I know this will surprise you all since I’m so crafty and Martha-y and all that; but sometimes my crafts just don’t turn out all that well. What we have here is a glittered nightmare.
It was supposed to be a Valentine’s Day garland. I do still kind of like the birds though, I wish I hadn’t poked holes through them so I could use them on a card or something. That red glitter is amazing. I got it on clearance at Michael’s after having drooled over it during the entire Christmas Shopping Season. It’s Garnet by Martha Stewart.
You know the worst part? My husband went to JoAnn’s with me in November and we picked out the bird Sizzix die together. Well, when I went to use it 2 nights ago for this project, I realized that Sizzix is in some kind of racket and my beloved bird die with only work with some kind of special big Sizzix machine, not the original machine that I own. And, of course, it’s the one receipt from the last 12 years that I can’t find. Since it was a Christmas item, I’m sure JoAnn’s will give me approximately 4 cents in store credit with no receipt. So what I had to do was trace around the holes and then just make a template. That’s right. I cut out 4 of those suckers by hand.
If that’s not craptabulous enough for you, here’s something else crappy. Blue Bunny Light Bunny Tracks Ice Cream.
Now I have eaten a lot of diet food in the last 3 or 4 years, but nothing as disgusting as this “ice cream” (I’m being generous here by calling it that). Oh my gosh! Not only is it bad from the first bite, but it also leaves an aftertaste like cold 8 day old coffee grounds. Bleck. The peanut butter and “chocolate” are super hard too, I thought I was going to break my tooth on this stuff!
Most of you know that I am a Peeps Purist. But, when I saw these, I just had to get them. That’s because I thought they were little sailors.
Any guesses on what they really are? That’s wrong. Nope. Unh-uh.
They are snowmen! I know, they look like chimney-sweeping sailors, but they are supposed to be snowmen. Great job, Peeps.
That felt good. I should do more CrapTABULOUS Tuesdays.
