Word Is Getting Out About My Blogging

In Jen's Nailed It Challenge, Pinterest by Jen16 Comments

So last week one evening around 7:30 p.m. my doorbell rang. I was a little slow getting down there, but when my husband answered the door no one was there, just a single stapled together craft idea sitting on my doorstop from another blog.

No note, nothing. Hmm, this is very curious. Well alrighty then, is it a challenge or a desire to help inspire a new blogger? I suspect the person had internet access in order to print it, but didn’t perhaps want to be identified. This could have been A LOT worse. Oh well, I ‘m up for trying anything!

Anyway, how hard can this be and peeps are like 10 cents now that Easter is over and I have most of the other stuff hanging out in my cupboards.

Here we go:

First step in the handout says to make the 4 walled bottom part first and then make the steepled roof. Set aside and let dry for about an hour.

Then set the roof.

Yeah, about that…..

I guess I will just let the picture speak for itself.

Well we can still have my old standby of a Peep smooshed between 2 crackers.

My helper even gave this creation a thumbs up!

Repeat after me,”Peeps are not art. They are food”. Win some you lose some.

So now I really need to Nail that fried chicken dinner Pinterest Challenge .

Anyway, before I go I thought I would share with you the end results from our weekend. My daughter and her bunny won several blue ribbons and performed fabulously at the County Fair. We were so proud of her!

The kids and the baby had a wonderful Easter weekend. They played with and fed baby animals, got incredibly dirty, ate lots of candy, went to church and had a wonderful time.

I am so grateful for family. It’s where my story begins and ends.

Here are some pics from the weekend!

Stay Happy! Stay Informed!




  1. A hand delivered challenge!!! Oh my! I like your house better. It has more charm and when the peep moves in he has the opportunity to add his own special touch… Sets itself apart from all those modular peep homes that look exactly alike… lol

  2. You've got stalker all over the place haha! That looks about how my attempt at something like that would go. But hey it doesn't matter what it looks like right? As long as it still tastes good. . .

  3. Yes a stalker. I wonder what's next? You did nail it though. Bwahahahahahahahaha.

    What a fun weekend. Great shots.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  4. If this is a stalker, it is probably the best type as far as things go. The pictures could have contained something entirely different. I got off lucky!

  5. Congratulations to your daughter and her bunny!

    What in the world with that stalker note? Hopefully it's not from a PEEPing Tom. Har, har

  6. Haha! I did that last week on a blog and was like where is the delete button! Yours was nothing I knew where you were going.

  7. Haha!!! Seriously. I make jokes like that all of the time and my kids just stare at me and blink. You and I were meant to be friends!

  8. Uhm that sort of dropoff is kind of scary. lol I'm super paranoid about stalkers and whatnot so I don't think I'd like that very much. I love your execution of these pin projects! Congrats to your daughter for her hard work and blue ribbons! What a good girl! I love the little crown your youngest is wearing, sooo sweet. The animals look like so much fun

  9. Yay for blue ribbons! And finding a random peep suggestion (or any, for that matter) on my doorstep would have freaked. me. out!

  10. yeah, my peeps project would probably totally look like that, especially considering my failures with gingerbread houses.

  11. That's so funny! I've never had that happen to me! Great job on your new creation!
