Fun and interesting things I've done this summer? Stamping, started a new blog, more stamping, road trip to Denver for my cousin's wedding, stamping, ....YEP, that's pretty much it! Neat goodies! FUN!!!

Nancy said...

I went to Atlanta to IKEA for my summer vacation! The hot dogs at IKEA were AWESOME.

imteresa said...

Well, I've gone to a couple SF Giants games, gotten married, and gone camping. Can't wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store for me!

wanda box said...

I am a speical Ed teacher's aid so I love having the summer off to stamp. this summer I started my new blog, went camping, my neicee got married, and the new SU catalog came out.
happy stamping

Laura said...

I don't know if it's been fun but this summer I've been taking a Microbiology class as part of a nursing degree. It is definitely interesting though!! The fun part is more stamping and starting my blog!! Great giveaway!!

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

My boys are 1 and 2 so we keep busy! we have gone to our freinds house about 3 hrs away. I plan on taking them to Dino Town tomorrow! hoot! lol. it used to be a flintstones park when I was little! than next month Im going to take them to our Internation Air Show!

Linda said...

Well...we went to Pittsburgh, as you know. That's always fun! Interesting - well, we did manage to stop at the St. Louis Arch for my very first visit.

We've taken round 1 of swimming lessons and my daughter's gone from not wanting to put her head under, to swimming like a fish! My son's not so keen on it, but loves the water nonetheless.

I've played tooth fairy two nights in a row (since hannah lost her two top front teeth one right after another!).

I've cut out about 100 stamp sets (or so it seems!). I've attended a few band concerts (my husband's band), and basically sat around with my neighbors. Not necessarily interesting, but lots of fun. This is the first time I've "hung out" with neighbors...and LIKED them!

Anouk Martin said...

We have been hanging at the pool this summer. This is the first year that my kids are really old enough to go. We are loving it!

Julia said...

Well...it's not really fun, but it's definitely been interesting...my dear MIL passed away in April, so we've been dismantling her house, bringing furniture to our home, sorting through, etc. The nice part (and the sad part) are the feeling and experiences we remember as we're going through her things. And the other nice part has been seeing dh's sister and brother during the process (we live in AL; they live in CT and TX, respectively). So, it's been a good, but bittersweet summer so far....
At the end of the summer, we're taking an annual trip to CA for dr visits and some fun!

auntybeth said...

GRADUATIONS! three college graduates this year in our family :) Wahoo!!!

blduran said...

I have been relaxing, stamping and STALKING your blog! I love everything you have on here and I've tried your tutorials! I am sooo new to this blog idea, but I'm telling you - you inspire me :) Maybe I can start my own blog before I go back to school!

Brooke S said...

The funnest thing we did as a family was take the kids to Lagoon an amusment park in Utah. We spent the whole day riding rides and playing at Lagoona Beach. The kids had a blast. My favorite thing thing this summer was making supervisor for SU in June.

Anonymous said...

Took a family vacation to North Topsail Beach, North Carolina. (That was a fun!!!) Just got a new car yesterday! That is fun too. (Until the payments start rolling in.)

Gina Wrona said...

My black lab, Ebony, had her 1st litter of puppies on mother's day and our family has been tending to them for the past 8 1/2 weeks now. Very, very busy but those little itty bitty kisses are so worth it, kwim?

Cindy H. said...

So far, my fun consists of stamping, lounging on the deck with stamping mags. and the S.U. catty - my first one! Making a list and checking it twice, lol. There's a block party in my neighborhood in August and vacation for me isn't until the fall. So we're staying cool!!!

Mary Campbell said...

I spent last week at the lake with my two sons their wives and my new grandson and of course my wonderful husband. I caught the only fish that were caught so of course that was a lot of fun. We all also went to a baseball game and ate out every night. Lots of family time. That is the best!

Peggy Maier said...

Gosh, it's nice to read everyone's comments about fun things they've done! Wish I could say the same! Not much fun since I've been so ill for awhile, but there's always tomorrow! I'm excited about seeing me get better!

Debra E said...

