i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.

So I made a box-type purse out of three. steampunk fashion - Book purse

Today I’m part of the blog tour for This Book Was a Tree: Ideas, Adventures, and Inspiration for Rediscovering the Natural World by Marcie Cuff of the blog Mossy. This clever book offers ideas and projects to get away from technology and get back to nature. You can make a terrarium, sundial, journal, natural bug repellent, bird nesting ball, and garden projects. I look forward to trying the pinhole camera project with the kids soon. The book includes space for you to add your own thoughts, ideas and reflections throughout the process, along with charming illustrations and detailed instructions. I think this would be a good book for homeschooling parents because it adds great ideas along with information and activities.
