Totally Holo

Hey all,
How was your weekend? 
I had a damn good one. 
Can't beat celebrations, art and a winning hockey game :)

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. It's been a while since Vancouver's been bright and cheery, so I wanted my manicure to capture that feeling. Even if the sun goes away (it did the next day) I'll still have my uplifting manicure. And if you know me, you know a sun shiny manicure has to be holographic.

And not just any holo, but my favorite. Nubar - Reclaim
It is such an amazing green, like a psychedelic Emerald City. 
What do you think? How do you feel about holographic polish?

You may not notice, but I actually stamped over top with Color Club - Cloud 9

It's really hard to tell when in bright light.
Here it is in the shade.
Vaugely reminds me of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The tiny tiny holo particles

Let's Spin a Yarn...

I finally had the wherewithal to take photos of a couple of my crocheted pieces! Got to remember to build that portfolio, even if just for my own amusement. 

First up is the manly birthday scarf I made my hermanito. He was kind enough to model it for me.

Looks warm and comfy to me. Yay! 
Makes me feel all satisfied inside.

Next is the lace cape made for Dagadlic. It took 5 months to create and is the most stunning piece I have made so far. I've already decided to make one for myself in a few years, it was so much fun. 
Only one photo for now. Though I plan to post a million over the years. <3

It really is quite a piece. So soft and amazing. I wore it once and totally fell in love. Makes me want to do more crocheted beading like I did on the front. It was so much fun and much easier than I imagined.

My current project is far less interesting. It'll be great once it's finished, but it's basically two rectangles of the same stitch, over and over again. Puts me to sleep at times XP
Anyone have any interesting projects on the go?


I have some new music to share with you today! Last night I got the new Tegan & Sara album, Heartthrob.When I read they were going in a synth pop direction I was incredibly hesitant. I tried to stay open minded and give them the benefit of the doubt. I gave each song 45 seconds and wasn't feeling it. Until I got to Shock to your System. I really like it. And because of that song I gave the album another go. And I listened to that album on repeat all day at work. :O Enjoy!

There's a lot more than meets the eye with these women.
What do you think?

Well I must skadaddle. Hockey game in a few minutes!
Have a great week and an awesome manicure!
