Crafty Nails & Retro Writing

A post of silly fun tutorials today. I let my inner teenager out on the rampage a little earlier this week, first with these funky beaded nails:
As a teenager I would spend hours elaborately painting my long talons with all forms of nail art - and heaven forbid if one should get broken lol. But now that is an every couple of day occurrence with my life, and hobby, being so hands on so I have to admit it was nice to play again.
Second I revisited the old skool style of lettering that I have absolutely fallen in love with again for my journals and zines.
Isn't it strange how you abandon what you learn naturally while growing up because it wasn't 'correct', or 'perfect', only to find that's what you love about it when you rediscover it as an adult? That's exactly my story with art too in a nutshell - abandoned it as a teen, thinking I was no good at it, only to understand later that being 'good' was never the point at all! The freedom and pleasure it derives, I now realise, are most important to me.
Thanks for visiting, I'll be back tomorrow with a continuation of fun tuts but back in a more crafty fashion lol
Much love Jennibellie xxx


  1. Love those nails Jenny but would be no good for me lol!
    I can remember spending hours in my early teens doing all sorts of "stylized" writing but I never thought to go back to it until watching your video! So once again thank you for your inspiration!
    hugs Aly x

  2. Awww... you are so sweet!
