About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

Another Nail Art pic

While I haven't had much creativity for anything to do with paper lately,  I've been under the weather the last few days, so I decided to treat myself and give myself a manicure.  I was pretty sick Friday night with a fever, but I sat up anyway and painted my nails.  Here's a picture of how they turned out.  I think this would be a good one to do for the Christmas holidays.  I have an idea on how to do my nails for halloween, so when I do them for that I'll post another picture.


The gold was more like sparkles so I put a couple coats of yellow on first, then a couple coats of the gold.  Let that dry completely (I have a spray that accelerates drying).  The I cut masking tape in large circles and taped off the bottom half of the nails, then painted the top half with red.  Let that dry and then used my embossing stylus and dipped the tip into the nailpolish to make the dots.  It was fairly easy to do.

So that's all I have for today.  Once I get over this cold I want to do some cards.  I've bought so many new stamps that I haven't even looked at for a long time.  Plus this new job is taking up waaaayyyy too much of my time.  I've only been there a month and already I've had to stay late 2 or 3 nights each week.  I'm not impressed.

Anyway, talk to you later, and have a great weekend!

ATC Card Swap

Hello!  Well, I've been very negligent in keeping this blog up over the last 4 months or so.  It seemed that when my back problems started I lost my umph!  Well, I haven't gotten it back totally, but I did make something a while ago that I thought turned out really pretty.  I've been involved in  the Stampin' Canada online community for a few years now. They are a great bunch of people and very fun to hang out with.  I hosted the first ATC swap on SC a few months back and it was a lot of fun and turned out to be a nice success.  It really gave us all a chance to work well outside our comfort zones.  Wendy decided to host this next ATC swap and the theme is "the nature of things".  It took me a while to come up with an idea, but one finally gelled in my mind.  Here is a picture of how it turned out:

The picture really isn't that great and doesn't show the detail very well.  I was quite pleased with the results, especially since I haven't had the inspiration to create much lately.

Well, that's all I have for today.  I have a craft date with my niece today over Skype.  That should be fun.

Talk to you later...