The most interesting thing I've done this summer is having cataract surgery. It's not real common at my age (36). Now I can see better than ever before!

Mistylynn said...

Interesting, taking care of three kiddos on a 12 hour drive to California. Not so fun though. Hahaha. We had a great time at the beach though. Even more interesting was getting a thyroid scan by ingesting radiation. Love your blog.
Misty

Well Said Cards said...

Well, I have not done anything too fun and interesting yet. We're about to put our house on the market, so that's pretty fun and interesting! We went camping with our daughter for Memorial Day weekend - that was loads of fun!

I enjoy your blog! Thanks for all the inspiration.

Mercy said...

Honey...I've been a cardmaking machine. Every day this summer I have made at least one card. It may not sound like alot, but I hadn't really sat down and stamped in about 7 months. It has been wonderful digging through all of my stuff and playing!

Thanks for sharing your goodies with us!

barb said...

We did something this summer that we have never done, but it might seem silly. Every year in Oklahoma City, we host the Oklahoma Summer Classic Dog Show! Funny, I know. And my dh and I are cat people!! But I wanted to go and we were able to catch the very last group of dogs and saw the best in show overall, and it was actually really fun. :) Thanks for the oodagoodies!

barb

Allison said...

Fun and interesting? Well my life ain't necessarily been fun but it has been interesting! I am a lot happier now since I feel more myself than I have in a long time!

Dottie K said...

We went to Corolla in North Carolina and rented a beautiful beach. First time we've done this and I highly recommend it. I'm not a great beach person and I can't wait to go back. Also I've been playing Blog Bingo with Julee and having so much fun and making a bunch of cards. Such yummy goodies. Thanks!

Sandra said...

The funnest thing I've done this summer was go to Michigan's Adventure with a youth group of our church. I'm an avid rollercoaster rider and enjoyed all the fun rollercoasters that they have there. I have to say thought that the Big Ride there "Shivering Timbers" was rather intimidating looking and I had to ride it 3 times. Hehehe. Sothat's what I did this summer.

Flossie's Follies said...

OK, fun and intersting, well we did laugh alot. Was on vacation in Central Florida and there is a quaint little town Mt. Dora, they have a beautiful lake and a train ride, well 5 of us took the train, we never laughed so much, you see it was a typical train ride, we got to see the back of warehoused and shopping centers, no lake. Did see some pretty houses, that is for those of us who did not blink

Lynda said...

Not too much exciting this summer but have managed to plant a very successful vegetable garden.

ejones said...

I haven't got to do too many fun things this summer. I have been working out in the heat with my husband--no fun! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

Laura said...

Well, it is winter in Australia, so I have pretty much just been tightly wrapped in a quilt and... stamping! :)

Lilian said...

this summer i have been going to weddings and more weddings! we've been to 10 already and still have 5 more to go before the summer is over! everyone is getting married in 07!

Michelle A. said...

My summer vacation.....blog browsing and more blog browsing (lol) and I LOVE yours!! Keep up the great work! :)

Heather Leech said...

Hi!
The most interesting thing so far has been my son's Little League. He made the Jr. All Star team (13 - 14 yr olds...he just turned 15) He had tournament games last weekend and will have this weekend. I didn't see much of his regular season, but now that I'm off work for the summer, it's been a blast to go and watch!
Hope you're having a great summer too!
Heather L.

scrappintrish said...

My family doesn't travel a lot. So, The most fun I have had this summer would have to be our camping trips we have taken. :)

Lisa said...

Fun & interesting? Well since I'm working my tail end off (shhhh just actually reading blogs), I'm not able to do much fun stuff. (yeah right!)
I did go to Scrap Camp this past weekend! Had a BLAST!
Love your generous goodies!

Cat said...

Wow! What really nice blog candy! This summer, I went to Mt Desert Island in Maine (from Florida) and spent a week with my sister and her family (who drove from Chicago). ABSOLUTELY, best vacation evah!

Leesa Berry said...

For the 4th of July we went to Lake Oconee (GA) and it was a lot of fun with boating, jet skiing and fishing. It was my first time at a lake. We are also traveling to St. Louis and have a fun stuff planned.

