Today is a little better than yesterday. I'm now at the grumpy stage. Aside from the shooting pain if/when I move the wrong way I feel fine! I'm fairly well rested (thanks to my meds knocking me out twice a day!), I've caught up on e-mails, surfed Pinterest as much as I can stand and even read part of a book … I'm bored … and grumpy that I can't make my body do what I want it to! I know I should be grateful that this is a temporary thing and enjoy the "down time" while I can but I just want to get on with things! I DID manage to wander around the house for a few hours tidying what I could, cleaning the mirrors and dusting … and then I even decided to tempt fate and sit at my computer for half an hour to access my photos so I could post a few projects.
I'm now horizontal again … and drugged … and posting. NOW I feel productive again :)
So! A week or two ago I just HAD to attempt one of the "string eggs" that I had seen all over Pinterest. This is what they look like:
When I saw these I instantly knew I wanted to try it with all the Pear Pizzazz Bakers Twine I bought on the Clearance Rack … and I wanted to have chocolate eggs inside them. My PLAN was to make 30 of these for my customers this month … ya, once I made one I knew I would only ever make ONE! *lol*. Can you say MEEEEEEEESSYYYYYY *lol*
Here is how it went:
I grabbed my Mod Podge and poured some into an empty jar:
Yes, very cute but NEVER AGAIN!!! Aside from the mess, it would cost a fortune to make too many of them. A great way to use up any retired twine you have but it would take an entire roll to do a "regular" sized balloon.
Try it if you like … but you've been warned … it's messy!
Pop in again to see some cute little bunny treats I whipped up last week. Until then, have a stampy Saturday!
