What I Did: Our dishwasher has a slight clog going on, so Pinterest to the rescue!!! . Step 1 was ok, but couldn’t get to the filter mentioned… Move to the “run with CLR” and was greeted with a foamy mess. And a still non-functioning dishwasher:

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  Uhh… Not have a broken dishwasher.

What I Did: Wanted to do fabric cover balloons for my sister’s shower. These balloons were filled 5 minutes earlier and did not float even with the lightest tulle. They must have used some kind of “Special” balloons?

My Result:

What I Did: My friend wanted the fishbowl drink for her bday. She asked how I would do it because she saw the fail version. I’m full of win.

Premixed the beverage. Put the nerds in, added ice and fish candy then poured the drink. I was perfect.

What I Did: Followed instructions and the cookies are too heavy! They crumble as soon as you pick them up. Not much flavor.

My Result:

pinterest fail nutella cookies

Next Time I Will:  They seem to need some oil to help combine the ingredients. I added 1 1/2 tbl spoons of coconut oil to the second batch. They turned out better and it also helped out with the flavor.