Melissa Norris said...

My parents came up and we went to Lake Placid for a week. It's such a fun little town. We also went and visited the Ben & Jerry's plant in Vermont. Yum Yum!!

Sandra L-M said...

I went to my first (and perhaps only) Formula 1 car race. I went to the USA Grand Prix at Indy. I had a great time but it's unclear if they'll have another race in the US. Later in the Summer we'll take our daughters to see the Grand Canyon. Thanks, Sandra Lew-Moll

Julie L said...

Well, this summer I'm working on getting my MBA. So basically I'm doing homework A LOT and trying to get some stamping in.

Christyne (Queen of the Crop and Queen of Restraint) said...

Oooh! So far, we've been to Ontario Place (a local theme park) and been to the park and the splash pad...the kids are having a BLAST!

Hugs~
Christyne

Jannette said...

Let's see, so far just a few baseball games. I have a road trip back to NE in a few weeks to surprise my mom, we haven't seen each other in 4 years!!

Kathy W said...

Unfortunately most of my summer so far has been tied up with medical issues or cleaning out the garage in anticipation of relocation! BUT I have found time to do more walking...and we have a beautiful river walk path that is delightful in summer. Also have had more time to follow stamping blogs and practice my own cardmaking! Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

Denise said...

Even though I live close and have gone on numerous times to see Niagara Falls...its awesomeness and powerfulness never cease to amaze me. We had friends in from out of town this past week and they never had seen the falls. We really explored the falls on both the american and canadian sides...two different perspectives but each with amazing sites!! A must see.
Thanks for the chance at the blog candy

Tracy said...

Yummy candy! The best thing I've done this summer is go to my cousins wedding! It was so beautiful!

Melissa said...

I've been to 2 baseball games with my boys so far this summer and those were a lot of fun! It's been 4 years since we've been to one so it was about time! Also took them to the amusement park and rode the big rollercoasters with them. . .that was tons of fun! And we've been fishing 4 times as well! I guess I've been having a lot of fun times with my boys this summer!
Love the oodagoodies!!!

Jessica said...

I am having so much fun being just a house wife. I am spending a ton of time with my husband and I'm enjoying gardening! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

HeyHeyPaula said...

Let's see...beach, pool, reading, catching up with friends, basically just relaxing and enjoying my family & friends!

Pattyjo said...

Now first of all you have to realize I live far away from town on a farm. My granddaughter that just turned 16 yrs. old came to visit us for 3 wks. from Texas. We all went to Silverwood park. It has rides, carousel, roller coaster things like that. I spent the whole day and I went on every ride with her...well except a couple that spin. LOL

Anonymous said...

Wow! Cool ooglegoodies! Ummm, fun stuff this summmer....going to my kid's swim meets are fun. I get to watch them, cheer for them, TRY to get a good picture of them and in between...sit and read the paper while sipping iced coffee.
Janet

CAKVD said...

This summer I've been potty training my daughter! It has been exhausting, but she is finally trained. Now we can go swimming without having to get those expensive swim diapers! Yeah!
Cheryl KVD

Kristine said...

We've had lots of fun watching the kids at their baseball games, and socializing with everyone afterwards.

lori m said...

We have been to a couple of graduation parties. And baseball baseball baseball! Our son is playing and next week is the end of the season. We will be taking a cruise!
Thanks for the chance to win your goodies!

Amanda Pedro said...

We went away on two weekends for sailing regattas. My 3.5 yr old got to sail in daddy's albacore for the 1st time! He's been crawling in and out of them on land since he was 18 months old. He finally got to go on the water.

Had the 1st sale of my wares at a friends house. Very successful. THe ladies were all over the cards and want to do it again for Christmas. Yeah me.. I've been validated. lol

Michelle said...

Well it's Winter her in Australia, so I'll say: Staying Indoors, Stamping!!!!

Cindy Vernon said...

I've had all summer off to stamp! I've taken my 9 month old to Gymboree swim class and swimming lessons!

Cathy said...

