Hello Summer Giveaway

The temperatures are rising, and the days are getting longer. School is almost out. Yay! Summer with all of its savory sweetness is right around the corner. It's so close, I can almost taste it! If thoughts of berry picking outings, water fun, and outdoor adventures don't already have you craving summer, these summery posts and products will. Get into the spirit of summer with sizzling fabrics, shorts peppered with popsicles, nautical prints, butter-colored cabochon rings, watermelon science activities, and more! Enjoy taking a peek at this fantastic collection of shops and blogs, and don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

For a little extra fun, I asked each of these shop owners and bloggers to share their favorite thing about summer. I hope you enjoy reading their answers and getting to know a little more about the individual behind each blog/shop. How would you answer that question? What's your favorite thing about summer? Feel free to share your answers with us in the comment section below.

Raspberry Creek Fabrics truly is my favorite online source for designer fabrics! I especially love the coordinating bundles and new knits that have been popping up in this shop.

"My favorite thing about summer...the endless sunlight and warm evenings! Nothing like snuggling in a backyard hammock with a warmish breezy and the fading light." --Diana of Raspberry Creek Fabrics

Aren't these prints the cutest?! In this shop, you'll find wall art, cards, and other printed items all customized to your preferences! They have some fantastic gift options for Father's Day too!

Hobbies from the Heart offers stickers, seals, jewelry, and more! It's a treasure trove full of fun goodies!

"My favorite thing about summer would be experiencing warm weather (after 9 months of winter here in Wisconsin) and attending the farmer’s market and craft fairs." --Marianne of Hobbies from the Heart

Natural recipes and botany lessons for little ones are just two samples of the amazing resources you'll find on my dear friend Tanya's blog. Be sure to stop by and take a look around.

"Going on vacation. Popsicles and the pool are second favorite things." --Tanya of The Natural Homeschool blog

My mom and I both currently have products in our homes from this shop. The handcrafted signs, prints, and decor items are all so gorgeous!

"Summer is my favorite season (with Fall as a very close second). Every other Friday night during the summer, we meet up with a group of friends and their children and have a picnic on the beach while watching the sunset. The kids build sandcastles, the adults throw the football or frisbee and we all just have a great time fellowshipping. Another activity that I love is our family bicycle rides. Whenever my husband has a week day off, we take our bicycles (kids in tow!) and stroll along our county trail, making sure to stop by the local famous Ice Cream Shoppe on the way home." --Brittany of Ellison Made

The garlands and handcrafted goodies that this shop offers are fantastic, but it's the Package of Pretties--monthly subscription boxes--that I love the most! Be sure to visit Earth Cookie Creations on Instagram for more details.

"My favorite part of summer is the bright colors!" --Jessica of Earth Cookie Creations

Natural Beach Living's slogan reads, "Homeschooling with sandy toes and a smile." Here you'll find fun, educational ideas like this amazing post on Watermelon Sensory Science!

"My favorite thing about summer is family time at the beach." --Kimberly of Natural Beach Living

Black and white never looked so good! This shop is filled with monochromatic creations that are perfect for babies.

"My favorite things about summer are the fresh sweet fruit, warm sand, the sunsets, watermelon, sun dresses, road trips, lemonade, lightening bugs, longer nights, and long walks on the beach." --Nichole of Wildly Loved

Don't miss out on visiting Root & Blossom for yourself. It's a toss-up on which is cuter--the blog or the shop!

Whimsical garlands, jewelry, and handmade creations can all be found in my own little shop. Be sure to keep checking back. I have some fun, new items coming soon!

"There are so many things I love about the summer season! I love picking fruits and berries with my kids, impromptu picnics, beach vacations, catching and collecting fireflies in mason jars, visiting the local farmer's markets, and longer days to squeeze in more fun!" --Jennifer Dawn of Bluebird Cottage Designs and this blog
