Inspirational Monday

Hey all! :) Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend. We had fun. Lots of delicious foodie to be had! Aydie Pie was afraid of the loud illegal firecrackers some of the neighbors were lighting off, but he was a trooper and just sat in daddy's lap and watched. Timmy, of course wanted to light all the firecrackers himself, but was okay with just lighting off some smoke bombs. HeeHee It was a good fun time for all of us and the watermelon was so sweet. YUM. Plus we had tons of fun with sparklers. My first time with this technique. So cool.
This is Aric. He was total game for taking pictures. Ha. He had a steady hand. Can't wait to do more. I'm not sure I'll be ble to hold of till next year. Anyone got any leftover sparklers? HaHa
Today is my first "Monday Inspirational Post". Let's hope this goes well and you definitely get inspired.
There are a few blogs of interest that I'd love to share with you. Blogs that I just happened upon. And happily so. They're the type of blogs that you immediately bookmark and then lose track of how long you've been there. They're the type of blog that make you want to make something creative on the spot and makes your brain go into idea overload. The type of blog that keeps you coming back for more and definitely the type of blog you want your blog to be like. HeeHee These girls inspire me in everything they share and when I grow up I want to be like them. :) Here they are...
Kaori Watanabe- Her misting skills are awesome. She has a great style and her photos are lovely.
Have a peek at her blog- Harmonie
One of my faves of hers...

Anna Maria- She's beautiful. Her photos are delightfully fun. Her style makes my heart smile. I wish I could understand her language.

I came across this wonderful tutorial for a play tent a few weeks ago and thought it would be a wonderful summer project. Also think they'd make great gifts. How fantastic!
See the tutorial by Christina on her blog Two Little Hooligans (love the blog name).
Have you guys seen this?
It's by Prima Marketing!! Are you kidding me? It's so fabulous. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but I just happened upon it a few days ago. All of it is so fabulous. The website for it is called Prima Stationary and you can can see it all HERE. I haven't found a place where it's for sale yet, so if you know could you link us in a comment?
That's all I've got for now. I hope you've been inspired. If you have any links where you've been recently inspired please feel free to share them in the comments section. I'd love to see where you draw inspiration from. :)
Until Wednesday....
