It’s starting to feel like summer and I can’t go anywhere without my sunglasses. This month’s wallpaper was inspired by my favorite summertime accessory! All the sunglasses you see here are inspired by actual ones you can buy. I’ve included my favorite pair that I won’t walk out of the house without and some of my favorites I’ve spotted this season. Enjoy!
All of my previous wallpapers are still available for download! For those of you who want to create their own wallpapers, many of my previous wallpaper graphics are available for download on my Creative Market shop in fully editable vector files and high resolution PNG files.

I’m back home in Venice for the long weekend and boy did I miss this California coastal weather! After spending a week in Miami and the Florida Keys, I remembered just how much I don’t enjoy that humidity. But I did enjoy all that sunshine and time spent in the pool!
Get in maker mode this weekend and try one of my favorite DIYs from this week!
Can you believe you can make this clutchwithout sewing?!
I’m loving how enamel pins and vintage brooches are making a come back. When I was a kid I would collect pins and brooches and wear them all on my jacket at the same time. Today I’m sharing a fun DIY for a more grown up, but still playful, way to make your own shimmery gold leaf resin heart pins.
The secret to making these cute pins is using a silicone heart shaped mold. And since you can easily make multiples at once, these cute pins make great gifts. They would also make adorable fridge magnets too—just glue a round magnet to the back of each one instead of a brooch bar.
Pour 1 oz. of resin into a small plastic cup. Pour 1 oz. of resin hardener in a separate cup. Then pour the resin into the hardender.
Use a popsicle stick to stir the mixture for 2 minutes. Add a pinch of gold leaf flakes and stir until they are incorporated.
Set the resin mixture in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes. This will help remove most of the air bubbles.
Remove the cup of resin from the water and carefully pour the mixture into the heart molds filing each cavity half way. All it to dry for 24 hours. The resin will settle in about 30 minutes and the majority of the bubbles will disappear.
Once it’s dry, pop the heart pieces out of the mold. Use craft paint to paint the back side of each heart. Allow it to dry completely.
Use super glue to adhere a brooch bar pin to the back of each heart and then it’s ready to be worn!
I kicked off the weekend a little early this week because I’m down in Key West with two of my blogging bffs, Rachel and Carrie. You can follow our Florida adventure on Instagram and on Snapchat (I’m @sarahheartslove).
