It's So Quiet

Now Playing:
Buffy The Vampire Slayer

There isn't a whole lot going on lately... except Stu had an interview with PC Laptops... and then a second interview... and then he didn't get it. We were so bummed. =( Please wish him luck in any future job hunting. He's graduating soon and will be looking full time very soon.

I've done lots of Konadicures lately. Just wish I could find a way to make them last longer than a couple days, especially cosidering that some designs are time consuming. I've been looking for Nailene Acrylic Strong topcoat, I think that's the name. I saw it on the Nails by Asami blog, she loves it. But, I haven't found it yet.

A peek at some of my recent Konadicures...

My Nails

My Nails
Silver tips with aqua Konad flowers.

My Nails
I ordered some new Konad plates with birthday money from my grandpa. I got classic french plates (which I did not use here, they're too short) a french plate with lots of different designs (like this bow). I also got a plate with several different animals on it... including this cow on my married finger. I got this plate just for the cow on it... for Stu. (Don't pay any attention to my dry cuticles. >.< )

My Nails
So, I broke the same nail, twice in one day! Soooo, I cut my nails. But, they still look so cute with these white tips with black Konad checker print, which is also on one of my new french plates.

I Heart Aloe
Just a funny... cool, thing. I use Aloe Vera gel as a facial moisturizer and when I squeezed it out of the bottle one morning... it was a heart!

Just Me
Just me. I took some new pics... for fun.

In needlework news...

Flower Medicine Cabinet Knobs
The only news I have is that I crocheted these flower knob pulls for our bathroom medicine cabinet. I got tired of the mirror supports falling out that I substituted for the ones that didn't exsist when we moved in. Maybe I'll write a pattern!

Well, I have more laundry to fold and more crocheting to do before the night is over.

Until next time...

How did you attach the flowers to your mirror? Doesn't thee humidity in the bathroom affect them?

I just crocheted a slip stitch cord, tied one knot close to one end... put it through the back of the cabinet door, with the knot to the back. Then, I slipped the flower on the cord to the front of the door and then tied a knot close to the flower, leaving a long end to pull on. I haven't noticed the moisture affecting them yet.
