My Niece Alisha Slay did an amazing job on this self made-up Halloween look. She is amazing with makeup and does all sorts of neat things with the stuff. She is trying to win free cosmetics from Micabella Cosmetics and all she needs is enough people to click the link and LIKE the image of her wearing the made-up look she did on herself. I am sure you will like it and feel it certainly deserves the LIKE anyway. Click here>>>> Photos of MICABELLA COSMETICS and thanks in advance for your help and support. I will try and let you know when and if she won, assuming she certainly deserves to win of course.

Elizabeth Taylor "Duchesneau" Gone at Age 79

I bid a fond farewell to the now late but great
Elizabeth Taylor Duchesneau.
27 February 1932 - 23 March 2011

The wide eyed goddess of film with a sultry screen personality, stormy personal life, enduring fame and glamor made her one of the last classic movie stars and a role model for the modern celebrity, died Wednesday at age 79.

Beginning as a child star, as an adult she came to be known for her acting talent and beauty, and had a much publicized private life, including eight marriages and several near-death experiences. Taylor was considered one of the great actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age. The American Film Institute named Taylor seventh on its Female Legends list.
- ♥ and miss you
I am sure I will be watching your movies this week!

Rainbow Cloud Kawaii Nail Design By Cre8

Here is the last video of the 3 created video tutorial in this
series of video tutorials I created to achieve the complete
Kawaii nail design I created for your fingernails. If your an
adult you may not like the cute clouds and or you may not
care for the Kawaii "cute" face.

In either case each of the videos were created separately with
that in mind. One could choose to just paint the rainbow, or
watch the 2nd video to learn how to create the fluffy clouds
and then this last video to learn how to add the Kawaii face.

Please note that these same painting techniques can be used
to paint the rainbows, clouds and or Kawaii "cute" face onto
any surface, not just your fingernails. Keep that in mind for
any of you who would love to create cute charms for your
kids or yourself. In Japan these Kawaii things are really
very popular.


Rainbow in the Clouds Nail Design Tutorial By Cre8

Here is video 2 of 3 to achieve the complete Kawaii nail design
I created for your fingernails. If your an adult you may not like
the clouds and or you may not care for the Kawaii "cute" face
coming up in the next video I am posting.

In either case each of the videos were created separately with
that in mind. One could choose to just paint the rainbow, or
add the clouds as shown in this video, and then the
addition of the Kawaii face in the next video I will be sharing.

Nail Design Tutorials Now Posted On My YouTube Channel

Hi Blog Followers and Friends. I just wanted to quickly post a few of my latest videos I have uploaded to my YouTube channel for designing your nails.

I happen to be wearing the nail designs which include all 3 of my last videos I posted. Its a Rainbow Cloud Kawaii design and I think its super cute as the Japanese word Kawaii implies.

Above is a picture of the finished nail design, then be sure to look for the following 3 videos I will be sharing directly from my YouTube channel so you can watch them right here on my blog for your convenience.


I Created and Updated A New YouTube Channel Backgroud

I finally had some time to do some of my old craft "Digital Art" and decided my YouTube channel needed a new background. The old one was some what of a business card looking image that repeated itself throughout the page and basically said nothing about me or my channel. It had words like a business card saying everything I was into and what my channel was dedicated towards showing others but as a creative design example it really lacked "Me" in it. Now I am happy to say its up and while I am still looking to add some elements of design to it, IT ROCKS!

So check it out for yourself and see what I am talking about, then come back here and tell me what you think of it. Then be sure to comment there to me on my YouTube channel. If you would like a neat background for your own YouTube channel I may be inclined to offer one for trade "depending on what you have", or a very affordable and fair fee.

Hello a New Year and now 2011 - Happy St. Patty's Day To The Irish Folks!

Its been forever since I have blogged. I had allowed Facebook to get the best of me and let my guard down thinking that was all I needed to allow my followers a way to see what I have been up to lately. I WAS WRONG!!! While it may be a great way to keep in touch with family, friends and all you wonderful followers, they are always making changes and its driven me away from them. I am now back to concentrating on making video tutorials and linking to those tutorials from my blogs. There may be more than one way to skin a fish but I have to say Facbook lately is not the way I will choose.

Now I have my own website at however it requires constant updating due to many people I had linked to over the years who offered free tutorials, printables and lots of great free information but who apparently did not know a thing about proper web etiquette when it came to creating at lest a 404 error page or redirection link to their main page or other website when removing pages those links once pointed to. The result has been a mess of my website with allot of broken links or no longer hosted sites and thus their tutorials and information. I have to make time to redesign my site completely. Not an easy task since I now have Windows 7 which no longer supports the once used FrontPage which I knew well and loved to edit and create my website. Learning something new just has not been in my schedule, not the one I have been allowed anyhow.

So I am back to trying to maintain my time to fit this into the many other things I am trying to do. After all its in my best interests that I do as I not only have my own websites to design and maintain but some of you may know I do so for a few others. I have and, one of which is in desperate need of editing. There is not much time left, and I should not put it off any longer. Jane my Sincerest apologies, I hope after my taxes are done I can get to the learning of the new program and get your site redone, rather than updated.

For those of you who have seen my online tutorials on YouTube who may be saying, "well she seems to have time to make videos, edit them and upload them to YouTube", well your right, I can do all that while working as I have a job that enables me to be on the computer, have time to do things on the side that don't require much thinking like taking pictures of painting nail design steps on finger nails and editing those pictures to create the videos you see. I then while taking care of customers on the phone can be uploading those videos to YouTube so they can be seen. Hard work but easy to be done while working, while learning a new editing program has posed to be a big problem for me. Just when I am reading up on something and trying to brush up on my new web editing skills, my phone rings and I am called away, into something way convoluted and confusing as it is and then I am expected to find my place again where I was with teaching myself this new program. NOT FUN! I will get though all this through, I can assure you of that.

OKAY so that is all I wanted to tell you all. I hope you have not given up on me. I have some great video tutorials coming for some polymer clay creations and I will be sure to update you all when I have them where you can view them online.  My YouTube channel for anyone who wishes to know is and my Facebook is

Thanks for being a loyal follower and friend.
