OBSESSED with Holo Hues!

With going to Humboldt County for Dominic’s birthday specifically to try out most of the breweries in the area, I wanted to do a beer themed manicure.  I took to Pinterest looking for ideas, but everything was either too complicated for my skill level or not quite what I was looking for.  I did so much research, putting off the actual manicure, that I kind of ran out of time to do it.  So, a simple, solid color would have to do.

Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest: The Results!

Week before last I wrapped up my Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest.  I’ll be honest – it was not as popular as I’d hoped.  I had hoped for more entries/guesses.  I even put some money into advertising the contest since I was lucky enough to get sponsored prizes from XShot and iMemories (thanks again!).  In part, I think I shot myself in the foot by calling it a photo editing contest since no actual photo editing was required by entrants, so lesson learned!  In the end I had fun, and, the winners are a pair of sisters!

A Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest!

I’ve decided it’s time to play a game!  This is close as I can get to The Price is Right or one of those huge jars of candy that you have to guess how many pieces it holds!  So I’m going to host a photo editing contest – sort of.  The easy thing is that I’m not asking you to edit any photos, that’s on me.  You just have to guess how good I am at setting up a shot in the first place!  Dominic and I are back from a weekend full of photos in Humboldt County celebrating his 35th birthday, so I have a lot of editing to do!

Catching up on my Manicure Mania

It’s been a couple of months since I posted my manicure mania, though I’ve continued to post them on Instagram.  I haven’t been doing a whole lot that was art-worthy, though I guess they were worthy enough as swatches for different colors.  So, if you’ll bear with me, I’ll try to recount some of the swatches for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Valentine’s Day 2015!

As you may have imagined, it’s been a hard 30 days or so for me.  Losing Winston, then a whirlwind of a conference in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit West 15, then getting the annual “Conference Crud” flu and passing it to my brother and husband, well… let’s just say my Christmas tree has turned into a Super Bowl Birthday Valentine’s Day tree.

Saying Goodbye to Winston the Wonder Pug

I need this weekend to last forever.  I don’t want Monday night to come, but it has to.  I’ll have time for a proper send off into the unknown for Winston the Wonder Pug.  I can’t ask him to keep kicking around for me anymore.
