A Year in Review

Why not celebrate the little things? This project will help you remember all the good things that happened over the year. Starting January 1st, write all the good things that have happened to you on little pieces of paper and stick them in a container. These could be accomplishments, funny moments… any memories worth saving. Then, on December 31st open the jar and read all the amazing things that happen to you in 2015.

Cranberry Pepper Jelly Dip

Snacks are a necessity when you and your guests wait hours for Thanksgiving dinner.  So we dived right into some appetizers on Pinterest. We found a recipe for Cranberry Pepper Jam dip which was repinned hundreds of time. The original recipe is from the blog Life With The Crust Cut Off. It looked simple and delicious so we had to give it a try.

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!
