Your daughter will love this, they said
It's so easy, they said.
B to the S.
This lovely picture is what I set out to accomplish:
Pretty, right? Yea, in Photoshop Land! Psht.
So, I gathered the supplies...
I got my little one all psyched up with fairies in tow...
And I got to work...
|Activate the glow sticks and cut them open|
|Add glitter, seal tight and shake|
And this is what I ended up with.
|Not terrible.. but certainly not floating fairies.|
Oh, but wait! It gets WORSE. You see, I read somewhere that adding a bit of peroxide to the jar will help prolong the glow. So, I did. And we shook. A lot. And what we got is what, I'm sure, will forever traumatize my toddler.
For the next two hours, with tears in her eyes and disdain in her voice, until she hoarded her little fairy clan off to bed, The Toddler made sure I knew that I killed Tinkerbell
Noooooo!!! MOOOOMMMMM!!!! Why you do DAT?!! Where's my Tink?!
Is that BLOOD?!!! Are my fairy friends bleeding? Mama, whyyyyyy?
Mommy. Not a good choice. That was not nice. Go think about it.
Mama.. can Daddy gimme a tubby tonight and not you??
Ok, Mommy.. gimme kisses.. but not my friends. You no touch them no more.
So, like I said.. Therapy grade CRAFT FAIL..
Speaking of Craft Fail, Robyn over at Hollow Tree Ventures wrote about my miserable attempt at this putrid Pinterest pin! You can check it out here:
