Someone I know turned five years old last week. Emily and I made her cake together. We took a family vacation for most of the week and did so many fun things together: canoeing, Chuck E. Cheese, tubing, even Valley Fair.
As part of Emily's birthday present, we made her this tent! My husband and Natalie made the frame and then that night I made the cover. They used Cakies' tutorial for a DIY A-frame tent with a slight modification. I requested a brace across the base of the tent so it wouldn't collapse with all the bumping and fooling around. It's perfect. I even had the perfect Ikea fabric already in my stash.
We had fun, the vacation went fast, but we had a great time. I was able to unplug from the computer and instagram and blogging. It felt really good to not know where my phone was. Now onward!
Also, I had a little interview over at Janome.com last week!
