How is it July Already?!

So I think I have taken my longest blog break ever. I didn't plan to take a break, but wonderful distractions took over... those distractions being my two children home from school and lots of time with my family!

I also enjoyed an amazing week with my sister, Julie. She came to visit for an entire week. We painted nails, shopped, watched rated R movies while we crafted late into the night ("dirty movie crafting"), laughed, shopped, and laughed some more. It was a week I will always cherish.

Here we are sweating it out at a swim meet. Notice the fab peacock earrings - one of our drug store clearance bin finds!

Last week was dreamy too - a week on my parents' farm in Missouri. We had the luck of a cold front. The temps (normally sweltering at this time) hovered around 80 degrees and we needed jackets at night!

My grandparents' barn. Many cows milked here!

No summer trip to the farm would be complete without a fireworks show. We can't do these in the burbs!

I rode on this one with my grandpa when I was a little girl. So many happy memories attached to this old tractor.
Our last night on the farm. A hayride in the cool night air.
Now that we are back home for the rest of the summer, I'm ready to get back into my crafty groove. I'm excited about a new creative adventure that will take place later this week. On Thursday, I will be hosting my first Cloth Paper Scissors Webinar. I'll show you some fun ways to create mixed media faces, clothes, and accessories to use as collage elements.
