My less than successful attempts at Cake Pops!

You know how cute all those cake pop balls are! Well, I just had to decide to make them to take to two family functions, ok, here is where my "not-so-craftiness" rears it's ugly head....I know you will laugh, but try not to laugh too hard!  They do at least taste good.  Kelci (my 9 yr old) and I were going to attempt, no, we were GOING to make Reindeer and Santa Hats!  Ok, here goes...

ok - so these ARE NOT MINE! They are what they should
look like....

And these are what the Santa Hats should look like...

Here is where I am sure you are Rolling in the floor laughing your head off!  I know, they are NOTHING
like the pictures above! I am really saddened by this attempt or whatever you want to call it!

Ok, these are on the cute Candy Cane tray I made, they don't look too bad on there...maybe
presentation really does make a difference!  Nah, they still look ridiculous!

And, these are the Peppermint Patties, no they are not pretty either, something that looks
so stinking simple, I still mess it up!
Now that you have had your laugh, and I know you were laughing, I will just say, I am not sure that I will EVER make anymore cake balls!  Merry Christmas to all...oh and yes, I am still taking them to my family's and my inlaw's Christmas. I figure everyone needs a good laugh!

This and That

Ok, I have been sick this week, but I managed between fever breaks using what energy I had to do a few crafts, a couple for gifts, since the days are ticking down and needing these gifts. I did not plan to be sick, so instead of cleaning my house when I felt good, I had to make these things.    Here goes, it is a few different things.
This is a simple, but cute gift card holder.

If while on Pinterest, you saw the serving tray made out of candy mints, well, this is it!  I love it!

This is just like the others, only NOEL

Felt Pillow with Felt Flower

I found a blog today called the DIY Dish and I LOVE it!  They really have some cool things and great tutorials.  It is really great if I can do it and it turn out.  I first found felt scraps and made this felt flower, that does not match at all, but at least you can see the variations in the flower petals.  The flowers are so stinking cute and so easy to make!  The hardest part is cutting them out and that is not hard, just a little boring.

The pillow is some navy blue felt I had left over from a previous project I made, that I may post one day...long story about that one.  Anyhoo, I decided since my 9 yr old had navy in her bedroom, I would try this one for her.  So, I did the flower in Navy too.  The blog shows you all monochromatic colors too, but you can mix it up.  I made the pillow bigger than what they did in the blog, but the possibilities are endless. You should also check out their blog as well.

My trial run flower.  I think it is too cute, even though it is mis-matched.
