Beader's Block: Holiday Procrastination

Yesterday was a lazy day. I was suppose to be starting on a massive turquoise project, and I do mean massive. Someone has asked for the mother-load. Complete with multi-layered necklace, multi-strand bracelet and of course earrings. My only advice is, for god's sake please don't wear it all at once.

So while I pushed my beads around the table, and pulled out a focal or two to consider, I set it all aside and went off for some mommy-daughter time. All those beads were giving me a serious headache.

I let my 9-year-old pick the nail color, and pick she did! It seems to be the color of the season ... somewhere between Dior's waterlily and Essie's mojito. Just for fun, I checked out toes on my way in to the office this morning, and sure enough this minty sea green seems to be the color of choice. At least at this point for the summer.  

My youngest is a veteran nail salon patron. She wasn't shy about asking to add a few flowers to her nails. She has likely been to the salon as many times as I have in my life (almost). Frankly, I never went before I had girls. But I admit it, as much as I'm not girly ... my girls are. And so we go and get our nails done. Flanked with a daughter on either side of me, I confess, I do love my 'girl time' with them. 

I'll get back to the turquoise tomorrow.

Sounds like you had a much more fun time than working with beads! I tend to find other things to do besides beading sometimes too. :)

You gave me a chuckle when you said, "please don't wear it all at once." lol I have turquoise earrings and bracelets, but no necklaces. Your project is going to be gorgeous.

The flowers on the nails are so cute, it's like walking barefoot in the soft grass no matter what shoes are on the feet. Fun!

Sounds like you had so much fun at the nail salon! I love the flower detail on your daughter's toenail :)
That's a huge project you've got lined up! The best of luck with that!!

I love this nail color! It is so sweet for the toes. I have only had one manicure in my life and have never had a pedicure. Since it is easy to do yourself I have never been able to justify paying someone to do it. Good luck with the turquoise project! Hopefully the recipient does not attempt to wear all the statement pieces at the same time!!!
