What I Did: I loved this picture and wanted to try with my 2 month old. I first tried her with just a pamper and then put the romper on because I thought she hated it because she was cold. My husband said she hated it because she was placed inside of food. I will modify pumpkin and try again.


My Result: 



Next Time I Will: Try a bigger pumpkin.

What I Did: I wanted to make this for my husband for his first Father’s Day. My baby is 3 months old. I couldn’t get the consistency of the sand right. Plus, she kept wiggling her toes. You can kind of see the footprint. But her foot was getting raw because I had to do it so many times because she kept curling her toes. I decided to see how it works and knew that this one would be a loss, but didn’t anticipate THIS. Once I started pouring in the plaster of Paris it made a big well which is what you see. There’s a footprint in the top left corner. Wow. Just wow.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  No clue how to make this better, but I’m going to try a couple more times. This particular one will be shattered and redone. It is not salvageable. At. All.

 What I Did: They make it look easy on Pinterest. I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile back and pinned it for another day. Well this was one of the many pins that I forgot about until I saw that one of my friends had attempted it. She posted her picture on Facebook and her daughter’s picture turned out great. So I decided to give it a shot with my 11 month old daughter Ella. I stripped her down and threw on a cute pink diaper. I pulled out my lipstick and went to town! Not so Pintastic! Don’t get me wrong- Ella is adorable but my attempt was a little lame. She looks like she has the measles!

First off, I am not a lipstick person so this pink was the darkest lipstick that I owned. I think a red would have been better. Secondly, Ella was too squirmy. She kept rubbing the lipstick off all over the couch. Lastly, she would not look at the camera. The flash kept making her blink. I took over a dozen shots and this one was the closest I could get to the model on Pinterest.
