Week 13: Hontoon Island State Park Review and Hearts and Flowers Collection

Week 13: Hontoon Island State Park Review

Being out in nature is the best therapy for getting rid of stress and relaxing the mind and body from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  
Our trip to the Hontoon Island State Park was so enjoyable.  It is accessible by pontoon boat from the parking lot.  Our Ranger was so nice and informative so we were more than happy to give a donation for his hard work.
There is a picnic area for families as well as a playground for the kiddies.  There is a nice nature trail that goes around the island.  You reach a tower where you can climb the 100 plus steps to the top and see out over the woods below.
We enjoyed a picnic lunch inside the museum in the cool a/c as we sat and watched the history of the island recorded on video.
They also have a little store selling food and souvenirs and next to that is the park Ranger's office.  It is a nice day trip for the whole family.  
The park is located in Volusia county, Florida on the Saint Johns River basin.
 Why not plan a trip the next time you are in Florida.  If, you already live in Florida make it a place to see on your next weekend vacation.  You'll be happy you did.

I have been busy as a bee making cards for my friends and family.  I love using my Paper Pumkin card kit that comes in the mail each month from Stampin Up

I use my card stock stash and make a pocket letter style envelope and fill it up with lots of my handmade envelopes and confetti.  I love making the embellished paperclips out of the charms I have picked up over the years at craft stores and garage sales.  I attach a lobster claw to the top of the charm so they can use it on anything they like or just keep it on the paperclip and use it in a book or planner.
