Just wanted to tell you all how much I appreciate you following my posts! I haven't been able to do much in the way of posting lately, but I am gearing up to being better.
Life has been crazy busy but an AWESOME amazeballs crazy! In this past week, I found out that I was able to save our house and I got a job, all with my in-laws telling me I was too much a loser and would never succeed-I'm too much a failure in life in their opinion. So to them I would like to say SCREW YOU! Despite all your wishes and thoughts, I still did it! So there :)~ HA! Ok now that I got that out my system....We also found out that Work Comp has decided to declare my husband permanently and totally disabled which although "sounds" bad, is such a HUGE blessing in disguise. Basically it means he will be compensated for life and social security should also be approved now too! So now with me starting this new job and this guaranteed income now, I think there def is some light at the end of the tunnel for us! YAY!!!!! I think now we can make it! Esp if his family would stay off my back and try to think about MY feelings, I am human, I do have them dammit! And if they knew what an extensive background check it took, maybe they could think that I'm indeed not such a horrible "devil worshipping" failure of a person! But thats for another day. I HOPE! lol
Thanks for reading and commenting!
New nail posts to come!

So, I made my first glitter sandwich! Cant believe I've never done this before! It looks soooo awesome! It is (for me anyway) one of those manis that I cant stop staring at! I used SH White ON for a nice crisp pure white base.Then for the second coat, I mixed some glitter I got from YOU MIX COSMETICS (you should go talk to Amber, she is sooo sweet! They just moved so their shop is on vacation mode but they are still taking orders. They have lots of frankening supplies and they do have color fast glitter) with some clear I had, I think I should name it "Party in a Bottle" cuz there are some many shapes and colors of glitter! Ah its so awesome! Then for the third coat I made a white jelly and it made the perfect topping to my glitter! Ok, so on with pics right?!?

How you be this fine Monday early morning!?! I dont know how to sleep anymore so I thought I better get my fat ass busy and quit slacking on my posts. I have so much done and things I wanna share, that I may never get caught up, lol.
I did find out recently that my bestie Heather is preggo and getting into her second trimester, so I couldnt be happier for her and her husband! They are the luckiest couple I know. It just seems their life is going so perfectly and I am so lucky to have her as a friend, even though shes clear far away in freaking MO! Damn I hate that shes so far away. But oh well, they are happy and succeeding supremely at life that guess I can learn to deal with this long distance relationship.
So, on to nail news...
I was so excited to learn that Pam of Nail Soup nominated me for a versatile blogger award!
Wow, thats so sweet esp since I'm just getting started out! So cool!! However, took me a little bit to figure out how to pay it forward to others and with her help, I think i got it now! :)
Now copying from Pams blog:
2. Let them know that you have nominated them.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Thank the bloggers who have nominated you.
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your post.

I havent stopped with the manis tho, so now I have a few to fall back on if I ever need to.
So I did the challenge for this week from AIS....its Queens Day,
which has been quite a subject in the group. I wish we lived in a perfect world and no one ever got their feelings hurt, but um, ya, thats not EVER going to happen. Esp with a group of women, lol.
But without further ado, here is my mani...the first is a pic before I stamped it.
I used SH Snappy Sorbet, then put on a white(ish) polish and did the saran wrap technique with it, and I liked it so much better! That SH SS isnt a good color for me...but then I used a BPS plate m79 and stamped with NYC Times Square with it. Then to make it more appropriate for the challenge, I used 2 of my square rhinestones I got from Crazy Cart (a store on Amazon) in red and blue, but turned to be diamonds. So, hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

