What I Did: Well, I mostly followed the blog, but I only had gel to decorate with and that did not work very well as you can see and I tried a frosting writing pen that really didn’t work so I gave up in the end and we had melted snow cookies!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: possibly, but I’m not going to try…

What I Did: I wanted to make something creative to go with my Penguin Christmas tree and I had come across these glitter ornaments and I didn’t think they would be that hard and they weren’t I made 3 blue with snowflakes and 2 white glitter ornaments and i took less than hour including tying the ribbon and embellishments. So easy!!!

My Result:


Next Time I Will:† Turned out just as I had expected and hoped, one thing I would change is to use any other color glitter other than white did not cover as well as the blue.

What I Did: “I am hosting a super fun Brunch baby shower for my sister this Saturday. Of course I’ve pulled tons of ideas from Pinterest to make the shower as adorable as possible. I have a whole pinboard dedicated to the shower: http://www.pinterest.com/kcrtu/torys-baby-shower/
Go big or go home, right? Well, I chose to try the heart-shaped bacon because it’s cute, it’s a brunch food, and it’s in the shape of a heart which is perfect for a baby shower. I simply bought bacon. Cut each slice in half. Created a heart shape. Then cooked on 350 for 20 minutes. They looked good when they were raw but as you can see, the cooked product looked nothing like hearts at all.”

My Result:


Next Time I Will:† I’m not sure what I would change. Looking back, the picture on Pinterest is the raw bacon as well, and not cooked. I wonder how theirs would have turned out? Hmmm …
