Pinterest, and my nail art.

Here's my "official" halloween nail art. Thanks to Nail Guy, who always does an awesome job!
So, who is on "Pinterest"?  WOW is that an awesome website! I have french tips right now, and rarely have full color coverage on my nails, but after finding some really great nail art on Pinterest I'm going to start having Nail Guy (not his real name, that's his Facebook name) try some of the cool techniques that I've seen. Probably not real interesting to some, but I LOVE IT!

Fall fun

Ooooh, a lot going on today!  Hubby and I got out early this morning and spent about 3 hours burning a lot of those darned weeds I talked about. Lots done, but still lots to burn. It's so relaxing to sit outside with a mug of hot coffee. I absolutely LOVE the smell of burning season!
Have a crock pot of vegi beef soup on, waiting for some friends to arrive for lunch, crafting and football! We're making "paper bag books". This is a GREAT project for recycling all kinds of stuff! Cardboard is the base for this book, and the top of wine sized paper bags are the pages! I cut up all kinds of boxes for todays project! I will be sure to post pictures! Another thing we'll be making are some "scrunchy" flowers, using pages from discarded text books. FUN STUFF!!!

Fall field trip!

Tomorrow we head to Hood River, Oregon for our annual apple picking trip! This is one of my favorite things to do. We try to have the entire family participate, but as I'm sure many of you know, that is NOT always possible. With our adult children now married with families it's sometimes hard to coordinate it all. We're just thankful for whoever is able to make it! I hope to come home with bunches of apples, and bunches of pictures too!

Fun fingernails

OPI is having a "halloween nails" kind of contest. I can't enter because this design wasn't done by ME. I asked if I could enter anyway just to show what an AWESOME job my "Nail Guy" does. FABULOUS, isn't it?
