well I've had some spare time the past few days since I'm pretty much banned from going anywhere but school (and I'm really not even supposed to do that but college waits for no one! LOL) due to having pneumonia...and I hate not being busy so I've been completing a few projects this week! hehe. Its never fun to be sick but I've sort of enjoyed my down time this week before gearing up for finals. Not going out to the barn daily has also given me about 2 1/2 - 3 extra hours to my day and I needed things to do to keep my mind off of having to sell my two mares ...so here is what I've been up to!
Project one - paint nails. I'm sort of known for my nails and the odd designs that I do. I've done breast cancer awareness ribbons, rainbows, blossoms, candy corn...all kinds of stuff. This week is candy canes and Christmas-ish colors. I couldn't decide which order to do it in but I ended up liking the white-red-white better than red-white-red.
(dang my fingers are crooked!)
Project two - get and put up a Christmas tree. My parents aren't very big until decorations but I think its fun...so I do it myself! LOL. I bought a real tree this year and let my siblings help me decorate it. We had fun. I also put up our Christmas lights outside...and used pink and purple lights. Dad wasn't impressed but hey- if I'm the one that has to put them up and take them down I should get to pick them! >
no pictures of those though. Its too cold outside ._.
Project three- improvise a blanket for our poor weenie dog x Chihuahua mix who is old and has practically no fur. Its not very pretty because I haven't ever had a sewing class in my life and just used left over scraps for some horse polos I made...but whatever ;D it works right? I was going to just buy her one but her odd shape makes the store bought ones not fit.
she 'helped' me. So did our cat- Thundar the Barbarian.
I'm considering taking off the front flap.
Project four - I decided to do some horse artwork which I haven't done in forever. They aren't great but its my first attempt and tribal-type horse work so I guess they'll have to do! Most of these were done in the hall waiting for classes to start so they're just ballpoint pen and gel ink or highlighter...LOL
this one isn't done but I really don't like the knight. Can't erase it though!
Oh, and some pictures of the pumpkins I carved for my siblings during Halloween just because ;) don't ask about my hunch-back posture...I have no idea! LOL
