School’s Out! :: Treasury Thursday

The idea of “School’s Out” is so well timed and is a great idea for this weeks’s treasury challenge.

I love this time of year, have I mentioned that already?

When school is out, we can hopefully enjoy longer days, a more carefree routine, and perhaps be reminded of  easier, simpler and innocent summer days of childhood.

I savor the longer days, warm summer nights and as a mom of a school kid, I am not sure who’s happier when school is out, me or the kiddo!

There is  less homework, more peace in the house; less rushing, more family time; less cooking, more grilling.

This week’s idea hails all the way from Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland – thanks to Louise from CraftyLou!  You can find CraftyLou in a few places…she’s got a shop on Folksy and Etsy , some fun boards on PinterestFacebook, and I suggest grabbing a cup of tea and pay a visit to her blog.

Since my own Etsy shop is focused on Paper, I feel that I have stumbled across a kindred spirit when I read her personal message on her Etsy shop…

Paper……..it surrounds us everyday….newspapers, office printouts, junk mail, magazines….and I love making things with it.  Ever since I was wee I’ve drawn on, cut, folded, glued, selotaped and stapled paper to make things….some more sucessful than others!  My choice of university degree and subsequent career as an Architect have developed and inspired this love of modeling paper into forms.

She makes the most detailed, beautiful hand-cut paper works of art – I can’t imagine the patience this must require!  One of her pieces is in this treasury…I think you will spot it easily…it reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time, Grease, and the summer romance between Sandy and Danny!

When school is out, it leaves an empty canvas; the days are no longer  filled with the three R’s, but instead space is created for …

Sprinklers.

Popsicles.

Swimming pools.

Flip flops.

Staying up late.

Summer nights.

and more…

Take a little break and enjoy the treasury…what easy breezy ‘school’s out’ memories do you have?  And be sure to stop by and say hello to CraftyLou!
