To me, July 4th signals that summer is officially here to stay. In honor of next week, I pulled down my tulips and taped up a quickie flag for The Blank Wall Project. Are the lines perfectly straight? Nope. Are the stars equidistant? Nah. And you've probably already noticed that there's not enough of either. But it sure makes our place look patriotic. The masking tape alone looked a little bland, so at the last minute, I scribbled out the lyrics to the national anthem in red Sharpie and added dots to my misshapen stars in blue Sharpie. I'm hoping to do a few more 4th crafts next week between deadlines. How do you celebrate the holiday?
