Weekend Inspiration: Kites

Welcome summer! Thanks for the gift of this beautiful, breezy morning. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the mooooorrrnin'. (10 points if you get that reference.) I'm looking forward to all the great things about summer. Beaches, road trips, picnics, and so much more. When I worked with kids in an afterschool/summer camp program a few years ago, the first day of summer we decided to make kites as a class. The kids were very careful to decorate them so they could be recognized from high in the air. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard as when I watching those determined little ones get their lovingly homemade kites in the air. It went a little something like this:

So now I associate kites with the beginning of summer. And hilarious cuteness. Without further ado here is Weekend Inspiration: Kites!

You could make a normal kite. Or your could make this OWL kite from Red Ted Art.

I found this simple, happy cake on Sabores da Gula. The blog is in Portuguese but fortunately great pictures and work is universal. 

Wouldn't you love to get this handmade card from Lime Doodle Design in the mail? 

Find out how to make these cookies, and a big impression, on the Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.

The detail of the floating kits tails on these cupcake toppers makes them. From the Etsy shop DD Cupcake Accessories.

A kite door hanger on Polka Dot Pavilion; welcome summer and guests simultaneously.

Kite gift tags from the Etsy shop Raemj. The perfect thing for a summer party. 

I would wear these simple kite studs from Studio Cosette on Etsy all summer.

Would it be weird to have this bunting from Juneberry Lane up all year? 'Cause I kind of want to.

Isn't it wonderful that the first day of summer just happens to be a Friday!? I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.

Sheila :)
