Rainy Day Thoughts

Rain, rain, please skidattle... I don't live in Seattle!


It's been raining here for a few days now and although I know I'm not supposed to whine and complain because we can really use the moisture, I am ready for sunshine!

But here's a little ray of sunshine for you. Meet Ava! She's totally loving the rain. She's out there dancing and singing and having a blast. Now, I'm not one to go dance and sing in the rain too often. When the skies turn gray and the rain is coming down soft and steady I'm ready to grab a good book and blanket. Or I like to write. Journal my thoughts, ideas, funny things I hear my kids say. So Ava helped me dress up this adorable notebook. I found these on clearance at Wal-Mart. They are called Hot Chocolate and a way fun line of notebooks, pens, address books and other things. So I didn't have to cover this notebook at all. I went with the polka dots (one my favorite things!) and pulled from their great colors. Fast and fun project. I hope you like it and I hope you try it.

You can find Ava and lots of her friends here.

Oh! And Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Oooh hot chocolate and a rainy day - what a great combo! :D These colors are so fun, they almost made me forget the dreariness outside my window right now. I love how you made it into a journal and color coordinated her to the polkas! I only wish my hair looked that good after being in the rain. haha!

I love the colors in this! They are so bright and cheery especially for a rainy day. I have to say solid bright bold colors are my style and I LOVE this journal. Excellent Job! :)
