Chocolate Mummies

Standard

I made a whole batch of these for my Princess’ 2nd grade class on Halloween. I used the little fun size Hershey bars because I’m cheapo the ogre.

THE RESULT

WHAT I LEARNED

* White crepe paper is nearly impossible to find in not-so-small ruralish Utah town where I live. Only place to have it was the grocery store. Go figure.

* Cut the crepe paper in half lengthwise before wrapping the chocolate. Make it easy on yourself by folding it in half and then in half and then in half so that you only have like 2 inches of length to cut. Does that make any sense at all? I don’t have a picture, so you’ll have to trust me on this one.

* I should have bought the single-size pack of googley eyes that I thought was too big instead of the multi-size pack that didn’t have enough small ones anyway.

 * The Royal Princess thought I was the coolest mom ever.

THE VERDICT

Success!

The Welcome Message You Surely Won’t Read

Standard

Hello and welcome to Less Pinning More Doing!

What is this blog for, you may wonder? Well, you’ve probably heard of this amazing little website called “Pinterest,” a kind of virtual bulletin board where you can save any and every image you ever find on the great wide internets. It’s a *wee* bit addicting. I kind of really love Pinterest with a love that is loverly. But…I *might* find myself spending a bit more time staring at the screen hitting that “Pin it” button than I ought. That’s where Less Pinning More Doing comes in! From here on out, I will be posting Pinterest projects I’ve tried (and things I come up with on my own) – whether that be a craft, a recipe, an organization tip, a workout idea or…anything I guess. I don’t know, we’ll see where this goes!

And now…GO FORTH AND DO!
