Summertime, and the living is easy

Well it's certainly not summer here yet on the wet coast, but we've had a few nice days that have inspired some summertime soaps.

Next time, I'm going to have to remember to add glitter and make it more like a beach scene I think.

What I did on my summer, I mean spring vacation

Three and a half weeks, come and gone just like that! So what did I do while I was away? Well I ate lots of good food.

If you want to see the yummy homemade meals I had at my sister's, check her what's for dinner blog.

Also met some lovely people at the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana that my sister attended. If there's one thing I find with any specialization, is that the people in that community are so friendly and supportive of one another.

A good part of my visit was spent completing this craft project.

The trip ended too quickly, unfortunately, but my sister gave me some more of the fragrances she no longer uses. Score!
Lots and lots of fragrances!
