I Am Crafty!

Pin It Now! You'd think I'd learn my oven lesson from the whole baked plastic incident. But if you saw how little counter space we have you would see that there is no lesson to be learned. Only mold balls to be made.
Don't know how long this beans, rice, and veggie dish lingered in the oven (less than a week) so I cannot tell you exactly how to replicate this Chia Pet Mold Ball. But I can tell you that I was in awe at my crafting abilities when I pulled this bad boy out of the oven.

I'm thinking about adding this Chia Pet Mold Ball to the prizes for my "Bless Your Mom" giveaway. I think it would really accent the FABULOUS necklace Christine at Q Handmade Jewelry is offering. Or if you know Emily Maynard from The Bachelor you could try and steal hers. Here is what she told the Possessionista about her Q Handmade necklace:

Possessionista: What are you obsessing over right now?
Emily Maynard: I have a necklace from Q Handmade that I haven't taken off since it came in the mail! Its so simple but goes with everything (including mold balls!) and has so much meaning behind it. People are always asking me where I got it.

I don't want you obsessing over a necklace, because it is no Chia Pet Mold Ball, but Christine's necklaces are beautiful so check out the selection you would have to choose from (if you enter the Bless Your Mom" giveaway!) over at Q Handmade Jewelry.
This is the style I'm getting with "Desperate" on it. Totally kidding. That would be pretty funny though. I'm getting "Shiloh" (my husband) on it.
Pin It Now!

My sister just texted me and told me she was dying laughing at this post. So I raced home from Walmart to read it. Totally worth the speeding ticket! That thing is gnarly!

Devin said...

I'm torn between laughter and horror.

Going with option one, however, because I am fairly certain that a Mother figure in this very household may or may not have done something like this before....

Also--totally getting in on your Mom contest. It's just that my mom reads my blog and I'm all Miss Type A Perfectionist.....been working on just the right words for let's just say 'some time now'.

Seriously? It looks like a whire Puffle from Club Penguin was hiding in your oven.

(P.S. My son would love to attempt replicating that.)

You people are too kind. Thanks for all your support and envy regarding my mold ball skills. I am trying to not get a big head over it.
