What a Summer so far-

I have been staying busy with Megan and going to the water park in our area.  I think I have the best tan I have ever had and that's with putting 30 SPF on.  It has been so hot here in Virginia that you are forced to either stay inside or be in the water.  We have had a few Thunder Storms but no steady rain so everything is dry and dead.

I have been keeping occupied by doing a few projects.  Back in March I participated in a Configuration Box Swap in the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.  I was sent 16 of the same size box, that I decorated in a sewing theme and sent back.  Then I was sent the full box back decorated with all 14 boxes in place and ready to finish.  I sat down last week and finished it and here it is-

I love the way it turned out.

I also participated in the Birdsong Tag Book Swap with Karla's Cottage. I sent 7 tags and received 7 tags back.  This is the tag I sent.

This is what I received back.  Karla made the cover and put all 135 books together and mailed them back to us.  They are more beautiful in person.

The last thing I have completed is a Way of Life Spinner kit I ordered from Paula and Deb at One Lucky Day

I also added the ATC's that I make every month from Donna Downey

So all this and kids have kept me busy so far this Summer.  We still have till the day after Labor Day when the kids start back to school, to enjoy the rest of the Summer.  One weekend this month will take us to Northern Virginia for my brother and sister-in-law's 25th Anniversary and Vow Renewal, so it will be good to see family.

I hope all fo you have a great rest of your Summer and Enjoy-

Your box looks great, Becky! I've yet to finish mine... but it was fun to hold it next to the screen and see which boxes were done exactly alike and which had variations. All of the sections were so well done!

Becky, thank you so much for the lovely tag. All the pins and pearls, the tiny bird in a nest. Pure art.
Keep smiling and creating.
