Fall Family Photos

We got the cutest family pictures taken at Wheeler Farm a few weeks ago. Jessica Oberg did them and she's GREAT! She has amazing prices and she did such a good job. We had a lot of fun just wandering around Wheeler Farm and getting a ton of fun and casual pictures. I have a link to her blog on the right under "My Favorite Sites" and I highly recommend her to anyone! She is really laid back and very talented.

Some crafty things I want to do

Well we're still in the process of trying to buy a home! I knew that it could take awhile, but it's still driving us nuts with the waiting! We found a house in Clinton that we loved, and while we were waiting to hear back about that house, we found another house in West Point that we loved even more! So we had 2 offers at the same time. The home in Clinton didn't work out (the bank wanted more than the actual list price...lame!), but we're okay with it because we want the West Point home more anyway! So we're hoping to get some good news later this week sometime, but ya never know!

So I don't know if it's the weather, or the fact that we're hopefully getting a house soon or what, but I've been wanting to do some simple (stress the word simple), crafty things! I'm not a big crafty person, and although I like to cook and bake, I don't sew. Not at all. And I don't imagine that I ever will. But I do like other crafts and hopefully when I have a home, I'll be able to do some of these things and have somewhere to put them! And since I'm not in school, I have LOADS of time on my hands to do them! Yay! Twine covered vase. So easy and so cool.

Planted bread. Coolest idea ever for gifts. Maybe for Christmas??Mod Podge sheet music to display over a piano. I need my piano first though....
I love this idea. It takes no sewing and you just cover foam board with fabric and wonder under and then iron on and decorate how you want! I don't have any kids yet but I thought I could do something in an office or guest bedroom with a different word like "Dream" or "Inspire" or something like that. These are so easy but so delicious especially for the holidays! Chocolate and caramel covered pretzel sticks!
This last idea is also really cute and easy and just involves taking a digital scrapbook page (or any picture or anything) and mod podging it to a painted canvas to display somewhere!
