I hope this issue inspires you to grab the remainder of summer by the horns and ENJOY IT! Wether that means getting outdoors to rest and relax, or grab your paint brushes and get creative! Or maybe this issue will inspire you to grow your own lavender patch? I’ve been dreaming of growing even more, as I have so many fun ideas on how to use it. In this issue you will read about some of them. Even though the days are already getting shorter, it is still awesome to be able to squeeze every last ounce out of this sunshine while it lasts. Here I am with my daughter in the strawberry patch. The berries are late this year, I’m hoping that means summer will last just a bit longer too. Who knows, but while it’s here there is sure fun to be had! I’ve got weeds eating up my garden right now so I’ve got to run. I hope you enjoy every ounce of this publication....... I SO APPRECIATE YOU! Warmly,
!ank y" so much

When we developed these woodworking plans I had NO idea that I would want so many sets of them, and in almost all rooms of our home. They are so handy and so easy to customize. Make one or two to stack as shown here. Or create long rows of them for a toy room, bed room, entry way, or oﬃce. I have these in my sewing corner to corral supplies and fabric and love the spaciousness and how they ‘control the chaos’ with ease.

lavendula (lavender) Lavender is one of the most romantic and useful in the cottage garden. Prized for it’s delicious aroma and versatility, it is one of my favorites. But I love it most for it’s dried buds which may be used in all sorts of crafts, body care, and recipes. When planting lavender it is important to choose one which is hardy to your climate. There are many available, but only a few main types. The English (Angustifolia), the French (Intermedias), or the Spanish (Stoechas). In my zone 4-‐5 garden I have found that the Angustifolia varieties are the most hardy. Generally the Intermedias are more susceptible to cold, with the Stoechas being even more fragile. Regardless of your climate, lavender loves heat and dry conditions. Most importantly it loves well draining soil, as it does not like having soggy roots. By pruning lavender right above the woody part in the spring after new growth has started, you will encourage vigor and new growth and suppress the tendency for the plant to become overly woody. I usually do this after the ﬁrst bloom, as we have a very short growing season and gives more of a chance for a second harvest. You do not want to prune too close to fall if you live in a cold climate. If you live in a cold region and don’t get very much snow you will want to mulch your plants to protect them. (We get tons of snow up here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan so I skip this step.)

NO SEW lavender sachet
Occasionally I am in the mood to create without the hassle of hauling out tons of supplies, my sewing machine, etc... This is why I created this ‘no-‐sew’ sachet. It is such a quick and fun project. I plan to make one for each closet in my home. These would make beautiful gifts and are a perfect way to use up your extra lavender buds. Lavender was used in the Roman Days for healing and antiseptic purposes. Now it is more popular for it’s calming and mood changing eﬀects. I know it does have the ability to release tension in my neck and jaw when I smell it. Is it because I’m relaxing and releasing in the act of closing my eyes and inhaling deeply? Regardless, it makes the perfect ﬁller for sachet to stick in your pillow for a restful night’s sleep.
