One Zentangle a Day – Week 5

March 18, 2019 Lisa 2

Hello, again! I’d semi-planned to go through a list of all the tools I’ve been using for this week’s post, but I realized with one week left to go, that list could still change. So that along with my final thoughts will be in Week 6. Today we’ll talk a Read More

A B C...Zzz - Hermit Werds - nail art with holographic corals, salmon pink, and the start of the alphabet until kitty gets tired. Zzzz...

A B C…Zzz

March 14, 2019 Lisa 0

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 4

March 10, 2019 Lisa 0

We’re at Week 4 of Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” and I haven’t fallen behind yet. But with several hobbies going at once, I’m not able to do many of the extra exercises in the book and that means no rainbows. The new colorful pens I mentioned last time? Read More

Black Cat Talks

March 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Oh boy do those cats talk. Especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Then they go yodeling around the house as if they are looking for you even though you are where you always are…in bed trying to sleep through their insanity. Now I’m the lucky one because I Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 3

March 3, 2019 Lisa 0

I’m still slowly working my way through Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day”, occasionally drawing the extra exercises when I have time. I’ve been through enough art courses that I don’t feel bad about skipping things, but I may revisit some of them when I’ve completed the full six weeks. Read More

Seattle Tribute - Hermit Werds - nail art for Seattle with a cityscape and the Space Needle bracketed with a smoosh marble in emerald green and purples.

Seattle Tribute

March 1, 2019 Lisa 0

I don’t think it’s fair for me to say a city is my favorite if I have never been to it; so I confess that rather limited my choices of city for #NailsWithIgFriends’ Favorite City prompt. I just haven’t traveled that much. But I have been to Seattle and shoveled Read More

Another day, another manicure posting later at night than I could wish. Well, you’ll see very quickly how many photos I had to edit with this one. Worth it. That’s what I tell myself at night… Anyway, the nail art I piled on top of this lovely polish was inspired Read More

Swan Lake - Hermit Werds - a swan princess and rhinestone nail charm swan on a thermal/solar polish with attendant swans

The Swan Princess

February 26, 2019 Lisa 0

It’s late, but it’s still Tell a Fairy Tale Day for a bit longer! I chose The Swan Princess for #NailChallenge’s Fairy Tale prompt because #GlamNailsChallenge also had a Swan prompt and I thought that made a good fit. There are several tales involving swans in the common fairy tale Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Weeks 1 & 2

February 24, 2019 Lisa 0

As I mentioned at the start of the month, when I picked up Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” I really just wanted to copy the patterns out into my sketchbook after going through a Zendoodle book and doing the same. I’d gone through the bulk of the book as Read More

It’s been a while since I last posted about the bead animals from the old art gallery that used to live at this domain. Today I’m covering the cute little mammals and, of course, I’m featuring the pig since we are now in the Year of the Pig. That snout Read More
