My pet spider

I found this idea on someone else's very creative blog but now I can't remember who. So I did it myself. I've even let me nails stay long for an extra week to make it creepier. Per her instruction I used black craft paint and a toothpick to create the spiderweb. Making a spider on my thumb was my idea. This is my left hand because I was alone and too impatient to wait and have someone else do the other hand so I did it myself. It doesn't look to shabby but not as nice as my right hand work done on my left. Are you confused? I put a final coat of clear polish over the top.

Oh and I totally forgot that I am going somewhere tonight where it would be completely inappropriate to wear this so it's gotta go. Maybe I'll redo it tomorrow.

My Bedroom Set

Sorry I can't get my text in the right place. I finished my bedroom set a couple months ago and I am finally getting around to posting it. I used this painting and glazing methods. I was inspired from this blog I love. It took a lot of work and I wasn't sure that I liked it at first. But it has grown on me and I wish I could find myself a round night stand but for now I have nothing. So my room is not finished as you can see by the mess in the closet area.

The first picture is the mirror that came with the set and even though I think it's beautiful it was too much for the room. Especially since I already have plenty of mirrors. I sold it on Craigslist. I mostly wanted you to see the before color. It weighs at least 80 pounds.

I didn't polyurethane after I painted which I should probably do in the future.

I asked my mom to make me a doily because I knew it would be perfect under a pitcher. I love how it looks.

I've been trying to slow down and enjoy my food since I am eating smaller meals throughout the day and since I have IBS I have to stick to the foods that my digestive will be happy with. A lot of times I am eating while doing other things. Like browsing the blogs I follow.

I tried these new sweet potato fries and even though I haven't really taken to sweet potatoes in the past I love them. They aren't cheap and I finally looked at the fat content and YIKES they are a little too fattening. And turns out I was eating 2 servings at once. I'm sad about that because now I have to consider them a treat. Bummer

Fun Halloween Decor

I found this cute idea for Halloween on this blog. So I painted this frame and mat black and printed it out. That's the fastest I've ever completed a project.
