Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things

 Wow... I've actually managed to stay awake for more than three hours at a time! Siri is back to her independent, lovebucket self, and her tests all came back fine. I'm wondering if she got into something she shouldn't have. Unfortunately, there's no way to know, so we just have to watch her and hope for the best. But she's back to her old self, so I'm much less worried.

Also, since I've managed to be awake for more than a couple of hours I've got my nails painted and I've got a series of nail art nails in progress. I'm experimenting with a strict color scheme, and it's actually a lot of fun! We'll see how things come out... so far, I'm actually having fun!

I have to share something with you guys. I guess the stress of the last few days had me looking for ways to distract myself. I spent a heck of a long time on Instructables looking at things like how to make a wig like they wore in the musical Cats and how to make an embroidered felt hair clip. I looked at 9 things to stuff a baby into for Halloween, and laughed myself silly over it.

Then there are the online shopping sites. Oh man, it's probably a good thing I'm broke, because if not... well, I'd be broke from all the shopping sites! First off, Etsy... oh Etsy, how I love you! Hair thingies galore... an embroidered appliqued felt hedgehog barrette! Silk roses to clip into your hair! And as if that's not bad enough, my friend Din started sending me links to shoes and handbags... she's got a serious thing for marc by marc jacobs. When she sent me this link for marc jacobs handbags I'm not sure who squealed louder, me or her! These are so freaking sublime.

And see, I don't understand it. I'm a jeans and tee shirt girl. I wear my kitty shoes and a ponytail most of the year. What do I need with a bag like this? I carry lots of things... I couldn't put my art supplies and sketchbook in that bag! And yet...

... it's a thing of beauty, isn't it? It's probably a good thing I don't have money to spend right now. If I did, the neighbors might think I'm having an affair with the FedEx guy!

Til next time...
