What I Did: My husband, Elijah, saw some drinking glasses made out of beer bottles that he really like. I mentioned to him that I saw instructions on how to make them on Pinterest. His eyes lit up and he asked me to immediately show him the instructions so I did and he went out and purchased the supplies right away. It took multiple attempts to even get the glass to crack and unfortunately, when it did, it was not straight.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I think a glass etcher is needs in order to be successful.

What I Did: I hate to admit it, but this is our second attempt at this recipe! We thought we maybe overcooked it the first time, so we tried again… no luck. We followed the directions, but just ended up with this – cheese globs in tomato juice.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I read some of the comments on the recipe blog post, and some people suggested draining the tomatoes of any extra juice. We may go for a third attempt…

What I Did: My best friend for 10 years found out she was pregnant last May, naturally I started planning for the baby shower. THEN came my bright idea for doing newborn pictures. So like any gal my age I went to Pinterest! (Pinterest has totally been a life changer for me)! So I began my search and found many adorable ideas then this came across my page ” Kissing booth baby”, she had her February 3rd so a Valentines day theme was totally appropriate.
I found all my materials;
– Wooden crate
– White spray paint
– Red spray paint
– Cute valentines day props
– Wooden post
– Scrap book paper
– Sequins

I made the letters with a cricut  (So many fun things you can do with that thing!) I modge-podged them onto a hard poster board. Then spray painted the crate and wooden post for the back. Then came attaching them all together. I had bit of a mix up of trying to screw them in to the crate (which I ended up hot gluing ) and I got my thumb permanently imprinted like a screw because my bright idea of grabbing the smoking screw was, well not so bright. I hot glued them all together, set up a black blanket for the backdrop added a few finishing touches and had one of the most adorable photo shoots ever!

I changed the look of pretty much everything from the original pictures, but kept the inspiration.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I loved everything about it, wouldn’t change a thing :)
