I may or may not have mentioned before that I am not very crafty at all! Thanks to Pinterest I am becoming more crafty but I seriously need step by step instructions and sometimes step by step pictures. And a step by step video probably would not hurt either.

My daughter (isn’t she lovely) on the other hand is EXTREMELY crafty and creative and AMAZING! She makes me jealous and I seriously cannot wait for her to get older so that she can make me all the stuff I see on Pinterest.

As you can see, I cheated and bought a kit (told you I was not crafty) but she used her creativity to make a design all her own.

My kids do not get a lot of sweet. And they certainly don’t get to make giant cookies covered in frosting and candies that they will later be able to nibble on. So her face in this picture always makes me laugh because I know that in her head she is “dreaming” of eating this sugary masterpiece!

Finished product!

And here it is all finished and ready to go! Not too bad for a first time and with no help from Mom!
