Hi, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve been here to chitchat about trends. Let’s say you and I take a break from the usual Magazine Monday business and go back to our Monday with Megan trend-talk roots for a bit.
Today: Summer Trends
In magazine land, we’ve been hard at work on the Summer 2015 issue of SCT, which naturally has me seeing summer. There are so many fun looks and styles coming our way. From beachside business to poolside panache, you’ll definitely find ways to capture that summer feeling in your crafting. Here are just a few of my favorite motifs making themselves known as temps rise.
What’s not to love about a pink animal? Flamingos are flying onto the trend scene in a big way. Here are just a few of these feathered friends:

Yes, it’s going to be pretty sweet summer, by the looks of things. I hope you get to spend some time soaking up the sun, enjoying a sweet treat and a tropical drink or two. Whether your summer travels take you to the cactuses of the southwest of the flamingos of Florida, may you enjoy your journey!
