Google Reader Death

For those of you who follow me using Google Reader, I'm sure you've learned that Google Reader is shutting down. So to make sure you don't lose your great subscriptions...

Here's a link to a Forbes article with 5 great alternatives to Google Reader.
  1. The Old Reader
  2. Feedly
  3. Newsblur
  4. Reeder
  5. Digg

I personally have switched to Feedly as my RSS reader replacement, and it's pretty great! You can easily port over your existing subscriptions using your google login.

Dino Days Are Over

I got a chance to sit and paint a little bit yesterday, a much needed break from my computer slaved days writing copy for my marketing job. 
I'm making a series of dinosaur paintings ad creating a mini prehistoric gallery at my place. Here's one of my derpy dinosaurs I painted just yesterday. What do you think?

Paint drip nails

These are amazing, found at Chalkboard Nails.
My problem is that it takes me literally 4 hours when I try to do nail art on myself and often ends in a mess of cotton balls and tears.
Do you have any tips to doing nail art successfully?

Paint By Numbers

Awhile back Mr. Rockit got a few vintage paint by numbers for me to play with, but I hadn't gotten around to painting them.

One slow Saturday a couple weeks ago I broke them out and started to work with it.

As the paint is probably over 20 years old, it was all dry and brittle and unusable, but I used the colors as guides and created my own with acrylic paint.

Looking forward to showing you my final product!

Vintage Canister Spree

One of my goals for 2013 is to make our home somewhere I really like to be in, and that means making it pretty!

Naturally, I went on an etsy spree.

A bit premature, perhaps.
The next step is to paint.
