Summer Mix

A mix of photo outtakes from the season: it's full-on Summertime!
I have the day off, I'm going to sew and try to stay cool...
Since I've been making things again I'm getting back into music. Before MP3's
I used to make mixed tapes for people all the time.
I made a mixed CD for the Summer.
To the first 4 people who leave a comment under this post: you will receive a copy of the mixed CD. Just tell me what you are listening to this summer!

UPDATE: The Winners are: Mae, Kelley, Seedstitching, Erica, and what the heck...I'll let Angelina in on this as well...since she posted and is always providing me with new inspiration like this:

** Enjoying Viva Vena Cava (via Angelina of Beklina)

And I have also been eye-ing:
Lena Corwin's updated shop with this, this, and this (everything really)!

*** To those who won just send me an email with your address (under my profile) and I'll put the CD's in the post by the end of next week :) Thanks for your summer music suggestions.

Hi Jennifer,

I have been loving the latest Yeah Yeah Yeahs cd "It's Blitz!" And I discovered Melody Gardot and Sepiatone.

Hi Jen,

I've been listening to Mocky Sadkamodie, and I've been singing camp songs :)

I went to my first Pony Show today. -I know this has nothing to do with summer music, but the Pony's love to get wild and dance to music. It was really fun and unexpected.
