Airbrush Nightmare



Well the last couple of days I have been dealing with an airbrush nightmare. As you all know I have been trying to get my Copic sketch markers to work with my airbrush compressor but I have not been having much luck. Luckily hobby lobby was open yesterday and I found an airbrush hose there that had the right connection on it to attach it to the grip I bought on Saturday but when I got home and connected it to my compressor the compressor died! I could not believe my luck. The compressor was really old and I have had it for over 10 yrs though. I originally bought it to airbrush peoples nails but I have not done that in years. So this morning I was all set to go and get the complete Copic airbrush kit that uses canned air and take everything back I had already bought but then I started looking at compressors online and decided that I was probably better off just buying another compressor since it would cost me more money in the long run to keep buying more canned air. So off to Hobby Lobby I went again and luckily I was able to find an affordable compressor that worked and I had a 40% off coupon to use on it too. I ended up getting the F1000 Fusion compressor if anyone is interested in getting one. I have to go back to Hobby Lobby for a third time this week to take the hose back I bought yesterday because the one that came with the compressor works too. ARRRRRR! Anyways now that I have all that worked out I hope to be able to show you some samples soon.
Tonight is another new meal night. I am trying another new recipe from Giada's Everyday Pasta book and am making Penne with Beef and Arugula but am substituting chicken for beef and spinach for arugula. I am also using rice pasta too so I will let you all know how it comes out tomorrow.
Things in the BB house are starting to wind down. As you all probably know Zach is head of household this week and Jamika and Jessica are on the block . It will be interesting to see who gets the POV tonight. I am getting really tired of seeing them all play quarters when I tune in to Showtime after dark. They must be really board. I can understand though.
The View and Live with Regis and Kelly are back. I am happy about that. So far Whoppie seems like a good addition to the view. I am eagerly awaiting the rest of the new season of TV shows to start too, at least we are getting closer though.
Well that is about all from here. We all went to the Botanic Gardens yesterday so I thought I would leave you with some pictures of one of my favorite places there. The Japanese Garden. Have a good night.
