I apologize for not coming through with a fauxnadicure on Sunday. Two weeks without a day off, seven of them, double shifts, were just too much for me. I have good news though- I have Monday *and* Tuesday off!!! Yay! I spent most of today doing things I've neglected for months. Tomorrow will be dedicated to playing with my new fauxnad plates and feeding my hungry Blog with a fauxnadicure.
Anyway, I got a lot accomplished today. In addition to boring housework stuff, I managed to clean my make-up brushes, re-arrange my make-up and....
I created/built a new storage thingamajig for my fauxnad-Konad plates.
I've had my plates in clear plastic baseball card holder sheets...the ones that have 9 pockets and holes to put into a binder. It's a great idea- *if* plates are put back every time they get used. Mine were always out, not because I'm lazy, but because I like looking at them to plan future faunadicures.
So...I made something more my style, which means out on display in plain sight.
I made my plate storage thing from construction scrap- wood and molding I hadn't thrown away from my door project!!!
(Since I've about used up all my vertical space, my nail station is spreading horizontally.)
Pictures are click-able for giant view!
Sally Hansen, Thinking of Blue is beat-up after all the sawing, drilling and hammering I did! My hands and cuticles are also in a sad state...handling wood is like handling money- extremely drying to the hands.
(My mineral eyeshadows are pictured in the background. I love how much space I have on my make-up table now! Before arranging them in this bamboo cutlery tray, they were taking up 1/3 of my table because I had them lined up singly in rows.)
