This really is a fantastic swap! All this positive energy and talent.  It's really a great-sized canvas.

I am fawning over every flag that has been posted --and harvesting ideas!!!!!

Next round, I am beading and gluing and embroidering and just going nuts!

I received this bright beautiful flag from alwaysinmyroom. It is my first prayer flag. I love the vibrant colors and flowers. Thanks!

It's partially constructed with a vintage hankerchief. Love that detail!

Fluffy arrived in Minnesota today after a two day journey from San Antonio.
He was traveling with a friend and his pet chicken. Very cute!

He also packed a snuggie. Good idea. Minnesota springs can be cool.

We spent the evening relaxing at home.









Fluffy is quite the climber. Part sloath perhaps?











He made some fast friends in my kids rooms....

Rockingbearranch, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the chicken, puppy and fish pics. I'm a big fan of the zany, artsy photos. Smiley

Quaggy is such an exquisite crafter! Amazing work.

Here's the flag I made for myself with a similar spring theme. I am just really noticing now though that my bottom edge is so crazy crooked. Oops.

I guess my swap asesthetic is more about messy creativity vs. perfection. Smiley

Gabby is en route to San Antonio today. Painting a little hostess gift before she left.

Gabby and Lulu spent their last day in Minnesota outside helping me clean up the yard and garden. Beautiful and warm sunny day. My tulips, lilies and irises are coming along nicely. Last year deer ate my tulips. Will spray w pepper this year.

Bohemian, I was just on the Gulf Coast of FL visiting my parents on Marco Island. Of course we went shell crazy! Florida would be fun!

But I'm 100 percent sure Gabby and Lulu will have fun where ever they land!

I am already gathering together some little surprises and ideas for the swap! Also compiling a mental list of all the things about Minnesota I want to share and visit. Smiley
Gabby is an avid journaler so she will be traveling with her diary and her beloved Lulu bunny.

You know, people often lump Minnesota into the Midwest but we Minneapolis hipsters have renamed ourselves the North Coast. We have beaches along Lake Superior with waves so big people actually can surf -when the ice comes off! This is totally for real! Here's some pics from a recent article on it.






And this whole lumbersexual trend sweeping the nation. Whatevs!--Paul Bunyan, flannel, beards --we've been doing that look for AGES! Check out this fam rocking the plaid.





Some other cool stuff--The Mighty Mississippi River starts in northern Minnesota --its just a little stream that visitors can dip their toes in.



The whole "Land of 10,000 Lakes" motto is actually wrong. We have 11,842 lakes that are 10 acres or larger and probably a million ponds! I own a boat so I hope my little visitor can swim and water ski.

When I first moved to St. Paul, MN in 2004, I rented an apartment a block from the home where F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote his first novel "This Side of Paradise." Here it is right here. LV and I will have to stroll by.



The coolest dog in America heralds from Minnesota: Snoopy! Charles Schulz grew up in St. Paul, MN and launched his career though drawing the "Lil Folks" cartoons for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The houses in the Peanuts cartoon do strongly resemble MN. And all that ice skating, snowflake tasting and snowballs --of course it's Minnesota!



Schulz grew up with a dog named Spike who he liked to draw. You may remember that in the Peanuts cartoon Snoopy's brother was named Spike.



I can't wait to learn who will be visiting the North Coast! Don't forget the bug spray!
