Monday Made It

I'm so excited to be linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It.
My "made its" aren't teaching related (it's too early in the summer for that!).  I've been using my Silhouette Cameo a lot this summer to make gifts for others.
I love buckets!  This past week I decorated two buckets to give as birthday/thank you gifts.  I mean who doesn't love a cute bucket around the house!?  Here are the before and after pictures...

My second "made it" is for our up coming week at the lake.  This vacation is my favorite week of the year for several reasons.  I love spending time with our besties (there are five families that go) and floating in the lake all day!  I also love our menu.  We eat lots of delicious food and have a different adult drink of the day each day of the week.  Since we go the week of the 4th, our theme is always USA related.  This year I made fun cups for all the ladies for our DOTD (drink of the day).  I found these cute plastic red solo cups at Menards of all places!  Here's the finished product...
Hope you're enjoying your summer!!
