Pinterest Fail

Last weekend I got crafty. Blame it on Pinterest. This is why I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest. It encourages me to be crafty, but the reality is I'm not a crafty person. Therefore, the end result of my craft project is an epic fail. Epic fail, people! Anyway, this picture on Pinterest inspired me.

Cute, right? 
I figured I could manage this little project. How hard could it be to arrange empty picture frames? I happened to have three empty picture frames lying around my house so it was a win/win project. Blogger World, arranging empty picture frames is kind of hard. Here's my version of the Pinterest picture. 

What? What is that?
Obviously....another Pinterest fail on my part. Even if the picture quality was better, it would still look like crap. Let's be honest, don't tiptoe around my feelings!

Sister #1, Sister #2, and Tonya gave me a "Come to Jesus" talk about this project. They were honest and informed me it looked like crap.  

After some soul searching, a quick trip to Hobby Lobby, and help from Canada Travis I fixed my Pinterest fail. I think it's much better. 

I'm not quite done, but it's a good start. Last night I painted the L red; and this weekend I plan to buy one more white frame for the empty red frame. After those two things I think this project will be complete. Thank goodness! No more craft time for me.
