Don't Forget the Black Fingernail Polish!!

Well, I didn't find anything interesting at Home Depot yesterday, although I must admit, I really wasn't looking that hard. So, I snuck over to the Dollar Store to see if I could find a bargain. I found these baby bottles in the baby shower section...........cute, huh?!Then, last night I got an idea.....What mini person wouldn't enjoy a good manicure?? So, I made lots and lots of fingernail polish bottles!! I take head pins and cut them down. Then I slide on a long bead and glue the whole thing into a large seed bead.......I can't tell you how happy I am with these!!! This first set is for Cora's house. They'll go in the daughter's room...aren't they pretty? My daughter likes to wear all the non-traditional colors: blue, green, BLACK?!?! So I made her colors along with some 'girile' colors. Then I figured I better make something for them to sit on or I'd be picking them up off the floor everyday. I cut 6 pieces of bosa wood, and glued them into steps. Then I glued the little tiny bottles onto the stairs.......I would suggest using tweezers for this!! I use an Emery board when I'm sanding down little pieces like this. The one I was using was coming apart and starting to flap at one end, and then it came to me............if I tore off the flapping piece, folded it in half, and then glued it together......I could cut out mini Emery boards!!!! And then I started thinking about all the things that one would need to do their nails. Cotton balls~ I used little tiny pom-poms. Finger nail clippers~ now that's gonna be challenging!! ..................hmmmmmm??? I still need to find a bead that resembles a bottle of fingernail polish remover, too; but for now.....I think the little people are all set!! (Oh, and BTW...the second set of fingernail polish I made is going in Katie's corner~ and of course I made them all shades of pink!!!)

OK, well I'm off to find a better background. Don't feel bad, I can't hardly read it either, I just liked the butterflies. But, I figure the point of a blog is for other people to read it, and if they can't see it.....well, you get the point!! So, off I go...........

Until next time!

OMG! That's the cutest thing I ever saw! What a super idea! They're just too cute for words. You need to take them around to manicure salons and I bet you'll sell out in no time! Just adorable.
