I can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode of Craftshop. I hear Dana is going to show us how to make something totally hip for your room – a pillow made out of a t-shirt. Dana sent me one of the pillows she made on the set and I LOVE it! I posted a pic of it here. J
Another craft I love is the 3D Sand Castle Art project in the BABW App this week. I’m always up for decorating my room, and this craft lets me add some summer style to my walls. It was even fun collecting the materials for this project because I got to rifle through my dad’s workshop. One of the things you need is sandpaper, so with the leftovers from my dad’s shop my castle looks awesome. It definitely warms up my room! I might even add some seashells to it later to make it beachier.
You should go check out some crafts to do this summer. Who knows? Maybe you’ll discover a whole new talent that you didn’t even know you had!
Talk to ya later!

Have you seen the new Blizzard Bears? They are so sweet! I haven’t gotten one yet but I’m thinking I want the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard Bear because that is my favorite Blizzard flavor, but of course, you know me, I could change my mind!
These yummy bears are also the camp counselors at Camp Happy Heart in Bearville™ this year, which means camp is going to rock. If you haven’t signed up yet be sure to log into Bearville soon and you’ll get assigned to a team. You’ll even get a cool team T-shirt so you can show off your team spirit! You earn points for your team when you play in Bearville and at the end of July the team with the most points wins!
Summertime in the city!

The official first day of summer is tomorrow! And in MY town the first day of summer means it’s almost art festival time! I guess it’s more of an art fair, – I just love it – there is so much cool art to see:: painting, drawing, watercolor, digital prints, basket weaving – the list goes on and on. There’s even artsy jewelry and clothing. Some of it is really funky, but some of it is hip too. You know what they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which means that everyone has different tastes about what they think looks good.
My family always goes because we love all kinds of art. (Obviously, since I’m always making things, I got my parents genes.) There is also food and music that we like, but I think most of all we go because it’s a fun family activity to do together and it’s outside. We just walk around and look at cool stuff, for free! Summer is the best. I love being outside, looking at cool art and especially hanging out with my family!
