Whale of a Time


We have a whale of a time collecting rocks at Nauset Light Beach over the weekend.

What sorts of fun things are you up to this summer?  Please share!

I also used part of this nature inspired image to create a brand new blog button!  Scroll all the way down my sidebar to check it out.  If you like it grab it and THANKS!

    • Thanks Lisa! I just resized it and updated the code. I think it will work better for your sidebar. Now I have to set up something similar on mine and get yours!

  1. Thanks for the lovely button, I am wearing it proudly!
    Did you use an app to draw on the rocks? Photoshop? Or did you draw on old fashioned paper and take a photo? Questions questions!
    As for the summer, we swim in the Y pool a ton and sketch and I am sure we will be sewing stuffies at some point!

    • My kids have been swimming a lot too. They love the pool but I think it is destroying my daughter’s hair!
      Thanks for wearing my button! I just updated the code. I made it smaller. Seems like 150 X 150 is more of a standard size.

      Do you have a Cats Eat Dogs button?

      Also I made my whales in PowerPoint. I imported the photo then used the drawing tools to make the simple line art. There is probably an app but I haven’t found a simple one that is vector based. I stink at drawing freehand on the iPad.

    • Thanks! I would like to do more of these. It was so simple and fun and they seem to have so much character.
