Sneaky Peeky at the BEACH! + Kit Giveaway

WOW June was short. I guess that one day off the end makes a bigger difference than you think, I'd guess!

Last year I remember it was an unseasonably cool 4th, but there's no danger of that this year. I bought this fun new Japanese weeding tool that I've been dying to try out, but even right at dawn, it's already hot enough to make me lose my will. I really need to though - I have a very pernicious grass from the neighbor's yard invading my flowerbed. The roots are just awful so I love the angle and the super sharp blade. I'll let you know how it goes. 

This month's Hero Studio Card Kit has this fun mashup feel of beachy and sort of retro imagery. The little details in the kit are incredible - such as the little footprints!

Today is the sneak peek day and you are going to see some really fun peeks, but I can't really tell you too much more about what's in there!

You can win the kit by leaving comments this weekend though! You can see the list of all the peeks here and be entered to win.

I'll give you the deets on this card on Monday! I have some fun tricks for sand and whatnot.

What are your plans for the 4th? I just realized I need to get some food! LOL. I've been doing the summer eating plan - reheating in the microwave only - my freezer full of earlier cooked food is my friend right now. I'm happy winter Lydia made some lasagne. 😂
