The Campanile Summer Childrens Theatre - The Reluctant Dragon


It's been a busy weekend here. Zoey's play, The Reluctant Dragon was this weekend with performances Friday - Sunday which has meant a lot of driving around and meal prepping! And lots of fun of course! This is the culmination of three weeks of a summer theatre workshop that is put together through our local center for the arts program. It's amazing. So very happy that Zoey has the opportunity to be a part of this ever summer.

This is her third summer participating and next year will be the last year that she will be able to be an actor in it, but will be able to be a helper thereafter.

She played the part of the dragon this year which was so much fun for her! This years' play was very fun and somewhat comedic in nature. Perfect for summer!

Best part according to Zoey was her mock fight scene with her good friend Ava.

And a picture of some of her friends that came to the show! Love that our community supports the arts!!!

T-Shirt Tote Bag Craft


Working as a teen librarian I get to come up with different program ideas that usually have to fit into a somewhat small budget. I saw the idea for making tote bags using old t-shirts on Pinterest and thought it would be the perfect project for my teens!

So easy...find a t-shirt that you no longer wear or pick one up at your local thrift shop, (which is what I did)...

and cut around the arms, neck and then cute fringe along the bottom of the t-shirt. Tie off ends of your cut pieces of fringe in a single knot, and then tie again, only this time tie the neighboring fringed piece with the other neighboring fringed piece so that you no longer see any little holes in the bottom of your bag.

For another variation of this project you could tie off your fringed ends on the inside of your bag. So fun and EASY!!

A Fun Scrappy Share!

Pretty pumped about discovering that I was the winner of the giveaway posted on Lisa Dickinson's blog the other day! Woot..woot! Super excited especially to get to play with the alphabet stamp set that was designed by none other than Lisa herself! Pretty if only my scrappy mojo would make itself known again, and SOON!

What is it that you do that helps to bring on your creative mood when it disappears? For me, I usually check out favorite scrappy blogs or Instagram accounts, print photos and get some REST!! I think that's my problem today, just too tired to feel it. 

Have a good night! Here's to a creative tomorrow...
