Candy Corn Nail FAIL

Yesterday I was feeling a bit under the weather, so after work I resigned myself to the couch for some romantic movie watching and nail painting.

I have been pinning things like crazy, and I came upon an Offbeat Bride article about candy corn nails.  These seemed fun, so I decided to have a try.

it was.... a complete disaster.

I'm not really good at the whole nail painting thing anyway, but I slathered these babies WAAAAY too thick.  When I pulled the tape off (which managed to keep the orange paint on all but one nail) it was evident of what a terrible job I had done.

AAAHHHHhhhhhhhhHHHHH scary!!

Here's the finished product.  Someone with a little more experience at the whole nail thing would probably have done a much better job.  I had the finished product done for about 15 minutes before the nail polish remover came out.

I'm going to try again tonight for just ORANGE nails.  No fancy stuff.

Root Health Coaching Logo Design

I just finished a logo design for a friend who started a family health coaching business in Fayetteville.  It was a fun project, and I'm happy with the final product!

Here are some preliminary sketches:

The first sketch was the basis of design, which I created on the ipad, then I moved to a more detailed hand drawn sketch.

I used the hand drawn sketch as the base, then cleaned it up in photoshop, live traced it in illustrator, cleaned up the lines, worked on the colors and added text.  Here is the final logo.

If you would like to check out the business, see their website here.

Will the Pandemic Bring Back Blogs?

Over the last several years, I've seen bloggers reduce content, switch to YouTube or Instagram, or simply stop.  I was among them.  I ran a food blog for years, but after the birth of my first child, I couldn't keep up.

Well, that life seems like another world as the cases and deaths from Covid-19, caused by the coronavirus that is tearing across the world, are rising daily.  The White House is telling America this morning to brace for their, "Pearl Harbor or 911 moment," and it's very scary.

A lot of us who deal with stress by processing through our art are coming back to the internet, back to blogs.  Most of us are self quarantining, isolated inside our homes for weeks on end.  I'll be the first to say that I don't have a lot of free time in our endless confinement.  My husband and I are frantically trying to keep our two humans under the age of four happy, fed, and healthy.  We're four weeks in and going a bit stir crazy.  Every time we get a groc…
