A few days ago I shared on my Instagram how my daughter felt inspired to decorate her white sneakers with Tattly. I can’t remember getting this many DMs with excitement and thumbs up. It’s super simple: Grab a hold of some fun small-ish Tattly and apply them, just like you would on your skin, but on your shoe. Make sure to cover the designs with a clear sealant or clear nail polish. Superfun! Boring sneakers no more!
There are many more Tattly DIY ideas on our blog.

Last week I was invited to a friend’s house and this is the mosaic that greeted me at the entryway. What a stunning statement right at the entrance of a home! The masterpiece is by Sarah Donato. I learned from the owner Jules that they were inspired by Nick Misani’s work.
