What did you do this summer? Blog Give-Away!!

Love it when the kids go back to school. The sweet smell of victory of surviving another summer. The sweet satisfaction of living life with more daily structure. All these things are just poetic to my simple brain.

One of the first activities most kiddos do is "What did you do this summer?" I thought I would put a spin on it for Paper Vineyard. Post a comment here on our blog page or a photo/comment on our facebook page and we will randomly select someone and give you a great product PV bag. Easy-peasy to win a prize. We will select someone on Sunday Aug 7th.

Here is some insight into one of my summer projects. Setting up a craft room! I haven't had one in several years and I missed it. The last one I had (the only other time I had a craft room)I paid big bucks to have a closet built out with shelves. I had a huge desk and shelves of product. This time both the budget and room are smaller. The other slight change is that it has to double as an office/homework area and my grandbabies alternate bedroom. Minor tweaks. But checkmark ~ done! I am very happy with results.

The boys are using the computer and not "hindered" by any foo-foo crafting stuff.

Andreas little baby bed that is so cute it makes me smile when I am working and look over and see it.

Re-purposed some vases and baskets to house stamps and embellishments.

Only one picture hung up so far but I love this one and have owned it for over a decade. Two beautiful Indian girls working diligently but working with amazingly beautiful flowers.

The big picture. I had the boys go every two weeks to Ikea to buy a new piece so I could score my U-shaped desk. Just have the basics around me and a filing cabinet and one box underneath with my paper stash.

Don't forget to post a comment here or a photo and/or comment on Facebook by Sunday for a prize. I am pretty sure there is some brand new Bo Bunny product in that prize bag.

Thanks for reading,
