Hello Sunshine and 25 Shmacks!

Lately, it has been cloudy and rainy here! Trust me when I say that the sunshine we had this past weekend was a welcome gift. I love the warmth of the sun and the brightness of a summer day. I think oranges and yellows--"sunshiney" colors--are cheerful and welcoming.

And as soon as I walked into The Wood Connection and saw their various sunshine crafts, I knew what I wanted to do for my guest post for them. I knew a "sunshine project" would be perfect for me and my home. You can view my tutorial here.

The Wood Connection has generously donated a $25 gift certificate to one lucky Mama Leisha reader! If you would like to enter the drawing, simply leave a comment below. Tell me what you enjoy about summer! I'd love to know. *A BONUS entry for following Mama Leisha on Instagram. You can follow the fun here.*

The giveaway will end at 11:00pm MST on June 7. Good luck, party people, and HAPPY SUMMER! Happy Crafting!  


  1. i love it, they are exactly what i need for some spring/summer decorations in my home! i love the wood connection, i think if i had the money i'd spend thousands of dollars there! =)
    looking forward to the splash pad with the kids, blowing bubbles in the yard, and drawing with chalk!
