I recently mentioned that I haven't made many of the things I've pinned, but today I wanted to share (in no particular order) the things I have tried that I found off of Pinterest:
I was inspired by this to make Olympic ring cupcakes, and I also printed off some of the Olympic surveys for an opening ceremony party we went to.
My first attempt at homemade liquid soap was too watery, so I tried again and also made a beautiful dispenser to put it in. (Thanks, Monica, for the zinc lid and tips!)
I'm part of a preschool co-op with Natalie, and I am in charge of teaching about the letter "H" this morning. We'll be doing this fun craft.
Back in June, I had the kids answer these questions to make a hilarious Father's Day gift for Eric. I hope to do this every year and collect the surveys to see how their responses change.
Last winter when we were certain of the baby's name, I made this personalized onesie following these instructions.
ideas for repurposing baby wipes containers. I stashed extra batteries in mine thanks to the inspiration.
I tried some carrot chips with our abundant garden supply. Yummy!
I made these bell pepper muffins, which we DID NOT think were yummy. =( Same with this homemade peanut butter. Great idea but not fans.
I baked these garbanzo bean brownies for Bean Night, omitting the chocolate chips. They were quite tasty.
One of the first recipes I pinned was this fabulous Valentine snack mix.
I ordered this birth announcement onesie sticker after Naomi was born--very cute but a little hard to read.
I read and loved this book. And I'm definitely anticipating Season Three of this!
I have 131 pins currently on my boards, and I've tried the16 things I've mentioned here. (Although I just realized that number is technically higher: my Read/Listen/Watch board is a little different because I've listened to some of that music--I just don't want to forget links to it so I can keep listening.) I'm glad I put this post together, actually, because I don't think I've ever gone back through all my boards and I was reminded of some great ideas that I still hope to try.
Have you tried any of the things I've mentioned here?
And though I did not find the tip on Pinterest, I'm thrilled to report that yesterday I decided to check on the dozen tomatoes I'd wrapped in newspaper a couple weeks ago. Five of them had turned red! I am so thrilled that those tomatoes weren't wasted and that I can still enjoy them even in these 40-degree temps.
