new art prints

During the past few weeks, I have been enjoying the summer, working on holiday cards (stay tuned for that!), and adding lots of new art prints to my Zazzle shop. The collection includes typographic art, photography, kid's art, and much more. Here are some of my favorites...

my summer bucket list

Yesterday was the first day of summer, and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with a summer bucket list...

2 Go to the lakes... Lake Poway, Lake Miramar, and Santee Lakes
3 Spend more time with friends
4 Visit the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park often (Our passes expire in the fall!)
5 Get a jump-start on my Zazzle Christmas collection
6 Take a trip up to LA
7 Go swimming as much as possible
8 Meet my friend's new baby (The little guy should arrive within the next few weeks!) 
9 Finish a few craft projects that I've been procrastinating on
10 Have a picnic with my extended family
11 Go to the San Diego County Fair
