I love Gudetama. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s a character owned by Sanrio (i.e. Hello Kitty!) that appears in short animated videos played in Japan. He is a very lazy egg and doesn’t want to get up. They’re really cute videos as long as you don’t watch them Read More

Roald Dahl’s The Witches

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I grew up reading Roald Dahl and my three favorite books of his are Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, and The BFG. I was never fond of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory books and enjoyed Matilda but… I had my sister looking out for me so, while I was Read More

The Langoliers

October 28, 2017 Lisa 4

I binge on Stephen King for a while and and then not pick up a book by him for years. He’s such an amazing storyteller, but he does tend to kill a lot of his characters and I tend to like a different kind of world building. LOL (Someday, however, Read More

Take Me to Harry Potter’s World

October 4, 2017 Lisa 0

This is my first time participating in #manicollabs on Instagram. The prompt was Inspired by a Country You Would Like to Visit and I asked if it had to be a real country. They said ‘no’ so then I spent time thinking about a recognizable and cool land I would Read More

KARA’s “Step” and Quietly Floral

September 27, 2017 Lisa 2

It’s the 27th day of the #31DC2017 and I am finally caught up. Also, I am tired because instead of keeping things simple, I decided to make really complex advanced stamping decals. Like an idiot. #31DC2017 – Inspired by a Pattern (Day 26) #Clairestelle8Sep – Metallic (bit late, oops) #FireDazedSept2017 Read More

Star Wars and Gardening Book

September 26, 2017 Lisa 0

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

Can’t Hug Every Cat

September 22, 2017 Lisa 4

I was going to do a different song for #31DC2017 Inspired by a Song, but with my cat’s brief disappearance this month, I am a little obsessed with cats right now. Plus, I’ve loved this song ever since one of my co-workers added it to our group playlist. Can’t Hug Read More

Rita and Runt (Tsum Tsum)

September 17, 2017 Lisa 0

This ended up being a perfect storm. It started when I decided I wanted to do the monthly prompt for #NailAddictsCollab of New Skills. If you’ve been following along, you’ll notice that I have done quite a number of things for the first time lately (buffing holographic powder into gel Read More

The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini

September 13, 2017 Lisa 2

I really admire the whole vintage Bettie Page-esque look. I occasionally come close to wearing it, but I am too lazy with hair and makeup (and my hair is too long). So I was really excited when #firedazedsept2017 included a Bettie Page prompt. Since I had to combine it with Read More

Fantastic Mr. Fox

September 12, 2017 Lisa 4

I ended up swapping out days so you’re getting the Fantastic Mr. Fox early, thus covering both Stripes (#31DC2017, day 12) and Inspired by a Garment (#nailchallengecollaborative). And I know the expectation for Inspired by a Garment is generally something from fashion week or whatever. I’m sure that would boost Read More
