Let's here it for SUMMER!

******************CONTEST NOW OVER. WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON! THANK YOU! ********************
So sorry for being missing in action lately! The end of May/first of June means the end of school and an insane (if fun!) schedule. And even though my kiddos are still in school (until the 8th thanks to all the snow we had here in Kentucky this winter!), we're getting into summer fever here! That includes trips to the pool, home improvement projects, popsicles, sprinkers AND spring, er, SUMMER cleaning!

Which means - I have a huge box of miscellaneous goodies that are looking for a good home! They range from BasicGrey to Lily Bee and then some!

To make this box yours, just enter your name along with what you're summer plans on in the comment section by Friday, June 4th at 11:59 PM Eastern! I'll draw a winner no later than Monday morning!

Have a fantastic (short) week!
xoxo,
k.

We are doing stay-cations this year. Lots of water parks, pools, state park trips. Lots of pool playing at home, finding things to do around our town.

Our last day is June 8th as well, just our normal, no snow day add ons. I hope you have a wonderful summer break!!

Shannon Hager said...

Our last day of school is Friday this week! This summer will be filled with trips to the beach, football practice, and BBQ's.

Lara Hodges said...

Swim, Swim , Swim and then some more swimming :) Thanks so much, Kelly, for such a great giveaway!!!

Scrapthat said...

Well if summer ever gets here we have BIG plans...our little gal is just big enough to really enjoy the water park and the pool this year (19 mos. right now) so there is that...and the zoo, the aquarium and the beach! Now if the sun would just cooperate!
Thanks for the chance to win some goodies! :)

Shelley said...

We have plans to visit family. I have plans for some summer organizing. The children have plans for lots of swimming and playing with cousins and friends!

sillypea said...

Lots of backyard play, water gun fights and soccer ball kicking here... we live for summer. Glad you are back in blog land.

Miss Misi said...

My plans are to stay cool and work on this backlog of photos that I have staring at me.

Misti said...

We're mostly just sticking around home & having playdates with friends. My son is supposed to go stay with my parents in OK for a week, so that will be like a little vacation!

Sarah and the rest of the family said...

This is the first summer in a few years that we've signed up for. . . NOTHING!! No summer camps, no soccer, no VBS, nowhere to be. We are sleeping in (until 6:30), travelling when we want to, doing what we want. We have plans for the art museum, the zoo, gramma and granddad's, nana and papa's, swimming, fishing, hiking, legos, playdoh, and fingerpaints.

dawnelaine said...

My plans for summer include preparing for my daughter's wedding, which is actually next weekend (June 12th). While I am VERY sentimental about her leaving our home, I am quite excited about all of her STUFF leaving! Reclaimed space!! So, I would have plenty of room for your discarded goodies - they would find a good home here! :)
PS After seeing your lovely wedding post using BG Capella, I made sure to get the collection for my daughter's wedding photos. Love your designs!

Amber said...

My summer plans include aspirations of summer cleaning (ha!) and lots of outdoors activities (beach, kayaking, etc.)

Jennifer Cowan said...

Moving across state (which I am not looking forward too) and lots of time at the Lake (which I am looking forward too!)

bex said...

My summer will start of with my son's 2nd birthday with a little party for his little friends and then a family day out to see Thomas the Tank Engine. But what I'm most looking forward to is our Wedding Day, after 10 years of 'living in sin' I'm looking forward to becoming Mrs Williams !! x

Kelly Massman said...

Our summer plans include a trip to michigan and trying to keep a teenager busy (he waited too late to get a summer job)! No fun! Maybe I should have him scrapbook with me. Then, at least I could have fun while I'm trying to keep him away from electronics 24/7! I mean 7/24 would be ok... :-) Thanks for a chance to win!

Nicole said...

TOday is our first official summer vacation day. We are not sure what our summer plans are. We cannot go on a big vacation this year so it will probably consist of alot of cheap and or free little day trips.
I am glad for the time away from the daily routine. I am hoping to get alot of scrapbooking done too.
Have a great day.
~Nicole M

Sarah Mullanix said...

Ooooh, a yummy giveaway, can't pass up those fabulous products! My summer consists of trying to not run my 3 kiddos to too many activities and enjoy more outdoor cookouts and watching the kids play in the yard than I can take!! Then when the heat holds us all hostage inside our homes here in about a month, I plan to scrap like crazy! That sounds like a perfect summer to me! :)

HallMom said...

We are going on a mission trip as a family this summer.

I'm spending the summer cooking this baby, lol. My 3rd trimester starting in late June. I'm pretty sure that I'll easily be found in front of a fan. I'm going to try to take the kids to the water park and pool as often as I can too.

toniw said...

A little vacation to Wisconsin, lots of home improvement projects (hopefully), a bunch of cook-outs and going out for ice cream with some beach and pool days thrown in.

We've got four weddings to go to this summer, 3 of which are out of state!! Crazy, but should be an adventure!! I'm also having a hard time getting my scrapbooking jumpstarted and hope to jump in this summer, and would LOVE to add some stuff to my stash to inspire me to get going!!

