Standard

Check it out on this wonderful single mother of the cutest little girl: http://bumpyroadtobubba.com/2011/12/29/playing-catch-up-aka-awards-season-part-2/

“Like a lot of people, I’ve discovered Pinterest and have lost hours to it. The final blogger I’d like to introduce you to today is a wife and mumma of two who has set herself a year long challenge: to find something that interests her on Pinterest and attempt her own take on it – craft, baking, fashion, or whatever else she finds. She’s only just started the journey and I’m really enjoying it. I’m sure you will too! https://ipinterest.wordpress.com/ ”

  • Project: day 7: Cooking it up/Crock pot lasagna with Herbed Garlic Bread
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2
  • Would I do it again? Yes! It was so yummy. The herbed garlic bread was probably the best home-made garlic bread out there, and the lasagna was a hit with the whole fam. I also added the italian sausage, but next time I will also add the garlic and onions :). For the bread I also moved it toward the broiler for a few additional minutes, post recommended cooking time.
  • Items used: see recipe links above by clicking on the pictures.

until ipinterest tomorrow!

Ok, so I decided to challenge my lack of creativity and overall craftiness with a year-long adventure in pinteresting!

Starting December 1st, 2011- November 30th, 2012, I will choose anything on pinterest which peaks my interest.

I will either be posting via blogs, videos, Facebook, or twitter, and will most likely be following this challenge:

Monday: outdoors we will go/house decor

Tuesday: fashionable kiddo

Wednesday: cooking it up

Thursday: organizational chaos/house decor

Friday: fashionable momma

Saturday: crafty creation

Sunday: baking away

Whether I have 1 follower or many, I am doing this to learn a few things! As of now,  I am not so good at cooking or crafting, can piece together an outfit at times, and usually know what I like. I hope that in doing this I will be stretched in my creativity, have fun while doing it, and show my two girls, that it is never to late to learn or try something new!

God Bless my husband and family while I do this, I’m sure there will be many times when I (or they) will want to throw in the towel!
