It snowed! In Arkansas! I generally don't like cold weather, but I think snow is so pretty, and I've especially missed seeing it since moving from IL to Arkansas. It's hilarious seeing people's reactions to the snow down here...and it doesn't take much for 'snow days' to be declared. Though the snow didn't stick around very long at all, I still enjoyed it's brief appearance! :)

In the spirit of Valentine's Day I did a simple, romantic, DIY manicure! ♥
♥2 coats of Pure Ice polish in 'Flirt Alert'
♥heart outline and X's with Love my Nails in 'French Pink' - To draw my heart outline and the X's and O's I used kabob skewers dipped in a polish puddle on a paper plate.
♥center of heart and O's with OPI in 'Cajun Shrimp'
♥clear top coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails X-treme Wear in 'Invisible'
I'm super pleased with how they turned out! :)
Happy [early] Valentine's Day!

thrifted sweater new life by making it v-neck as well as shortening and slimming down the sleeves! I like the dolman sleeve effect! I love this camel color as well as the stripes! Ah...love me some stripes! I shortened the sleeves like I did in this tutorial and sewed simple seams down the sleeves of the sweater to slim them up. All I did for the v-neck was trace my V- shape with fabric chalk, sew a straight line on my chalk line (to keep it from stretching or unraveling), then cut out the excess neck fabric (that mock turtle neck part) about 1/4 inch away from my stitch line. Then I just folded under once and sewed it down with a straight stitch.. I even did it in black thread..probably not the best color choice because the line is visible..but it kind of recedes down into the knit so I don't think it's that noticeable! This was my simple rainy evening project and now I've got a new-to-me-sweater! So go on, find a thrift store sweater, and make it awesome!! :)
