Nail art

Hello there lovelies! You know me and my penchant for nail art, and you also know that more often than not you have to poke up with viewing some of my attempts at it. Sorry to tell you, but this post is exactly that, another opportunity for me to 'show off' my nail art. I so wish I had enough imagination to create it entirely from scratch(I don't as you know,) and I so wish I had just a teeny bit of the talent I see in so many other bloogers out there. Oh well, beggers can't be choosers I suppose, and for all that I'm not very good at what I do, I do try my best, and I do enjoy doing it, so I guess that's part of the battle won already! Anyway Sweeties. Here we go, off on another trip into the world of nail art:

I wish....I wish...I had the a teeniest bit of the talent of some of the nail techs out there. You tell 'em you want a flower, a beach, an animal, you tell 'em whatever you want, and somhow within a few strokes of the brush the most amazing design appears. Oh to have talent like that. It's pretty awesome, I have to say. I also have to say I'm pretty damn jeaous! Even if I did this 20 hours a day for the next 30 years I couldn't even hope to catch up with some of them. Anyway, I'm off to sulk. I'll see you next time. Be safe, be happy, take care. All my love!

It feels good to be back

I'm sure most of you have long forgotten about me and my blog, and I for one don't blame you! My posting has been erratic at best, and doesnt really qualify for faithful followers. So to all of you who have stuck by me through thick and thin, thanks so very much. Another post to follow soon, I promise! In the mean time, stay safe, take care, and I'll see you all soon.

Loads of love.

I know I keep on saying the same thing....

....and the same thing keeps on happening. I promise to post more regularly, then you don't hear from me for weeks. I'm so sorry. So much has happened to me since April, my whole life has been turned upside down. I no longer live in Virginia. I moved to North Carolina as it is so much cheaper to live here. I finally got internet about a week ago. I have so much stuff I need to catch up on, it's not even funny. I've missed you all, and I've missed this blog! I promise to make a much greater effort to post to this blog more regularly, at least it's going to be possible now I'm online again....at long last! Anyway, it's late and I'm going to sign off for now. So nice to be here again. You guys stay safe, and take care of yourselves, and I WILL see you all soon!

Loads of love.
