Tips for gardening with succulents

We made it through our first week of summer break! I am really enjoying life’s slower pace while the kids are home – I love the idea that we are on a summer countdown. I’ve got 14 summers left with my littles and hope to enjoy them well.

I wanted to share a few things I’ve been up to lately. Here are some projects and posts I’ve written elsewhere this month:

Lastly, I made this DIY escort card kit in collaboration with Darby Smart. See the details and purchase the supplies (including an awesome set of stamps) to make your own – right here.

Have a happy summer weekend.

    Love the paper bleaching! I’ve tried doing photosensitive paper projects with my kids, which is always fun, but a little involved. This looks more mellow, which I’m into this summer!
