Busy Summer

How is everyone's summer going? At first ours started off slow and the kids and I were just happy to lay around and not have anywhere to go. But things have picked up a bit now and it seems like there's something to do every other evening. We've seen a lot of wildlife right close to the house and on our travels. Just yesterday we saw a mother deer cross the road - do a little jump kick - and behind her was her little fawn. Just beautiful! And this little guy comes to our hummingbird feeder and drinks from the flowers or eats the oranges I put out for the orioles. Isn't he cute? There is this one - my daughter named him:"Chippy," and the other one is: "Steve." Ha.
Our cat loves to watch them through the window. Here she is with her tongue out. Funny!
What did you do for July 4th? We didn't do too much but we had family over which was nice. I have done a lot of reconnecting with family which is so important to me. Here's a picture of the cake I made which was devoured in minutes! :)
I have been super busy in my studio making all kinds of things. I've had a very crafty summer and can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do there. Here's a shot of the messiness!
What have you been busy with this summer?

What a lovely colourful not so messy studio! Looks like a lovely place to get creative in.

That cake looks so yummy!! It seems like you're enjoying your summer. Ours has been so busy as well. Two more weeks with the older kids and then two weeks of quality time with my little ones and then school! I can't believe it's almost over. Your studio looks so inspiring to me! It is creative messy if messy at all, really. I miss you, my friend!
