Confessions of a Craft Disaster...

I get so excited when I browse Pinterest …and I get all these big crafting, decorating, baking ideas. 
I feel like I too can be Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker all rolled into one amazing crafting cooking lady.  Like a super fabulous version of myself, sometimes I get carried away. 
Which leads me to….

I found this super cute Valentine’s Day heart craft on Pinterest. 
You can find it here...

I got all my materials ready…

I got Aiden ready…pants rolled up….socks off…ready to paint…

I got this…
This looks like My Bloody Valentine…not super cute artwork!

This is what I failed to think through, I am the mommy of a very ACTIVE, ENTHUSIASTIC 2 year old boy!  What was I thinking?

Lesson Learned…Active & Enthusiastic don’t really mesh well with RED foot painting, even with the best intentions. 
So this is my shout out to all the mommy’s and teachers who have failed valiantly while trying to be fabulous...I applaud you for trying. You are in fact fabulous, because you tried...


  1. This is so cute! I just saw and was like, aw yes I will do this with my little Elie (almost 2) for his grandma for valentines day, but perhaps it will turn out quite messy! Either way it looks like so much fun and we'll try this out tomorrow and blog the results! Thanks for such a fun post it brought a smile! :)

  2. Hi Jesi...thanks for stopping by! Ok so you have to send me the pictures when you do this so I can post them! xoxo
