My Summer Wish...Inspired by a New Mama and Papa :)

You learn somewhere along the way that in the course of your life as a blogger writer and a blogger write that you are going to stumble upon some not so good blogs, some good blogs, some blogs that are great and then the ones that TRULY inspire you. The Pink and Green Mama Blog is just that. Of course as you all know I have a few others I like but this is my most recent find and immediately I fell in love.

I saw a bunch of cute ideas and things to inspire my soul and I just had to jump right in. Most of the classes and ideas are for home schoolers but as I wrote on the Facebook Page that the kid in me had to join and they wholeheartedly agreed.

I had seen that one of the ideas they did was to write down all the things they wanted to do for summer and I knew right away I had to make my own version of that too! I had the Perfect Paper Stock and the PErfect Stickers and the Perfect Markers

.What's ON my list?
  • Blow Bubbles
  • Do Nothing
  • Write Letters
  • Make Paper Airplanes or Cranes
  • Read under a shade tree
  • BBQ
  • Do some Volunteeering
  • Eat Watermelon
  • Make Popsicles
  • Have a Water Balloon toss
  • Run through the sprinklers
  • Chase down an Ice Cream Truck
  • Sleep late on a Sunday
  • Make a Summer Mix CD
  • Swing
  • Catch a Firefly
  • Create Art
  • Light a Sparkler
  • Go CAmping
  • Take online Classes
  • Have an outdoor picnic
  • Dance in the rain
  • Go for a Hike or on a trail
  • Take some amazing Photos-then make a summer video out of it
  • Mini Golf
  • Bird Watch
  • Plant a Garden
  • Roast Marshmallows
  • Fly a Kite
  • Bike Ride
  • Slip n Slide
  • Wash Car for Fun
  • Go to a Ballgame
  • Learn a new skill
  • Relax
So why don't you be creative and get your resources together either for yourself or with your kids and find a creative way to make your summer wish list. Check out the The Pink and Green Mama Blog for ideas on how to do it and other great summer ideas for you OR your kids OR the KID INSIDE YOU!!

Fun "In the Sun"-A FREE Online Class for Creatives-Leftovers

These images and info were the Leftovers that I neglected to do before

My Intro Page
I still haven't added any words to my Into Page because I am not sure what to say (I know rare for me) but I have it done and wanted to show you.
01 - Introduction

Alter Ego
Then this is my Alter Ego pages...
05 - Alter Ego

I chose a blond girl with her face slightly hidden out of a magazine to represent me. I have a hard time seeing myself as anything but Blond even in another universe of me I guess.

My Alter Ego would be a young girl, her name would be Lari because when I was born I was actually given the name Lariena then it was changed. She would sing & dance & play piano, she would speak French fluently, she would be a successful Fashion Stylist running her own business, wear all the great styles, have people swarm to her like bees, she enjoys every aspect of life, doesn't let anything get under her skin and is always at ease, is Creative in all things she does & on her days off like to Create in her Studio & puts out amazing Artwork. She is financially secure & drives a cute little car she helped design herself that is White with Pink Striping and her nickname "Bunny" on the driver side door. She has a sense of belonging, is at ease with where her relationships are with others and is Stable and Secure in herself.

Ideal Vacation Spots
06 - Ideal Vacation Spots

My Ideal Vacation Spots

Greece is some place I have always wanted to go...

Anyone who knows me knows how much I dearly love Paris. I have been once and aspire to go again some day once I have learned French and can speak it well
 I have always had a fondness for Greece. I want it to be Magical when I go there for Magical reasons....

And as I said above, anyone who knows me knows how much I love Paris. You will see and find Eiffel Towers and pictures of French words and Cafe's in MUCH of my artwork. I am learning French and really want to speak it fluently. I have been to Paris in 1988 when I was 18 right after High School and I so desire to go there again someday.

Maybe I need to learn a bit of Greek too if I plan on going to Greece, huh? I didn't think of that literally til JUST now. LOL...hmmm...That might be a challenge, Greek and French?!?!?

So that is what I have for now and will work on my Week 2 Prompts tonight and tomorrow to finish up if I can. :)