Love the sweet candy her you are giving to your readers. Have been taking it easy and stamping. We have been enjoying the weather and having fun cooking out. Thanks for a chance.

ANNL said...

Not a real adventurous summer so far. We did go to the Louisville (KY) Zoo, to see Thomas the Tank Engine and ride him, and to Kentucky Kingdom. Not so much fun for me, but our 2 boys (3 & 6) are what it's all about!

jodene said...

So far we had a week holiday and visited the grandparents. Ilove going to see them because my kids turn from mommy's sucks to grandpa sucks. It is such a nice break!!

Libby Hickson aka stampinlibby said...

Those are some yummy goodies! The fun thing I've done this summer was a trip to Michigan back in June, to visit family and spend some time on Lake Huron.

colleen kr said...

This summer so far we've been swimming, reading, traveling, working, relaxing, praying, exercising, and umm, out of "ings". We have been blessed to have a really nice summer thus far. Thanks!

Heather said...

We visited my DH's sister and her husband and 2 kids. Visiting my DH's family is always an adventure!

Splashryan said...

Hi Carmaine! I can't believe the stuff you're willing to give away! Thank you....Well, so far it's been a scorcher here, Yesterday we were the hot spot for our province at 38.9 degrees which in F would be approx 107.8. We were melting away! Our first adventure for the summer was to see some family in our 'desert' Osoyoos for a few days about a 4 1/2 hour drive from us. We celebrated Canada day with them as my nephews were in the parade!
Have a wonderful summer!
Tara

Sharon said...

I am sitting here trying to think of something fun we did so far this summer but all we've done so far is BASEBALL! Then it dawned on me, I started my blog and have been creating cards like crazy. My kids think I am addicted to blogging and think I will have a hard time going back to the classroom in August (I have a computer in my classroom)!

Amy said...

I'm making lots of smoothies and re-reading Harry Potter :-)

Melissa said...

What have I done so far this summer? Work on wedding stuff! My little brother is getting married on July 21st and I have been up to my elbows in paper, ribbon, flowers and bows, but I wouldn't trade this time for the world!

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

-Paris Otremba- said...

So far my favorite thing was Canoeing down a small river in Wisconsin. We saw 2 different Bald Eagles & even a Eagle's nest!! There were no sounds of cars, factories, or people. It was absolutley FABULOUS! The sound of a babbeling brook is all we hear....aaahhhh!

Tandra said...

I think the fun we have had is my husband inherited a motorhome from an uncle who passed. DH is a surfer, so we take it to the beach early in the morning, we can park it right at the sand, and he surfs, Halo my DD surfs and plays on beach, and I get to stamp in the motorhome without getting my supplies all sandy!!! Paradise!!

Cafe Ink said...

I have been working slave hours so far this summer so I haven't gotten to do much this summer. I do have a day trip to San Francisco planned next week with the girls in my family. That's going to be fun. I usually go to Southern CA for fun.

Charmaine G

Jan Scholl said...

For fun-I took out 13 bags of recycling and 4 large buckets of yard waste that would not fit in the composter. I lead such an exciting life. Ooh-forgot I drove in a tornado warning to pick up hubby at the airport and they diverted him for 3 1/2 hours to Toledo! That was pretty much the last straw for me ever going to an airport. And I rolled down the window to look out and see what I could see-and a semi drove by and I got soaked!

Angel W said...

DD and I went to DC when my twin godbabies were born and got to spend the first week home with them. THAT was the highlight of my summer so far....DS is getting married here soon so that will be the ultimate highlight.

foodpartyfun said...

I took an awesome vacation to the east coast, taking in all the beautiful scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Smoky Mountain, the Outer Banks and Myrtle Beach. I took some beautiful pictures that now need to be scrapbooked.
Pat

Denise said...

well, we haven't done anything yet...but we have lots planned! Next week we will be in upstat NY in the mountains on vacation, and my little cousin's wedding is ending out the summer so there is lots of planning involved with that! Can't wait!

Eileen McClean said...

Well I have painted a 1600 square foot mobile home for a start, played with my Grandson who we only see in the summer, started retirement and stamped each evening.

