Did I mention that May and June are my absolute busiest months at work? And that I’ve known this for the past five years? Ya–I’m beginning to think I really am insane for these challenges I’m whipping it up. Lisa did remind me yesterday that “Insanity” is in my blog title. I’ve always wondered why I included that…
So even though I feel that I’ve only barely chipped the mountain that is my Pinterest collection, when I look back at the things I’ve done over the course of a month I realize that I kicked this challenge’s ass. Take that May!
All of the photos below are my own.
I’ve been doing fairly well with this particular pin–though not so great at taking the pictures on the actual assigned days. But still.
I think that I’m caught up to about the 23rd of May. Bahahaha! But I did find this little wicker box at Hobby Lobby that I plan to wrap a ribbon around to pretty up.
Love these. Scott hammered in the eyelet for me and I did a bit of trimming with the original paint cards and glued two together so there is pattern on each side. The flower is a stamp using StazOn ink.
If you click on the original link then you’ll see that my flowers are a bit softer than the original, which works well for this cake. Definitely need to use a stiffer frosting next time rather than cream cheese frosting, but I think this would look great on cupcakes. Very easy to do!
I’ll admit that I was surprised when this little cake didn’t rise but it was SO good. Very dense but very moist. I brought the leftovers up to work and it was devoured with many compliments. Will definitely make again.
A coworker gave me this link when I was asking for springform recipes. It was very tasty but I think I like a crust with a dish like this.
This was half pin and half experiment. The original pin has a crust which I really wanted to do but didn’t have any pie dough in my freezer/fridge and didn’t want to take the time to make it right then. Note to self, make up some pie dough and put in freezer.
Thanks to JoAnn for introducing me to this recipe! It was very tasty and has endless possibilities for filling. Will definitely make again.
Yes. I bought this for Mother’s Day and my 6 year anniversary. :) I did use Scott’s credit card if that counts.
Need I say more? …
I mean really. Kicked this challenge in the butt!
I’d like to attempt a wrap-up post with everyone’s progress, so please make sure you link up your own progress! There are already so many great links for you to check out. I bet it will help you get Pinterested.
There has been some interest in continuing on with this challenge. At this juncture I cannot host monthly but I do plan on a Pin It Do It Redux this fall. Tell me–September or October??
