Greetings from Idaho! We drove 1400 miles in 3 days, and we’ve got a fun filled couple of days ahead of us in Idaho with family! While the men of my family are off getting fishing licenses I thought I’d check in with my goals for June:

This month’s plans took a back seat to decorating, and then a big left-hand turn when I got a bee in my bonnet to place a big wholesale order for the 100% post-consumer recycled paper Eco-Jotters. I ended up making 30 awesome journal covers in time to pack in my trunk for the trunk show I’m doing tomorrow here. So that one little line on my to do list turned into a much bigger project, distracting me from other things on the list, but I’m really happy with what I made, so it’s all good! I also got into a nice little groove with the boys, where each morning from 10-noon, they played in the pool while I was dyeing on the patio. I going to keep this up when we return, as it’s perfect weather for dyeing, and they need to be out playing before it gets too hot. I’m going to try to dye smarter and dye a LOT of scarves in the summer months (and more fabric too) so I have less dyeing to do during the cooler months. Duh! it’s the “make hay while the sun shines” thing!

This month’s list will be really short, as the bulk of my time will be spent in Yellowstone, hopefully getting recharged and reinvigorated! I already had some awesome inspiration from some lichen growing around the campsite we spent a night in in McCall, Idaho:

The boys are having great fun tromping around in the wild:blog Payette Lake18 Logan was really taken by this rock he found:
