busy, busy

We've been staying pretty busy around our house. Dan finished harvesting last weekend which was a huge blessing. We have had a great stretch of weather which has made working outside very enjoyable and easy. Last weekend we also made applesauce. I got apples from a local orchard and we filled all the jars I have and also froze a few containers. It was a lot of work, but so worth it!And of course I have also been crafting. Here's the latest addition to the house. Again I got the idea from here, one of my favorite blogs, Creative Crate. I need to print off some more black and white photos to fill up the frame, but these were all that I could find at the time.

Bathroom Art

I've always wanted to put something on the wall behind the toilet, but what? Bathroom decorations are hard! But the first time I saw this on Creative Crate, one of my favorite craft blogs - I also love her playlist, I knew it was just what I had been looking for. This blog is full of great ideas and I've gotten in the habit of just copying the images that I like and saving them in my craft idea file on my computer so that I don't forget or have to try and find the same post again when I have time to be crafty.

So here it is my new bathroom art. It was suppose to be a "free" project by using supplies I already had, but I ended up buying a new frame because I didn't love the one that I already had. So it cost me about a half hour on my Cricut and $12 on a frame.

I couldn't have done this without my Cricut - love it!!
Rebecca had fun finding letters she knows and she learned a few more too.
