i’m still working on making our little nest super cute and homey. so i have this list. and it keeps growing. bleh.
this week, i knocked something off the list with the “help” of my trusty ol friend, Pinterest. have you seen the pin for painting roses with celery? i found the idea here (thanks to Craftsy) and decided i would give it a whirl.
so here is my celery. looks great huh?
i patted the stalk dry and then dipped it in some paint.
and i would call this a bust. it looks nothing really like a rose. bummer. more like a bunch of broken polka dots. so i re-dipped it and tried again. it pains me to tell you the stamp didn’t get any better (for me at least- you may be a celery stamp pro). not to mention, i felt this glare of failure in my presence.
may girl wasn’t too impressed.
so the good news? i got to cross something off the list! the bad news, i hung something a lil….wonky on my wall and now i get to stare at it every day..telling me, “you celery rose failure, you.” we’ll see how long it lasts before i re-paint it.
