Make My Week #47 – Christmas Decoration

This is another ‘pin real life’.

I found this pin and as I’m a Nativity nut I felt all inspired. Here is the original:

Course I changed it up a little.

This is my version.

There are aspects of it that I like it more than the original, which is as it should be with pinterest and anything that inspires you. See something awesome and put your own flavour on it make it yours (or pretend you intended it to be different when you have a fail-to-execute-as-expected moment!).


Make My Week #46 – Christmassy Edibles

The lovely Dee invented/coined/created the idea that we ought to ‘pin real life’. For those who aren’t pinterest fans or converts – pinterest is a web hangout for creating virtual pinboards of all the pretty things one comes across. But Dee rightly said we need to use pinterest to inspire us rather than create desire/dissatisfaction about our own lives.

On Friday night we had a bloggers Christmas swap – more about that tomorrow!

And I had a chance to make some Christmas Edibles for the occasion so I did these all inspired by pin, pin, pinterest ideas.

Spiced cupcake Christmas Trees with gingerbread stars.

North Pole Cupcakes

and Christmas Tree brownies.


So this is my first ‘pin real life’ but I can see I’ll be doing more!

It’s such a satisfying feeling to take inspiration and make it concrete/ do something with it.
