It’s that time of year. We are all itching for it to warm up just a wee bit more so that we can kick off summer with a bang. In fact, the more you think about summer, the more you can FEEL it…
You slide your toes deeper into the cool sand as the heat of the sun brushes across your face. You take a sip of your refreshing mint mojito as you look out into the clear, blue waters. AAAHH, this just might be heaven!
Growing up in Nebraska, summers didn’t always mean going to the beach. Instead, summers often meant long days lounging by the pool with a group of friends or a good book. Either way though, I can never get enough of summer with its long days and fun nights.
BBQs, boating on a lake, swimming in the surf or just watching the glow of the fireflies as dusk takes over all have me craving for those summer nights (Cue Grease Song)
That’s why I’m pairing up with the UBER talented, Maggie, over at Stitches to Be for this month’s FREE GIVEAWAY.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the giveaway raffle
I’ve known Maggie personally for years now and what she creates with just a bit of yarn is astounding!!!! If I were a kid, I’d kill for her mermaid tale blankets. As a teen, her scarves or boot cuffs are adorable! As an adult, I may or may not have had her do a personalized Breastfeeding Beanie because….well, it’s funny as hell and I can feed my kid where I want, thank you very much!
Needless to say, she’s got quite the talent and range of products sooooo you should probably head on over to her Facebook page to see if she has anything that tickles your fancy.
Whether you have a trip to the beach planned or a day at the lake, you’ll want this beautiful hand-made, beach inspired tote bag! Fill it up with towels and other water goodies or use it to take your favorite side dish to the next group potluck. Regardless of what you decide to use it for, it will put you in the summer mood.