We have been having a nicer than usual summer in Pittsburgh (so far) and in June I had out of town guests and we went to see the Chiluly glass exhibit at Phipps Conservatory. It was the most beautiful thing I've seen in a long while. Took lots of pictures and so now I have to get them on pages. Amuse-a-Palooza at Stamp Fanci was fun. I'm just grateful for the many days (like today) when we've been able to have windows open and not the air conditioner running. I like visiting your blog-always something creative going on! Hope you'll stop in to Your Memory Page (not far from Stamp Fanci) one of these days. Joyce G.

Cheryl said...

Yikes!!! If all I've done is work does that mean I can't win?? WAHHHH.

I went and saw Spiderman 3 on an IMAX movie screen last night, by my self!! Does that count?

We will be going on our honeymoon soon.

My DH had to go to Atlanta to help his mom while his dad is recovering from surgery.

Maybe I can get a "rain check" on my fun??

Thanks for the great blog and the AWESOME candy offering.

Peggy S said...

Just got back from a great vacation to the Netherlands and Belgium. Loved Amsterdam esp-- such a charming city and the people are so friendly and nice! Loved eating mussels and also fries-- it's actually good w/ mayo! :)

Sharon in NE said...

Miami and Key West for 10 days...(big sigh) I was there for work, but enjoyed it in the evenings and weekends. DH and DS accompanied me and DS caught a 400 lb, 10 ft hammerhead shark in Ft. Lauderdale. No...we didn't get it mounted it. Not for $3000+, besides, where would I want a 10 ft hammerhead shark hanging at?

Kim in IL said...

Nothing fun and interesting yet!! But we are planning a long weekend trip to the new creation museum in KY and a Reds & Cubs game while we are there :)

EvelynH said...

Fun & Interesting ... well, my summer "biggie" hasn't happened yet - July 25th - Stampin' Up! Convention in Denver, CO! CAN'T WAIT! Having a garage sale this weekend - that should be interesting.

Pam D. said...

Nothing new or exciting yet, but we are renting a cottage in Stanardsville, VA. I have never been to VA so I'm really looking forward to spending a week there and looking for stamp stores along the way. Love your Blog!!!

Shannon K said...

If wish I had something exciting to report. My son broke his leg so the only thing we have done is go out of town to my grandmothers. The cast is off now, Yippie!!

Patty from Ohio said...

Fun and interestig things I've done this summer? spending time with my new grand-daughter who just turned 1 on July 3rd. What could be more fun than that!!!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Great blog candy! I haven't done much... going fishing and seeing my son so excited was the best so far, and going to couple of parties at our friend's house. Still waiting to have time to take our boat out... TFS!

Missy Tibbetts said...

I've been enjoying the summer with my 4 girls. We went to the Outer Banks for a week and already went to Busch Gardens twice. I'm enjoying my sister and nieces this week as they're here for a visit. And I look forward to being in PA with family for 2 weeks. Love your blog Charmaine!

Stamp4hobby said...

Our family drove to Bryce Canyon, Zion and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We had a GREAT time!!! :)

JulieHofer said...

With all of the rain we've been getting & flooding, we've been staying indoors away from the mosquitos - and the heat! I've had more time in my stamping room to make some cards & journals. Thanks for a chance to win!!

scfranson said...

We've gone on day trips to see the sights. Not far but at least we get out, lol. I'd love to go to Duluth,MN.
Claudia F.

writeone23@comcast.net said...

Well, I've done a lot of fun things, and I consider myself lucky. But on a trip down South, I was caught in a bad situation where my life was in jeopardy (along with that of my son), last week, so I conider myself blessed and once again finding joys in the little things. Life is grand!

Amy said...

I love Oodagoodies time! This summer had been so nice. I'm a teacher and I'm off. The first couple weeks I just enjoyed being home with my daughter Zoe (16 mo) and then we went to Colorado to visit my family and then we went to Illinois to visit my husband's family. Doesn't sound like much stamping time does it? Well, Zoe is staying with Gramma this whole week. I am a little sad but excited about the "free time". No more traveling just house guests. I need to stay home, near my stamp table!

melissa f said...

