Flower Nails

No, I’m not talking about a manicure. I’m talking about actual nails. Are these not just the cutest thing?

Found over at one of my favorite blogs to skim Likecool.com (who will send you to the original link that looks to be all in Japanese).

My first thought of course is, “oh, I should make some of those”.  See? I’m just as bad as those people that come up to my booth and say “I can make that myself.”

*All they are” are regular nails that have the heads ground away to be flowers, right? Mm hm. I would only need to get what is needed to do the grinding. So, I’m thinking it would be much easier to buy a pack (if I could read Japanese at the site).

These are just a perfect solution for me, the “I-want-to-hang-it-now-and-I-don’t-care-what-the-nail-looks-like-when-it-shows” person. ::sigh::  I so need decorative help.

Current project…

I’ve been busy…haven’t we all?  Trying to jump back into my business which once included blogging, didn’t it?

This is the upcoming, “fun-while-I’m-on-weekend-vacations” project:

Unfinished guitars and guitar parts that the Sugah Daddy painstakingly hunted down on eBay.  Ready to carve, paint and otherwise embellish.  Can you imagine a whole wall display with these things.  They’re pretty funky as they are but we’re going to funk them up more.

SharpieFest

Have you been seeing all the cool Sharpie promotions on tv?  This is really strange.  I started my doodle series with Sharpie markers before I knew this was coming.  Now, seeing their cool blog and commercials I’m re-inspired.  I want to Sharpie the world.  But, until I get some bolder tipped markers I’ll just show you want I’ve been up to since my last doodle post.

I’ve wanted to and have tried to incorporate words and sayings into my bead art however, was never quite successful. Now I can use my Sharpie art as that outlet.  Classic black and white (and a little gray).  You can’t go wrong.

Adding a little color in a striking way.  Not my usual interest but that turquoise sure did inspire me to try more.  And here is what I’m working on now:

I think I’m getting the hang of it, don’t you think?
