Some days you're the windshield....

You know the rest......some days you're the bug. Today, we're the bug. Splattt!

We're inspired by The Vanilla Bean Baker who recently was brave enough to post some of her disappointments. From what we've seen on her blog, we're certain hers are few and far between. If you're interested in decorated cookies, you should definitely check her out.

We regularly fall on our face but we don't usually share those moments here. We're not sure's all part of learning and stretching. We learn more from our failures than we ever do from our successes and mastering new skills always involves lots of practice and lots of trial and error. In our experience, LOTS and LOTS of error.

And that brings us to our most recent failure. We changed our mind about how to proceed with this bracelet and set about unknotting and harvesting the beads for a re-do.

Grandma Coco's gone to fetch the scissors. :(


  1. Hold the door to the confessional open on the way out please...You know last week when you asked me what I was planning to come up with this year on my blog as a free pattern...and I said "nothing"? Well...truth be told, I have been working like crazy on what I thought was going to be an ultra easy, super cute Santa kitchen set. I finally got it together last week and went to write the post, only to discover I have Santa's beard quilted on the BOTTOM triangle of the apron, not the top where it should be! Had I been able to stop the fits of giggles everytime I went to fix it, it would have been done by now but...maybe next year :) It does look super silly...even for Santa.
    You're right - we do learn from our mistakes and they help keep us humble. (and often amused! :)

  2. Thank you so much for mentioning my site on yours and for including the link. Very sweet of you. Tossing my failures in the garbage in a fit of frustration (though very wasteful) was a lot easier than untying all your tiny knots. You have more patience than I :)
