    Pinterest FaIL-Sort of 

    AT Easter time I mentioned in a post that my kids and I did eggshell geodes. I posted a picture from Martha Stewart with how they are supposed to turn out.

    -I now know I am not Martha. Have you ever seen the blog called something like that? I may have seen more than 1 of them. It is too bad such names are already taken. Anyway, they still are pretty, but not at all like the picture from her site. The colors are cheery and my mind is spinning with upcycle ideas to use them for, but on this depressive Monday here are the results prior to doing something else with them.

     

     

     

    They are pretty shells as you can see. This is all of them as a collection.

    The orange one has the most crystals , but not at all like the photo from Martha's blog.

    I think there is a link on my former post in April on this under Holidays, if you want to see what we tried. Maybe you would have better luck

      This reminds me of a time I saw Martha on a show, and someone in the audience was like “I’ve tried what you are demonstrating and it really doesn’t look like yours” Martha’s response to that comment could not have been more condescending it was one of those moments where you really felt for the woman in the audience who probably will never buy a Martha branded thing again.

        That is crazy. I know people like that. They take it as criticism against them when the person was just stating a fact. That is ridiculous. Makes me never want to support her either again. I got the idea from pinterest. I pin and never know where it comes from until I go to do it sometime. I do not do much from her like I used to since I do not have time. Just if it is a pin on Pinterest that leads me there. Thanks for the comment.

      This reminded me of an episode with melted wax crayons, not at all easy to do 🙂

        We tried the melted was crayons on pumpkins a few years back and all it did was clock up the hot glue gun. Wishing you the best as you do your music stuff.

    Pinstrosity and Fire Pots. 

    Have you ever heard of Pinstrosity? Well if you have not it is a great site for the rest of us that do not, a lot of the time, get our Pinterest DIY ideas to work or look at all like the photos or the promises made. It helps the self esteem to know you are not alone.

    Any way I made a little fire pot for the 4th and I cannot complain too much since unlike many flops on the site, I improvised with my materials. Like many on the site, it was not a total flop though, just not as nice as expected or not as perfect.

    The fire pot did light for me. It was not hard to light. It did not shoot up and cause any emergency room visits. It also did not stay lit long enough to do a smore like they are supposedly set up to do. I really did not make it for that anyway. It was just a simple fun thing to do for the day.

    I am sorry, my photos did not turn out to show it. This is what happens when a kid takes them, it happens too quickly to get the photo and you have a Cheapo camera that does not do well after dark.
