Ever since my stepdaughter and I completed a mermaid craft kit together, I’ve been plotting to do more crafts with her since we had so much fun. Egg carton creatures seemed like a perfect project. The cost of materials is small and we eat a lot of eggs because, as Read More

This is a design I’ve been wanting to tackle for over a year now. So when #NailCraziesUnite had a Sweet Fruit prompt, there was no question what I was going to do. After all, I’d already gotten strawberries out of my system last year. Well, as far out of my Read More

I’m back with a new #TheInspirationChallenge nail art. This time we had an image of a model in a skirt with a lot of sheer black tiers. I loved how the bright aqua color of the wall behind her blended with the sheer black on the skirt to create this Read More

Pi Day – 2018

March 14, 2018 Lisa 0

When I purchased Essie’s “Toggle to the Top” I thought it was the perfect polish to represent berry pie filling. It’s this dark raspberry color packed with glitter and so yummy. I must do pie nails with this, I thought. On Pi Day. So for the past two Pi Days Read More

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

It’s time for more #26GreatNailArtIdeas and the prompt is Black and Neon. When neon prompts come up, I plan to use at least a few of my Sinful Colors’ collection. Partially it’s because I don’t have much else, but I also just like them. They are the first collection of Read More

One of the great joys of the holiday season is the arrival of peppermint coffee creamers in the grocery store. Such an effortless way to make coffee magical in the morning. I like pumpkin spice coffee just fine, but I love peppermint coffee even more. Yum, yum, yum. So when Read More

I’ve had these on my nails for three days and I’m only now photographing and posting them. Ah, I’ve gotten so lazy. That’s a lie. Yesterday I rearranged a bunch of things in my workroom because that’s what my heart wanted to do most. I’m really liking the changes. I’m Read More

Phoenix Rising

@kassnailedit decided to run a collab for her birthday with a Phoenix theme. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I jumped on the chance. I even learned something I did not know about Instagram: apparently you can only have fifteen people at once in a chat channel. I 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
