I hope you're enjoying your summer too!

|Painting the patio bricks with washable tempera paint is fun with kiddos.|
Did I mention we also camped out at the beach for a few days, and spent some time at the ballpark, and played mini golf, and have been to the pool like a dozen times (at least)? Yeah. We're totally summering it up over here in the PNW.
Thanks for reading! I'll be back soon with a little post to explain sun printing in three easy steps, because now is the time, people! You crafty folks out there probably already have what you need on hand.
