DIY nail stamping plate part 1

It’s time for me to fess up! Hmmm… Now that the chocolate has been eaten I will say what I was up to. I haven’t done my nails in a really long time, but I will be soon to test out my DIY nail stamping plate.

I started by cutting  out small images on outdoor (permanent) vinyl. After weeding my tiny images not all of them are clear. it could be the size or it could be the blade is getting dull.  Then I applied the sticker to my tin.


I should have made them a bit smaller (some are too big some will only fit my thumb)  but I think they will work at least as a temporary nail stamping plate.

If I can come up with a better idea I will but I will be trying this soon and I am positive it will work. I should have time later this week.

I have an idea brewing in my head, it involves, this tin. (when it is emptied)



My die cutting machine, outdoor vinyl stickers, nail polish. It is a DIY attempt that will be epic if it works, but MEH if it fails. (well to me)

We will also soon be trying hydro dipping some things! if it works I might show part of the process.

Since my husband started making slings we tend to have some smaller pieces of para-cord lying around.

We were asked about making a lanyard. After a little research we found a simple one. So simple that neither my husband or I could figure it out, but our daughter could. She did the lighter stitch and my husband did the other stitch. we had the key ring lying around the house.

I know I haven’t been crafty lately but I haven’t had time. I did however find a site that has been one of my favorites to check.

top-secret recipies

There are a few recipe books and there was a short lived show.

Running out

I am starting to run out of earring ideas for my cousin for Christmas. I know it is now February and I just had a Holiday party this weekend. And now that I have given my cousin her earrings, I can share the other 2 pairs.

If you remember there was the Aww nuts nutcracker earrings.



I will probably be making myself both of these as well.

And hopefully I remembered where I put the fabric for my swimsuit, there is still time for the active wear contest.

Bobber that is. I have had these tiny bobbers in my stash for a while. I finally made the earrings I had been planning.

Was supposed to be.

The shipping date for my order from was supposed to be here today. But it’s not. I don’t blame them, every other order I have placed with them was on or before the expected delivery date. But not when there is freezing rain.

so it should be here tomorrow.!

Until I get them I can’t make the earrings I wanted to. (both for myself and for gifts) but I can provide a link to my favorite part of their website. Their gallary of designs
