Hello! I have a fun holiday to share with you today. National Hammock Day! Here’s a description via Holiday Insights. “Summer is in full swing. It’s time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer (and all of the other summer days, too), there is no better place to slow down and relax, than on a hammock.Hammock Day is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog Days of summer (July 3 though August 11th.Hammock Day exists to enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. Getting out of your hammock to get a snack, or your favorite summer beverage is okay. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.”
I decided to make a necklace using the lovely focal image from Rise and Shine, and Shrinky Dinks.
I colored her with colored pencils. This is actually version #2. The first one had the full background and banner. I knew the glossy side would look better, but then the banner would be backwards, so I was hoping that the side I colored on would look ok. I wasn’t a fan, so I had to redo her without the background.
Here I am wearing it, to give you a size reference. I wish she was a wee bit bigger, but I still like the way the necklace turned out. Now, please hop over to the Bombshell Blog to see what some of the other ladies made for this very relaxing holiday! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
