In other exciting news, it is June! That means summer dresses, evenings spent on the front porch with a glass pitcher of sangria, trips to the beach. I love living in Southern California. You all should move here, and join me in enjoying the amazing weather. I have all sorts of things I want to do this summer, including:
- Read my newly purchased The Handmade Marketplace, wherein author Kari Chapin supposedly sheds light on how to sell crafts locally, globally and online. The book cover alone is inspiring creativity, so I’m hopeful that this will be a worthy summer read.
- Plant a garden full of herbs and veggies in our front yard. This will be a longer project, since our lawn is full of weeds, and needs to have some tender lovin’ care done to its soil. But eventually, I envision beautiful green things, like basil, tomatoes and zucchini!
- Watch a film screening at the famous Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Every summer, the cemetery screens old films. You can bring a picnic dinner, and enjoy movie night with some friends. Cool, no?
- Sew another one of these convertible wrap dresses. I need a smaller size, and am in the mood for a simple sewing project. What’s more awesome than a one-stitch dress pattern? The answer is NOTHING.
Do you have any exciting plans for the summer?
