Today begins the Easter Weekend.  Thankfully , the sun is shining and it is warm enough to do some walking.  After my 9 year old and my 5 year old were done eating their after school snack of apples; I brought out my packs of stickers and construction paper and told them to make some pages, hats, or whatever they wanted.  They loved the idea of making crowns and hats.  The house is so quiet and I actually have time to write and work..as well as repaint my nails.

 

Easter Nails

I filed and shaped my nails and I came up with a pastel purple, pink and green look.

On my left hand I painted OPI’s Lucky Lucky Lavender with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in no, 540 Jaded on the ring finger.  On my right hand, I put the same lavender colour, but I used OPI’s If You Moust You Moust on the ring finger.  I’ll be going to my brother’s house for Easter this year.  I don’t have a clue what I’m going to wear but I’m going to be rocking these nails out.  It’s traditional for all of the women in our family to sit down after dinner and paint our nails, chat and watch movies while sipping our coffees or teas.  I know my sis inlaw will expect me to bring my nail polish.

I also bought these Sharpie 80’s Glam markers from Staples on sale for $15.00…

…and from Michael’s Craft Store I bought these adhesive ribbons that  for $9.99 with their 40% off sale.

I was clearing out my studio for some shelving and supply storage and I came to my picture box.  Most of the photos had taken some years of abuse from packing and unpacking.  Since everything is digital, I figured I’d seriously focus on getting these into scrapbooks before they get completely destroyed.  So far, it’s been very relaxing going through my old photos of the kids.  The best part is my brother left all his things with me on various moves.  From his paintings to his old decorations from his old place.  I came across his old pictures from when he was sporting around long hair, driving a Tracker and Keanu Reeves was the latest girl-craze.  I’m putting a page together for him which will be hilarious because I’m sure he’s completely forgotten about these.

I’m looking forward to this weekend with my kids and my family…  bring it on Easter! 🙂
