I honestly feel this post would be more aptly titled, “Holy moly – it’s July already?!” Where is this year going? With summer in full swing, we’re got visits and birthdays galore to look forward to. And bring on the cookouts this weekend!
When looking back on what a tremendous month June was here at Positively Splendid, I am still on cloud nine! I was honored – truly – to have my work featured on sites I have been admiring for ages. What a thrill to know that the things I create are inspiring y’all to tackle your own creative endeavors! That’s exactly what this is all about.
Here’s a look back on a few of last month’s projects…
(Click on each picture to head directly to its respective post)
I posted recipes ranging from marinara sauce from scratch and baby food to homemade insect repellent. How’s that for keeping all of the bases covered? 😉
I would like to extend a sincere thank you to my top referrers for the month of June…
Y’all would be remiss not to check out each and every one of these sites. Each is absolutely brimming with marvelous ideas and inspiration!
So what’s in store for July?
Expect a wearable reappearance of a design element from one of my past projects…
Green solutions to help you get through the dog days of summer…
More fun with freezer paper…
A fun kids’ project or two to prevent the inevitable mid-summer onset of “Bored-itis”…
And a few other projects I have dancing around in my head at the moment. 🙂
There is lots of fun ahead, so I’ll hope you stop in often!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support. I might sound like a broken record, but I could stand to say a thousand times over how much I appreciate each and every one of you!

Stopping by from New Friend Fridays to say hello. I’ve already been following you for a while! 🙂
Just wanted to say how much I love those citronella candles. I just repainted my patio furniture and one of those would be lovely to keep the giant Texas mosquitoes at bay! 🙂
So many cute projects. I’m glad I found your blog… and became a follower.

Stopping by from NFF for a visit. I can’t wait to check out all the sites you listed, plus take more time here, too.
I came from NFF and from making the world cuter. I am a new follower because I am pretty much in awe of everything I have seen so far.
I have a new “I want to be you” blog in my life now!
Seriously your stuff is great.
I am hosting a month long Christmas in July homemade gift event over at my blog.
I would love for you to stop by, especially my very first linky party today. I can’t imagine that anyone wouldn’t love any thing you made for a gift.
Great stuff…I know I keep gushing, don’t I??? Haha. Seriously amazing.
Hope you have time to stop by my blog.

I just love your patriotic pillows. I am going to have to make some, they are sooooo cute. You need to post those to one of my parties. My next one will open Sunday Night.
ALSO–the DIY Club inc party is opening on July 8th 7pm. One of the sponsors-Deco Art has a fabric medium (Stephanie used it on her pillows and I should hopefully have my other project done today and posted today or tomorrow (if the rain will hold off). You mixed the fabric medium with the decoart Americana paint and your fabric is soft, not crunchy. Any way, if you do another pillow using a DecoArt product (or any other sponsor product) you can enter the contest. There is a post this morning showing the prize package–it is AWESOME.
You can enter as many entries as you would like. You just have to use one product, from any of our six sponsors.
Your projects are always sheer perfection…each one has amazing attention to detail and is finished beautifully…with gorgeous PDF’s to go with! You are creative and amazing and we are lucky to have you in blog land!
