We are a Michigan mother and daughter whose battle cry is "I can make that!" and then we don't.
Here we hope to collect all the little things in life that make us smile. Hopefully, one day we will craft those bracelets, make those ornaments, and finish those projects. But for now, here we dream.

Pinterest Challenge: The Results
On Thursday I posted a challenge to myself, complete 5 Pinterest projects with stuff I already own. Here are the results!
1. The Basket Weave Card. I decided to combine 2 projects, the basket weave from scraps and a 3-D paper butterfly project I wanted to do a while back. This is what I came up with:
I am unsure if I completely like it. Mike wasn't sure about the brown background. I may modify, I can't decide.
2.The finished Fairy Garden. I transplanted the overgrown Impatiens (which means I probably killed them), and added the lovely fairy furniture I purchased from Fox Specialty Services (Mr. Fox himself included a hand written thank you note, so cute!).
3. Break in 3 pairs of flats with chunky socks and a hair dryer. Well, I don't have a photo for this, my results were somewhat mixed. It's not an easy process. The shoes were uncomfortable to begin with, so stuffing them onto my feet along with a pair of ridiculously ugly polar fleece socks, then blow drying them till my feet sweat was a painful process. They are still tight. I will attempt a second stretch, but I am not sold on this process.
4. Button Lampshade. I did not get to this project, we went to the Zoo instead. But I did make Corn Bread Corn Dogs from Happy Good Time Blog, except they had a fabulous looking home-made corn bread recipe and I used Jiffy. And I made big muffins, not minis.
5. Martha's Muffin Pan Potatoes Gratin. Mine did not look nearly as pretty as Martha's, but hey, they tasted good! I did not pair them with steak, chicken, or sauteed fish, we had them with Sloppy Joe's. We weren't very fancy pants tonight.
And voila! I did it, sort of. Five more things I can cross off Pinterest as having completed!
