a few of my summer plans...

The countdown is on...there are only 17 days of school left (including today).  So, with more free time on the horizon, I've got a few creative plans.
  • I would really like to make a cover for my camera strap.  This one is pretty cute and so is this one!  It's also possible that I'll modify mine to include a ruffle.  We'll see.
  • One of my missions this summer is to make enough cards to last me until next summer.  This is a simple design that's super sweet!
  • Every spring, I host a classroom party.  We celebrate everyone's birthday on the same day...that way those born in the summer aren't left out.  This little party looks similar to an end-of-the-year celebration.  We play games, create teams based on birthday months, and enjoy some yummy snacks - what's a party without food?!?!  I want to make these for the annual celebration.  They would hold-up well and keep me from having to buy streamers each year.
  • Some people belong to a book club, others are party of a dinner club.  However, I'm thinking I should start some sort of craft club.  One of the first projects I would tackle?  This one!  It looks so cute...and seems pretty simple too.
  • I would love to have these on hand for those rare occasions when we have folks over for dinner.
  • This is a brilliant idea!  I need to get these made ASAP...that way I can use them throughout the summer.
  • I wonder if Gavin or the twins would find this book to be kind of fun?!?!
  • When the sun finally decides to stick around for a while, I want to try this little recipe.  It seems easy enough.
There are a ton of ideas I have saved here on my computer.  Perhaps I'll post a few more as I get a bit closer to summer vacation.  In the meantime, please feel free to share any ideas you might have!

The ice cream is really easy...I've done it before. But your hands get really cold - so wear gloves or something! haha
