Day 248: Fishing Box

image

The random gift boxes and toys that come out just around Christmas are always a bit fun and strange to me.

This is something I probably would have never imagined on my own….Just think of the possibilities.

This could be adapted for a small child (more candy) or for a aspiring/serious fisherman (more fishing accessories).

Tackle boxes are relatively inexpensive. They have gummy worms and Sweedish fish in their tackle box. As well as some fish shaped hard candies.

The real fishing tools they have in this set are just two red and white bobbers. ONe could easily go to a specialty candy store and buy a small scoop of all the aquatic creature shaped gummies or candy and fill up the box. How much fun would that be?
From a not fishing person, it would be much more fun putting the gift together.
This would be a sweet as a father’s day gift or that little redneck kid you know that is having a birthday.

Thoughts? Creative or dumb?
I believe this pre-made kit was in the $7-10 range.

Day 177: Corny Nails

image

I know I have posted about these before but I have gotten a bit better at them and I wanted.to show them off.

I also have the correct yellow so I am really loving them.
This time I really got good coats of color on there too. The corn candy nails lasted most of the week and I had to remove it for work anyway–which took forever.

Anyone doing fun makeup or costumes for Halloween?

My costume is almost complete and I can’t wait to share it with you!!!

Day 145: Candy Corn Nails Practice

image

Alright,  go ahead with your Nailed It jokes. This is my first attempt at candy corn fingernails that I found on pinterest. And my second attempt of any kind of nail art.

I know I need a different yellow because the one I have is too golden. My white and orange are good however so it gets the basic effect.

I am still debating applying fake nails to pull this off. I have only put on fake nails one other time in my life and they felt really weird and goofy. For Halloween I guess I could give it a whirl…..shrug.

Whether you think I nailed it or not I think they look adorable!