You guys get out way earlier than they do here! My husband is a teacher and his last day with students is June 22nd and that's NOT because of snow! That's the scheduled date!

Cindee Stacey said...

We had planned on spending lots of time at the pool, but unfortunately, my 11 yr old had to have open heart surgery last week so we'll be laying low for about 6 weeks. Luckily, we're going to Disney (FL) in October so we have that to look forward to! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

I can't believe your kiddos are almost out of school! When I was a kid we were always in school until almost the end of June ... Kids these days have it so lucky :) I just finshed overhalling my scrapbook room this weekend too and guess what ... there's an empty shelf that would be more than happy to accomodate your pile :) Have a great day and thanks!

Jennifer DeWolfe said...

Oh I guess I forgot to mention my summer plans ... oops :) I think we are just planning on staying close to home this year and doing some camping :)

Becs Attwood said...

Sounds like lots of fun...on my side of the world we're just starting winter...it's wet & cold & summer is but a distant dream. But to look on the bright side, I've got a good excuse to stay indoors & be crafty! Have a great summer.

Jan said...

Winter here in Oz Kelly, so rugging up by the fire with some yummy pumpkin soup!

Heidi Y said...

Because of all the snow days, my kids are still in school til mid-June. But we still plan to have some fun - mostly in the area. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Anonymous said...

I don't have any huge summer plans....yet... We have two diferent rounds of company coming in July. I am super excited about seeing these family members. I just hate they are so close together. We are still recovering from moving, so boxes and decorating are in my future.

I hope you have a great Summer with your family and thanks for the fun give-away.

Kirsten N said...

We are heading south next week for a short holiday.

KatherineL said...

Beach, Mountains and no schedules! Only two more days of school and the kids are hard at work on their "Summer Fun" to-do lists. I can't wait to see all of the great things we are going to do. Maybe they will include some scrap time for me :)

Kim M said...

We are going to spend our summer around the house, relaxing and hoping to get in lots of swim time.

Caro said...

Hey chickie!

My plans for the summer? Spending it at our campground in Vermont, discovering waterfalls, fishing, swimming in the lake and pool, building fires, hunting for beach glass... lots of fun!!

Debi said...

The highlight will probably be going to Yellowstone National Park for a few days. I'm hoping for lots of gardening, and hopefully scrapbooking.

Ruth said...

my (down under) winter plans are to capitalise on the fact that i have just recently cleaned my scrapping table (a wonderous thing for me) and crack open a recent 2peas order full of origins stuff and make me some layouts!!

Kim Linton said...

I plan to spend time outdoors being part of my community enjoying the (free!) summer concerts and movies our park district offers (and I hope to craft a bit here and there!).

Candy said...

If I can keep ahead of the mowing, I hope to get some more photography practice and get some LO's made with lots of journaling

Summer Braxton said...

From the title I thought this post was all about ME! LOL. It can be, if you choose my comment. Hee hee. We will be blessed with many visitors (one right after the other) this summer. I love having visitors since we are in a new state and it gets a little lonely.

Ilona said...

Trip to Washington DC with kids, lots of trips to the pool, strawberry picking, zoo, fires, smores, theater camp for my outgoing boy & science camp for my brillant girl. Plus lots of pictures & hopefully some scrapping time for me!

Lots of swimming and season passes to Idlewild (an amusement park)

Kristen said...

Our summer plans include lots of time with water, in many forms! It's HOT here all summer! But my biggest goal is to start getting up earlier to get my runs in...running + heat is not my idea of fun, but I have to keep pressing on towards my goal of my first Half Marathon in October...woot woot!

I'm hoping to fit in some sort of vacation this summer, but I'm also trying to fit in swim lessons for my girls, plus a few VBS sessions, plus theater camp...sigh...maybe it'll be a staycation...

Meghann said...

Hi Kelly! We just bought our first house, and we have a lot of work cut out for us this summer! We also plan on taking a break to visit California. Thanks for the giveaway!

My family's summer plans are to take a day trip every week. First will be a museum about an hour or two away to see a Lego exhibit. Also trips to the local library, the pool, the park, and anywhere else our whimsy takes us.

This summer we'll have lots of fun camping with our grandchildren, tending to our garden and going on a little trip to the Okanagan Valley to get some fruit for preserving. And reading and scrapbooking and sewing and taking lots of pictures :) Thanks for asking!

isannasday said...

We have still a month to go untill summer holiday. And it is a little bit chilly still in the Netherlands.
But we can't wait untill summer.

Tara Orr said...

we'll most likely do a staycation and visit the waterpark and/or park daily! Backyard pool (the one that mommy has to spend 2 hrs blowing up and almost passing out in the process) is also a must on days where its too hot to move!

Well we're actually getting ready for the cold to hit here in Australia. Makes us long for summer all the more!!

I'm hoping to spend lots of time at the beach this summer. My birthday is Saturday so I'd love to be your winner!!!!

Kate Anne said...

Enjoying the great outdoors, even if it's just in the park!!

Anonymous said...

