Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! published on No Comments on Happy 4th of July!

Just a quick post to wish a happy Independence Day to all of my US readers!  I hope that wherever you are celebrating, you have a fun and safe holiday!  I know that some of you have been seeing nature’s fireworks over the last few days (I’m in Newark unplanned right now because of some of those!) but I hope that you get to enjoy the brightly colored ones too!

Jun MPP WreathA quick share on a project I made with June’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I held a Paper Pumpkin Fun Night for my local subscribers and we worked together to make the cute little pinwheels.  As we were creating, we discussed fun ways to use them.  I pulled out this wreath that was already wrapped with burlap ribbon and started placing the pinwheels and thought it was coming together.  My mom (who was in town visiting) suggested some red ribbon.  So I added this stitched ribbon (retired).  I thought a great party idea would be to attach the pinwheels to canning jars and use them for drinks/decorations.

Ok….off to work I go.  Maybe I’ll see you flying around the system this weekend!  Keep an eye out for me!  Hope your weekend is loaded with fun and maybe even some time for crafting!  See you soon!
