Fun and creative things to do with nail polish...

Ahhh, the weather has changed, and it is, indeed, making me feel poorly. It's ok, though... thankfully the new meds are making it much more tolerable. Instead of being curled in a fetal position, crying and/or muttering incoherently, I'm just uncomfortable and somewhat grumpy. It's definitely an improvement!

Since I'm still not feeling up to much decent blogging, I've been surfing the internet. I've found some fun things! Everyone knows you can use nail polish to paint your nails, but did you know about the other fun uses for it? Erin from Thanks I Made It made a post sharing several other uses for nail polish, including how to make threading a needle easier. I can't tell you how many times I could have used this in the past!

Then Saturday Sequins commented with a link to a wonderful step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own nail polish jewelry! These pendants are both gorgeous and simple- anyone could make their own. Speaking of, I've got a necklace I've long since stopped wearing, and am tweaking it with my polishes right now! Not sure how it'll turn out, but if it works I'll definitely share the end result!

So, while I'm trying to get back on my feet, go check out these fun links! You might even learn a few new tricks!

Til next time!
I love the internet! Learning new things is fun!

Can this weather get any weirder?

I am so, so unamused right now. Some of you may know this, but if you don't, I have fibromyalgia. Fibro is basically lots of chronic pain, and it's affected by lots of things- stress, overdoing physical activity, and weather changes, among other things.

I mention this because the weather here is insane. How insane? Look for yourself...

Ok, maybe it's REALLY cool, but it still sucks.

So yea... I'm happy for the new meds, because I was hurting enough before that I'm not sure I'd have made it through this cold snap without losing my mind. As it is, I'm not terribly comfortable, but it's totally manageable. Plus, I get to snuggle with the husband, which is always good. :D

Stay warm, and stay sane!
Old man winter? You can kiss my ass.
