April-June in Review

I realized the other day how quickly this summer is passing by (and how is baby E already 9 months old?!).  Although we’ve had fun and already made lots of great memories, there’s so many things we haven’t done yet with the kids and places to go before school starts back up.  Why does summer always seem so short and winter always seem so incredibly looooong?

With July here, it’s time to recap April-June and you’re welcome to visit any posts you may have missed or revisit any projects that inspired you.  If you’ve tried anything similar after seeing my projects, I’d love to know!  Click any of the links below the images to be taken to the full post with lots more information.  Let’s start with furniture makeovers…
