  • My favorite part of summer is relaxing from teaching and experimenting with jewelry techniques that I read throughout the school year!
    Then I share my love of my hobby with my students in school!

  • kathyS

    My favorite is air conditioning. Yay!

  • Erin P

    My favorite part of summer is hanging out at the pool and watching my son play baseball. However, while at the pool, I peruse beading books like crazy!

  • Susan LP

    My favorite parts of summer are tomato-basil sandwiches(with produce straight from the garden),ice cold watermelon, and a run away from home to the beach day!

  • Tricia

    I love heading out to the cottage, completely unplugged from technology, with a few craft projects along for the ride to work on whenever I feel like it!

  • Elizabeth Eichstaedt

    My favorite part of summer is my Birthday in June. The next best thing was the warm summer nights. Since moving to Florida it is warm all the time, so it is like an endless summer!

  • Carol Logie

    Would love to work with these

  • My favorite part of summer is when it’s over and it’s cold and dark and lots more comfortable. :) Your giveaway thing is really cute but I must confess to hating everything about the nautical theme since my mom thought it was cute to dress me in sailor outfit dresses when I was little… they were really popular amongst moms (but not kids) in the 60s. A few years ago however I did get to be rescued by some really cute Coast Guard guys while kayaking (this was all my husband’s fault and *I* was perfectly safe the entire time!). So maybe nautical is okay now. :)

  • Margaret

    I love the longer days and the produce from my garden.

  • Carol Logie

    The stArt of Summer is my favorite part

  • My favorite part of summer is the light-weight clothing and the beautiful colors of summer.

  • Connie


  • Barbara Holmes

    These remind me of the love of the ocean and the life under the sea. My ganddaughter would love me to make her an exciting necklace with all the sea elements and the life below. She is my little Beachbaby

  • Amy

    Well, first of all, I’m home-schooled so we don’t take off of school during the summer because its normally too hot to do anything outside. But the beginging of my summer went terrible. I had some problems with my parents. My dad just got really mad and I wont go into details but I’ll just say, it ruined my life. But what I enjoy about summer is, going to the beach with my two GREAT sisters, and having cookouts with all of the fun family’s we know. So even though I’ve started out having a terrible summer, its turning out to be not so bad. I don’t care if I win or not, I just thought I would share that you. =)

  • Kristina

    My favorite parts of summer are my birthday in June and gardening. Ooh! And the fireflies!

  • Lee Hethcox

    that’s easy..going to the beach with a daughter and beading when we aren’t out by the water!

  • Alicia

    Air conditioning is my favorite part of summer. I’m from the north and even after 24 years I still can’t stand the heat.

  • Kim

    For me the best part of summer is the chance to recharge. I consider myself a creative person; painting, jewelry making, ceramics, writing….but through the year the demands of being a librarian can overcome that creative part of me. After one week off, three to go, I feel charged and ready to revive my creative side! A great frame of mind is so important to open up those channels of imagination :)

  • Beth Bauer

    It is a toss-up for me between getting to reenter the rivers, fishing the annual salmon runs or playing in the dirt planting & tenting to my flowers & vegetables. Summer in Alaska is so short, we take our summer celebrating very seriously!

  • Angi Mullis

    My favorite part of summer is the fresh veggies from our garden! Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!!!!!!!

  • Jane W

    Ohhh the Summer, there is not enough room here to explain what I like about the summer time. Long warm days, cool mornings to have coffee on the deck and read my jewelry magazines. Camping and swimming whenever possible. Back yard BBQ’S with family and friends. And my all time favorite it there is no “Snow”.

  • LizN

    Love the warm weather and blue cloudless skies.

  • amy

    I love the weather, swimming, the longer days, a break from teaching, vacationing, trying new bead techniques, outdoor movies and growing herbs, tomatoes and basil.

