This was a DIY pedicure using Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips - they're like little stickers that you apply to your nails. The best part - no drying time! This was my first time using them on my toes but I've tried them on my fingernails and they've worked great and lasted. I almost never paint my nails because they chip off within a matter of days. But I even cleaned the house the other day and my nails came through unscathed! Plus they come in cool patterns.
I first learned about these on Alisa Burke's blog - check out her post to see how she combined patterns for a cool look.
I know everyone is moving to the e-readers right now but I still like an old fashioned paper book (and I have so many unread books that I can't justify spending the money on an e-reader).
To make a Miniature Granny Square Bookmark for yourself:
1. Crochet 7 miniature granny squares - use a tiny hook and fine crochet thread (or 3 strands of embroidery floss)
2. Stitch granny squares together in a line.
3. Crochet a half double crochet border around the edge. Weave in ends.
Vintage sandals, thrifted, $3. But what sold me on them were the little cut-outs in the heals:
So I think I may finally be getting back to normal after having been sick. I've actually felt physically a lot better this past week, but mentally, I've just still been in a bit of a funk and having trouble getting motivated. Not to mention, that it seems like my kids' schedules are crazy right now and I'm spending a lot of time running them from one activity to another. Kind of looking forward to summer vacation!
