Blog-cation and what I’ve been crafting!

BLOG-CATION 

Ello Loves!! I seem to have taken an unintentional blog-vacation for the past few weeks but summer time is unavoidable for fun and laziness, ….and summer time in TEXAS is nearly unbeatable (specifically when you find your local pool!) wpid-img_20150619_191243237.jpg

Summer has come and stayed in my neck of the woods (which really isn’t wooded at all) but I do get humongous woodland creatures from time to time. such as this mammoth sized butterfly. I could have reached out and let it crawl on to my hand it was so close. But alas, the heepie geebies of having something crawl on you prevented that, I promise you!

CRAFTING

Since having almost nothing require my brain to work any harder than channel surfing, I’ve had a boom in creative and crafty urges to tempt my procrastinator soul. I’ve cracked out my old sketch book and compass, bought watercolor pencils and paper, made my own travel sketchbook, created a few Harry Potter crafts and even bought a quill and inkwell of India ink.

I have never been the best at drawing but my mind won’t stop trying to make it a thing. I also have terrible penmanship, but again, my hands won’t stop trying to improve. I’ve realized using a quill and ink makes my cursive bearable. WHO KNEW!? I also feel like I’m writing love letters to a time traveler every time I bust out my DIY Suede covered journal.

I’ve also taken up acrylic nails again. These poor minuscule natural nail beds of mine aren’t cutting the amount of nail polish I want to wear! Thanks to a cheap bundle kit from Amazon, I now have plenty of excuses for doing nails every single day….I have even converted my ‘Halloween severed-hand’ into a chic silver practice hand/client, named Toby. He loves to get his nails done, I tell ya! He’ll just sit there for hours and let me paint!


Looking forward to getting back into the groove of crafting and blogging. Hope everyone’s had an amazing summer so far, and can’t wait to get back to school!
