Summer Dreams

Having already hit 104* here, summer is in full swing even though the calendar still reads Spring.

I have been focusing on dreamy summer items in my studio.

Dream catchers

Simple shabby style stars, great for teething babies to drool on the points

Iced lollies

Summer woodland toadstools

And of course some summer crochet

This week I will be lying on a beach crocheting this new puff stitch slip cover I am in love with.

All items are available in my ETSY shop and so much more to come.

What are your dreams for Summer?

Family Getaway

We decided it was time for a family getaway so off we went to the most magical place on earth.
Disneyland and California Adventure Park
A week filled with singing and dancing, rides and swimming pools.
The boy had a good time.  He got to meet his first love, Woody
 But it definitely was not a magical the second time around.  He was getting bored by day 2 and asking if we could go back to the room so he could just play. 
He is at that age where he would rather have his toys and imagination than walking and rides. He loved meeting Characters and Disney Jr Live on Stage was a bit hit,

  But once he got on a ride he was all smiles and pure joy set in.  Most of the rides were shut down this year so it made it very congested and longer waits in lines for rides that usually you can walk right up to.  So next year I think we will skip Disney and head to a place that is more in tune with his age and likes.

The sun finally came out to enjoy a swim and slide on the waterslides, we couldn't drag him away.
  But once the sun started to go down he went from basking in the sun to this

He was so cold and tired he was not impressed with the Pixar parade at all.
We knew then that the fun was over time to head to the beach where so much fun was had

More days at the beach next time...
