Happy eight months Mara!
July 11, 2012
There was a major heatwave the week of the Fourth, which quickly killed any ambition for Fourth of July picnicking, cow-milking, or hay-tossing (local activities). But as soon as the sun began to set, we lit up our store-bought fireworks and waited for the more impressive (illegal) show put on by neighbors. Speaking of neighbors, we found a litter of wild bunnies nesting right outside our kitchen window that day.

I’m happy to share that I am part of HelloBee’s design team and also their newest craft contributor! First up is this cloud shadowbox made out of…paper towel rolls! One of these days I will learn learn how to craft and sculpt with wood so I can produce a more sophisticated version, mark my words, but in the meantime here are instructions to make this upcycled one instead.
And secondly, I helped Bee with this free Summer Fun List printable. I designed two versions; you can choose a list for the fridge, or enjoy the element of surprise by randomly picking activities from a jar. Truth: I am a boring mom and the unpredictability of the jar unnerves me. This will be good practice for me on mellowing out.
Congrats to Melissa, comment number 29, for winning the JetPens giveaway!

I recently made some hair clips for Mara and shared the instructions at Dotcoms for Moms.

Wishing a very happy Fourth of July to my fellow Americans! May we all be proud citizens of this democratic, diverse, wonderfully entrepreneurial and dynamic nation of ours.
And I got behind on posting, so this is stupidly late of me, but I shared a patriotic bunting project over at SheKnows.com. For next year maybe?
And $50 Jet Pens giveway ends on Thursday (only 55 entries so far…chances of winning aren’t bad!)
