Hi everyone. It is with a saddened heart that Dean and I post this week after the Orlando, FL massacre that happened now over a week ago. We wanted to take this time to acknowledge those families and friends left to mourn their loved ones that were lost. Their lives mattered. Everyone’s life matters. Your life matters. Amidst all the political rhetoric that has surfaced recently, we thought it would be most appropiate to feature the wonderful diy bloggers who submitted their patriotic entries. Maybe the strawberry shortcake wasn’t technically patriotic but it says summer all over it and I can’t wait to make this.

First up we have this patriotic American Flag made out of tissue. This isn’t the only thing Ilkas Blog has made out of tissue. She sounds like a professional.

Next feature is from Celebrate and Decorate. Tablescaping is not what I would call a strength of mine but I think I could do this or something similar for the upcoming Independence Day.

And last but not least, the strawberry shortcake recipe I was talking about. Don’t sweat the recipe has the recipe from scratch and if it tastes as good as it looks the last 10 pounds I am trying to lose is going to have to wait a week.
