Can you believe it?! It really doesn't seem that long ago that I nervously typed in my shop name, and began my new Etsy venture. Some thought it was a dumb idea, others were skeptical. And still others were amazing, fantastic and awesome cheerleaders. I'm so grateful to them, to my lovely customers, and even grateful for the naysayers, who unknowingly pushed me to test my creative wings. Many, many thanks!

The streamers and balloons are being hung, the cake cools and the tablecloth is spread. Excitement builds, and the little ones just know something fun is about to commence!

These 100-degree afternoons are keeping my fair-skinned kids indoors, and that gets booorrring fast. (for all of us) For most of the day, we read books, work some algebra, and diagram plant cells -- no summer vacation for us this year! But there's only so much grammar and long division we can do before our brains begin to melt like the ice cubes in our sweet tea. A bit of outdoor, cooler temp fun is in order. Now, we're looking forward to nightfall. . .
