Here's what I've been up to so far this summer. I've been crafting quite a bit and selling my crafts at my local farmer's market on Saturdays. My family and I took a trip and spent a week at a beautiful cabin on a lake. It was wonderful. My youngest son has been staying busy with Summer Junior Golf Lessons, hanging out with friends and going to the library.

I decided to make him a messenger style bag out of duct tape to carry his books in to and from the library. He loves anything in camouflage so I found some camo duct tape and some black duct tape and made him a bag.

Thanks for joining us today and we hope you enjoyed our projects.
