check it out here) But that's not what we were there for - we were all business! Craftastic business.

What do you get when 15 geek girls get together and craft their hearts out?
Not one, not two, but three different kinds of R2-D2 shoes. From glittery flats, to heels to canvas slip-ons...
Lots of Doctor Who fans in the house: hand painted Tardis heels and glittery flats too...
Game of Thrones is definitely a fave show of geek girls (horse heart cupcakes, need I say more?) and these hand painted house of Targaryen flats came out beautifully...
Star Wars shoes! Painted Toms and glittered flats. Also some awesome decoupaged heels! These are made by cutting up old comics/books and using mod podge. Love it! (tutorial here)
We are all comic reading gals here: leather Batman on heels, glittered Robin symbol heels, stunning full glittered Dark Phoenix heels and even a nod to Adventure Time...
It wasn't all shoes - there were also some lovely comic book decoupaged bangle bracelets made...
As for me, I decided to repurpose a blouse and give a subtle but distinctive homage to the Battle of Yavin from Star Wars. ( how-to post HERE.)

It was great to see everyone sharing ideas and coming up with awesome creations in the end. Such a fabulous day of creativity!

Amy's recap here!

I love this! I've been wanting to do some shoe crafting ever since I saw the video how-to for glittery Wonder Woman flats! Now I'm even more inspired! LOVE the R2's!

OMG, I've been looking for girls like you. I don't seem to know any Dr Who fans in real life! How does a lonely geek gal get together with such like-minded awesomeness?
