Halloween_2012

Here’s the manicure I rocked for Halloween and for passing out candy to the wee ones… and the not-so-wee ones. We had half the amount of goblins at our door this year and we were more than prepared. Last year I gave out 4 bags of candy. In anticipation for a rush on treats I stocked up on 4 bags plus a super bag, which is the equivalent of about 3 bags. Now there is a large basket sitting in the entryway that smells vaguely of wrappings and chocolate. I’m sure it will get eaten though.

For this manicure I used a triangle shaped makeup sponge and dabbed on Sally Hanson Insta-Dri in Lickety-Split Lime in several coats. I used Stickles glitter glue from my art stash and my fingertip to apply the Lime Green glitter. After the glitter was dry I added to thin layers of clear top coat to keep the glitter in place and protect the manicure.

Today is clean-the-studio day… eww! My brain is fogged over from the clutter so I’m off to put things in order so I can start my next project!  See you later alligator!

This Belly Dancer ATC marks day 29 of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month ATC series. Using lavender, black, and gold with a black/purple glitter background this card struts it’s stuff. I’ll be working on tomorrow’s card tonight as I have an appointment for some blood work and my mammogram tomorrow… Oh yeah… flat as a pancake time.

I’m way behind today on everything but it was well worth it. My parents came to visit and we had a great time. I’ll be going to their place after the election to play with paints with Mom and more than likely hitting our favorite variety store.

Christmas is coming up soon peeps… whatcha making everyone? Do share!

Tata for now. I have dinner to make and mail to read. Winking smile

StayTuned

Stay tuned by getting your yearly check up! I’m having mine next month. This jazzy card was inspired by vintage sheet music and glitter foam cut outs I found in Walmart. Super cute, colorful, and crazy fun! I added a 20s inspired choker at the neck. The idea for that came from a book I’m reading. It’s called 1929 and follows three couples through the stock market crash and the great depression. They go from riches to rags… Quite good and you really do fall in love with the characters.

That’s it for now.. tomorrow’s Day 25 in my BCA Month ATC series so drop by for a bit of bling. It’s got an India inspired flair.

Brrrista!

Snowfall

As the leaves turn and the air chills, we prepare for winter by putting away our summer toys and stock up on cocoa. Don’t forget to buy a sweater to keep yourself warm this winter.

Today’s BCA Month ATC is brought to you by the letter S for Snowflakes! I brought on the bling for sparkle and that icy look that brings chills and makes us each grab our hoodies to keep ourselves toasty!

Tomorrow I’ll share my mini beauty haul I got on Friday while out grabbing groceries. I hit Walmart on the way home and browsed the beauty isles for something in particular that I had read up on. I’ll share it along with some reviews and I’ll add my two cents. See you then… until later! I’m off to make breakfast for the famished family. TaTa…Just kidding

Glitter Explosion

While adding the finishing touches on today’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month ATC I grabbed for some old school glitter glue I haven’t used in forever. I noticed that the glue wasn’t shaking to the tip so I squeezed the bottle and it was extremely brittle from age and it just exploded! I haven’t touched any of it … I’m letting it dry and I’ll be using the glitter litter for something clever down the road which should be lots of fun.

Button Up! This card is fully loaded with glitter and sparkly and topped off with buttons to fasten to keep you warm through the icy winter. Lots of gold and pink and brown. Sweet at pie!

Blue Bloomers

BlueBloomers

Happy Friday and Happy Day 12 of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today’s card is called Blue Bloomers. I thought fall was the perfect time for blues/greens/browns. Going from a bright and beautiful world to on muted with browns and golden oranges. This year however, here in the Pacific Northwest our summer was dry and crunchy.Wilted rose  The roadsides are wheat colored from dried out grass. It reminds me of summers at Gammas’ in South Oregon when I was a little girl.

I’m looking forward to some rain Storm cloud to regenerate our NW greens! I miss the moisture in the air… and the pollen being tamed! Allergies this year have me sneezing and rubbing my eyes double time. I’ll be happy when this too passes!

Come back tomorrow for entry number 13 in my double DD series! I’m loving the challenges I face each day with this month long series.

Peace-out for now!
