Easy Crock Pot Jambalaya!

We have been working on a campground in Maine since April and are currently smack in the middle of the busiest time of the year here.  What does that mean for us?  Well it means long hours.  This week, I pulled out the crock pot and using a great coupon for Swanson's chicken broth, I created a super easy recipe for Crockpot Jambalaya!  The crock pot is apparently my new go-to kitchen utensil.

Not that the dogs mind that...

So here is a quick recipe that took just minutes to put together.  Yummy Crock Pot Jambalaya!

When wandering through the thrift store lately, I ran across an old cutting board and inspiration struck.  Instead of using it for the boring purpose of cutting vegetables, I came up with a way to make my cutting board have a whole new life!  How about pretty A is for Apple String Art?

Most cutting boards that you find at the thrift store have been used well past their prime.  I switched to the plastic ones years ago because I could wash them in the dishwasher and be sure they were very clean.  Wooden ones- well love the look, but would rather cut my veggies on something that is sanitized.  So with that said, I came up with a way to revamp an old cutting board with string art.

Oh hi!  This is Suzy's number one favoritist dog, Ralph.  Mom said I could guest post again today since she is busy working at the campgrounds.  We live in a house on wheels that she calls a RV.  We have been going to lots of fun places!

Living in a RV is fun!  My sister, Faith and I never know what exciting thing we might find when Mom opens that door...

Lots of fun things to see and do!  There are squirrels, bunnies and other fun things to chase.  We just have to get dad to run a little faster.  He can be kind of slow.

We are smack in the middle of summer and if I remember correctly, this is about the time that the kids start hanging out in the kitchen and whining about being boooorrrrreeed.  Correct?  We didn't have video games when my kids were younger, and being the crafty person I am, I loved to find craft ideas for them that not only entertained them, but the end result was something that they would be proud of.

In need of a fun crafty fix to a boring afternoon?  Here are 9 of my favorite summertime craft tutorials!