I struggle from bi-polar, migraines, and have multiple herniated discs in my back. I was out on a medical leave from my job for trying to get my self straightened out (whatever that may be) when my husband of only 6 months, got in an industrial accident and nearly died! He was/is a welder and had been working for the union and kept getting laid off due to our lovely economy. So we decided that it might be best if he left the union and find just a regular welding job; so he found a structural job. Then in June, we went through a level of hell that we didnt know existed! Jason (my husband) fell off a second story building head first onto concrete. He had to be air lifted to the University of Utah Trauma center where they discovered he had broken his neck, tore his vertebral artery, and sustained multiple brain injuries and damages. He was in a coma for about a month and in the hospital for just over 6 weeks. Then we had months and months of all kinds of different therapies. We have been receiving workmans compensation and thank god that we did cuz we wouldnt have survived if not. But now, we are so behind that our mortgage company refuses to help us because Jasons prognosis is unknown (apparently every brain injury is unique to every individual and there is no way to know if he can or will ever work again and if so, at what capacity).
So this past few weeks have been a living hell because I have no one to talk to or vent to as no one understands. Jason barely says a word to me ever, like we have 2-3 conversations, i mean sentences, per day, if that. He is so miserable and I feel completely at a loss as to how to help him. I've tried to get him interested in so many things and nothing is working. I started this blog as a way to help me find motivation and a life worth living again cuz I figure if Im happier then maybe that would help him. But with this whole foreclosure looming over my head, and all the stress and pain I myself am going through, I made some stupid mistakes this past week and took a bunch of pills. Of course I know that that was a HORRIBLE idea and God doesnt forgive suicide and I regret it, but I still dont feel any better. So we have like one month to come up with $8000 or we have to move out and be homeless. So is it any wonder that I feel lost and guilty and dont know what to do? I feel like everything is completely my fault (and the families are kinda leaning toward those same feelings i think) and there is no way out. But they are trying their best to help us in whatever manner they can which is awesome. But still $8000 seems quite overwhelming!
Have I complained enough yet?!? I just need somewhere to talk so this is it! And I think that this is why I took to doing a blog so much cuz its fun and exciting and I get to play with pretty colors and fun designs and somehow, no matter how trivial it may seem to everyone I know, it makes me feel somehow pretty and like I have some kind of purpose again. And this is probably the last time I am going to go off on this long tangent. I just thought that maybe a little perspective into why I say certain things sometimes may help make sense. And what better way for you to get to know me than for me to just blurt it out and tell all my dirty little secrets right?!?
So there it is, a little perspective...
Hope I didnt bore you all and turn you against reading my blog cuz that was never my intention. I really just needed to vent. And hey if anyone has any ideas on help with foreclosure I would certainly be appreciative to anything you might have to help us out. And of course if there are any millionaires who just cant figure out where to spend their money, I could def help you out there, lol.
So next time will be a post about nails and beauty or crafts, not this emotional shit I promise!
Again, thanks for reading, esp if you made it all the way thru!
Talk to you soon!

Anyway. I've learned that April is Autism Awareness month
and today is Light it Up Blue!
So to support Autism, we are encouraged to light a blue light, whether it is in a window, a porch light, etc. I was going to put my blue xmas lights around my window but I forgot they were burned out this past year and got thrown away. (a little side note...after my husbands brain injury, it has come out that he suffers from a mild form of autism, Aspergers, and I am trying my hardest to be supportive and understanding but I am falling short. So Im hoping that when he sees this mani he'll understand that I do care and love him and am trying to be the best wife I can :) )
So, I'll show you my blue mani instead. HOWEVER, it is not my design...I got it from Casey at stampaholicnailart. Hers is really awesomely perfect, mine was a first attempt but I still think it came out ok.
So without further ado here is my version...
I used Sinful Colors Cinderella (LOVE love L.O.V.E this color!) as the base and then for the puzzle pieces I used Pure Ice French Kiss (blue), NYC Broadway Burgundy Frost (red), Bonita Neon Poppy (yellow). The stamp is Cheeky XL plate A. Casey put more light blue in her puzzle and I wish I would have done that but I was trying to be a little different...however imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right!?!?
Well, thanks for stopping by and seeing what I was up to today.

I need to get a better system with this blogging thing tho I think. My hours are all crazy! Ive been so sick and cant sleep at night so then I nap in the afternoon and now Im all backwards! Oh well, I like to go through all the blog posts when its quiet so guess it works!
So for todays mani Im going to attempt new things! Yes, Im a bit behind but Ive been wanting to do a flame mani for the Hunger Games (dying to see the movie tho!!!) and Ive finally figured out how i want to do it-a sponged mani, which Ive never tried. Yes. It looks fairly foolproof so we'll see how it goes.I found a great image on Cheeky Plate D too for the flames. Man its 3 am and Im just starting. Pics will have to come tomorrow i think. So stay tuned...
Thanks for stopping by!

Ok. Come on now. It's 630 AM. Time to go to sleep!! But can't stop coughing! Ugh this crap hangs on forever. Or maybe it's cuz I'm too excited and proud of myself to sleep for doing this blog! And already have a comment from Jackie!!So cool! Ok so I'm gonna watch the rest of law and order: CI and hopefully fall asleep. So goodnight all...uh Hmm I mean good morning!
So. I did it. I am finally starting a blog! Im popping my cherry lol.
I've been reading blogs faithfully everyday and I'm excited to see how this will work out for me. I've recently gotten into the world of nail art...mainly stamping but there are other methods out there that I would like to try as well. I've been trying to keep track of Iall my lists, my lemmings, my untrieds, good ideas and whatnot in different notebooks all around the house. But I figured that it would be easier to maybe just put it all in one place and so here I am.
I am going to try to post something each day whether it be a manicure or information I have found about nail art. However, some other topics may creep in there as I do have a habit of veering off topic alot and rambling, lol.
I am excited to be embarking upon this new adventure and I hope that along the way I may pick up a follower or two! I do realize that there are lots of blogs out there about stamping and nail art but I will try my very best to be unique.
Well, hope to talk to some one soon! We'll just have to see where this takes us. But I do love unplanned voyages!
Thanks for stopping by!
