Summer Fun 2014

Fall is quickly approaching, although, here in Southern California, it still feels like we're in the middle of summer!  It's my favorite time of year and my calendar is already loaded up with things to do!  So, before Fall officially starts, I thought I'd share my summer fun with you.

Disneyland's Rock Your Disney Side 24 Hour Event
(click above for the blog post I previously shared)...We didn't spend the entire 24 hours at the parks, but went down there after work.  There were so many people there - when we left at 2am, there were still a lot of people showing up!  But, they made it like a party atmosphere, so it didn't seem so bad and we had a blast!

Adventures in the Caribbean

Just popping in for another travel report....last month I went on a Caribbean cruise with some friends. Ever since my trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, I've been wanting to explore some other Caribbean islands and a cruise is definitely the way to do it!

Fabric Bunting

Hello - long time, no blog!  It's been a busy, busy summer and I also have a deadline to meet, so I've been slaving away to make sure I don't fall too behind.  So, things may be continue to be slow on the blog-front in the next few months, but I'll be sure to pop in from time to time.

Today, I'm sharing fabric bunting that I made.  I've always loved the look of these, but there's really no place for one in my home, so when the opportunity to make a few of them came up, I jumped on it.

Sconces & Mirrors: A Master Bedroom Mini Update

Last week, I shared my plank headboard that I finally got around to making.  I still have some other projects in mind to make the room complete, but for now I've added a couple of small touches to give it a mini-update.

Plank Headboard

I mentioned previously that I'm working with Duluth Trading Company - they gave me a Kick In The Pants to get whatever project(s) that I needed to finish.  Two plans that I revealed were for a plank headboard & a dining table and I finally finished the headboard!  Several things came up since I originally planned these, including a sprained ankle, school work, & a lot of family stuff, but I was finally get it completed! (I have all the supplies for the dining table & it will still be done, but at a later time).

Projects In The Works

It's been quiet on the blog, but not-so-quiet on the homefront.  There's been lots of things going on, all the while I've been trying to fit in projects when I can.

I think I mentioned before that I've been in the process of making a plank headboard.   I ended up buying a Kreg Jig so that I could go with Plan B, which will make it easier to finish up the project.  I played around with it tonight and am loving it so far!

I actually had to put the headboard on hold for a bit since I helped make decorations for my friend's daughter's birthday party, which was last weekend.  (I thought I was going to have a couple of posts about the decorations, but I sort of forgot to take pictures of the finished products.  Oops.)  But, I'm hoping to have the headboard finished up soon.

I also want to make a few gifts, which I'll need to get done in the next couple of weeks, so I need to get on that - especially because my ideas are pretty ambitious and using processes I've never done before.

So, that's what's been going on - busy, busy, busy and several unfinished projects in progress.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer - I know I sure am!
