NEW RELEASE: This Is The Life Blog Hop!


Welcome to the This Is The Life release blog hop!

How is your summer?  Is it going as fast as mine?  We’ve been busy creating “bucket list” memories with our family.  Last year the end of summer came so quickly, we regretted not making more time for adventure and fun.  So this year, our family created a bucket list filled with summer activities like: Eating ice cream on the picnic tables uptown, sleeping in a tent in the back yard, watching a parade, viewing fireworks, visiting the new Columbus Zoo Safari exhibit, playing golf with daddy, and in an effort to keep things real for my kids, we also want to work in a soup kitchen in downtown Columbus together.  Despite battling a severe case of poison ivy (not from sleeping in the yard…but from pulling weeds;), I’m proud to say that we are experiencing many of the joys of summer together.   It’s pretty fun crossing things off that bucket list together and talking about the fun we’ve had.

Summer travel, cool treats, family time, pets, nature… these are themes that make me giddy to create this time of year.  I hope we’ve designed some products that will be fun for you to bring to life and share with your family, or just create for the sake of your soul :)   Will you join us for a blog hop that is intended to inspire you and get your mojo juices flowing?  I hope you are able to do things that make you happy and bring you joy….. Enjoy your summer!
