The newest members of the flock

All the other cranes thought the shiny bird was pretty, too.

Hope you're having a great week.


My Favorite over 1,200 cranes

It all started with this:

Sally Hensen Miracle Gel nail polish in Stylemaker.

The paper. Please forgive the cropped shot. I had trouble catching the shine and mailing from my camera.

I played with lighting to try to show you the colors and caught this pic that shows where the nail polish is painted.

The crane. It's so beautiful. I wish I could show it to you in person.

It looks like it's made of foil paper. The contrast of the shiny nail polish and the matte of the watercolor is amazing. This was the only shot that even comes close to showing the finish.

It doesn't show, but the head and tail are dark where I put a thicker layer of the nail polish.

I think I'm going to buy more of the nail polish. Every crane has one of the two main blue watercolors. I hope they'll all tie together.

What joy and what fun.

Yesterday I spent several hours at the beach and visited with this fellow:

The red was so bright it almost hurt the eyes. He's a red-crested cardinal. This pic is from Wiki. I could not get a good pic of him with my cell phone.

It had been so long since I'd been to the beach that it seemed as thought I was on vacation.

Today I painted 10 cranes and I've come into work for a while. I fold the cranes when I get home.

I hope you're having a great weekend.
