Pineapple Express

May 18, 2017
Hi friends!  I hope your day has been going well!  I spent my morning trying to unload a lot of my crap onto other people at a garage sale.  I always forget how time consuming and how much work goes into prepping for a garage sale.  Each time I have one, I think “never again”… then a few years pass, more junk is collected in my basement, my memory fades, and I attempt it again.  Much like childbirth. ?

Moving on.  I’ve been seeing pineapples popping up everywhere for spring and summer!  They are so fun, and they seem to be on everything…home decor, clothing, jewelry, and even phone cases!

I rounded up a few of my favorite pineapple finds and down below I am admitting to a horrific DIY pineapple tank FAIL.  Boohoo.  I attempt a lot of DIY projects because I like the craftiness and creativity.  It helps keep the crazies away.  But, not all of them are successes.  This one was especially bad!  And, I’m totally bummed because I ruined an awesome tank doing it.  Luckily it wasn’t super expensive, but still!  It’s the point!  Anyway, let’s do the good news first.  Pineapple fun!

Aren’t they so fun?  I love that grey tee for only $12!  It’s on it’s way to me as we speak…
Ok, so, here’s the epic DIY fail.

I purchased this iron on decal from Target, and the instructions were incredibly simple.  However, part of the decal stuck to the shirt, while the other part remained on the transfer paper.  I attempted it several times with no success and finally threw in the towel.  Bummer!  Do you think I could get away with trying to say it is vintage?  #nicetry

Have you had any DIY fails lately?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
