BE MY GUEST: 10 Summer Projects by bliss bloom {blog}

Hi Everyone! I hope you're having a great week. I'm Melanie and I share craft and creative ideas at bliss bloom {blog}. A big "Thank You" to Carolyn for inviting me over! homework is one of my favorite creative blogs and I love all of the innovative ideas and beautifully crafted projects that are shared here.

Let's talk about Summer... I'm not sure if it's just me, but crafting in the Summer is sometimes a challenge. There are just a few holidays to craft around and, for me personally, with my kids out of school, my blog time is usually pre-empted by family time. Honestly though, this is a good thing because stepping away from routine usually gets the creative juices flowing. Right? So now is a great time to think outside the box and try out new materials and ideas.

Here's a Round-Up of some of my favorite Summer Projects--

photo vases | egg carton succulent + roses | lyrics stenciled pillow | milk jug water lilies + votives | fern coasters | alcohol ink vases | craft punch journals | stone trivet | flag table runner | water color banner card
