  2. Nail Art Challenge

    September 25, 2012 by siera104

    So I tried the 31-day Nail Art Challenge. It was a challenge be inspired everyday and to find time to do my nails everyday. Some days it was hard to remove the previous day’s work. But It was fun to do, I hope you enjoy!

    I did not make it to 31, but I did do 30. I replaced the inspired by the supernatural, with inspired by my job. I also substituted rainbow for water color. The one I skipped is Inspired by a tutorial, when I get around to it I’ll be sure to post it!

    I have a friend, Al, who write the online comic A character in his comic, is a gremlin named Welsh. It has always been a fantasy of mine to make a puppet, but I never had a specifc charater to make one for. Fourtunatly Al gave asked if I would make him a Welsh puppet, here are the results.

    No puppet is complete with out marabou. I used to have a Kermit puppet as a kid, and I used my memory of Kermit’s construction to guide me in making Welsh.

  6. Stop Motion White Board Videos

    February 13, 2007 by siera104

    When Brandon and I were snowed in one day we took our digital camera out and used the desktop white board to create stop motion animation: Enjoy!

    Today school was canceled. Thus the only resonable thing to do was to break out the digital camera and create stop motion animations. Check ‘em out. (Won’t Play? Download VLC Player)

  7. Locks of Love

    July 31, 2006 by siera104

    I have never had a drastic hair cut in my entire life! Lately I have been pulling my hair up, and it is getting a little unmanageable. I figure someone can put this hair to better use than I am. So I went to Absoultly U and had my hair cut by Tracey, I have known her for a long time, I knew that she would give me a cute haircut. Now I have donated 11 inches of hair to Locks of Love. I have printed out the PDF donation form, and place my clean, dry, secured hair in a padded envelope and I have mailed it to Locks of Love,  and the postage on July 31, 2006 was 2.51, for my 5.6oz of hair and envelope. I feel good about my donation; I sure hope it can help the children with cancer, that can’t afford wigs.

    Here are my before and after pictures
