Ok...how do you entertain 10 kids ranging from ages 9-16, on about $10.00???? GLOW Sticks!! I know you guys know all about them...since little ones take such delight in them....BUT I had no idea that even as they get older...kids LOVE them!! We were camping...and I had about 150 glowsticks. The kids got very creative & made up games using them...they threw them all up in the air on the beach...then raced around seeing who could collect the most! Then...they spelled "Refugio" in the sand...like a giant Light Bright...sooooooo cool!!!!
THEN...this is the best part...they taped these glow sticks all over their bodies to make these ULTRA cool "stick people!!!" Oh my gosh...we laughed sooo hard. I am sure everyone in the campground thought we were obnoxious, but it was so worth it! The kids all paraded around the campground...people clapped, hootted & hollered....FUN FUN FUN!!!!
Michaels sells tubes of 15 Glow Sticks for $1.00...you can't get much cheaper than that!!! So go buy a bunch & let your kids do a night time summer parade!!!

I have debated & debated with myself...should I release this yummy vintage sewing basket to someone else??? I do LOVE it...but still in the process of trying to simplify my life a bit:) So...off to my Etsy shop it goes!!!
Oh & one YUMMY vintage chenille drape/panel. PERFECT for a pillow project or to make into a valance. I used the other one for a valance in my girls' room. My sewing skills would make you cry though:)
