I have been off the crafty bloggin’ radar lately, but I have been far from off the craftin’ radar! I have been logging quite a few hours in the ol’ craft studio working on various projects from my little one’s birthday party, a baby shower I made center pieces and a banner for and today’s fun project for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.
I am competing in a triathlon relay course at the end of September with two of the hub’s co-workers. My responsiblity in the race is to swim 1 mile in the ocean. Thankfully, I have done this triathlon in full about 11 years ago, so I am familiar with the swim course. That does not take away a bit of the pre-race jitters and worries of things that could go awry while in the water… Jaws and leg cramps! 🙂
I made this count down sign to remind me of my pending race and also to “Keep Calm and Swim On”. I have been seeing these type of sayings all over Facebook and Pinterest and thought this would be a fun sport related project that meets cute trendy! If you are wondering what the black square is, it is chalkboard vinyl I got through Expressionsvinyl.com. LOVE THEM! Super reasonable in price and fun to work with.
Now head over to FCCB and get inspired to create something “fanntabulously” sporty!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “keeping calm and crafting and swimming” pie with me!
