When was the last time you received Surprise Steampunk Sunglasses in the mail? I’m going to go out on a limb and say “Never!” However, I can tell you in all honestly that I received a pair just last week.
My talented and sweet friend, Candy Colwell, salvaged my broken sunglasses after a day in the city together last summer. We spent a fun day in NYC, hitting the flea markets and Central Park. My sunglasses were old and when they broke I threw them away. Little did I know, Candy did a little dumpster diving and retrieved them. She had STEAMPUNK on her mind.
What’s wrong with my vision?!?!?
Here’s a pic Candy took of me when they broke… I had put them on and thought I was stroking out a bit before I realized a lens was missing. We were cracking up but she had me keep a straight face for the photo. Now I know why… she was already plotting for a future blog post!
Imagination is the key to Creativity
Perhaps our visit to John Lennon’s memorial sparked Candy’s idea. She’s so creative! I love altering things, but it didn’t even occur to me to save those broken shades.
Want to see how she did it? Candy shares a step-by-step tutorial of this transformation over on the DecoArt blog. Her attention to detail is amazing!
Surprise Steampunk Sunglasses
And here I am with my funky new Steampunk Sunglasses. I will find a special place to display them… they are just plain awesome.
Thank you so much, Candy! You have touched my heart with this special gift and I will treasure it.
