Proud of yourself??? Why???

Posted by   + Show Post

Did my nails last night -- was a manicurist from 1988 - 1995 / still do  my own and friends and my daughter's on occasion --  well i re-did my own last night with a pink and white layover my natural nails correcting the shape so they are square.....  here is my work 

so love how they turned out and so love that i can still pull this off LOL

That is fantastic!!!!  

Quoting Mweddle:

 I had my zumba class last night and I had nearly 30 people there!!!  I was super pumped!  I went wayyyyyy out of my comfort zone to even get certified, much less actually teach a class!  I am really proud of myself.  If you had asked me 3 years ago what I'd be doing these days I would have NEVER said, "I'll be a fitness instructor!"

Yeah I hear you. For a long time I wore them and I do nail art so you know that only looks good most of the time on long nails.

Quoting SterlingHeart:

You are soooo lucky - I tried it all and never can get them to grow out and last -- they grow but they are just too brittle and I can't stand to have them looking raggedy LOL  

Quoting Pink.Sunshine:

I am pretty good with nails but I don't wish to damage my natural nails with that acrylic/gel etc. My nails seem to be growing longer than ever now that I stopped using tips and that other crap.

Those are adorable!
I am proud of all my DIY projects. Theyre my pride and joy as far as my own crafty-type accomplishments. Ive made book cases from wire spools, built the frame for a gazebo for our house, completely restored antique furniture, painted a mural in my bathroom, made a big ass braided rug from old bluejeans, and am currently in the process of turning a desk, into a play kitchen for my DDs 5th birthday.
Some people dont like home-made things, but they look good, and they suit our home, and I'm proud of them :)

I am really good at making hair accessories like bows, bow holders, etc. I am rarely one to brag about myself but I look at the things I make and I am impressed lol.
