Buntings may be the theme of the month this month. Lauren texted me pictures of a few new ones she was working on. That was followed by a Facebook conversation in which her husband may or may not have tried to curb the bunting production at her house.   My cousin posted pictures of a cute bunting she was working on for her little boy's play room.  (She blogs at Husband, Wife, Blessed Life and we love lots of the same things.) I have plans to put this bunting print bedding to use in Cil's room this week which means I will need to make a new one for her too.  All this made me think that we have a lot of buntings at our house.  They are pretty, they are colorful, they are inexpensive and they add a new dimension to the space that they fill.  As an added bonus, they take very little time to make. Unless you are mom and you ask for my help. Then they take forever, right Mom?   So let me give you a bunting tour of my home.

The living room.

All the extra buntings that live in the basement.

Cil's room.

This one is a gift from Lauren and I love it!  It is currently draped across the island. 

 There are buntings in Grace and Josie's room and in our room.  I just don't have pictures of ALL of them!  I am sure this trend will disappear as quickly as it came but for now, I am going to enjoy every minute of it.

Pictures are all courtesy of Jan.  I know this surprises you.  She's like my own personal photographer.

This Week in Cookies

Technically, these aren't all from this week. Since I finally got my computer repaired, I am playing catch up and am happy to report that all my stuff, whatever that is, is still on my computer. Hooray!

Guitars for a little girl 's birthday party.

Yo, Adriane, sorry your party got cancelled but glad you liked the cookies.

Getting it Together

I consider myself a fairly organized person.  I am busy with the girls,  I manage to keep up with the house, and I have plenty of time for baking and cooking.

I am  also able to waste time with the best of them.  I could look at Pinterest for hours and rearrange Pyrex all day if that was an option!

The one thing that I have found that keeps me on track the best is a dead line.  Sure, I have tons of stuff that I would like to do but if it doesn't come attached to a specific date, there is a good chance it may never happen.

That being said, I have some new deadlines and I am pretty excited to get to work.  July is filled with fun little summer things. The splash park, baseball games, bike riding and lemonade stands.  I also have cookies orders and a few other events to get planned.  All this because August means vacation, a visit from Grandma, a big birthday and back to school!

So here I go, off to get to work on my ever growing lists.  Here are a few projects I am most looking forward to.

1.  Painting  4 folding chairs and giving them fabric seats.
2.  Moving Cil to a twin bed which means some serious room rearranging.
3.  Finding a home for all the books I have been stashing away in boxes.
4. Some patio decor that is yet to be determined.
5.  Figuring out how to make a decent cinnamon roll.  Jan? Can you help me?

What's your summer list look like?
