I just found some of the most darling Disney art called Chibis. These are done by David Gilson, and I hope you enjoy these as much as I have. You can see the rest of them @ this site

In the Zone

I very easily get caught up in things. Movies, books, even things like sewing or drawing can pull me in so deep, into a place of complete concentration and attention, that it makes my senses become "blind." By this I mean, when I'm watching a film intently, you can speak directly to me, loudly, and I may not hear a word you say. Or, if I'm working on a craft, and really getting into it, I may not smell that delicious dinner you just pulled out of the oven not two feet from where I am sitting. Even when reading a good book which I can't seem to get enough of, I may not notice you sitting on the couch next to me, rubbing my shoulders.

This drives my husband up the wall. And understandably so. I would certainly be frustrated from this brick wall I call my spouse, who cannot see, hear, feel, or smell me at times.

Its almost as though I have the ability, nay the SUPER POWER, to block out the senses!

This can be a huge advantage if used properly. This means easy sleeping on any form of public transportation (buses, trains, cars, airplanes, etc). Also, I can easily block out the annoying music that is played over the loud speaker at work by merely paying attention to the task at hand. You can focus on someone or something so fully, that you are literally giving it 100% of yourself.

This can also be a huge disadvantage. When you're paying so much attention to something else to the point that your boss thinks you are ignoring them. You very quickly can get lost in a conversation if you focus too hard on anything around you. You may not realize the faces you are making while watching movies which range from mimicking the puckered lips at that sweet make up scene, scowling when you know someone will ruin something, or even looking petrified because of the awkwardness of a particular scene.

In any case, this is my one super power. Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I alone in the world with a major case of zoning in rather than out?

It kind of makes me feel like Mowgli from Jungle Book

So January has come & gone while I continued to not write. But I am back, with renewed vigor! My computer has been out of commission for a bit, but my sweet husband took it in for me & we learned I needed more ram & a new battery. With everything straightened out, I am back to the internet world. To start things off, I thought we could go over my new favorite manicure. You just paint your nails your favorite color, and then spice things up with a bit of sparkle on the tips! Going with cream color & a pink glitter was my choice, but you can go anywhere with this! Nicest part, you don't have to have perfect lines, because the glitter covers up any errors. So show off some sparkle this week :)
