It's Summertime!

"In the summertime, when the weather is high,
You can stretch right up and touch the sky"
 In The Summertime lyrics by Mungo Jerry

Normally it would have been summertime for me here at least a month but our May has been really mild, which rocks. We're all hoping it summer will be nice, too. We usually have the drapes pulled in the living room... it faces west, so we do it to keep the sun and heat out. But I opened them the other day to take some pics of my baby lovebirds playing and, wow! it was nice to have some light in the house. Am realizing now that I've not been getting enough natural light, which is weird considering I'm in Mesa AZ, right? But the light was nice and the weather's been great. Am remembering how awesome a time summer is.

It's the time of bright colors and fresh air and rocking loud music =) A time to feel foot loose and fancy free, right? Well, that's what it means to me. So here are a coupld of things from my fellow Polymer Clay Smooshers shops that remind me of summertime!

From HarrisonHollowDesigns, an adorable, bright, and cheery butterfly plant poke, you can find a whole slew of these in this wonderful shop, all different!

From Lifeartdesigns a dainty red, pink, and white heart necklace, perfect to wear with your favorite summertime dress!

From popnicute an adorable coral colored necklace, I love this!

From averilpam, you all know how I love my mica powders, yes? And purple? So who doesn't love this combination?

A quick note about my new website, DesertRubble.com! I've been working on figuring out wordpress for my website and I've got something going, there will be lots more to come including a gallery and a store, but baby steps =) I'll be splitting my blogging efforts now between her and there, all my new work will be getting posted there but they will also be getting posted to my facebook, and if I have time here, too. But you can follow the new blog by subscribing to the RSS feed, following on networked blogs, or by following in facebook.

Have a fantastic summer!
