The hardest part of winter is waiting for it to end! Here in Michigan, snow in April is not uncommon, even during the Easter holiday. I have so many friends living and vacationing in the warm, sunny tropical climates this time of year while I'm sipping mugs of hot cocoa instead of tropical smoothies. To break up the monotony of these blustery days, I simply make my own tropical holiday by turning up the heat, tuning into my favorite Trop Rock playlist, serve myself a tropical fruit tray and relax with a fun summer project. Even though I can't run around the house in my flip flops, sunglasses and swimwear (just in case the UPS man knocks at the door!), I can always grab all my tropical paint supplies and create my own beach scene or summer themed projects in lieu of watching the blustery skies and melting snow. Once you put yourself in a tropical state of mind, Annie Thing is truly Possible!
I hope you'll check out my new Trop Rock themed collections from Redbubble and Amazon, find a fun summer themed project pattern to get you inspired, find so great summer fabric prints and try a few Free projects as well. I think we'll all agree that Tropical really does rock any time of year!
