What I Did: I decided to give these a shot–the directions seemed simple enough! I glanced at them and went to work. I rolled the cheese in a bit of melted butter instead of milk, and popped them in the oven. This was the result. Later, I went back and read the REST of the post, where she gives the extra instructions, like freezing the cheese first. Oh well.

My Result:


Next Time I Will:  Freeze the cheese? Buy mozzarella sticks from a box and stop the nonsense? Probably that one.

User Error: Glitter Time-out Jars

What I Did: As soon as I saw the time-out bottles, I knew this was something we could all benefit from. I had shown my Husband the picture, and hoped to get to the craft store sometime soon. A few days later while at work I get a text ” I made a fail timeout bottle and wasted some of your glitter…” I thought how bad could it be?! We were only missing a few ingredients…

My Result:


Next Time I Will:  Advise Husband that palm kernel oil is not a replacement for craft glue, and black pepper is not “black glitter”. There is no saving this.

What I Did: I saw this idea on Pinterest and it seemed SO easy. Just mix together cornstarch and shaving cream and you can make this amazing looking snow man. Well, ours didn’t turn out quite as perfect. We played around a lot with the ingredients to figure out the right proportions. When we thought we got it just right, we tried to make it again….only that time it didn’t turn out at all. You can see quite a cute picture of our sad little snowman.

What I Did: I was checking pinterest and noticed a cool pin where you add food coloring to a balloon then fill the balloon with water and let it freeze then when it freezes, you are supposed to cut the balloon and it looks really cool. I guess I wasn’t patient enough because only the outside of the balloon was frozen so when I cut the balloon, red water poured out of the inside and now our front yard looks like a murder scene. On the bright side, we probably will not have to worry about anyone burglarizing our house.
