Toni Ransfield from NZ sponsored a Fimo Nail Competition for nails decoration, the competitors used her beautiful canes to design a winning nail design, choice was hard but the finalists were so colorful! Winning design was from New Zealand! Just thinking of these long nails, must be very hard to work at home or even clay with those long ones! but on the otherside, let's give DH do some house chores :)

One of my hobbies over the years was balloon sculpturing, i was hooked by that fast and colorful art of twisting balloons and making a beautiful piece out of it, i bought books and magazines and had a great time! and look what i found - a balloon dog pendant by roscata, she is a biologist, chonchologist, mesmerized by miniatures, and curiosities accumulator extraordinaire - this cutie brings me back to those balloons i love!
