Creating a Life Blog Headers {and summer art!}

One of my favorite parts of blogging is creating a header {sometimes referred to as a banner} that represents the current season or projects I've recently completed, etc. 

I try to use
some of my very favorite photos when creating a header, and so I thought it would be fun to gather some of them together here. Sort of like a Creating a Life memory book : )

This isn't all of them, and they won't necessarily be in the order they've appeared, because I'm just not that organized- darn it! But I hope you'll enjoy a little Creating a Life photo tour of the past 19 months {has it really been that long?} 

The one below, from summer of 2013, is probably my all-time favorite. Come take a little stroll down memory lane with me! 

Can you guys tell how much I love those little PicMonkey birds? {smile}

This last one is probably my second favorite. How about you? What's your favorite Creating a Life header? 

Since I don't yet have a separate page for photography, I am going to create a permanent "page" for headers {it will be displayed in the tabs at the top of my blog} and just keep adding to it. For me, each little collage is like a mini piece of art representing my blogging journey. I love that! 

Speaking of art...... 

what are your kids doing this summer? 

Especially this summer {when I don't think we're going to be able to make any trips-boo!!} MY kids will be looking for some extra creative things to fill the long summer days. Enter the Summer Art Camp for Kids over at Jeanne Oliver's creative network!

This video course is taught by author and paper artist Courtney Walsh, and begins June 17th. It's for ages 5-adult and will cover 5 mixed media projects. My kids are going to be in heaven getting to do some art directed by someone other than their mom ;) The course is very affordable, and they're even including some special templates for boys, which my 7 year old Silas will appreciate, being the only boy in a world full of girls over here! 

Right now Jeanne is doing a super exciting HUGE art supply giveaway! You won't need any "fancy" art supplies for this course, but it would sure be awesome to win some cool new stuff to play with, right?!

Head over to Jeanne Oliver Designs to get the scoop on all the details. Get ready to make some fun art AND create some awesome summer memories with your kids! 

See ya soon, friends.
