Pinterest … Nailed It!

Standard

I am not crafty. I don’t make things from supplies. Craft stores scare me.

I cannot really cook. I mean, I can follow a recipe, but only if I have heard of all of the ingredients and cooking techniques. I don’t own any fancy food processing equipment, choppers, mixers, etc.

You know those funny images of what recipes or crafts are supposed to look like, and then the user fails, “Nailed It!”

That’s me.

So, when I decided to throw George a Halloween Birthday Party… I hit up Pinterest, Katie, and my mom for ideas.

Somehow, I think it turned out ok! Here’s what I made!

I set a table.  A whole table!

I usually don’t have the time or patience, but it was fun to clean up, dress up my place, decorate, and spoil the G!

Feel free to share your horror stories and successes!
