Pintrest attempts

I do much of my research for sets and plays on Pintrest.  It's a convenient place to store inspiration and ideas.  Sometimes I pin crafts and recipes.  But what's the point of finding something new if you never try the something new.  Most of the time I am the Queen of Pintrest Fail.  Then it occurred to me... could trying really be failing.  After all, I wouldn't be surprised if the original attempts of those crafts and recipes didn't look as nifty without the help of talented photographers and a little "touch up" before posting.  :)

This week I tried 2 Pintrest inspiration recipes.

The September Report

Catch up - August

Or no blog at all.  What can I say?  It's summer.  we are busy.  I'm lazy.  There is so much to do.  So little time.  OK. The real reason is I just am not making the time to take a picture nor to write anything down. So let's see what we did in August.
