Hi Crystal:
As you know I am a friend and a follower of yours. But I will post this on my blog too over at http://holidayfloralpieces.blogspot.com/ so anyone that comes and visits will see your cool give away.
In the summer I love to be able to go up north when we can to visit Family and friends, My husband and I go to Orlando for day trips to Disney or Universal and also go to Busch Gardens in Tampa Fl.I love to entertain and have big picnics and enjoy our family and friends. At sometime in the summer We get company from Jersey for about a week or 10days that come and stay with us. And last but not least I love to be able to work in my gardens. This is what I like to do in the Summer.
God Bless you.
Hugs : )

I posted this in the wrong post area. Oh well, here goes again:

I forgot to add what I like to do in the summer. I love to take the dog for walks and also do some camping when time allows. Sitting by the campfire in the evening is so enjoyable.

Hi Crystal! Congrats on your blogaversary and all the hits! Wow!!! This is wonderful candy here! Someone will be very excited!!!

What I love to do in the summer is go to Maine and just soak in all of God's glorious beauty along the seashore. I used to live there and miss it so much... once we drive over that bridge into Kittery Maine I can just smell "home" and I love to walk barefoot in the sand, sit on the rocks and watch the waves roll in... oh and have a lobstah or two!!! Besides that I love to have my grandkids come to my house... they come for two weeks every summer and we swim, boat, play games, do crafts, read and just cuddle.

I'm posting your candy right now! Thanks for the chance to win! God bless your blog and the ministry you can have through it!

I'm so excited for you to have over 2000 hits on your blog & join the ranks of offering blog candy to others. Fun, fun!!!!!

As for what I like to do in the summer..... Normally I would say that I like to relax from homeschooling the kids, but since ds graduated & dd is at school this semester, I'm already relaxing! Guess that means that I will find a new something to do this summer, right? I may spend more time at the pool & work on a tan. Haha Or maybe I'll finally read those classics I've always wanted to read --Jane Austin, Jules Verne, some American poets, and others.

Love ya, Sister - L

In the summer I like to: BBQ, sleep-in, sit in my patio and read, watch the kiddos and grand-kiddos play in the pool, and of course stamp.

Congratuations on all your Celebratories!!

What do I like about summer? Summer break comes to mind. It's a whole different season, each season with it's own things. In the summer...summer camp, swimming pools, short day trips, fresh tomatoes, corn & squash, BIRTHDAYS!

Come visit me at Cow Pies.


What colorful fun blog candy...

Hello, Crystal!

Happy celebrations for all your good events! I think I love the warm kiss of summer sun and not wearing coats. Since I am currently unemployed I will have more time to spoil my boys this summer ( age 13 and 15 ). Something fun about watermelon running down your chin that makes you feel all summery. Your candy looks so lovely!

Lets see, I enjoy the warmer weather, and being outdoors with my kids. My daughter will be 4 May 5th and she loves being outside. We will play and relax in the pool, my son is 9 months old but I am sure he will enjoy the pool too... and Ice cream!!!
You have plenty of events to celebrate and such lovely blog candy to share. Thank-you for the opportunity to play...
Hugs, Christina

Hello dear, I just came across your blog from a friend of mine and have been looking around your blog and girl you do such beautiful work and your coloring is just gorgeous dear. I have become a follower for I would love to visit regularly.

As for your blog candy well big congrats on your hits in such a short time dear that is just awesome.

In the summer I like to spend time with my granddaughter watching her ride her bike(which she just learnt last year to do) if I lived in a place I could plant a garden I would sure be doing that for I would love to have some fresh veggie's but for now in my spare time I just stamp and do my challenges. Hope to see in you them if you would like to join dear Hugs

I like to bike on bike trails, read a lot, go camping in different places with my family, have cookouts and just enjoy family and friend time. Lynn

Nikki said...

What I plan on doing this summer is enjoying as much of the outdoors as I can, rollarblading, late nite strolls with the DH and lazing about in the backyard with a good book . And when I have the time hiding in my little corner with my crafts :)

Thanks for the chance

Wow you've been busy! Lots going on for you. Congrats on 3 months of blogging! It's fun, isn't it??

Great candy! I've yet to try the Nestabilities, they look great!!
In the summer....well, we are a Navy (military) family, so I like to go home...visit with my Mom and my siblings with their families. We have cookouts and hit the beach, it's really my recharge for the year. I miss them!


Glitter Spilly said...

I would like to try the veggie garden this summer and it is my 1st time to do it. Hope I do have a green thumb and harvest some good veggies. Can't wait to see your new kitchen.

Julie Temple said...

Hi Crystal,
I'm taking your advice and making time to look at blogs and get inspired! I love summer for the different activities: gardening, swimming, helping my daughter with her 4H projects and joining in with their club activities, reading in the backyard in the shade at least 2 afternoons during the summer (my goal every summer)! I like the different pace of the season. By the end of the school year, I'm starting to feel burned out with lesson plans and encouraging progress even when the warmer weather is calling us to come and play! It provides a much needed break to recharge my ambition and enthusiasm for education and to be ready to hit the new school year in the fall! Brenda

isabel said...

Oh! I'm sorry I've not told you I love to go to the sea in summer, it's so relaxing...

Tori Wild said...

What fun blog candy!! I love watermelon and corn on the cob in the summer--- Sitting outside on my deck... and sending the kids outside so that I can clean my house!! :) Maybe I should move someplace warm, that would be nice year round!

I enjoy spending time in the Summer by the pool...just relaxing..and espcially with Ashy my granddaughter...she loves the pool.
I enjoy looking at your blog as well..thanks..

Michelle said...

Congrats on all your special milestones!! What do I like to do in the summer? Sleep in!!!!!!!! I get up so early during the school year & I HATE it!!! Once I am up, I love to play outside with my kids, putz in the garden, & just hang out watching the birds. Adding a link to my sidebar right now....

Lena Katrine said...

Congratulations! And what a great candy!!

In summer - besides crafting - I love to spend time in our 23 feet long boat on the see, eating schrimps and drinking a glas of wine!
Hmmm, longing!

Have agreat day!

Hi! I'm not going to try for the blog candy, although it is awesome! But I wanted to say hello! I found your site through Tori's Wild Stamping Sprinkles' post and I have enjoyed looking at your cards. Your Ohio Buckeyes badge caught my eye too. I'm a big NC State fan and we went to your stadium for the game a few years ago. What a great stadium you have! And everyone was so nice to us, maybe because we lost! :) But it was a great game and a good trip. I'll be back to see more of your beautiful art. Thanks so much!
