Hi Everyone!! Happy Friday! I am SO glad the weekend is almost here. It is cold, cold, COLD here again and I just really don't feel like going out! I'm thinking some nice Wisconsin Beer Cheese soup and pretzel rolls from O & H will make the perfect weekend meal!
Today in the Crumpet Nail Tart's 31 Day Challenge is Inspired By Your Childhood. I had thoughts to do an Elvis jumpsuit skittle mani as I loved Elvis since I was 7 years old and he was a HUGE part of my young life. Then I got an idea for something completely different last night!!! When I think of my childhood and how happy it was there is just one person that comes to mind--my Grandma Welch. She was the best grandma in the world! I only had her until I was 17 and I still feel quite cheated I didn't have her longer.
She was a cake decorator for Lehman's Bakery for over 30 years. Every year on my birthday she made me a Danish Layer cake. Because my birthday is on February 12th it either had Abe Lincoln on it or Valentine's Day decoration. It was ALWAYS delicious.
I miss my grandma alot, I miss her hugs and her smile. I miss her gentle nature. Mostly I miss how much she loved me and my sisters.
Today's mani is done with love for my Grandma Welch
I got all cute and sweet with this one!
I skittled with some holos just for my sweet from Jin and hauled out DS Divine and my franken Safe, Sane & Consensual (yikes I shouldn't have used that polish in grandma post!)
I stamped with Konad m83 and DRK-B.
Here's a nice shot of it with flash
All in all a pretty sweet mani!
Wow we are so close to being done with this challenge--what's in store for tomorrow?
