Okay, so I was totally excited to get back to crafty and cooking after last week’s Bring on Spring series! But seriously-do you ever have one of those series of fails that ust won’t quit?? That’s been me the past few days. So in the interest of full disclosure there are no Pinterest-viral pictures in this post-just a string of well-intentioned ideas that turned out not quite blog-pretty!
First up in Watergate Salad…have you ever had this dessert? My Grandma used to make it for me all the time when I was a little kid and I love, love, love it! It’s vaguely green so I thought it was a good thing to share just before St Patrick’s Day, right? Wrong. Seriously-Watergate Salad is the most impossible dish to photograph in any sort of attractive manner. I promise it tastes good though!!!
To make it just mix one package of pistachio pudding mix with a large can of crushed pineapple (undrained). Then add a small container of Cool Whip, two cups of mini marshmallows and some crushed walnuts if you like. Chill it and enjoy-kids love this stuff!!
Next up was a little paper crafting…I found a super cute vintage Easter graphic from The Graphics Fairy and decided to make a little pop-up Easter card with it. It’s not horrible, but just pretty ~blah~ overall. Another blog fail.
Okay, I saved the most ridiculous for last….I thought these little guys were going to be soooooo cute! I took some plastic Easter eggs and glued on some googly eyes, a little cardstock beak, and make some legs out of floral wire. Yeah. Um, not so cute. While my four year old was absolutely enamoured with them my husband couldn’t stop “cracking” jokes (pun intended.)
So now you know that I have actually been crafting and cooking and trying so hard to get you guys some good stuff to look at! Hopefully I’ve busted out of my funk and will have some great ideas to share this week. Tomorrow I’m going to share some cute ideas and tips for getting picky eaters to eat and then I have my own spring decor updates and some cute Easter crafts later in the week-thanks for stopping by!
