Halfway Through: Bold. Brilliant. Beautiful. You. | this heart of mine

We are (over) halfway through with our year of Bold. Brilliant. Beautiful. You. Can you believe it? The year is rushing by but we’ve done a lot. We’ve shared our goals for the year (January). We wrote and declared our I Am statements (February) and then we got extra vulnerable with I Need statements (March). We examined what boldness means to us (April). And most recently, we discussed people who inspired us with their boldness (May).

Now we are half done so let’s reflect:

What have you learned about yourself?

Have you discovered/uncovered anything you weren’t aware of before?

Are you still searching for something?

Is there something you would like to discuss?

I have enjoyed the community we’ve built. The willingness to be openness and the outpouring of support is lovely. It’s like what the world should be like – open, honest and supportive. Thank you so much for jumping in on this journey with me. Thank you for your excitement, thank you for your sharing and thank you for your energy. You’ve made this project better.

We have more planned for the coming months and I look forward to continuing the journey.

Endless Summer Projects: Water Balloon Games | Classic Play - Pars Caeli - Lulu the Baker - Alexandra Hedin - this heart of mine

Water balloons are one of my favorite parts of summertime. It’s a colorful ticking water bomb just waiting to explode. If you’re fast enough and have decent aim, you can soak innocent bystanders (family and friends = innocent bystanders) all in the name of fun. I even enjoy the way the balloons explode, the way the water erupts. It’s like moving art.

MJ of Pars Caeli gathered 6 fun games to play with water balloons this summer (beyond the simple throw-it-at-your-friend game). She even has a way to make getting the balloons filled exciting! Head on over and check it out. And have a blast!

This project is a part of Endless Summer Projects, a collaboration between Alexandra Hedin, Classic Play, Pars Caeli, Lulu the Baker, and This Heart of Mine to bring you fabulous summer projects for the whole family for the whole summer.

Summer Scarf with Henry Happened | this heart of mine

I got a new gig. And it’s cool.

Once a month, I will be sharing a DIY over on Henry Happened and my first went up last Tuesday. It is a tutorial for a simple summer scarf using my favorite fabric paints, Pebeo Setacolors, the transparent variety. The scarf is light and the colors sunny. A perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

Alt Summit Summer 2014

Alt Summit Summer 2014 | this heart of mine

Most images by Justin Hackworth and Brooke Dennis, the photographers of Alt Summit. More found here in the Alt Summit Flickr stream.

What a whirlwind week! I spent last Tuesday through Friday in Salt Lake City at the first Alt Summit Summer. Alt Summit Summer is just like the flagship conference in January but, you guessed it, set in summertime. It was another fantastic trip and I can almost claim mastery and complete tranquility of the soul while flying. Almost.

Like the winter version, Alt Summit Summer boasted informative panels, face-to-face conversations with colleagues (the best!) and sponsor representatives and beautiful details every which way you turned.

Minted is the premier marketplace for independent design and art. They sell the best work of indie designers and artists as fine stationery, art, and party decor. Their newly-launched collection of birthday party invitations and party decor suites would be perfect for summer birthdays, fitting every theme from movie nights to pool parties!

Today we are celebrating under the big top with a circus party! Drawing inspiration from a homemade stilts project (link below), we Endless Summer Project-ers have rounded up everything you need for a real fun time. I’ve collected a few examples of the circus party decor available on Minted and as you can see, I love the garlands. There are signs you can personalize, crowns to wear, stickers to squeal ‘These are so cute!” about and it’s all available is a variety of colors and patterns.

Jennifer from Classic Play started our little circus with her post on how to make stilts. Doesn’t it look amazingly fun?! The full details are over with Jen
