Day 14 – Flowers

Day 14 – Flowers

So I got back to my 30 “Day” Challenge and I am trying to incorporate the holiday season as I do. So Day 14, which is flowers I used poinsettias as my influence.

The top shows my Pinspiration and you can see how I altered it to look like poinsettias. Or tried to, haha.

Kappa Delta Pi

Kappa Delta Pi

So last Thursday was the initiation ceremony for my local chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, International Society of Educators. I am the club secretary and we had 15 new members join us. Our club colors are green and purple which represent friendship and modesty.

Green and purple are from the OPIs I got fir Christmas, and the yellow is one of my new China Glaze also from Christmas.

Somewhere in Oz

Somewhere in Oz

Ok, so I’ve really fallen behind in my posts, I do apologize. So I have several posts to show you.¬†Again I apologize¬† for the delay, these past few days have just been hectic.

First of we have a Buffy inspired nail, specifically Drusilla. I loved the way this turned out, it looked so funky and fun. Drusilla may be creepy, but she’s got great “taste.” Heehee

For Halloween I was Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. I’ve done several Dorothy themed birthdays and I had all the props, and I borrowed the dress from a friend. And other than being a very popular choice, Oz is also a running joke in one of my science fiction shows (Stargate SG1). I had originally done a character on each nail, but they were very blah. So I left Glinda and Elfaba, as well as one Tin Man.

Finally, I did my nails for a Doctor Who convention. I went as Amy Pond, and she tends to go for the more funky nail colors. We had so much fun at the convention!

Canadian Thanksgiving

Canadian Thanksgiving

My girlfriend’s husband is Canadian and since we will all be with our different families on American Thanksgiving and she wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving together we had a Canadian Thanksgiving. We had a good group, everyone brought something, and we were all appropriately stuffed at the end. Kudos Lauren on the fantastic turkey. So I did my nails in a fall leaf motif. I had a maple leaf stamp, but it did not work as planned so I had to attempt a Canadian flag freehand. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!!
