Fun - Fab - Fourth of July Finds!

After perusing the web I've come to realize that there is not much more that I can add to the *plethora* of ideas already out there. Talent Cowabunga!! But if you missed my star shaped chalk project, you can find the recipe here.

So, I've decided to collect all the fabulosity and share it in one spot to save ya a few stops along the way.

If you are in search of some FAB 4th finds, look no more. Ok, so you could probably find more. There is a *plethora* of amazing talented folks out there. Below you will find a sampling of the *plethora* of my fav americana finds. If you love the patriotic holiday too, enjoy!
