Christmas is Over

The tree and decorations are already packed away for next year. We had a great dinner of roasted chicken, boiled potatoes, green beans and rolls and we stuffed ourselves. We didn’t have any snow, instead we had to have the AC on since it was almost 70 outside and raining.

Abigail and Spot loved their gifts. Abigail got a new bed and little crocheted cowl. Spot got a new squeaky mouse toy and a crocheted polo poncho. Pictures will be below.

My family knows me very well. Books and craft stuff is always a great choice for me. I got book 5, 6 and 7 of the Outlander series which will probably keep me busy until the new season, a paper cutter that I needed since I can’t cut a straight line to save my life, a large owl and barn themed paint by numbers that will take me awhile to finish, a purple book light and a nature themed adult coloring book!

They also know that craft stuff especially the painting keeps me busy and quiet for hours at a time. I don’t usually touch my phone or get online when painting which is odd since I am a multi-task person and usually doing a couple of things at once.

Nail Polish!

One of my favorite things to do is paint my nails and do designs on my nails. One problem I have is my hands are small which means my nails are small so I am limited on what designs I can do, plus I am rough on my nails and hate putting all that work into them only for it to chips off within a couple of days. I can paint my nails 2 or 3 times a week because it chips and then I can leave it alone so I pick at then have to paint them again.

I think everybody that knows me knows I have a nail polish addiction and love getting new polish, but new polish is a special treat. My family knows how much I love polish and uses it as a bribe.

Something I discovered recently is jamberry nails thinks to a lovely friend on fb. She saw one of my design fails and told me about them and gave a link to a sample. I fell in love with them and they are on my list of favorites now!

Below are some pictures of my successful nail designs:


First Post!

I can’t wait to get started blogging again. I haven’t had a personal blog in a long time so I decided to start a new one. It will take me a while to get use to doing this again, but when I do I will be blogging about all kinds of things like writing my first book (hopefully the first draft will done soon) and my many hobbies and pets.

Here is a picture of my little Abigail to get me started.
