me : weekly loves

Hi y'all! Happy Thursday! It's been too long since I've done a "weekly loves" post, and I need to change that asap! I've started several, but never finished them. Is anyone else like that? I have a ton of blog post drafts that I've started and then.... that was it. Every now and then I go through and clean out those drafts and delete ones I'm never going to finish, and keep ones that I just might finish. Any other bloggers out there do that?

Anyway, time for weekly loves! :) 

I love the ombre effect. And I love painting my nails. I used my Essie color in Fiji for the base coat. I applied the gold glitter on the bottom half of my nail. Then, I did a light coat over the entire nail. And lastly, I I did an extra layer at the tip of my nail to make the glitter more defined there. It's easy, you should try it. And it looks fantastic! Even though my photo is far less than superb. 

I love getting inspired. I joined the Yoakum County Art Association (YCAA) Tuesday night. I went to my first meeting last month, and joined this month. It's a small group, but they love art and it's a fun way for me to get out into the community and do something I love. Each month at the meeting they have an artist come and present to us. This month was Suzy Powell who demonstrated doing a collage for us. I've never done a collage before and always wanted to, so when I got home I started working on one and this is what I did. :) 

I love new art! 

This was so fun, I've already started on another one and my head is swimming with ideas for different collages. It's also addicting! And I know feel justified in keeping the past 5+ years of magazines I've subscribed to. 

I love when I change my mind and it comes out even better! I thought I had finished with the artwork. But then, I remembered I had some broken mirror pieces in my office closet and thought it would look cool on the cross. I love it! I haven't glued them yet, but I will. And then I'll take new pictures. 

Also, I now feel completely justified for keeping a solo cup of broken mirror pieces in my office closet for the passed couple of years. You just never know when you're going to need something... ;) 

I love BB, and I love his tiny TOMS. So adorable! I bought these several months ago, and finally got to put them on him two months ago. :) I love the one for one program that TOMS does, and I love supporting programs like that. 

I love blueberry muffins. That take me home. 

I love pretty sunrises. And even though I'm definitely not a morning person, waking up and seeing the beautiful sunrises every morning, make it totally worth it! 

What about you?
What do you love right now?


  1. My boys have tiny toms too, I love them so much!

  2. Love the collage, the mirror chips was a great idea! My little Granddaughter has the silver tiny Toms and I love, love them. Just so cute!
    I have white glitter polish on the tips of my nails right now. Have enjoyed it! Happy upcoming weekend!
