How is your summer going? Yes, I know that the season technically starts on the 21st, but here in North Carolina the weather is already toasty. I've developed a strong relationship with my sandals. Our evenings on the porch now involve a fair amount of cricket chirping, mixed in with the frog songs.
I'm excited to welcome summer. I look forward to some lazy days. I am planning a big studio sorting; my girls both need new desks (they currently use junior-sized, 1970's school desks) and my bead collection needs some tidying. I like to take crafts with me on trips. Doing that requires a bit of pre-planning and packing. My problem is that I often don't unpack until the night before the next trip. I'm hoping to get ahead of my self and sort things out so that I'll be ready for an adventure. I like to use a big bag with several clear storage bins and lots of zip-up bags for tools and supplies, but it may be time for a new way to travel.
Speaking of travel and places I love, today's Try It features one of our NC charms. This leather-and-chain bracelet is a nice little token to accompany you on your summer adventures.
Did you know that Ornamentea will be 16 in September? We are already planning our Sweet 16 party, and of course, you are invited. I'm thinking that a lot of my chill-out time this summer may involve a new Pinterest page...Ornamentea's Big Sweet 16! If you are on Pinterest, won't you follow us and help me plan it? Find our Pinterest page here.
I'll see you soon-
