What I am Thankful for today.

This might sound a little strange.. but sometimes when I'm feeling down...or im just plain bored... i will pick up my journal..or art journal (scan old blog posts for pics of my art journal) and write down 10 things that I was thankful for that day. It really picks me up, makes me feel happy..and really puts into perspective things that i have, and makes me realize how lucky I am. Thought I would do this quickly while i wait for my yummy dinner to cook... haha

I'm thankful for...

1. My giving father who suprised me with a set of patio chairs. He is the best!
2. The fact that ALL my colors turned out great today, and my clients left happy!
3. waking up sick..but it NOT lasting all day!!
4. having 1 more yogurt in the fridge for breakfast this morning.. i was craving it!
5. having 3 clients today!!
6. getting to have lunch with my mom at Typhoon!! delish!
7. my mom getting lucky and moving her car RIGHT as the lady walked by to give her a ticket!!
8. My husband... seeing him after work makes me happy!
9. My baby kitty Jubei who woke me up this morning with his cuddlyness.. he does it every morning when my hubby leaves for work... its the cutest thing ever.
10. getting 50 new subscribers today! I love every single one!!!

i hope this was inspiring.. and i would love it if you made a comment telling me what YOU were thankful for today!!

Fabulous Find: NUDE PUMPS!

I was so excited when i saw these at fred meyer!! They were 30.00 but 50% off so i got them for 15.00!! I have been looking for some nude pumps for a long time... but you know me, i refuse to pay top dollar for anything so this was a score. The nice thing about these is they are low! Dont get me wrong i love platforms..but i work on my feet all day and these are the most comfortable shoes EVER!! and the are nice and rounded on the toe... (almost too rounded, but still cute! haha) Anyways... they probably wont be around much longer so check out your local fred meyer...nothing beats 15.00 pumps!!

This is a great line if you dont like to wear alot of makeup on a daily basis, and if you like the natural look!! it comes in a kit so its easy to order, and PERFECT size for travel. the eye shadow is super silky soft and the packaging is very nice! Check out some of the pictures below and check out Jens website if are interested in ordering!

Thanks again,
