Hi Friends! I haven’t been around here since early June when the final school bell rang for summer. I’ve decided that summer and blogging don’t work together very well for me. And I’m OK with that.
I’ve been playing hard with the kids; and most of my creative energy has been focused on expanding my product line. If you find yourself in SLC this summer, come visit me at the Craft Lake City DIY Festival in August. I honestly didn’t think I’d get in when I applied, and therefore wasn’t in a rush to create new stuff; but then I got in, and I’ve been in various stages of panic for most of the summer. I keep telling myself that I do my best work in panic mode. Maybe I’ll start to believe it soon.
One of my goals for the summer was to spend more time creating with the kids. We have “school” work to do everyday; and quite often I throw an art project into the mix. I’m planning a “Gallery Walk” for the kids to show off their artwork to family and friends in the fall to keep us motivated with our projects.
Before summer began, I sat down and wrote a list of quick, easy and inexpensive projects we can do, so I didn’t actually have to use my brain once summer vacation started. You can get the printable list here…and it goes really well with our Summer Activity Lists…so combine them, and you’re all set to finish summer off with a bang. Or at least a big splash of color.
I’ve got several other blog posts planned for the remainder of summer…but who knows when I’ll get around to them. 😉 In the meantime, you can see what I’m working on over on instagram: @christinawilliamsblog, and while you’re there, check out our summer art hashtag: #cwsummerart so you can see our art projects in action.
