Community Lensmaking Quest: Summer Fun

865263635_c7d699e9f1_zWith the dog days of summer drifting away, we want to know what you did on your summer vacation.

Did you learn a new craft?  Did you try an interesting DIY project?  Did you go somewhere fun?

Have you read any good books lately or seen an interesting new movie?  Was there a new type of cuisine or recipe you taste tested?

To complete this community lensmaking quest, create a new lens about something you’ve done, tried or learned this summer.

Make your page interesting, unique and above all informative for your readers.

When your lens is complete, share the link in the comments below.  There’s still a few weeks of summer left.  You never know, a fellow Squid might want to recreate the fun you’ve had.  Plus this is a great first place to show off your work.

PS… If you live somewhere that isn’t celebrating the end of summer right now, create a lens about something you recently did, or tried or about something that’s happening in your part of the world.

    As much as I love fall, it’s sad to see summer coming to a close. Great timing for this last-summer-fling challenge!

      Thanks Susan.

    Yikes this one will be a toughie. We have been locked in a smokey heat wave so I have spent most of the summer indoors.

      WHY would you even consider doing this quest when Squidoo is dead! Your “new” lens might not even make it to Hubpages!!

    I learned a new board game Rithmomachia for those that think math is fun ;)

    SERIOUSLY?! REALLY?! You are asking us to make a NEW lens?! Are you crazy?! Squidoo and SETH have totally abandoned us and you want us to make a new lens that might not even get transferred to Hubpages?!! Squidoo is dead and anyone who does this Quest is just crazy!! My loyalty has been wasted! I’m so angry and hurt, kiss my butt!!! I’ll NEVER be back here, EVER! Good bye Squidoo friends, I hope I see you again some day!!
