Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Hello, friends.

Today's theme is a thumbs-up, thumbs-down feature. 

Let's get the negative stuff out first: 

Thumbs down: 
*Gas prices... $3.45/gallon here in Minnesota. We know the oil isn't legitimately costing the oil companies more money... you can't fool us! (Although you can, and will, raise gas prices all you want, because you have a monopoly.) Hopefully, what goes around, comes around; karma, and all that.
*Overcast April: Come on! We're loyal Minnesotans. We've weathered the winter. Give us some sun! Please, please!
*Building crack/near-collapse? in White Bear Lake, MN. What happened? I hope everyone stays safe.

Now for the good stuff!

Thumbs up: 
*Robins in the yard today! Also some chickadees. And a super-brilliant-red cardinal. I was never into bird-watching before, but I'm not sure why. I'm still not hard-core, like with a binoculars or something. But that's certainly a good idea. You can see all their cute little features so much better.

*Cozy Corset Cuff and Silver Pear Designs at Craftstravaganza, in St. Paul at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds, Saturday, April 26, 9-6. I can't wait!

*Yours truly, CreativeSundries and CuriousSundries, and CozyCorsetCuff/SilverPear Designs, and the Handmaidens of Minneapolis' Spring Fling, May 4 at the Uptown VFW. More info to come!
