Well, that's me!! Well, those pictures aren't mine, but I SOOO understand the feeling. Allow me to demonstrate.
I've been eyeing this clipboard. I LOVE it!!
My attempt....it isn't too bad. I need to get back to Hobby Lobby to buy me a different ribbon piece for it. This is how it looks for now.
Hubby says, "I could've done it better." (meaning him....he's probably right...so he can do my next one!)
Next up, those cute little binder clips...you know what I'm talking about. Looky!
So cute aren't they? Well, since I had duct tape left over, I of course had to try to make me some zebra ones---LOVE me some Zebra!! **Sidenote---here's a pic of darling daughter's room.**
LOVE me some zebra!! SOOO---here's my attempt at the binder clips.
I was feeling all crafty, but guess what??????
I can find them at the store-(yep, click the pic!)--and save myself the headache. It was fun to try to do something else with the duct tape though, and my daughter was loving watching her momma try to do something with it. BOY does duct tape EVER Stick together!!
Hold on, THERE'S MORE!!!
Ohh yeah, and I had extra duct tape, and thought....HMMMM!!....Well, we will attempt that picture another day, and HEAVEN forbid I show you a picture of my toolbox. Well, actually, it still looks the same. Its' very clear, and very blue---and JUST perfect the way it is!! Here's a pic!
Yep, it's PERFECT! :)
So, since I was feeling so crafty the past few days. I thought, MAYBE, I can make a craftivity. You know the kind I'm talking about. The kind like, hmm, I dunno, maybe this:
This is from the FABULOUS Miss Kindergarten. Isn't it stinkin' cute?
OR maybe this?
This cute craft is from A Cupcake for the Teacher.
I love BOTH of those blogs, and the lovely things they create!! They gave me some inspiration to try my own!! Take a look!
We had an exciting Friday night in this house. Our area was having HORRIBLE wind/rain storms, so this is how we spent our evening. Do you know what character it is? My kiddos and I attempted them. They had the template for the head, ears and dress. They added their own limbs, boots, etc. This is my son's. He wanted to make one because his sister was....but he wants to rush through everything. It's still cute, because it was HIS work!!
Next, we have mine. This was the sample I showed my kids. Actually, we all worked on it together, doing it step by step.
Finally, we have my overachiever daughter. This turned out so stinkin' cute!! I LOVE it!!
My last picture, well, it's not too bad. Usually everything I attempt turns out looking like a bear, but I THINK, I actually made a rabbit!! Check it out! What do you all think?
So there you have it. My hits or misses of the past week. I found this and thought it to be perfect.
For the most part, things didn't turn out THAT horrible. I have no crafting ability in me AT ALL! I guess on the bright side, I *think* I make yummy cupcakes! :)
HERE. I suggest adding 1/4 cup (I think that's what I put in it) cocoa powder. When I make these again I will also fill it with the frosting THEN ice it!! YUM!!!
