Spring was great while it lasted

As I promised, some visuals. I decided to break out my page a day book after work today and did this page, as well as the page below. It’s been a while since I’ve done any quick collages and I was a bit rusty. This is why it is called Page A Day, not Page Every Six Months.

We’ve been and will be under heat advisory for today and tomorrow. I’m tired of summer already, yes two whole days later :p

Today my final rag bracelet fell off. Last year I posted a link to this tutorial to making a summer rag bracelet and I’ve been wearing some ever since. I started with solid black, solid gray, and black & white striped bracelets and they went great with my black jelly bracelets that I always wear. Slowly though, they’ve been ripping and unraveling, until today the final one basically disintegrated in one spot and fell off. Funny enough, it wasn’t at the knot. Well, summer is here again and it’s time to make some new ones! We should all make wishes when we put them on and when they fall off our wish will come true.

Also, with heat indexes in the hundreds, it might just be time to bake some cookies in your car :)

  1. Ooh we should try that sometime. I bet my black car would make some nice cookies!

    And as far as the heat goes, look at the bright side, you can’t mow the lawn with crutches! Too bad… ;)

  2. I used to wear rag necklaces all the time when I lived in Texas. One of my friends taught me how to make them. She used to cut her bandannas down to wear as headbands so the excess strips became rag necklaces. I remember the day that mine finally fell off in the shower. I had moved back to California and it was kind of like, “Oh, goodbye, Texas.”

  3. oh, i can’t stand this heat…icky…yuck.
    i wouldn’t be surprised if one was to leave groceries too long in the car, between errands, that something would cook- hard boiled eggs anyone?
