Watch out, girly post!

Today I had something done that I had wanted to for a long long time: having my eyebrows threaded. There has been this little booth in town where they do it, and it's always busy, and we're always rushing around getting our bits, so I never really got round to actually having it done, but today I did.

MAN did it hurt!!

Here's the before:

I know, I really needed to pluck them! She pulled out ten hairs at a time at one point, and I was sure I was bleeding! It took a while for the redness to disappear, but I do like the result:

She got me a loyalty card where I'd get the 6th time free, but I might watch some Youtube videos and learn how to do it myself. Might be less painful, too.

(Oh, and on Thursday I'm having another haircut. Ohhhyeahhhh!)

Finished Travel Journal

Here is the flip through video of my finished Travel Journal. Tye was helping me with the camera work while I did the flipping, and his singing and comments were too funny to not include into the final video.... Just excuse his coughing and sniffing please.

And some pictures, too. (Yes that is sand and those are pebbles. I took some plastic baggies just so I could add some sand and pebbles to my Travel Journal.)

Resizing pictures for

Well hello there! I know it's been a while, I've been on holiday and it took me a bit to get back into the normal swing of things, plus I had this Travel Journal to work on (note to self: next time try and keep up while actually on holiday, so you don't have to play catch-up so much when you return) and on top of that I got offered a job at the pub around the corner. Just a few hours a week for now, and just a bit of cleaning and helping out once or twice a week when they do a food-night, but hey, it's a start.


As some of you know, I'm a moderator for, and one of the things I have to moderate is the posting of pictures. On Artjournaling, we're limited to 5 pictures a day, and they are only allowed to be under 100kbs each.

Because not everyone knows how to resize a picture to the size allowed on Artjournaling.Ning, the lovely Kerri aka ikerrilove on Twitter was kind enough to do a video on how to resize pictures.

Thank you Kerri for doing this video! Be sure to check out Kerri's blog too, and don't forget to join her Ustream show on Friday at 8 pm EST.

Travel Journal

Remember this journal I made a few months ago? Well I've turned it into a Travel Journal for me to take on holiday this week.

Because it's made from envelopes, it has tons of space to put tickets, receipts, pictures (I am taking my Pogo printer of course!) brochures, cards and whatever else I will come across in, plus it still has enough space for journaling.

I can't promise anything, but I will try and video me journaling in it, and of course I will show off the journal once it's finished.

Have you kept a travel journal? Show me show me show me! ;)
