Heather Prins Inspiration for the kit...
Do you remember how summer vacation seemed to last forever when you were a kid? Two months of bliss! Remember how refreshing a 15 cent Mr. freeze used to taste? And remember how vivid your imagination was? Like when you were on the swings how you could easily imagine yourself taking flight and soaring above the playground? Looking at this kit reminds me of those summer days. Of lying in the grass and picking buttercups , or lying under the tree at the park with my best friend at my side, and looking up through the branches at the sky, day dreaming of our future. I remember running around the neighborhood barefoot, shoes left "somewhere" wearing a halter top and terry cloth shorts, mismatched most likely. I remember bike parades around our crescent , everyone busy making paper flowers and streamer ribbons for days leading up to the big midsummer event! I remember doing cartwheels on the grass in our bathing suits during the warm summer rains. I remember when playing a game of marbles was cool, (especially if you owned a few "beauties"), and paper caps brought loads of fun (and a few burnt thumbs)! Games of Hopscotch, Double Dutch and Tag were more fun than watching two channels on a t.v. (with no remote) indoors.It seemed like back then the stars shone brighter, candy was sweeter and the days lasted forever. I miss those carefree summer days. I miss the sense of freedom I felt being able to ride my bike around my neighborhood from morning until night, just popping in the house for lunch or supper. What are your favorite summer memories? Did you skip stones and pretend you were Huck Finn off on some wild adventure? Or did you climb trees and pretend you were Maid Marion waiting for RobinHood? Did you have a Secret Garden that you escaped to even if it was just in your imagination?Dig out some of those old photos if you have them and relive those moments. Be 8 years old again, just for today. Laugh until your sides ache, eat candy and not worry about the calories, walk barefoot and feel how cool the grass is beneath your feet. Just for a moment, breathe in all that it meant to be young and carefree.
