6 Days of Pinterest #4-6

6 Days of Pinterest #4-6

 You know. Things don’t always work out. Like this post idea. So, instead of dragging it out further with a post I didn’t really plan all out correctly, I’m just going to cap this one off here, and move on. I have just a TON of stuff to share with you, and I am getting behind!  : ) But, then again, you didn’t know that, did you?

Pinterest Project # 4:
Homemade Goldfish Crackers (or gold bears, in my case):
 To me, they didn’t really taste like real goldfish crackers, but they were very yummy! My one year old loved them too! Will definitely make them again!
Pinterest Project #5: Tissue Paper Pompoms
I made these easy pompoms for 2 January parties I hosted HERE…. 
 and HERE:
Pinterest Projects #6 to whatever.
 I had perfected these bathtub crayons in my post HERE.
 And I loved these wax paper hearts from THIS idea.
And THIS idea is on my Pin Board too. I did do it, and LOVE my new soap dispensers! So fancy!
So, you know I love Pinterest right now! Thank you Amy and Sidney for getting me hooked! It’s a wealth of knowledge and never-ending crafts for me! I love it and I hope you do too!

CHIP CLIPS.

 To this:
So simple. Just love it! And…it was free! Pinterest idea HERE on my board. (Just ask for the hangers next time you buy pants at the store… I found it easiest to just bend the ends back, making the clips just snap off).
Let there be no excuses for stale chips again!  : )

6 DAYS OF PINTEREST #1

RUG RE-DESIGN.
I pinned THIS idea on my Pinterest Board, which led me to THIS blog.
I followed all most of her directions. I started with the TRAMPA rug from Ikea for $9.00.
It has a very high and thick pile. Perfect for my front door. Shouldn’t blow away like my last one, or two.
I don’t really have a proper word processor on my laptop, so I was unable to do it the “easy way” and print out my font big enough to use as a stencil. So, guess what? I had to draw it larger myself.

I usually don’t struggle with lettering, but this time getting it right was a chore. And since I couldn’t seem to get it perfect, I gave up and just used it anyways.

Thank you, Amy, who has everything I need (and vice versa) just across the street….for the black spray paint to finish my project.
 In the basement I laid down my stencil, used painters tape to hold my stencil down on the rug, and covered the rest in newspaper.

 And I sprayed it. twice.

 And, well…good enough.

 I love it.

And I even think I’ve gotten a few people to chuckle as they come to my front door! Now that is what I was going for! Thank you, Pinterest! Are you following me on there yet????? Sign up in my sidebar…and wait two weeks, or give me your email below, or on facebook, and I’ll “invite” you! Happy Pinning!
