Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m a “Pinterest” addict. The first thing I do at night is log on and start looking for “pins”. I can not sleep because of all the project going through my head. Therefore, I am starting a new Category on my blog. “They pinned it, I tried it”. I will post the successes, failures, tweaks and the lessons learned while completing my “Pins”.
On June 29, 2012 a huge storm ripped though Zanesville, Oh. Many of our residents lost power and had downed trees and wind damage. We were lucky and never lost our power, but my great-niece, Cassidy, was not as lucky. Her mom and both of her Grandmas were without power. So Cassidy spent the night with us. She is (almost) 18, so of course she is up on all the new technology. She helped me set up a “Facebook” page and we surfed the net for ideas.
My sister-in-law, Kelley, was also without power and had a huge party planned, so we decide to try a “Pin” for desert. Since it was close to the 4th of July, we chose the “Fruit Flag”. We did tweak it a bit from the original “Pin”. My daughter, Ashley, thought the bananas would not be a good idea since they would probably turn brown in the heat, so we choose regular marshmallows and cut them in half. Cass’s idea was to add small marshmallow for “stars”. The suggestion at the party was to try “cheesecake bites” in place of the marshmallows…next time!
We just got home and it was a hit!
