Seems like every time I write, I'm telling you I'm on vacation. It does seem like I've been taking a little more time off this year.
and it feels really good.
I love being home. I'm a homebody. I'll admit it.
I've been pinning things on Pinterest for about two years now, never made a thing. Well that is until this month.
I actually made one dessert and two crafts :)
I think I'm on a roll!
I've been in a creating rut lately, I think it's just our yard work seems so overwhelming but we finally have a plan and have it under control.
So we made paper boats. Yes, I asked Dan and Jake to help me out with this----I wasn't sure I would understand all of the folding this and folding that. But.......so easy. I would have made more than one if I could, but I ran out of "cute" paper. I have tons of double sided card stock pretty paper---but it's way too thick and tears when I folded the last step of the boat. Made me crazy, but if you have the correct paper, it's a breeze.
I used a toothpick flag for a sail and some leftover navy and white Baker's Twine. The one and only piece of scrapbook paper I had that was this weight, just so happened to be perfect for my little sail boat. The twine was a great match and I used my "Smash" label maker to punch the word "Sail".
Jake is using the left over clunkers for his lego guys to hang in----I promised him we would make more soon :)
We also went on a bike ride last night, it was around 7:30 when we left and it was still 95 degrees. The breeze was nice, once we got going. We didn't realize we were leaving much too late and pedaled home in the dark----kinda scary. If not anything else.....spooky.
So many fun things along the way though (in the light!). I love the trail to Jensen Park, one of my favorites. We ran into so many people at the park, we didn't realize it was Syracuse City Days, and they were camping out for fireworks. We kinda wished we could have stayed at the park and watched the show, but we knew we had a long bike ride home.
See you soon......xo
