happy july.


can it really be july? i promised myself to be so much more on target with posts in june...and sadly it is july. the year is half way over. summer is well under way. still have family vacation to get to. and all those fab beach photos to make into fun projects and stories. is it bad i look forward to that part more than the trip? it's just that when you have little ones you are vacationing with half way around the country, it is not a vacation for the mom...it's a trip. and the rest of them get to vacation. so, am attempting to promise myself to take little quiet breaks here and there and walk and read and allow others to be with the kids. in a house of 19 people will it even be possible? well, the beach is a big place. if you can't find me, that is where i will be.

a little eye candy above. my monthly wall art celebrating this country's birthday. i also made the jenni bowlin star project. will post that one later. that was a fun project as i did not have to think, just got to follow directions yet still be creative. sometimes one needs that.

so, for now, have a fab first day of july.
supplies: paper: jenni bowlin trendy line. scenic route liberty. paper flower: april wip kit. gem: making memories. number tag: everyjotandtitle-etsy. large eyelet: we r memory keepers. stamp: stampin up. chipboard stars: stampin up. glitter: jenni bowlin. chipboard letters: making memories.


  1. Love your Wall art and I have to agree about the vacation. It just makes more work for us Moms most of the time.

  2. The wall art looks amazing, great job!

  3. Love them both Jamie! Wow...that wall art rocks the boat! I so need to make one of those (remind me next year ok? ;) )
