"Massaging" A Smurf??

I didn't know what I wanted to do for my nails however I figured I'd switch it up and use some of my nail decals, so I let Ryan pick out some and then chose my color.  I need my nails to grow so when he picked out the bows I thought that I would use Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Model Behavior.  I found that my polish has been chipping after the first day so I used a thick coat of Seche Vite and after two days if you examined my nails up really close you could see some little tiny chips starting to happen.  I wanted to change my nails tonight so I took off my polish and after 20 minutes of scrubbing my nails with nail polish remover my nails are still stained blue and it looks like I "massaged a smurf" =(  Kind of disappointed so I hope that i can just cover it up with the polish I am about to use tonight when I do my nails.  Excuse the bottom picture but I took it with my Hubby's iPhone and I was trying not to drop it as I awkwardly held it for the photo. It seems that if I am only doing a picture with one hand I tend to favor my right one which I guess makes sense because I am left handed?

Lady bug Nails

ItsMay and while I haven't seen any ladybugs yet this spring I figured that it was time to try these nails.  I actually had another mani in mind of doing a Minnie Mouse themed mani but my husband said it didn't look very good so while I already had these colors out I thought I would try ladybugs.

I used 
Claire's Black Nail Art Pen
Sally Hansen 10 day Polish in Red
Seche Vite Topcoat

Not very talkative today...

Give me a break...stressed to the Max!!

This was my Saturday Status on Facebook, I thought instead of writing virtually the same story here I would just cut and past it onto my blog.

What a fun day.....Had to go to the hospital because my hip was hurting and I couldn't put any weight on it at all. Got x-rays done and then they had to do a "procedure" involving sticking a 7 inch needle into my hip bone. I have to wait 48 hours for the results and if they come back not good it means that their is some kind of arthritis in my hips and it can be "dangerous" I asked him what his definition of dangerous was and he said "well we would need to get it treated before anything bad happens" Please keep me in your thoughts, I am flippin' scared....

I seriously need something good to happen soon my Depression is kicking me in the but along with extreme anxiety and I can't even do retail therapy because we are flat broke for 2 more weeks. 

Trying to stay positive.....

Never wanted something materialistic so bad in my ENTIRE life!

I have never ever wanted a materialistic item so bad in my whole life, and if I got my hands on these I would be extremely happy.

Fab UR Nails has two stamping plates I would do anything for.  I have contacted her but have not heard back. And I don't even know if shipping to Canada is possible from the Philippines. By any crazy chance you own these plates and want to trade I can send you whatever you would like from Canada you cannot get where you may live.


I cannot stop thinking about these plates!!!!

December 22nd is My Birthday what is yours?

I fell and hurt myself on Saturday and just my knee was bothering me but since last night my hip has been very sore and it hurts to walk...i feel like I am 28 going on 82 today.  To me this picture doesn't do it any justice, It hurts waaaay more then it looks.

The Supermoon on May 5th, I entered it into the local newspaper and it is on their website!

Anyways Back to the reason why I shared my knee story with you;
I am quite sore today so I am just relaxing as it hurts to walk so I'm just browsing blogs to pass the time until Ryan gets home.  It is his first day at his new job today.  My desktop is being repaired and I should get it back today so I can start editing the newborn session I did on Sunday.  I found a log that has caught my attention and I have been reading for about an hour now, and came across something that she did that I thought I would do as well.   You can go get inspired at her blog Random Acts of Art her name is Janet and she has something for everyone on her blog.

Go to wikipedia and enter the month and day of your birthday....not the year. It will give you things that occured on that date throughout history. Then list 3 events, 3 births, and 3 deaths or you can list all that are familiar to you or interesting...

Who I Am

I feel like I need to introduce myself to.....myself.
Hi Candace good to meet you.

I need to learn more about myself and discover who I am.  The past five years I have being trying to live in the past and comparing myself to others.  Thinking that my life is not good enough and wishing I lived someone elses life when i have plenty of things good in my own life.  No one ever asks to get sick and I thought I had it all planned out.  Do good in school, go to college, have as little debt as possible etc....Living with mental illness is not fun.  It debilitates you and unless you have dealt with it yourself it is not something easily understood.  I find myself asking the same question every day "why?"  I hold on to that little bit of hope that I can go back to my 23 year old carefree self instead of this 28 year old prisoner of myself.  I don't want to look back when I am old and regret not living my life.  The part that gets to me the most is that people are very ignorant about mental illness and that it is just and excuse for sympathy.  I would offer them to walk a day in my shoes but I wouldn't wish this on anyone.  I need to stop living how "society" thinks I should live and start living with what feels right for me.  I will make mistakes, get frustrated, cry, but I will not give up!


Lack of knowledge or information.

I spend waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on the computer browsing blogs then I actually do creating or really doing anything for that matter. I have a huge to do list of stuff I would like to do and I keep adding but it never gets shorter.

Here is my dilemma.....

I love drawing, coloring art journalling, card making, scrap booking etc

I can't make up my flippin mind what I want to do it in, how I want to store my creations.  You wouldn't believe how much this drives me insane!  As I look at other people's blogs I think..ok maybe I want to do it in my Molskine (Yes I have one that I have maybe used 3 times and they are not cheap) because on other people's blogs they are oh so pretty when they are bursting at the seams...then I am like no, because I can't put everything in there. 

My other idea is a huge binder that zips up and I can use the page protector things (which I have as well) and that way all of my work can be stored in it safely..after I am getting this out I think it makes more sense to do it this way but I really want to fill a notebook up too so....

Maybe I can have my binder for my coloring, drawing scrapbooking, cards etc and then I can use a notebook for lists journalling etc and if I want to preserve anything really bad I can scan it and put it in my binder right?

Has anyone else had this dilemma?
