August blog


During July, we focused a lot on adult entertainment, but this month belongs to the little ones.

With the last month of summer on our doorstep, we want to make it as bright as possible with all shades of pink. My little girl got me going on this theme. She is growing up so quickly and will probably not have many more years of craving pink, so I have embraced her enthusiasm while it lasts. We celebrated a pink summer party with her friends, and decided to use most of the decorations in her room for a fresh look. This is one of the things I hope people love about crafting and sharing ideas – being able to use everything you make. Do not waste useful time!

I am planning to share the following with you on my Facebook page this month:
