When life is all a bit too much

Katy Perry Shatter Nailpolish

Sometimes when life just seems a bit too too much? 
I buy hair dye and strange nail polish and spend Saturday night all alone just being quiet. Shhhh. It'd be silent here at Park Place except the heater is humming and my fingers are taptaptapping against this iPad.

I watched just the littlest bit of the Royal Wedding last night. It was on but silent and I was hanging out with a coworker. That was much much more fun than listening to the inane commentary. 

35 hours from now I will be climbing the stairs to my garret tattoo studio (it is attic-like but not wretched) for my new tattoo. I am ridiculously, goosebump-ily excited. 

Sometimes you just have to focus on the small things - feeling pretty, people who make you laugh, adding to my personal art gallery.

Mock up for my tattoo consultation tomorrow A snippet of my tattoo drawing - that's all you get for now!

365 in 2011

Oh Darling 365

Sunday: Craig watches the V8s
I padded around the house and Craig watched the V8s.

Monday: Creepy sunset and rain on the window
A rainy afternoon bled into an eerie pink/orange dusk.

Tuesday: Dandelion Clock
I made my own way home and had a little wander around the rain-fresh gardens of Park Place.

Wednesday: Beautiful dawn across the harbour
Cotton candy dawn stained the bay.

Thursday: easter cupcakes for morning tea
We had an Easter morning-tea at work. I took the opportunity to make little easter basket cupcakes.
They were freaking adorable, if I do say so myself.

Friday: All I achieved was reading a book & working out a new plait
A lazy good Friday. All I managed was reading half of book 2 and half of book 3 of the Hunger Games trilogy.
And working out how to make my plait stand out all professional-like.

Saturday: the Plucky Sheila stall at Craft 2.0
I helped out at the door of Craft 2.0, a modern craft fair.
This is the stall for Plucky Sheila, Kate Sheppard features prominently.


Focus on Hairstrands

Reason 7468245 why I love my Husband

He is the only person I know who actually, seriously, unironically twiddles his thumbs.

He also has no idea I took this video. He can watch a screen with unwavering intensity.
