If you are on Facebook I am sure you are aware of Pinterest. I resisted for a long time. I do not spend that much time on Facebook and figured the last thing I needed was one more thing in my life to take up time. While recovering from my mastectomy I gave in and conformed.
Randomly I will jump in and find a chuckle at some things, roll my eyes at others and “pin” things that I find very interesting even though in my heart I know I will never, ever do anything with them. Many of the things I look at are either food items that I think would be very tasty or craft item. Madison is a very creative child whose mind is always going. I try to find things that we could do together.
With the holidays upon us, the other day I saw something that I thought was perfect. The DIY peppermint candy serving tray. The instructions seemed easy enough. After the holiday show at Madison’s school on Tuesday I took her home with me. On the way we stopped for the main, and only ingredient, starbright mints. At home we preheated the oven, laid out the waxed paper on a cookie sheet and crafted our design. About 8 minutes in the oven and our serving dishes were ready!
Work of Art…no. Fun time with my baby, most defiantly!
