Taking some time

Hey everyone!  Just a quick post...I've got some personal things exploding around me, and I need to take a little time to take it all in and settle it all down.   I'm only thinking of taking a couple of weeks, but we'll see how long it takes me to come back to some kind of equilibrium.

Although no one has died, it's a kind of loss and needs to be mourned.  I do think that it is all for the best, and will work out to be that in the end.  I think I will be a better person for it happening.  Sorry to be vague, but it's not something I want to put specifically in black and white, you know??

So...Happy Halloween everyone!  It's the kick-off for a festive time of year!

T.I.O.T. (Try It On Tuesday) - 10/22/2013

Here we are again - another TIOT post with Gini @ SassyPaintsI picked a neutral this week, but oh, what a neutral this is.  I. LOVE. THIS. POLISH!!  I have become a little fanatical with Different Dimension polish, and this is just another one of her beautiful creations.  It is really new to my collection, but it would not be denied!

Mish Mash Challenge #12: Flower

Hello everyone! So, I missed last weeks challenge post. I did the manicure, but never got around to taking photos. With the holiday on Monday I got thrown off a little bit, and missed the cutoff to post in the inlinkz, fudge it.

This week's challenge is flower.  I'm not a floral kind of won't see me sporting tulips or calla lilies.  This topic is way out of my comfort zone.  My artwork skills are seriously lacking, so I decided to do something a little abstract.  And, crazy enough, I kind of like the finished look.

Spotlight Saturday for 10/19/2013

Another Saturday, and we are getting closer to Halloween!!!  I had plans for Halloween night, and well, to condense it down, I had to switch around my school schedule and am now stuck in class...till 10pm.  A little bummed about that, but I'm stuck, and there is no changing it.

I decided to do some Halloween colors, and with my amount of untried polishes, believe me it wasn't difficult.

T.I.O.T. (Try It On Tuesday) - 10/15/2013

Wow, another TIOT already!  Gini @ SassyPaints sponsors this laid-back weekly "challenge" to give some of our untried polishes a little time in the limelight.  This week is one from Dollish Polish that took me more than a couple of re-stocks to get my hands on, and it is well worth the wait.

Spotlight Saturday for 10/12/2013

Today is neutral day with my manicure.  Grey base polish with a black-and-holo microglitter in a clear base  topper.  It is so sparkly! I apologize for the photos - I took them in direct sun a couple of days ago, and didn't notice until now just how washed out they are.

Mish Mash Challenge #10: Triangle BIG. FAT. FAIL.

Yea, late again.  Sigh....This week was a big fat fail, as I stated in the title.  I wanted to do something different than what I figured everyone else was doing, and I had some problems.  With each attempt, I got more and more frustrated, and less forgiving.  I settled on stamping, and well, NOT the best effort.  I am pretty sure that some of the problem is because my stamper, well, sucks, but my attention span wasn't the best. Who would have thought the challenge of 'triangle' would best me??

Spotlight Saturday for 10/5/2013 (posted on Sunday, again!)

Spotlight Saturday, the Sunday edition.  I'm having trouble with blogger on my web I had to cave and install Google Chrome.  Now it works like a charm...go figure.  I HATE Chrome, but since I only plan on using it for blogging, I guess it has it's purpose.  But enough bitching about my connectivity issues...on to the polish.

This week I wanted to break out my Fuzzy Coats.  I haven't worn them yet, and this one was a...chore...trying to find.  It was always sold out when I was looking for it.  I finally snagged it a couple of months ago, and it sat in a drawer. I can say that of a lot of my polishes - too many, which is why this whole Saturday thing started.
