Nail Polish Storage

Here's what I found to hold my nail polish. So far it's big enough to hold it all. I know it won't be for long. I found it at K-Mart in the kitchen storage area, for about $8. I like that the bottles can stand upright and I can see everything.

I've been bitten by the Nail Art bug!

So it's been a few months since I posted, not that anyone is actually following LOL

Here's my latest obsession!

These 2 are for Cartoon Week at work. First up the alien from Toy Story. The other fingers are Konaded with the clouds, kinda reminded me of Andy's room. The other thumb has "The Claw" on it, but it refused to be photographed. I'm gonna change them at least twice this week LOL

This one I did for when I took K to her Dad's this year. I saw the tutorial for this butterfly wing and fell in love. I think it came out pretty good!

The last 2 are from when I went to see Bat Boy. It was my first attempt at the bat and I don't think I did too badly. I needed something else on my other fingers, so I dotted them :)

I hope you like them as much as I like painting them.

Oh and yes they are my real nails!

I'll say it again... Ice is NOT nice

We got walloped again last night with another winter storm. This time Mother Nature decided to give us ICE. The forecast called for 1/4" of ice over night and then another 1/4" during the day today. Yup, we got it!

We lost power here about 4 AM and it was off until about 10 or so. Poor K kept coming into my room (where I was bundled up in my bed) saying she was bored. LOL I told her to read or color or play a game, but nothing was helping. I don't think she would have made it in the pioneer days :)

Here are a few pictures of the trees and such around here. It's beautiful, but really scary standing outside and hearing all the limbs breaking and the ice creaking all around.

This one was taken through my bedroom window. We have another icicle on that side of the house that's even longer and thicker!

Here's a tree on the south side of the house. You can see some of the broken branches from the Evergreen that's next to it.

Just a close-up of one of the same tree. It's SO pretty like this.

And lastly, the bush right out front. I just thought it looked really cool all capped in ice.

Just another day...

Not much new and exciting is going on here (unless you count the weather). More snow, more ice, more sleet, more freezing rain etc... Most likely no school again tomorrow. Hopefully they will cancel it BEFORE 8:30 this time!

Here's what the wonderful plows left behind for me to clean up last week!

Nice huh?!?! That's 6 FEET between my car and the plowed lane that I had to clear all by myself. Yes, I AM whining. I ended up hurting my back while I was doing it too. :(

I really want to scrapbook again, but that means I have to find my desk. I know where it is, but I can't see even 1 square inch of it's top. One of these snow days I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and clean it off. I'm not allowed to buy any more stuff until I use some that I already have, so I'd better get a move on and do something!

School is going well. So far I have A's. It's not hard, just time consuming.

That's about all for now. Hopefully I will have something more exciting next time.

2 Hats and a Scarf

This week while still working on Mom's bag, I also ended up having a birthday gift to make. My daughter's babysitter's birthday was Sat, so I needed a gift. She had commented on a crocheted hat I made for K, so I decided to make one for her. Well it wasn't finished in time for the party, but I'll see her on Tuesday.

Here's the hat I made for K:

It's kinda reminiscent of the Flapper hats, but a bit different. I LOVE the giant flower, so does K!

Here's the hat I made for Erin. Of course I couldn't stop with just a hat, no I had to make a scarf to match too!

It's hard to see in the pics, but the hat has ridges running down it, kinda gives it a neat texture without being too much. I also added a crocheted rosette, which I think just makes it!

Here's the scarf. If you need a quick and easy scarf, this pattern is perfect. I was able to finish it in one day.
Here's them both together. Her coat is a light turquoise color, so I thought the mixture of colors in this yarn would go nicely with it. Please excuse the horrible pictures of me. It's really hard to take pictures of yourself and have them turn out ok.

Back to School (again)

Today I go back to school (again). This fall I went back to college. It's been 16 years since I set foot in a classroom for the purpose of learning. I needed a change, I needed something more for my life (and my daughter's life), I needed to better myself, so off to school I go.

I am going for Medical Assisting. So far I have had 4 classes, Medical Terminology, Keyboarding, Medical Office Practices and Intro to Computers. I got A's in all of them :) I guess going back with a purpose and with focus really does help.

This block I have: Supervision (whatever that is), English, Medical Billing, and ugh Math. The only one I'm worried about is Math. Although I already spoke with the teacher and he said he doesn't teach any of that "New Math". So that's a good thing.
Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
