M is for Merry (Blogging From A To Z)

Welcome to Blogging From A To Z with Pin & Tack.
A letter inspires a post every day in April.

Today's letter is . . .

Merry meet & merry drink. It's a play on the old Wiccan sayings. I enjoy the charm of it and I have many friends that enjoy wine, so a combination of the two? I hope you like :)

I have been partaking in a new journey of digital arts, so here is a freebie - The first of, hopefully, many that I will share with you.

These 3.5" x 2.5" tags are for personal use only. Print them for your next get together, punch a hole and tie to the glass with twine. Ta-dah! A rustic delight for your guests . . . Click here or the photo to download.

K Is For Kites (Blogging From A To Z Challenge 2014)

Welcome to Blogging From A To Z with Pin & Tack.

Today's letter is . . .

Kites. Yes. Let's go fly a kite.

I actually haven't flown a kite since I was . . uh - yeah, a kid. Wow. It's been a long time! They are very fun and, now, I really want to play with one. Unfortunately, I don't have one. Oh, wait. Google. Yep, I can make one.

How To Make A Kite (or two or three . . .)


Did you check out the site? Oh, my, they have a lot of awesome information. You can make almost any  type of kite with all of their easy to follow instructions.

But . . you need wind. I don't have any wind today, so I'll have to try another day :( In the meantime, let's enjoy these lovely kites . . .

Do you you there are kite festivals? They are very cool and you most likely will find one near you. If you don't want to fly one, you can watch lots of people, including synchronized kite flyers!


So, are you excited to fly a bit? I hope so - Share your favorite experiences with kites. I'd enjoy hearing about them.
