Red Rage

Hiya, Oh man, today has been a comedy of errors, let me tell you!  First of all, I struggled all day yesterday with what to do for the first day of the 31 Day Challenge that Kimber at Kimber's Lacquer Korner is hosting.  I've concluded that I'm not a big fan of red.  I'm so into bright summer colors right now, I just can't get into the red.  Secondly, I got a $600 ticket on my way home from work today because my car was not insured!!  WTF!  WORST DAY!  I'm thankful I was able to pull over somewhere where there was parking, I can't imagine having to pay for towing as well.  And the worst part?  I was literally a block away from home!!!  The way I've been able to make myself feel better about the whole situation is that I haven't had insurance on my car since June, so really it's only a $300  ticket because I'm actually paying for the insurance I didn't have to pay during the two months I didn't have insurance.  I can't believe I didn't have insurance, I didn't even realize, I so don't remember getting a notice in the mail.  And my birthday was like ages ago!!  ugh.

Thirdly is this disasticure - this is the third try for Day 1 of the 31 day challenge - if I'm having this hard of a time with a broad topic like red - I'm dreading the rest of the challenge!

    1. Thank you! Bows and dots are my go to!! I would try doing bows on plastic and then peeling off like decals, then there's not so much pressure!!

    1. Awwww, thanks!!! I'm sitting here about to pay my ticket - do they really need the $600 like I need the $600? Not likely :(
