The August Eco Calendar page features warm, bright, cheery colors perfect for summer. I love the pop of color it adds to my desk. It's exciting to plant the May and June seed paper page and see all the pretty flowers grow. I'm really pleased with how the other pages of the calendar have been growing, there's a whole collection of wildflower pots covering my back porch. I don't know about you guys but, when I flipped to the August page of the Eco Calendar this morning, I just couldn't believe how fast the summer is flying by. Like many of you, we've been enjoying the great weather and activities that come with summer and have payed little attention to the passing days. With the last long weekend of summer approaching, we need to soak up the sun and have some fun with friends and family. We hope everyone has had a chance to find some time for lounging around the pool, water park or cabin. I love how in summer being "lazy" doesn't actually make you feel guilty, it's a natural response that can totally be justified by the hot weather. We have at least one more full month of enjoying this beautiful weather and I want to encourage you to take full advantage of your favorite activities that only summer can offer. If you're looking for some fun activities to do with a friend or even with the kids to keep them occupied we have some really great Crafts and DIY Projects as well as Free Printables to keep you busy and entertained. A great one we just posted was Canning Labels for your Homemade Goodies. They are adorable labels and tags to attach to homemade treats such as jams, jelly and dips to dress them up for giving as gifts. I have a friend who's using them as wedding favors. Such a fun idea! Before we know it, Fall will sneak up on us and we will long for the hot summer days of July and August. Fortunately it's the first of the month and we still have plenty of time to enjoy!
