Summer Bucket List


My favorite part of summer is getting to spend more time with the grandkids. We all love hanging out, but we really love when we go to special places around town that you normally wouldn't go to. I've lived in Independence my whole life and had never been to the old (and they say haunted) jail on the square until last year when Jordyn, Jace, and I went.




Jace suggested this year we make a list of some of our favorite places to go so that we're sure not to forget any. 

That photo was taken with the glass out of the frame. You'll see why in a little bit.




I jumped on the Silhouette to design and print our list off. I used the font Tilez. I sure thought I had everything on the page, but you can see when I printed, I cut off the very top and bottom. I spent one whole afternoon working on putting everything together, so I wasn't about to go back and change it all. Greg gets cranky when he's hungry and it was time to start thinking about dinner!




This is why I don't like taking photos with glass. 
Hello, me in the reflection with the camera.




With the glass, we can use a dry erase marker and start crossing everything off as we go.
I can't wait!

Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad


If you're ever looking for an absolutely delicious fruit Salad that everyone is sure to love, then you've got to try this Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad!




I found the recipe on Pinterest here. It recommended that you make the salad the day you're serving it, but I made mine the day before, but left out the bananas until they day of. It doesn't take any time to slice them up and add them at the last minute.

This one is a definite keeper!

Owl Tote Bag


For Easter this year I made the little girls Owl Tote Bags to use for their baskets.



You all know how much I love to make tote bags, this has to be my all time favorite.



I made it using the pattern from Sarah Jane Sews. She made a darling bag, but for the tote, I changed it up a little. What I'm really saying is that because I was making 2, I went the simple way.



I didn't put the sides on these, just the front and back sewn together with canvas handles.



I appliqued the owl pieces and added the button eyes before I sewed it all up.



They're nice and big for all their treasures they need to tote around.







Have a great weekend!
