This is from our visit to the Muir Woods. It was so beautiful!
I made twenty-five pounds of soap before the weather got too hot, and I discovered that I passed my one-year soap making anniversary with a grand total of 85 batches (totalling nearly 400 pounds!).
My kid read everything in the house this summer. I found her in her room like this one day. It was pretty hilarious.
I did virtually no crocheting over the last 6 weeks. I know, sad face. But something about having the kid home full time, and the hot weather, and the beach calling my name EVERY SINGLE DAY (we didn't go every day, more like twice a week, but it still CALLED every day. LOL!) made it so difficult to get anything done that took more than an hour to complete. I did get out my sewing machine and whipped up some summer fun purses. My one bit of crochet was making the flower for my denim hobo bag. Yes, that's a Star Lord pin. Are you jealous? LOL! I know, you only get jealous over Groot...
Recycling a pair of jeans that were too big! Win win!
The handles on this one are a little floppy. Next time I will use fusible fleece inside and they will be perfect! It's my favorite!
This was my one bit of back-to-school crafting. I used THIS tutorial to make some eco-friendly sandwich and snack baggies. It was ridiculously simple, and they turned out awesome. I didn't make the cute curved edge on mine, since I wanted to be able to "seal" them all the way across with velcro, so Mims's baby carrots and mini-crackers wouldn't roll out of the bag. She thinks they're cool, which is pretty good. I don't know how many more years my handmade stuff is going to be okay at school, but she's in second grade so I figure I'm good for at least this year. LOL!
How was your summer? Did you make anything cool?