We have gone to my mom's house and gone swimming. Her neighborhood has a great pool!

laura j said...

I haven't been away yet this summer but I've had the opportunity to attend several scrapbook/cardmaking classes that featured guest artists and great projects! It's given me lots of inspiration to stamp and scrap! Thanks for offering the great blog candy!

Nikki said...

My husband has been gone all summer on and off so it has been me and my 3 little ones. We have been relaxing by the pool outback and made a trip up to NY to visit grandparents. FUN FUN!!!

Julie Masse said...

Wow!! Lucky number 94 maybe?? :) I don't know about interesting but our new puppy is our fun summer adventure! Great contest Charmaine!

Jan Hunnicutt said...

Fun and interesting stuff for us this summer has been swim lessons for my 2 little kids. They're becoming fishes! Mom's been stampin' and making stuff and they've let me. What could be better? =)

Melissia said...

Oh my stars, what great candy!

So far this summer my daughter and I have really been enjoying the pool and the $1.00 kiddie movies.

-Melissia

Diana Yockey said...

First, thank you for all your great ideas! I look forward to my daily email with fun ideas and great use of color!
This summer I have my 2 year old grandson to play with! He is even learning some scrapping techniques! (He can swipe a piece of paper quite well and loves to stamp. We have been on a train ride, many different parks, made cookies and many other daily projects. I have made bunches of cards, gifty items & invitations, 12 X 12 layouts, made a 9 inch album from scratch (plus the pages to fill it, altered card tin, and several other things. It has been a wonderful summer so far and look forward to the rest that is remaining. We live 40 miles from the ocean and will go to the coast next weekend and to Seattle in Sepember. Life is good!!

Crystal M. said...

This summer I have gone to San Diego with my family. We went to Sea World, the zoo and the wild animal park. I got a sunburn! No fun really and it looks funny from where I scratched off some of the sunscreen. LOL! I've also been reorganizing my stampin' area. It's been a slow going process but it's coming along. Oh, and I've drooled over the new SU! catty! ~Crystal

Bethany Paull said...

Probably not interesting or fun for most, but I'm pretty excited that we've got some landscaping done around our newly constructed house. I also went to one tiki party, one Buffett concert, I'm in Cleveland this weekend and I'll be going to Chicago (and a cubs game)for our anniversary next weekend.

Suzanne said...

Atually, this is our busy season at work. But I was able to attend an open house and do many projects with the new supplies from the new catty! That made my day! Love the goodies!

Alex said...

Does absolutely diddly squat count!!! lol, our children in the UK have not broken up for the summer hols as yet, they break up next Friday and have only six weeks off!!! compared to your three months, lol and we are still waiting for our summer cause so far it is totally naff, awful weather, not a glimmer of hot sunny weather to be found!! lol but when it arrives we are hoping for the beach which is about 2 miles away and the Sea Life Centre cause we have free passes till December so the kids love that

#1volunteer said...

Okay, it wasn't fun, but it was definitely interesting. I have Lupus and they just cut out all of my teeth and I got dentures at the ripe old age of 43! I know no one else has had this much fun this summer. LOL Love your blog! Your smiling face always makes me smile when I open the blog. tfs

Leslie said...

Interesting? Going thru a divorce.
Fun? Attending a scrapbook convention with my girlfriends.

Thanks for sharing!
Leslie

DeniseLynn said...

I'm so thrilled I didn't miss this opportunity to enter to win such FABULOUS things. I am MOVING and it feels so very overwhelming ... however it's a thrill because it's such a beautiful home to raise our little boys in. Some day soon I hope to have the art things unpacked and get back to stamping fun! Oh how I would LOVE to win - Pick me! Pick me! *wink*

Becky said...

Thanks for sharing your creative work on your blog! I took a very not-so-fun flight from LA to TX (which was delayed) with my 2 young children so that I could enjoy 3 FUN weeks with my family! Today we spent some time in a great wading pool that was just perfect for both my kids - a 3.5 DD & 16mo DS!

