Show + Tell No. 124: Summer DIY Ideas

You guys, time flies. It really does. I don’t know if it’s the addition of kids in my life, or age, but the days seem to slip away faster than ever. I can hardly believe that we’re already mid-way through July…Back-to-school is really right around the corner and I can’t decide if that makes me happy, or if I want to cry.

In the spirit of living in the moment, I am highlighting a few of the fun summer DIY ideas that were shared in last week’s Show + Tell Party.

I am in love with fruit infused waters. In love.
