Pinterest Fail #1



This joke has nothing to do with my embarrassing Pinterest Fail, but it KILLS me…..And I figured I would add it since it is Literacy Week at my son’s school.  He tells me he competed in a joke competition yesterday.  He didn’t win.  His joke….Why did the banana climb up the tree?  To get his peel back!  …………..Followed by “Cuz you know mom, bananas have peels?  And he lost it!  He threw it up in the tree!  So he had to go get it!  HAHAHAHAHAHA”.

Anyways, back to the embarrassment that is my Pinterest project.  Let me first begin by saying that as much as I try to be, I really really suck at art.  Or anything related to art.  But I’m trying!  I decided to do a DIY Quote on canvas project for my daughter’s room.  Turns out I didn’t read the instructions very well.  I also realized I just don’t get modge podge.  To save myself the shame, I won’t even post what this project was supposed to look like.  Only that I ended up with something like this…


Lesson learned….


Fancy Fridge Project


Fridge Magnet Project

One of my first Pinterest projects was this creative fridge idea from  Before this, my fridge-front was a collection of school drawings from my son, thank you cards, and random phone numbers, all held together by mismatched magnets.  This completed project definitely gave my fridge a sense of ‘aah’, know what I mean?  It’s amazing how organizing one little thing can change your outlook on your entire house.

I ended up only using black frames….I tend to keep things simple.  But I love the way her pops of yellow look!  I definitely recommend testing out various ways to glue the magnets on the frames, depending how heavy your frames are.  Overall, this project cost me about $8.  All materials were purchased at the local Dollar Store.
