Chaos Inside and other fun stuff

    Hi there, buddies! I hope that you are all doing well. The days have mostly been cool and sunny here in New Jersey. I'm enjoying the lack of heat and also having the window open. My cat, Grace, loves "open window season", as well.

    Last week, I doodled on a fake white pumpkin I bought from Amazon. It was fun! I'm not thrilled with how it came out, but I'm glad I had a good time while making it. I have more pumpkins and other gourds that I can doodle on at some point in the future. 

    I made six postcards while I was babysitting one night. The postcards were made in the span of maybe twenty minutes. The kiddos I babysit love to draw and color, so I figured I would join in the creative session with them. The postcard below, Chaos Inside, is my favorite postcard of the bunch. 

    On a whim, I painted my nails. I used a cranberry red nail polish from Ulta. My cousin gifted me the nail polish last year for the holidays. I love the way they came out. It's not bad at all for a DIY manicure. 

    As always, thank you so much for reading. I now accept donations via PayPal. I have an Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet, where I sell items I make. I also accept crochet commissions. Ciao!