Sandy Smart said...

Hmmm, summer for me has been fun so far because for the 1st time in my life I get to spend it with my children. I was laid off from my job in March so I am on unemployement and I am enjoying every sunny day of it! :) My kids are too because I am taking them to the water park, the beach, camping, etc. We are fitting a lifetime of missed opportunities into this summer! I also have had way too much time to check out all of these awesome blog sites, which I usually did not have time for. Getting so inspired! Thank you! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Jackie W. said...

My daughter and I are actually in Oklahoma City right now on a short vacation for my niece's 16th birthday party! It's been so much fun to visit home, but ready to get back to the beautiful Buffalo (NY) summer!

lorrietori said...

I haven't really done anything all that fun so far this summer but I did buy one of those big inflatable water slides for the kids and they have enjoyed it a lot. I did do a stamp class for our VBS at church a couple of weeks ago, that was fun for me. It's really been too hot during the day to do much outside. Thanks for the chance at the awesome blog candy! I read your blog almost daily! That's fun, too! ~ Lorrie

Elaine said...

Fun things this summer:
watched hubbies veggie garden grow; watch my kids grow; stamp; enjoy summer weather; that's about it!!

deenie said...

Well this is the most exciting thing that's happened this summer. My parents came for a visit (I live in Hawaii, so they're just on another island) but of course I had to get the house "ready" for them..........and right now my house is C L E A N ! ! ! (Hmmm.....they should visit more often!! lol)

jennifer said...

My 4 year old has a very active imagination... so I have been to outer space several times this summer!

We spent a weekend in downtown Chicago, went to see the Blue Angels at an air show, the zoo, music in the park, swimming ... lots of swimming.. and hope to go canoeing in a few weeks.

leeannw said...

This summer I have been planning my wedding. That has been consuming my time but I have made several trips to Toronto and looking forward to going to Detroit in August.

Word4word said...

I have started the ADDICTIVE habit of stamped card making. I'm a scrapbooker and old timey card maker. I discovered Cambria's blog and have been "blog-hopping" happily along ever since.

My fun and interesting summer?? A first class trip to Jamaica to watch my BEAUTIFUL daughter get married cliffside on the beach! It was a blast, and I can't wait to scrap the pics! (We hand made all her invitations and it included a stamped invite to the luau after party).

Tons of fun for the past several weeks!

Silvergirl said...

Hi! I just love your blog!

We just returned from a week at the beach. The best part was being lazy... the downside, a 14 hour drive.
Thanks!

I had a blast last week as I took my 3 little grandkids to the lake. Plenty of sunscreen and oodles of fun:)

We enjoy camping and making s'mores. I also enjoy rafting with my husband.

Not sure what happens when I comment as an "other" rather than a "Blogger" but thought I would try it.
I'm "turkey1969" on SCS and I'm sure that's how I found your blog. I've been following it for awhile now.
My summer excitement so far has been my trip to Vegas for a 7-7-7 wedding. We had a great time.

Well, my two girls (7&10)and I have been doing some crafting, some playing, playing in the kiddie pool, and next week I'm heading home, where I grew up, to show them my old house, see some family, visit Niagra Falls and more fun stuff!-- that book would be a great project to alter and put some memories in!!

I have been exploring blogs and discovered a wonderful world! I am off for the summer, so I have time to experiment. Other than that, summer has been wonderfully low key!!!

Happy Birthday to you. I'm late submitting my name for blog candy because I neglected my blog subscriptions for four whole days. Leaving those alone for all those days is quite disasterous! Happy anniversary too. You look stunning in your dress. Love all your cards, and your blog.

Looks like I'm squeeking in at the last minute! Your wedding photo is gorgeous. I attended my cousin's wedding last weekend which was one of the highlights of my summer. It was a 40's theme complete with zoot suits, swing dancing, a 1942 Buick, and a beautiful bride.

Well, my hubby and son just returned from a 9 day camping trip with my inlaws. I missed them lots, but I had so much quiet time to stamp and relax - it was truly the ultimate "vacation" and what a reasonable cost!
