Pinterest Success (or not)…

I’m one of those Pinterest fans. It’s my new go-to site for baking inspiration, mainly, although I like to browse craft projects and organizing too. Sometimes I even get so inspired that I {gasp} actually do something inspired by a pin.

So what pins have made me get up off my behind and do something?

I tried the water and vinegar in the microwave. Supposedly it will steam up and all you have to do is wipe your microwave clean. Notice I said supposedly. It didn’t work for me. I think I may have used a dish with sides that were too high – the steam couldn’t escape and loosen the spills all over. It did work just above my dish, so I can see where this MIGHT be successful.

Felt Flowers

I love it when I have all the supplies for a craft project on hand. I made these flowers a few hours before a photo shoot for my cousin. They took about ten minutes each (and probably would have taken less time if I hadn’t had to conserve my last hot glue stick). The headband is just a crocheted chain stitch.


Marshmallow Catapults

Not made by me, actually. I took this one to Cub Scouts for the Webelos Engineer activity badge. The boys loved it. Their moms might not have been as thrilled to be taking home a marshmallow catapult.

Those are three of my non-food Pinterest projects. I’ll be back with a rundown of my food projects, cause there’s a lot more of them.
