So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

#FireDazedOct2017’s Spooky Forest prompt that I am also late for. This has not been a good month for being timely. :p Anyway, I have in my hands the Bundle Monster Happily Never After set and it has the image of a baby in a bird cage. It also has several Read More

I’m really bummed that I couldn’t do all of the prompts for the #firedazedsept2017 challenge this month, but I just couldn’t pass up Mushrooms.

Sometimes it happens. You finish your nail art and after staring at it for a day, the thing that’s missing eats at you until you have to do something about it. And my pinkie and ring finger were too plain. I had to fix it. Luckily there were a few Read More

The Little Mermaid

June 24, 2017 Lisa 2

Today’s #clairestellechallenge theme is book/movie. I decided to do The Little Mermaid, but I wasn’t interested in following the color scheme from the Disney movie even though I gave it a direct nod on my thumb. The Little Mermaid holds a special place in my heart. It’s the first animated Read More

The Hedgehog’s Fairy Tale

January 19, 2017 Lisa 2

One of my friends has a hedgehog and he brought her in to work (that’s actually a picture of her below). She was adorable. During our regular morning meeting, she ran around the table from person to person and gave hedgehog love (because he wouldn’t let her disappear up his Read More
