Pat Sloan About This Month's Block - Space Crazy Fun!
I think there are periods of time were the whole whole world was super space-crazy. I think it comes and goes, but I secretly think we all want a little space fun in our lives.
So I find that Space pops up everywhere... how about...
As a Party Theme? There are SO many cool options. From the decorations, to the type of food. Hello Moon Rock cookies, to the sparkly ceilings. This is a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or a baby shower! Now we need to hope for a space-themed baby room.
Check them out at Pinterest, now I want to light up my ceiling!

Did you know you can find 'space theme' sneakers? Or do a little DIY on a pair of your own. This would be a fun way to spiff up a pair of kicks. Years ago I painted many a pair of white sneaker.
This link has a TON of DIY space ideas.
Space On things... like... lunch boxes!
Lunch boxes have always been a way to show what we love. I was all over the place with mine. From Strawberry Shortcake to space themes!
This is my Tom Corbett Space Cadet lunch box. I still love the graphics on it.