Here in Germany the kids have only 6 weeks of summer holidays. Every country starts at a different time so there is less traffic on our highways. - That means my three kids will have to go to school for 5 more weeks now. - While our holidays we will go on vacation for tree weeks to a very cosy little farm in the south of Germany. Just relaxing for the grown ups (no computers and no telephone) and playing for the children. Feeding animals, visiting the playmobil fun park, going swimming in a lake nearby, taking picknicks at a river, taking part in scrapbook workshops for kids ...

Greetings from Gemany,

Gabriela Duve

Patti Clay said...

IF we ever get out of school (too many snow days) we will travel to Texas to see family and to VA to see my dear friend of 30 years (gasp!). My boys are getting older so I am sure they have plans of their own that I have yet to hear about!

Lynn said...

Plans for this summer are based on my 18year old triplets getting the grades they need for University. They are all coming away with us for some time in Devon and this may be the last break we all take as a family!

kristiina said...

I will enjoy the summer with my baby girl. I couldn't be happier.

NikkiH said...

We have alot of things planned for the summer :) We still have about 14 days left of school, so there are school events, and the end of Spring Baseball for both boys. The boys will be going off to sports camp for a week and going on a week long trip after that with my MIL. We have TONS of camping and beach trips planned.

We are hoping to get a Disney trip in and LOTS of swimming :) I also have the boys signed up for summer reading at the library. They love to read and this sounded like such a good idea. I plan to relax and read a ton too :)

I can't wait! I love the summer time!

Lauren Kost-Smith said...

My husband and I are graduate students, so summer (when we don't have classes) is usually our busiest time. :( Oh well, we're still hoping to find small times to get away. And of course, summer always means lots of softball!

Mindy said...

Summer for me includes visits to a local splash park, fun day trips with my kids, a trip to Gatlinburg, lots of mountain biking and a little part-time work :)

Shelley said...

Our summer doesn't start till the end of June. We have plans to go swimming, hiking, and camping. I love being outdoors!

Janene said...

Who doesn't love goodies. My summer plans... an IVF cycle! Started shots today and hoping this journey is a successful one. So needless to say - taking it easy and scrapping a lot.

Colby said...

My summer plans include trying to keep my flowers alive in this heat. Already in the 90s in TN and it looks like it's going to be a brutal summer. Better get a kiddie pool for the dogs...

But I'm looking forward to late summer/early fall for a trip to the Grand Canyon...never seen it and I can't wait!

Sarah said...

I'm going to California for two weeks to see my little brother get married and travel around the state. I will have lots to scrap with the inherited goodies, if I win. Thanks for the chance!

This summer I will be going to a lot of parks and lakes with my one-year-old son. I will also be learning how to box from my husband, and then in return I will be teaching him how to take pictures with our Canon G10.

Hope you have a good summer :)

Arjanne said...

I don't know yet. My summer will hopefully start around July 10th, but before that there's a lot to be done! But I would like to make some trips to the pool and some picknicks!

Barb in AK said...

Hi Kelly! I'm planning to ---- scrap!
I sure could use a box of goodies ;-)
This month, I am taking an online class and will end up with 13 new layouts! In July, I will be going to a 4-day retreat in KS to crop with ladies from a scrapping site I visit every day. In August, I will be traveling with my dh. I plan to take LOADS of photos, so I can scrap some more! :-)
Here's wishing you a scrap-happy summer, too!

FrancescaVe said...

My plan is to play with my 2 dd, pools, games, beach, fun and some scrap projects.

Happy summer to you!

anniekate said...

I'm going to play with my baby girl! I'm a teacher and this is my first summer home as a mommy. Can't wait!

CynthiaMarie said...

Summer here in the northwest is just about the best time of year for me. Tending my garden is a wonderful way to stay outside and remember the summer stories I want to scrap. My job even takes me outside 2 days a week - just another reason to love summer.

Paula said...

No plans on leaving home, so a big box of miscellaneous goodies would surely help getting the scrapbook pages done! Thanks for the chance!

Anonymous said...

We all look forward to the break from a set daily routine and getting away from it all for a few days:) We're headed to Savannah, GA and Tybee Island for a few days this year--looking forward to some touring local sites, fun in the sun on the beach, and we certainly can't pass up some of Paula Deen's cooking ya'll! LOL!

Hope it's ok I'm from Canada. I'll be going to the Philippines in August, to visit my relatives. It should be a fun trip :)

School is out today! We will enjoy a fun but long trip to see both sets of parents/grandparents in a few weeks! Hope you have a great summer, too!

KathyL said...

I think our plans include a little bit of everything. A weekend get away, some home projects, swimming, playing and some travel ball.

Kelly said...

One of the perks of being a teacher: having your summer off! I'm renting an RV and taking my two boys from Florida to visit family in Michigan and then heading cross-country to see lots of the National Parks in South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and then start working our way home. Daddy's planning on flying out to go to Yellowstone with us but the majority of the 5 week trip will be just me and my boys (7 and 10-should be interesting)!

And our last day isn't until the 15th-wah!
