Pinterest & Facebook

How fun are these!  It's newspaper print on nails and it's super easy to do.  

1.  Paint nails with nail polish.
2.  After polish has dried dip nail into alcohol.  I used rubbing alcohol, but the directions suggests vodka.  I was all out of my week's supply... ;) Kidding!
3.  Press a strip of newspaper on top of the nail (nail should be wet with alcohol).
4.  Gently pull strip away.
5.  Apply a top coat after nails have dried.

Here's my first attempt...
Not bad, but I smudged the index finger.  

Here's my daughter's nails...

I discovered this tute via Pinterest.

On a different note, I've joined Facebook.  I know.  It was a moment of weakness.  I've tried so hard to hold out all these years, but finally I was like what the heck.  And you know what?  So far so good.  When you work from home you kind of miss co-workers.  You don't get to chit chat about the kids, who's dating who, who's had botax (which I totally think Megan Fox has... I'm just sayin), and all that meaningful stuff.  Now with Facebook, I consider my "friends" my co-workers.  When I need a break from work I just click on over to the water cooler and chat.

Anywho, I'm happy to announce there is a Jamie Christina Facebook page.  As I navigate my way through the wonderful world of social technology, I'll add more to the page.  Here's the link.
