2017 MN State Fair

It's been a whole year somehow since I made a blog post.  I think about blogging often ... I just don't get down to editing all the pictures.  So, I decided to just make a post with some unedited pictures; these are from my 2 trips this year to the MN State Fair last month.

Just some of the highlights (there was, of course, tons of food!) ... Bigfoot for some reason hanging out on top of the custard stand; a couple examples of crop art; my mom's drink that was the same color as the duck pond LOL; alpacas; honey in every shade  of gold imaginable; succulent plant displays; lace, quilts & cross-stitching from the Creative Arts building; and the new giant ferris wheel making a spiral rainbow:

I'd like to get back to blogging, but I'm not going to make any promises because I know I've broken so many.  But I hope you enjoyed this =)

Thanks for reading.

October Fan's Choice Poll

I've gone through the comments on my submission video and picked a baker's dozen of the suggestions to be voted on - please check out the poll in the upper right corner and vote for your choice!  The top 4 designs will be featured on Fridays in October =)

This poll will be open until next Sunday 10/2/16.

Also, please let me know if you think I should do Fan Choice Friday in November & December also?

And, stop me if you've heard it before ... I WILL be posting more here on the blog.  Like, for real this time.  I had a lot of trouble getting myself on a normal schedule after I quit my job, but I've managed to kind of get on track while I'm on vacation in California, which is unfortunate since all I have is my Chromebook so my productivity is a little limited.  But once I get back to my main PC & my external drives with all my old pictures on them, I am making it a priority to dig in and start editing & posting!

Thanks for reading and for voting!

5th Annual Water Marble March: Viewer's Choice!

OK, if you didn't see my video announcing this year's Water Marble March, here it is:

And I got a ton of suggestions!  Enough that I think I'll definitely have to do this again sometime.  BUT ... while I am almost sure I've used polls on Facebook in the past, apparently they've changed things and so I'm not polling there - I'm polling here on my good ole' blog =) 

The poll is at the very top of my right sidebar (If you're on mobile, select "view web version" to see the sidebar).  You can choose more than one answer, so please vote and the top 4 choices I will do next month!  The poll will be open through the end of the day MONDAY 2/29/16.

Any questions let me know but I'm kind of rolling with the punches LOL.  I only about 75% know what I'm doing =)

Thanks for reading.

2016 Winter Carnival Orchid Show

The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como is always one of my favorite places, but this orchid show was really amazing.  Almost every single flower I looked at was an inspiration for a manicure, whether in pattern or just the color combination.  

The orchids were mostly set up on tables that were placed throughout the various gardens and in some of the hallways.  Here are some of my favorites:

It was quite crowded, but worth it to see these beauties =)

Next up after this I'll be getting back to posting some nail pictures, and I think I'm going to try and go back to where I left off and work though my old stuff... I know there's a ton, I'm just not sure exactly how much LOL.

Thanks for reading.
