summer schedules are in full swing around here.
staying up late, sleeping in, pj's and crafts are really what's goin on
i was talking to my hubby the other day...
telling him & realizing at the same time that i really missing blogging
doing projects and crafting posts are seriously lacking lately
and that's what used to make this place so fun...
but i suppose it was ok for a time
since life is all about seasons changing right?
different things happening
different things we go through
trying to make time for the important things
and building on what is eternal ... not temporal
"...the glitter of the world is tinny & temporal. the Light of My Presence is brilliant & everlasting."
Sarah Young ~ Jesus Calling
so basically all that to say i'll be making more, sharing more, diy-ing more
... again like i used to
i've been stocking up on supplies and garage sale finds for a few projects too
... chairs to spray paint, curtains to make ... i have a list going
things to get done
memories to be made
we packed up every year and hit the road for a 16 hour trip to NC to visit family
we love it there... the beach, the weather...chic-fil-a...
there's no chic-fil-a in NY. no sonic either. no ikea or world market anywhere near here either
but whatever ... i'm not bitter or anything
i brought this beauty along on the ride to keep me busy
i actually found the whole piece as you see it in the picture
(minus the pretty rainbow thread)
at a thrift store for 7 dollars!!!! one of the best things i've ever scored.
the day before we left my littlest went to a my little pony birthday party ... we made her a few pretty things
including one of the my little pony necklaces i had for sale in my shop ... i'm in the process of making a bunch more so keep an eye out! they'll be available soon.
this was my travel pillow :)
which i was also thinking of making a few covers and listing those in the shop as well
any interest? the fabric is so cute ... i never get tired of it
have you seen the you are here mugs from starbucks??
i'm obsessed with them. my hubby very pleasantly puts up with my crazy shenanigans
and found most of them for me (that guy) (♥)
we tried to get one in every state on the way down, but man, they're tricky to find.
yup. another thing NY does not have.
do all the places like the south better?

the peach milkshakes are my fav.
we spent a bunch of days at the beach ... then a hurricane came. boo.
that sorta messed up our beach plans, but we made up for it later
i stumbled onto these heavenly things at joanns and decided to ditch my plain old single colored
embroidery floss for my map project and use this braided variegated goodness instead
more mugs :)
a trip to Charlotte for the weekend called for sonic drinks and a little crochet
i was working on this pillow pattern. it's so cute. go buy it. you're welcome
yum... strawberry limeade
... speaking of Charlotte, we loved it there. i want to live there.
for real. i wish we could.
i bought #allthethings at world market
and ate lots of pretty candy
rainbowtized pompoms make the beach even prettier
even more progress
i'm working on duplicating the pattern so i can have it listed in my shop if you're interested in stitching your own state map with pretty embroidery floss from joanns (and believe me that's the only place i could find the floss ... i looked everyyyyyywhere) hope to have the pattern figured out by next week maybe
the ride home was long but we made it ... and i ate more candy
be back real soon!!
