I have been avoiding blogging because I don't like converting my photos. πŸ˜”
So, a lot has happened since the last entry. Catherine came up with a natural nail polish using shellac, a secretion of the lac bug, and alcohol. Shellac.net has a lot of info on using it in the context of finishing furniture. She added eye shadow from Addictive Cosmetics to tint the polish and, voila, nail polish. Truly nontoxic! If you use foodgrade alcohol it's even better. I've posted photos on instagram, and I'm really happy with the results. I think she may have just reinvented the original shellac for nails.πŸ€—

I've done a lot of crocheting of late, most of it for the dog. Unfortunately, the dog is not doing well. I don't think she's long for this world. ☹️ I'm trying to make peace with that.

I need to get on making those Yule presents 🎁 πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜πŸŽ‰β˜ƒοΈπŸŽ…
