Celebrating Summer

Today I'm participating in a fun project with my friend Jenn Shurkus.  Jenn truly is a CREATIVE CHICK that I've met through this amazing hobby of ours.  She's the store manager at Colorful Creations in Hyannis, and I've had the great pleasure teaching there.  Jenn has her customers SO organized, and they are SO fun to visit with.   I've *loved* watching Jenn's style change and grow the last few months as she's embraced new creative opportunities. I love when great things happen to great people!

Jenn's blog has been celebrating all things nautical and summery this month and so many of the items are up for auction HERE.  Its all to benefit Jenn's friend Sue Avila who was recently diagnosed with Lung and Stomach Cancer.  Please take a moment to read all about the auction and Sue Avila here

I'm thrilled to be included in Jenn's lineup this month! She's a fun and creative chick, so funny and a wonderfully thoughtful friend.  Of course, I had to throw a little Pure Innocence: Make a Splash into the creative mix over there as I've been teaching Pure Innocence card classes at Colorful Creations!
Is there a better feeling than wiggling your toes in the sand? Why is it that a tuna sandwich never tastes better than on the beach?  I'm looking forward to an extended weekend visiting with my parents on Nantucket, waking up to the sounds and smells of the ocean.  Explaining to my kids why the stars are SO much brighter out at the beach than they are at home. Hundreds of amazing photo ops while the boys build sand castles, ride the waves and defend their lunches from seagulls!  Relaxing on the deck, catching up with my parents, enjoying "wine and cheese time" and reading a good book.  Oh my goodness, how I can I forget, home-cooked breakfast by my Dad.....I can't wait....

Have a GREAT day everyone!
