Happy Sweltering Summer!

Is it as hot where you are as it is here? I know I wanted summer, but come on! I am trying to forget it's 90+ degrees and get on with my life, but it's tough. How do all of you cope with this heat? I know it's worse in the south.
In other news... I had some excitement last week - I was selected to be part of a new scrapbooking/altered art forum called More Paper Than Shoes forum. Here's a link to their blog: MPTS.

Here's a project I did for their mixed media crepe paper challenge. I made a paper cone and decorated it with a crepe paper ruffle and flower in the center. I love the way it came out and the bright colors. My daughter and I make a lot of these to fill with goodies and leave anonymously for the neighbors. My kids love it and call it doorbell ditching. It's fun to try and not get caught leaving!

Just wanted to let you know that Trinkets is currently having a CHRISTMAS IN JULY Sale! Maybe it will cool us all off to think of Christmas! Check out my store for the sale info and go shopping here to save!

Early bird gets the worm!
