Groovin’ with the Go-to Gals: A Happy Camper

Heather Color Groovin with the Go to Gals: A Happy Camper

Heather Campbell

It’s been trickling in steadily, I’ve been seeing elements of the great outdoors and woodland creatures everywhere, from home décor to fashion apparel. Woodgrains and rustic wood paneling, natural elements of burlap and canvas, foxes and hedgehogs have all led us into the woods. The great outdoors and the camping trend have hit the scene in full force!

I have a certain fondness for camping. I spent my childhood summers tent camping at Priest Lake, Idaho, picking huckleberries, blazing trails in the wilderness, enjoying hot summery weather by day and the most spectacular lightning storms by night. These days, living in Seattle where we an average of 58 days of sunshine a year, I’m not much of a camper. The thought of trying to get my children to fall asleep in a tent makes me cringe, so I would probably consider myself more of a “glamper.”

What I love most about the camping trend is it encompasses just about every aspect of the great outdoors! Tent camping, woodland critters, glamping and even teepees are embraced in a big way! It also coordinates with so many of the other trends. Arrows, triangles, and woodgrains compliment these outdoor-inspired icons so well!

I did a little Pinterest search and found a ton of inspiration!

I love every single aspect of this. I love the trees, the teepees, and even the wooden frame.

Adventure does await here! The woodgrain and tent evoke a desire to get out and explore!

I’m honestly not sure what I love most about the Into the Woods collection from Lawn Fawn. The arrows, the adorable fox, or maybe it’s the deer all add up to a lot of woodland fun! Is anyone else ready for a hike?

The Happy Camper Stew collection from Jillibean Soup is complete with flamingos.

    Ahh! I have a gazillion hiking, camping, and canoeing pictures to scrapbook, plus two camping/canoeing/hiking trips in September, and a friend just got a camp scene tattoo so all of these products should go on my wishlist to make vacation scrapbooks and a card for my camp counselor friend! :)

    I grew up camping a lot and have always enjoyed nature but now, roughing it would have to include either a really nice RV or a hotel room – lol! So fun to see this camping/outdoorsy trend. Thank you for the chance to win these wonderful stamps!
