Pinterest and Your Slimy Ways.

Dear Pinterest,
I will never live up to your pinteresty standards.

-The Pressure of Pinterest and Being Crafty-

I would love my house to look like a ‘For the Home’ Pinterest board but I am no Martha Stewart. So I try to take on small projects. Pinterest and its frilly ways pulls you in with “fun”, “easy” diy projects that leave normal people crying on the floor covered in glitter.

I tried wreath making.
It looks okay.. I guess, except the bottom is falling out.

Cake making.
That time I made a cake and all of my frosting rolled off. I thought it would be fun to do a chocolate marshmallow fluff icing… I was wrong. ALWAYS go buttercream. This is where my dream died to work for Duff Goldman.

I go on Pinterest splurges. Either I am on it everyday for weeks or I have not been on in months. I start pinning and get so many ideas for things I would LOVE to do in my home. And then reality sets in. I’m just not that crafty. For you ladies and gents that are, I commend you.

I will be sticking to Pinterest for drink ideas.

Thankfully we don’t all need to be crafty, good at cooking, or designing. Just be interesting and maybe try a few Pinterest projects at least once. Who knows you could be great!

Cocktail time.. after this post I am going to need it!
