Wear Sunscreen!

Over a decade ago, when my son Jeff graduated from high school, one of the popular recordings of the day was Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) by Baz Luhrmann.  I thought of that last night as I was loading the car in preparation for a craft fair.  I have a fanny pack full of small bills and change.  AND  I have my sun hat, bottled water, and sunscreen.  (I stocked up for the grandsons' 11-day visit earlier this month.)  

I’m off to vend at the outdoor Aldersgate United Methodist Church Craft Fair and Flea Market in Lincoln, NE:

The weather forecast earlier this week called for temps in the mid 90s, but the current forecast is for a relatively balmy  88 degrees with high humidity and a chance of thundershowers.  Okay—maybe not balmy.  Hot and humid.  But not unbearably hot.   

BTW, I’ve listed a couple of reversible cotton sun hats like the one pictured above in my Etsy shop. (They’ll be Deactivated along with several other items from my shop during the craft fair on June 16, 2012.)

They are made from beautiful 100% cotton fabrics (so unbelievably soft to the touch ) designed by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics:   I used a Tie Dye Diva pattern (with permission) for the floppy hat:   The 3-inch topstitched brim will provide some much-needed shade from the sun, and the cool, breathable cotton fabric will be light and comfortable.

Have a wonderful weekend!
