Some pursue happiness - others create it.

Howdy! I'm trying to get back in the swing of things since my finger is starting to feel better. I actually went back to the doctor today to get my stitches out but they're still in for another week so it can finish healing. Good news is everything is actually healing so I will still have a fingerprint, yay! lol

Anyhoo, over the weekend my husband and I went to Canton, TX to their huge Trades Day weekend. If you don't know anything about Canton, it's this HUGE piece of land with all kinds of different vendors and booths. They have everything you can possibly imagine, it's the largest in the world. They have it every month and people come from all over the country to sell their goods. There's antiques, furniture, toys, clothing boutiques, crafts, just everything you can imagine. Oh, and I can't forget all the good food booths. I had the best burger in the world, I know it was the best burger in the world because that's what their sign said ;). It was a good burger though.

I digress, so we walked around for about 7 hours and as we were getting ready to walk back to our car I came across a booth that made me extremely happy. It was a whole Konad booth. I had never seen Konad for sale anywhere other than on the interwebs. I didn't have any Konad either so I HAD to buy something. I only bought two plates though because their prices were a little steep($8 a plate). I know I could buy them cheaper online but I bought them anyways just to say I did lol.

I used one for the first time today. I don't know if it's all in my head but I think I like Konad better than the bundle monster plates I have. I normally have hell getting them to transfer right but the Konad plate was almost perfect.

I used Wet and Wild Gray's Anatomy as my base, it was my first time using this lovely duo chrome. I had a very hard time trying to capture it when it was shimmering green though :(. It's pretty nice, I had to use 4 coats to get it even semi opaque though, it's very sheer. And I used Pure Ice Black Rage to stamp and I used Konad plate m64.

I've also discovered the cons that come along with having a decent camera...it shows every flaw and gross dry cuticle I have and apparently I have a lot. Haha.

Well, thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think. :)
