Summer So Far

* If you haven't already, please vote on the poll in my sidebar! *

Remember that Summer List I posted a few weeks back? Well, I've completed a few things on that list since then. My sister and I washed the car, which was quite enjoyable! My family went to the beach, which was lots of fun! We've gone on a good amount of walks, even though it's been super hot outside! And of course, I've been taking plenty of photos from here, there and everywhere! Also, aside from the list, we've gone blueberry and raspberry picking, I helped out as a counselor at my VBS, and we saw Brave and Ice Age 4 in theaters!   

So how is your summer going? 
What fun things have kept you busy?

a hobby of mine

If you haven't already, please vote on the poll in my sidebar!

I love to collect things. I really do. It might even be a slight obsession. I collect a whole bunch of stuff, from the springs inside of pens to more common things like coins. Some of my collections are small because I've just started them, while some are larger. Some started out for crafting reasons, some I just picked up from who knows where. But that's what I do. And maybe I do it because I like to organize things, or maybe because deep down inside they mean something to me. Whatever the reason, I love to collect things. I guess you could call it a hobby of mine. (:

 Since the caps of water bottle aren't recyclable, I decided to start collecting them instead of throwing them out. I'm still waiting to come across an awesome craft idea, or to think up one, so I can use these. 

 These are Crazerasers. They are colourful small erasers that are in the shapes of food, animals, things in the home etc. I love mini stuff, so when I found out these existed I started a collection of course!

 I love the Ferrero Rocher chocolate. I get them every year for Christmas. And when I'm done eating them, I keep the rest: the little cup, the golden wrapper, and even the sticker!

 I keep the fortunes from fortune cookies when we go to Chinese restaurants because a lot of them are really great messages that are very inspirational. So I can re-read them if I'm ever in a slump.

 Mini keys and locks. I told you I liked mini things! 
These remind me of the lock bridge I visited in Paris!

 Mini pencils! I started this collection a long time ago. It got quite hard to write with these things near the end before I brought them home.

 I began this collection after learning how to make Starburst strips and earrings. It's cool because there are so many different flavours!

 And here is a picture of my all the pop tabs I've collected.
 I plan to make a bracelet or belt out of these.

What do you like to collect?

'cause baby you're a firework


These are the photos I took with my awesome new camera (that I love even more than before if that's possible) from the Canada Day celebration at a park near our house. I love how they turned out. And the moon was out and shining too, so with my 21x optical zoom I just had to take a shot of it. Canada is now 145 years old. Congrats Canada! Which one is your favourite?