  • Pam Beck

    I’m afraid I’m like Sue Evans, I like summer best when it’s gone. Don’t like the heat and humidity, and here in the Carolina foothills, it can be horrible. I do like a trip to the beach, and the fresh fruits and veggies though, so I guess some things are ok about summer. I would love to get a hold of the beads and supplies, I love making new jewelry! Blessed be, hugs!!!

  • Stacy in KS

    My Favorite part of Summer is taking a break from Teaching, Getting to stay up late and sleep in a little, Catching up on all the projects that I get behind on during the school year and of course making jewelry on those long, hot days of Summer in my Central Air. :)

  • MelodyJ

    I love the causal feel of summer. There is time to relax, read books and craft.


  • Laura

    My favorite part of summer is not having snow! And, along with the not having snow comes having wildflowers :-)

  • Varda

    My favorite part is the end of Summer when it’s not so hot so you can sit on the porch and relax without needing aircondition all the time !

  • My favorite part of Summer is the sunshine, playing in my gardens and watching my flowers bloom, butterflies and taking relaxing walks with my hubby when the sun is going down. :)

  • Catherine Smith

    The best thing about summer is being able to take longer walks with my dog Sammy! And also spend more time making jewelry and picking such beautiful new color of beads and materials

  • jackie koudry

    My favorite part of summer is the end of it. I don’t do well in high heat and humidity.

  • My fav. part of summer, is listening to the waves hit the beach outside a cabin in Oscoda Michigan, and hanging out with friends and neighbors at summer BBQs. I also have great memories of my childhood heading to the lake (Little Wolf Lake) with my family, having a picnic linch- moms fried chicken, swimming, swimming with my brothers and dad. Mom never went in the water and if we were lucky we would hit DQ on the way home. My mom,dad and 1 brother has died so they are wonderful memories!!!

  • jennifer

    My favorite parts of summer are the HEAT (!!), the beautiful sunshine, the aliveness of everything and the HUMMINGBIRDS!! They are here and looking for food. I love to watch them. They are magical creatures!

  • Charlene Kenney

    New England beaches! Nighttime campfires! S’mores! Sand all through the house….not so much!

  • Jane Morris Coons

    Wow, so many things! I love the laziness and the possibilities…to do things or just to sit and watch the water. I love the garden, and how it changes daily. And the beach! Clamcakes, chowder, Del’s Lemonade (A RI thing)

  • Tracey Levandoski

    My favorite part of summer is waking to daylight and driving home from work in daylight. I love the long daylight hours!

  • My favorite part of summer is a trip to the pool. I love the water, and when I was a little girl, I wanted to be a mermaid. I also love picnics and just the sunshine, even here in Arizona, where the sunshine is hot, hot, hot!

  • Klista

    I love the fresh fruit…cherries, strawberries, peaches and watermelon that are so great this time of the year. Love the holidays that give us more time to spend with the family and I am also loving making jewelry to match the bright fun colors that are hot this season!!! :-0

  • What a fun mix. Please enter my name.

  • Jacquelyn Guerrero

    What I love about summer? The water whether it is the pool, beach or a spring you can jump and swim in(which is what I can enjoy for the first time this summer). The laughter of children playing, barbecues, the time with family. The afternoon storms that pop up when we get one. Picnics, fireworks. Everything.

  • What’s not to love? In my part of the world summer is short and sweet, the local produce is to die for, and everyone just seems to be in a happier mood, especially the tourists! Love these beady goodies, particularly the variations on the “classic” marine blue!

  • Michelle W

    My favorite part of summer is going to the beach!!!!

  • kristin

    Oh, its the summer suppers, beefsteak tomatoes and fresh corn.

  • Pam Bertrand

    Love sitting by the ocean…serenity on earth

  • Mary

    My favorite part of summer is NO SNOW, warm/hot days, and good roads to drive on—I have to commute to work! I love working in my garden and eating the produce.

  • Lorraine

    I love the summer because of the warm weather.I live in Canada and we get very cold weather and a lot of snow…I would love to win this prize.

  • my favorite part of summer is swimming. Love it, love it, love it!
