Back to Blogging...finally!

Hello! So yes, I dropped off the face of the earth. And yes, this is my first post of the year. Boy, is that just tragic. It was devastating to stop blogging but sometimes life gives you too many lemons at a time and the joys in your life are the things to suffer. I won't go into too much detail but let's just say 2013 started off rocky and it's just barely starting to level out. There's been illness and death, along with an ungodly amount of stress in my life. I barely have been on my computer, thus why the long absence. For those of you who know me, I use my blog as a creative outlet, to escape the pressures of life. This blog is very important to me and the fact that I haven't updated in quite some time has deeply saddened me. With all that said, I am now back to blogging. It's good feeling to be back to sharing my creations.

So even though my personal life hasn't been great lately, things are certainly looking up, especially at work! I currently work at a Boys and Girls Club here in Arizona. With our after school program we offer "clubs" or classes for the kids to take and I am teaching a nail art class! I couldn't be more excited! So I have 8 weeks to teach a group of girls all sorts of tips and tricks about nails and of course the fun and different techniques of nail art. Yesterday was the first course and it didn't go very smoothly but I only have 45 minutes and when the girls kept asking questions, it was hard to get down to the painting. Overall it was a fun experience and I can't wait for next week.

I have decided to recap my classes on the blog with pictures of the girls hands. Since yesterday was day 1, I didn't quite plan a lesson but rather an introduction to the course and a sort of free for all. I was surprised and delighted on how creative these girls were.

For some reason not all of the pictures I took would download but I hope you get the idea. I didn't help these girls come up with the designs or anything. I really just painted some of their left hands. haha. The rest was all them. I must say, I'm really proud. The picture quality will be better next week, since I have been instructed to teach the class outside from now on...due to the powerful fumes. So at least the lighting will be better. Next week I am going to teach the girls how to make and use their own dotting tools! Should be a lot of fun. I'm not sure when I will be back to doing challenge posts but I hope it will be soon. 

Until next time,
