Card Stand w/Miniture Photo Frame

Found a neat thing to blink!  This is a card stand with a 1" x 1" photo frame!  Blinked one with Smiley mark in rainbow color and another with 2 stars and gradation of blue crystals.

Lincoln Woods State Park

This weekend, we went to Lincoln Woods State Park, Rhode Island with Ikko & Rie.  It was our 2nd time, so I wanted to finish The Wave V2*** which I couldn't even get to the crux last time.  I tried it on the second day, and sent it in 4-5 tries!  Other than that, I repeated Mack's Traverse V2*** and lots of V0 to V2s.

 Maybe this trip was the most I ever climbed!  Sooo exhausted...

Rie also tried lots of problem despite of her shoulder injury.  I hope she gets well soon so that she can climb as she wishes.
The best part of this trip was Ikko's aggressive try to Iron Cross V4****!
YES!!!  He was strong and finally sent his first V4 even without trying any V3s!!  Hurray!!  And first time that I had tears in my eyes with happiness to someone sending a problem.

Yusuke, strong as usual, sent the long version of this V4 that maybe V7ish, and of course, lots and lots and lots of other problems (as usual!).
Shiro was sleepy as usual...

Hobbit Hole!!! (Pawtuckaway NH)

 YES!  I sent Hobbit Hole V3**** at Pawtuckaway, NH.  This was my first four star V3 problem that I got!  Actually, I tried this problem once in September, but since there was a reachy part, I couldn't figure out a move for myself...  This time, I saw a very strong man crossing his right hand in the crack instead of bumping your left hand (like the left photo).  You can't imagine how polished it is inside this crack...  That's why everyone uses the good stance at the bottom, but since I couldn't reach it, I used a very high crimp to move my feet.  As you know, high feet are BAD for slopers...  I felt soooo relieved when I got the jug!

Squeeze Play V2* ;The crux is how slim you can be!! Haha!

My License Plate!

I found a paw designed license plate cover so I blinked it for fun!!  haha!
Now I won't mistake my car.

Picture Frame

Blinked a picture frame in a simple and elegant design with purple based swarovski crystals.
Not only the original picture frame, but the 3 different purple colored crystals were very difficult to find...
