Konad Art

Konad-what, you ask.

I didn't know anything about this a year ago, but it is really smart, so I want to share it with you. It is nail-stamping. It is super-easy, takes no time and looks fantastic.

You will need: a stamper (I choose the double and it is really good), a scraber and a holder for the plates is also a great investment, then you don't scrabe polish onto your table.
And of course plates with motifs, they look like this:
You can buy Konad plates many places, e.g. at eBay and Amazon. I bought mine at KonadDenmark, since I'm not interested in paying tax and VAT. The plates are a really good investment, since they never wear out. I have about 20 different plates now, since I was lucky to buy 9 used some weeks ago.

Here are some examples - the first is a design I made on my niece's nails. She wanted diamonds and stars:
She got it and I also added some rhinestones.

These are my own nails. I won the grey polish at, it is from Opi and is named "Skull and Glossbones" (I love that name). It is a dull grey, but it is a really good base for stamping, so I think I will use it a lot. Here I have made red kisses, which have got a lot of attention everywhere:

It is super-easy: you put a little polish over the motif (and you don't have to invest in Konad's special polishes), scrabe the motif with the scraber, now you lift the motif with the stamper and stamp it onto your nails - voila, fabulous nails. And it takes about five minutes to decorate all ten nails.

Here is Konad's own tutorial:

Have fun - I know what my future pin money will be invested in.

MC Tour to the Isle of Bornholm

How was our trip to the Isle of Bornholm , you ask?

Well, it was great - right until DH drove over a kerb and cracked the engine - ouch!

We had rented a lovely little apartment with my BIL and SIL, which had the most beautiful view:
We had perfect sunshine to drive around in, so we saw a lot of things. Here I am with a perfect commercial for a smokehouse - a vintage Fiat 500:
It is so sweet. Note my extremely non-fitting mc-jeans. Is there someone out there who could design some well-fitting mc-jeans for women, please?!

While everything was still good - DH in front of the Church of Osterlars:
I love the round churches, they are really amazing and very different churches.

We also visited Bornholms Tekniske Samling, which is a fantastic museum. Among a lot of other things 6,200 cups were exhibited. A lady had collected them and she held the world record already at 1,500 cups. Here is a few of them:
Well, on the third day we wanted to take some photos of the Ruins of Hammershus, because of the lovely light - we should never have done that. Because it was at the Port of Hammer, DH drove over a small kerb and cracked the engine so the oil literally sprayed out:
Now what!?! He had never taken the time to put some road aid/help subscription on it. Fortunately, he had a very nice colleague at the Isle of Bornholm. He lend a car with a tow-bar, lend a big trailer and ramps somewhere else. But we spend all day at the small port. While we sat there waiting, all the youngsters of Bornholm came driving in cars and parked at the port. The drank, danced and listened to loud musik. There were several police men keeping an eye on them and taking alcohol tests on the drivers, so everything was under control. Here a few of the police men helped pushing the Rat on to the trailer:
And this is how it looks when you push a dead mc as the very first onto the ferry, sigh:
Sorry about the blurry photo, I ran after him, but I had to portray the situation. :)

In Sweden dear daddy was waiting with his old truck (a Chevy Stepside from 1940), which drove us all the way home:

So now I think DH owes me a new vacation!

PS: Tuesday, the Rat was repaired and is almost as good as new, so now DH can sleep at night again. ;)

Husband Humour

We're renovating our living room, and since DH is working hard to bring it back to it's former thirties glory - I have to cook. I can cook, but I don't find it funny. And to top it, I've packed everything, including the cook books, in boxes in the basement, so I'll have to cook from memory. I've been grocery shopping once a week and tries to get inspiration from the big fridges.

Last week DH sent me a nice text with kisses from the artisan saying that he loves my cooking and that he easily could get used to it. I texted back that he should take it easy, when the living room project was finished, the cook job was his again. Immidiately he texted back that he was sure the renovation would take at least three more years! Haha! :)

MC Pause

I wanted to write "closed due to stress", but then I find it cosy to write on my blog. Today we're going on a short vacation to the Isle of Bornholm on DH's motorcycle. And I really need it - I'm literally working my ass off.

No more complaining, instead I think you should enjoy this guy:

PS: DH's mc is a Honda, but it is much more noisy than his sound, in fact I consider earplugs.

An Angel?

No I don't think so! In fact I think he leaves a trail of broken hearts. But it is my new favourite photo of son, and it is not arranged. I took it last Sunday when he nervously waited to be tattoed by his uncle, but it is another story you will get soon.
