Showcase: DIY Summer Inspirations

The following is by editor Kara Fleck.

We”re taking a few days for a Summer staycation at the Fleck household over the Independence Day holiday, and I”ve promised my family I”ll be limiting my computer time.

But, before I close the laptop and pour myself some ice tea, I wanted to leave you with a few ideas and inspirations from my Summer board on Pinterest.

DIY Clothing and Summer Decor

DIY Summer Fun

DIY Summer Treats

Megan Tietz, of Sorta Crunchy, wrote up a great guide for Pinterest newbies here, if you”d like to get started with this service.

You can find me at Pinterest as Simple Kids and you can also find contributors Amy Anderson, , and Catherine Way there, as well as Tsh of Simple Mom, Aimee of Simple Bites, and Nicole of Simple Organic.

Have a fantastic weekend, friends! Play with your kids, find some time to relax, and maybe shut off your own laptop and pour a glass of iced tea for yourself, okay? Best wishes!
