As my new little Baby has just arrived, I’ll be taking a short break, posting periodically for a bit. I even have a fabulous giveaway lined up for June 30th, so make your way back next week. I now leave you with some of Make and Takes past posts for Summer, keeping you busy crafting and helping to beat the heat.

My Do’s and Don’ts list for Summer Fun:

Do – get out the snow cone maker and invite all the neighbor kids.

Don’t – get out the blue flavor, your mouth will be stained forever.

Do – watch the veggie garden get big and delicious.

Don’t – watch the birds eat all your strawberries, it just gets you mad.

Do – use the grill for dinner every night, keeping the kitchen cool.

Don’t – use the grill too close to the house or your vinyl siding will melt, oops!

Do – get hooked on a new summer reality t.v. series (Last Comic Standing, So You Think You Can Dance, Next Food Network Star!).

Don’t – get hooked on a new summer reality t.v. series (I always say I want to cancel cable for the summer).

What other Do’s and Don’ts are on your list for Summer Fun in the Sun?
