Fun Bunny Nails

 So I tried to do cute nail art... note the word "tried", for Easter... but alas, it looked better in my mind. 

My girls love having their nails done so when I saw these sweet bunnies I decided to give it a go.

I did Payton's nails first - in my defense, she was not the most patient customer...
 She did love them though...
 Then I did Maclayne's nail..yep 1 nail.. I'd learned my lesson by then! She smudged it pretty much immediately after the photo..sigh!
 Then I tried to do a better job on me.... yeah, it didn't work like that!

But we had fun, loads of girly giggling and twirling and happiness. So for the girls, their nails were a success and they beg me almost daily to do them again. And even though it's not the best nail art, I'll definitely be trying out new ideas for my girls (yes...and me!)

Happy Easter everyone

Take care

Bead Soup Blog Party No. 8

Yay its Bead Soup Blog Party time again!!!
I joined for the first time last year and it was quite an experience. I enjoyed the challenge and the loved my finished items, so this year I jumped at the chance to join in again.

This year my partner is Claire from Saraccino. Oh my goodness I am so glad she is my partner - I'm now addicted to her style and her creations. LOVE her blog... Love!!!

She sent me the most breathtakingly gorgeous soup!

She has also introduced me to the best ever Etsy store, The Curious Bead Shop. I'm so excited about this find too. 

But look at the most amazing clasp and focal - handmade by Claire!!! Wow I'm impressed, excited,  intimidated and inspired! And of course, could the colours be any more perfect for me?
The purpose of this blog party is to challenge each other and send soup's that will make us think outside the box, but Claire's soup has inspired me just by being all my favourite colours!

 Claire also sent us some yummy chocolate from Germany (um all gone now!) and these adorable handmade (by Claire!) earrings! talented is she?

Mixing the soup....

Here is a sneak peak of what I sent to Claire - colours and materials inspired by the Paua shell of New Zealand.. I hope she has fun with it - I cant wait till the reveal.

So please go visit Claire, say hi and check out her awesome creations..

Until next time... I'll be testing my soup...

Take care
