My beautiful Grandchildren.

Excuse a proud Nanna moment but I spent the day today with all 4 of my beautiful Grandchildren and we don’t often see William (my middle Grandson) and it was lovely to get a picture of them all together. Little Liam loves his big cousin too!


I passed!

I passed my theory exam for my nail tech qualification today!! Only 4 more weeks and 4 full sets and 4 rebalances with before and after photos for my portfolio and then an assessment using my model to do a ‘live’ set and rebalance at the end of November and I should get my certificate!!

Hope you have a great day!

I bought this digi kit from Shabby Princess and have made a calendar as a gift for my eldest daughter for Christmas. It is gorgeous and I may even make one for myself! I am going to use the BIA to put it all together.

Hope you have a great day!

My nail course


Well the first 3 days went ok but on day 3 I was ready to give up I just couldn’t get the hang of it. Laura came in with me to be my model and I had to do my first full set on her. I went for it and actually didn’t do bad! She is now sporting a nice set of permanent french acrylic nails and is thrilled with them! Small pic above. I should have taken a before pic, doh! They are not perfect but pretty good for my first set. I have tons of practice to do and study for my theory exam and hopefully I will pass, get my certificate and then be let loose on anyone who wants me to do their nails!!! I have a few willing victims in the family and hopefully will be able to do mine myself soon.

Hope you have a great day!

Safmat and Letraline

No I am not speaking a foreign language!! I have just discovered the delights of Safmat which is “An acid free, self-adhesive, transparent film for use with your desktop printer. Safmat film is virtually invisible when applied, so only your printed text or image can be seen!” This is ideal for printing text on and then you can place it where ever you like.

and Letraline tape –

Fed up with getting into a tangle with glue and strips of coloured tape?

With Letraset’s Letraline, crisp sharp edges are no longer a problem. Letraline Flex-a-Tape is great for creating consistent controlled curves as well as perfectly straight, matt coloured lines ” This is far easier to control than peel off strips!!

Both fantastic aids to card making and available from Letraset – the clever people who make those fab Promarkers – try some!!!

Hope you have a great day!
