Tah Dah! I finished all 5 of my Pinterest Projects I chose last week..........

Can you believe it?  Moi?  Finished something on time?  Well, the proof is in the pudding as they say so here's the proof.


#1 - Wallpapered glass bookcase doors (Decorating Board) - this was a complete failure and waste of money and time so it will be replaced with fabric at a later date. At least the way I did it was a failure.  There might be a better way but I have no more money or time to waste and I know the fabric will work as I've done that before. Live and learn!  Actually, that is exactly the purpose of these activities....to stretch my creative boundaries and build up my confidence muscle(s).

 #2 - Research Scribd and Oyster as the new Netflix for books (Books Worth Reading Board) - I did and it requires an e-reader which I don't have but some of you may be interested.  It may be cheaper than buying the books.

#3 - Make your own streak-free window cleaner (Cleaning Board)- I made this and I used it with newspaper and cleaned 2 mirrors (it's too cold out for washing windows) and it worked slick!  I'd never used newspaper before either but what a money saver!  It worked better than anything else I've ever used...honestly!  I was impressed.....still am!  It has cornstarch in it for some reason so you do have to shake it up before you use it.
  #4 - Amigurumi Gumballs (Crochet board) - I've been wanting to look into and learn amigurumi and this looked like a perfect little project to do just that.  It was easy and after a few times this could be a t.v. project.  You know I'm always on the lookout for those.

 #5 - Felt Bunny (Crafts board) - This was the most fun I've had in a while and it really boosted my confidence muscle!  This was a little bunny for sale on Pinterest that my daughter pinned so I thought I could make one for her.  She doesn't know about it (in case it didn't turn out, lol) but it will be a little Spring surprise for her.  I made it in one afternoon.  I need more of these projects where I see the fruits of my labor in one day!
 It's so similar to the one on Pinterest they could be related!
I'm running behind but tune in tomorrow for this weeks projects.  Depending on the time required and the difficulty involved there might not always be 5 projects. 
A Knit and a Cake decided to join me so please stop by her blog and see what she did from her Pinterest boards and what she's got planned for this week.  Happy Trails! 
P.S.  If you'd like the instructions for any of these projects just go to my Pinterest boards that I mentioned.  They're all out there!  Just search for Sandra Licher on Pinterest.  I'll try and get a button on here eventually.
