Resin, art, and nails

Resin, art, and nails

My first project with #artresin: coating this little flower painting Fleeta gave me to turn into a coaster. I didnโ€™t use enough art resin and it has a few bubbles. Perhaps I should invest in a small torch? ๐Ÿ”ฅ
My first project with “Art Resin”–which I requested for a Christmas present. Coating this little round flower painting that Fleeta gave me. There were a few bubbles–I ordered a cheapie creme brulee torch today that should resolve that issue.

The Google Arts and Culture app has decided that this is the work of art that looks the most like one of my selfies. Hmmmmm.

These nails...I want these nails. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒธโœจ(thanks @tracykawaii)
Kind of obsessed with these handpainted floral nails. I could do that, right? Seems simple enough.

January walkies.
How many shots of dog butts at the park have I amassed over the years? 5543587?

Joshโ€™s new calf tattoo by @parlorftattoo. Josh designed it; and then Owen Owen-ized it.
Here’s Joshy’s latest tattoo, courtesy of Owen. We both thought it turned out real nice.

Babyโ€™s first trip to a tattoo parlor.
Baby and I only lasted about an hour at the tattoo parlor. Too many breakable art objects at floor-level…not to mention Owen’s cranky elder dogs that were NOT stoked to have a baby try to grab them.

Doggy door! At the Pound Arts Studio.
Now that laser tattoo removal is a thing I may just have my crappy old tattoo removed and then pretend to be a VIRGIN again.

I bought Goo this โ€œfirst wordsโ€ book because I love the bright colors against black.
I bought the baby this first words book specifically because I love the bright colors of the objects against black…but I think I might like it more than he does. For now.

Looking for a blue velvet Hanukkah dress?? Look no further!
Looking for just the right blue velvet dress for Hanukkah? The Goodwill in Lynnwood has what ya need! I also found a great little stretchy sun dress from Patagonia for Maui, but 19.99?? I think that may be the most expensive item I’ve ever bought at Goodwill.

Saturday morning paint-while-baby-naps session. ๐ŸŽจ
Paintings in progress. I’m nearly done with the teal love VW painting and Christopher’s blue sugar skull.

Love the colors in this picture of Marilyn.

This is an older picture of Maggie dog that randomly showed up in my “favorites” collection. Neither Josh nor I recall that stuffed animal. Clearly it didn’t last long!

Baby relaxing.
Here’s Baby Goo doing calisthenics on a dog bed. He’s playing downstairs with Josh while I type out this blather. Josh has been sick all week and was finally TOLD to stay home today by one of his co-workers. It’s a Christmas miracle that the baby and I haven’t caught it yet.

A little rainbow inspiration this Monday ๐ŸŒˆ (thanks @lisamcconniffe)
This is not my photo but isn’t it nice? I hope we see sea turtles in Maui this year.

The faux fur was 40% off so I couldnโ€™t resist buying this aqua Minkie Iโ€™d been eying for months, with cute whale flannel to go on the other side. Does Goo need another baby blanket? No, but maybe I do. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ
I cracked when I saw that the faux fur was 40% off and bought this aqua minkie I’d had my eyes on for ages. I also found this adorable whale flannel to go on the other side for a cute baby blanket.

Today is my 10 year anniversary of quitting booze. In 2008 I quit drinking, got engaged, lost 40 pounds, and got marriedโ€”in that order. My life is a million times better than it was back then, and I wouldnโ€™t have any of what I do today if I hadnโ€™t gotten
Here’s me at the gym, water in hand, celebrating my TEN YEARS OF SOBRIETY FROM BOOZE WOO HOOOOOO! Ten years of not drinking. Ten years of turning down drinks, at Burning Man, at art shows, at house parties. Ten years of water and coffee! It works if you work it, babies.

One of my favorite Vogue covers ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’š
I have always liked this Cecil Beaton cover of “Vogue”.

Hey, it smells like dog breath around here.
Hey, does it smell like dog breath around here or what?

Plump seagulls on the Everett waterfront.
Just sittin’ on the dock of a bay, wasting tiiiiiiiiime…

Felt like a purple glitter shellac today. ๐Ÿ’œโœจ
My nails today, because I was in the mood for purple glitter shellac and by GUM, that’s what I got. Catch yer later.
