31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic

I’ll be glad to be done with posting metallic nails for this challenge. I don’t like wearing metallic polish as a base colour, but I stamp with them all the time. In fact, just a little while ago, I bought a few more foils from Color Club to stamp with. Yet, this is probably the… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic

NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

So… about the prompt being “rainbow” for this week’s 31DC: I messed up! I did my rainbow nails yesterday to post today, but it turns out that it’s “metallic” this week. I’ll do my metallic nails over the weekend; for now I have a NOTW for you. Mr ACD was away last weekend and I… Continue reading NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

Hello! As they say, when it rains, it pours; and so it is with my blogging this week. I not only posted thrice this week, but the two I did today were rather wordy. Mr. ACD is away for the weekend, and I haven’t really spoken much for two days now; my brain is not… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

Make Your Own Ghee At Home

So…. it’s Saturday yet again and I fell off the write-regularly bandwagon last week, a week after getting on it… No matter, I’m climbing right back on! Back to the point: I have a wonderful, basic recipe for you today — the liquid gold of the culinary world, ghee! Ghee is a form of clarified… Continue reading Make Your Own Ghee At Home

NOTW: Dessert Sands

Hello, folks! I chopped off my long nails on a whim late last week, in the spirit of spring & new beginnings. I regretted it almost immediately, but am beginning to appreciate how I can be a little less careful in day-to-day activities now that I have much shorter nails. This manicure is the last… Continue reading NOTW: Dessert Sands

31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

It’s Week 6 of the 31DC2017Weekly, and I will admit I’m a little glad that I can now stop doing white middle & ring fingers! No one asked me to, true, but I noticed that was what I had done for three consecutive weeks and decided to continue until the end of the colour prompts.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

NOTW: Butterfly Blobbicure

Hello, there! I’ve been getting into blobbicures recently. They are very easy to do and can look really organic & nice. I saw a video by Eugenia (@laqvid) recently — she does the most amazing blobbicures & wet-on-wet manis — and decided to give this design a try: I’m very happy with how this turned out,… Continue reading NOTW: Butterfly Blobbicure

Here’s hoping I can get into a regular schedule again. Today, I’m just sharing some pictures of a baby blanket I made for my… Continue reading Crochet Baby Blanket

31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

Continuing with the accidental trend of white middle & ring fingers for the colour prompts of the 31DC, I made a quick & easy stamping mani this morning. I enthusiastically sent my sister a picture right away, as I often do, and she said they reminded her of diapers! Oh well, as long as it’s… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 5: Blue Diapers??!?!

No NOTW Post This Week & Facebook!

Hey, there! I hope you’re having a good week so far. I will not be posting my usual mid-week NOTW this week. I spent a good chunk of time today setting up a Facebook page for this blog, and have no energy/time remaining. I’ll be back with the 31DC prompt of blue on Thursday! I’ve… Continue reading No NOTW Post This Week & Facebook!
