Greetings! Most of my brain power was devoted to slowly working on my taxes this week. (Now that I'm 49, I seem to have figured out that it is actually much easier if I spread it out and do a little on it each day instead of frantically making use of frantic hyper-focus to get it all done on tax day with the deadline looming large. Who'd a thought, right?)
I did get a couple of things done. First, a new addition to the spice cabinet. I've been slowly making these as a fun "for me" project, and as an added bonus it makes it easier to grab the spice I'm looking for when I'm cooking.
I'm a bare-faced no makeup gal a vast majority of the time, but I can appreciate how fun it is to smoosh color around on your face - so I've been using the burlesque class I've been teaching to play with some fun makeup looks each week. Being a Gen X-er, I still have two of those fantastic "tackle boxes for makeup" (Caboodles!) that we loved as teens, but the larger one was a boring, plain pink - the exact shade of pink I don't particularly care for. (I want my pink bright, bold, and more towards the magenta end of the scale.) So I started work to revamp it. Here's the work in progress:
Have a great week, and if you have a minute to dance a little dance, sing a little song, or draw a little drawing, I hope you do!
