How Do We Rate Our Pinterest Projects?

All Pinterest projects really come down to three things.  Cost, ease, and lasting impression.  We want to you to be able to make a big impression on your friends, family members, or co-workers.  With that said here is the break down of our ratings.

Cost – We want you to know exactly how much our projects cost. So we will give you a flat price for everything.  We will also provide a link to a detailed list of cost per item on each project.

Ease- On a scale from 1-5 we will rate ease based off time spent, and steps taken. You may find that a 1 is time consuming and requires extreme concentration and focus to complete. While a 5 can almost be done with your eyes shut… Almost.

Impression- On a scale from 1-5 we will rate impression based on your projects wow factor. Did you hear squeals from excitiment or oo’s and aww’s? Chances are your project is rated a 5.

Confetti Ratings– This is our overall rating to let you know if the project is worth your while.

Bronze Confetti

This is the project you wish you didn’t spend your Saturday doing.  It was lack luster, time consuming, or expensive. If it is a recipe, you’ll most likely never make it again. If it’s a gift, your recipient will probably stash it in their closet. It could be decorations that you’ll never use or items you’ll re-gift. Carefully consider the outcome before doing these projects.

Silver Confetti

Some will love it, and some might not.  It could really go either way, but it’s up to you.  There is no shame in making this as is.  But it can also be used as inspiration for something even better.

Gold Confetti

This is the bee’s knees, the panda’s bow tie, the cherry on top, champagne bubbles. This will not be forgotten. It is quintessentially what makes our love.  The Love of Confetti.

Now that you know how our projects are rated lets get stated.  For the love of confetti!

My sister and I have worked on thousands of craft projects since we were young and we might have an unhealthy addiction to creating what we thought was perfection.  I can still remember the day in my 5th grade class when I was told I could make a sculpture of my choosing. I was so excited that I had free rein and I knew exactly what I would make, my beloved pet schnauzer Pepper.  While other kids in my class were making plates or ashtrays (that was still a thing) I was working hard on how to create a beard for Pepper that really showed her strong personality.  And let me tell you my sculpture captured Pepper’s personality perfectly.

As for my sister Ashley she still remembers having to present what she’s an expert on to her 10th grade English.  She only had 30 minutes to teach her class and naturally Ashley decided to present on how to properly wrap a present. She loved to make her friends and family members feel as special as possible and she felt that wrapping a present is the perfect finishing touch.  By going above and beyond with wrapping a present it shows even more thoughtfulness, care, love, and puts that extra cherry on top.

We believe our passion like anyone else’s is due to our friends, family, and co-workers.  We love to make people feel special and to enjoy any experience.  We want to show our gratitude, love, and appreciation through our projects.  If we can make our parents smile because of our clever Pepper sculpture or our friends smile by going above and beyond with gift wrapping we want to do it.

With a passion for creating, cooking, and entertaining Ashley and I are so excited to start a blog.  Let us guide you through projects for your home, holidays, family dinners, or any type of celebration.  We will let you know every detail that matters with each project we tackle.  A step by step guide on how to create with tips.  A timeline of how long the project really took as well as difficulty, costs, and even our overall review.  Let us help you decide what project is worth tackling based on your timeline, experience, budget, and how much you want your friends or family members to envy your talents.

So dive in with us, and lets get started for the love of confetti.
