Well, the heat is on here in the desert! Ugh! We're been teasing 100° (37° C.) for days. It is too early for such heat! Add to that, we have wind each and every day! It's like a blow dryer outside! I dread going anywhere outside even though our cars are air conditioned. I really dislike this time of the year! I'll whine for the next three months, so please forgive me now! LOL
Today, the Magnolia-licious Design Team is having a Summertime Blog Hop! I must warn you. I have a TON of photos below! I wanted to show you every aspect of my project. I hope you don't mind!
You should have reached my site through Norma's Blog. At the end of my post, I will tell you where the next stop is. OK? If you have strayed along the way, here is your starting point:
You want to go to this page to find all the details and where to start. Diana is offering a prize of a wonderful surprise package to a lucky gal! To be eligible, you need to create a project and post it on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. You will have TWO WEEKS to enter your Summertime Project.
For my project, I decided to make a Summertime Fun Bucket! It's a modification of a Bucket List, but since these aren't things we wanted to do before we die, my husband and I chose to make it a "Bucket of Fun," so-to-speak, with things to do this summer!
As we complete each activity, we'll just put the clothes pin into the bucket. See photo below. Here is my **ahem** gallery of photos! I hope I don't lose you along the way, LOL!
I wanted the bucket to be bright and cheery. My DH painted the bucket for me. Then, I went to town with the goodies!
Of course, I wanted to have a journal for the activities we've planned. It'll be fun to look back on in a few years when we can't remember anything anymore! LOL
I chose images from my Magnolia Collection that matched some of the activities on the clothes pins. In this case, it is take a walk in the rain (it will sometime this summer, LOL, I hope!) and fly a kite.
The little characters just make the bucket look so festive and cheery! I wanted to make sure Edwin wasn't left out! LOL
This is the interior of the bucket showing what to do with the pins.
Because I wanted to make my clothes pins look more polished, I chose to decorate the backs as well. I think it just looks nicer.
Here are details of the clothes pin activities we have planned:
I hope I got all the photos included! My folder for this project is filled with so many images! LOL I thought you might want to read what we have planned. Not everything requires going somewhere. I liked including things that would be fun for us to do together.
Well, if you are still with me, it's time for you to visit the next blog! You are now going to visit
