Blogger Bloopers with Jen from Tatertots and Jello

Our guest blogger today needs no introduction (but I'm going to give her one anyhow).  It's Jen from Tatertots and Jello.  Jen has a billion cool projects under her belt, she hosts the biggest link party I know of on her blog, and she is extremely kind and sweet.  I'm thinking she doesn't sleep much because the girl is a powerhouse.  She is everywhere in blogland, participating in every series, event, and gathering in existence.  I was so excited that she was willing to stop in for a visit today.  Welcome Jen!

Hi there IAMHMR readers!!
It's Jen from Tatertots and Jello here. And I am so excited about Cheri's Blogger Blooper series!!

I think it's easy to look at blogs and think that everyone has perfect homes and perfect lives.  
When in reality it's all edited to look perfect. I love that people can share their not so perfect messy lives and failed projects.

I have had my share of craft fails for sure!!  
You know when you have a vision in your mind and the finished result just doesn't live up to your expectation? Here's one of those projects. I made it last fall and was so excited about it until I finished it and saw the creation - lol!! This is kind of what I had in mind: 

I thought it would be fun to make a ruffled lamp shade. So I took an old lamp shade that I found at a garage sale, cut up some fabric and sewed a bunch of ruffles and hot glued them on to the lampshade.

Let's just say the finished lampshade was NOT what I was going for. AND, when I put it on the lamp, the ruffles are so thick that the light can't get through. So funny!!

So - I'd love to know --- Have you ever had a craft fail? What was it? 

Thanks for joining in Jen!  Want to read about a few more blogger bloopers? 
I remember reading THIS POST from Christie as A Lemon Squeezy Home.  It made me laugh because I think we've all been there....well, minus being chased by ravenous dogs :)
Also, did you know there's a whole web site for craft fails?  I just found it HERE.
Here are a few fun links from it:



Thanks for stopping by.  See you tomorrow for Wake Up Wednesday.
