Summer Days

These summer days are so full of things to do! We've mostly been staying indoors because of the excessive heat. Example:
 Um, can I just say UGH! Yesterday there was a 30% chance of scattered thunderstorms, but today I didn't see that. We need rain so badly! My hydrangeas are dead and my rose bushes are not far from it. Oh well, that's what we get for move to Oklahoma!

I have been experimenting with my hair a lot lately. I'm so tired of boring pony tails or braids. I prefer my hair to be up off my neck in the summer so I've been pinning different ideas. I really like this style. It needs a little practice, I think. :)
 I especially like it dressed up with the headband.

Chloe Jo and I retried the suncatcher craft with translucent beads this morning. It is so pretty! The picture definitely doesn't do it justice.

I also tried to do melted crayon art this week. This is the pin that was my inspiration:

Um, it totally tanked. I'm going to have to find more detailed instructions on how to do it because this is what I came up with.
You can laugh! I won't be offended. It's horrible, yes? I don't know if I'll try it again. It seems fun to do, but what am I going to do with it after it is finished? It doesn't go with my decor at all. I was disappointed it was such a ginormous fail. I can usually salvage crafts that go awry.

I hope you all are having a great week so far. Stay cool if you can!
