Tags: dehydrator, dried fruit, homemade
I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend to see if I need one. I made raisins, banana chips and apple rings. While they are tasty, there are just some things that I’d rather buy. I have been enamored with making some of my own staple items, like yogurt and ricotta cheese.
I’m glad that I did it. I’m glad that I can. BUT- I keep thinking that for a couple of dollars more, I can buy some! The older I get, the more precious my time feels. I want to focus more on cooking the actual meals than the ingredients. Maybe someday I’ll get back to making everything from scratch but for now I’ll savor time with my darling, my babes and my horse!

We have been here since May and I have finally unpacked my craft room
I think I’ve procrastinated so long because I was afraid to cram my things into such a small space. It fit! I did unload before the move but I’m still shocked! I hope I have as much fun in this space as I did in the last!

I have seen the technique of printing on wax paper via Pinterest so many times. I finally decided to use it and it worked!
My dilemma was that I couldn’t print on a large piece of paper. I wasn’t going to let that stop me! When I want to do a project, I NEED to do it NOW!
I carefully placed the wax paper, ink side down, onto my project and rubbed the image onto the paper. I love how it turned out. The text has just the right amount if transparency for just the “vintagey” less than perfect look that I love!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I’ve also seen tshirt strip wicks. I might try that next time.

We have taken the plunge and uprooted to Maine! I started a new blog to document our rural adventures,
3 Hen Coop. I hope to see you there!

My girls are obsessed with fairy catching. I know they are hoping some little pixies will find this to be a comfortable home.
