So Pinterest is kind of amazing. Everyone on Pinterest is a classier, craftier, more fashionable version of their true selves and they are all going to have perfect weddings and be amazing parents according to their pins. Any pin for a craft that looks remotely interesting and would be accomplished by me in some miraculous event is captioned "super easy tailored sweater with hood made from an old t-shirt" or the like. Life is super easy and DIY on Pinterest. It is a magical land. Also, people on Pinterest are really into doing their nails and are really good at it apparently.
When I had a friend's wedding shower coming up, I decided that I would make actually make a Pinterest project and impress everyone there. I was the first of my generation to get married so at these showers I feel a little bit required to make domestic life look as easy yet intimidating as a Pinteret project, when the reality is most days my house is covered in laundry and I am worried that Little Child is going to die from preferring household objects for snacks over her organic dog food.
My mom used to make diaper cakes for showers when I was younger and people always loved them. I love using dish towels at home (they are so easy to wash and save so much money compared to always using paper towels!) so when I found a dish towel cake on Pinterest for wedding showers I was excited to give it a try. The cutting board base and spatulas are off of the bride's registry and the towels and other kitchen accessories are added flair. It was a hit at the party and I got to brag about how I really make crafts off of Pinterest.
