Nails of the Day (or Week): Half Moon Mani

I wanted to try and freehand a halfmoon mani, so I used China Glaze Sunset Sail as a base and carefully painted Essie No More Film over it. No More Film is this awesome purple-y blue that I am currently in love with. It is one of those polishes that require only one coat.

I found this bandaid that actually matches my skintone, so it deserved a thumbs up. Papercuts are the worst.


Plaid Cowl

Got this awesome plaid wool blend fabric on sale for only $2.38 a yard!  Usually it's like $15+.  I bought a yard of it with enough leftover to make a jacket for my dog.  I love making these cowl neck "scarves" because they are super easy to make (sewing in straight lines!), long enough to block all the cold air out from your neck and are dual layered so they are super warm.  Plus they are easy to pack in a bag compared to regular scarves.  I think the next time I will make some, I will use two different fabrics so it can be reversible.  And maybe add a pom pom trim just because I want a reason to buy pom pom trim.

My only mistake was not washing the fabric prior to making the scarf.  It smells like fabric store.  Aka kinda musty.  Hopefully it will air out and not smell that way.

I've stopped making new years resolutions,  but I do plan to craft more this year.  I am optimistic that this blog will be updated more.  Lets hope.
