Pin it, do it challenge update

I never did get around to checking in when I made the leaf silhouette, so here are the results from the first pin it challenge.

I bought two shades of blue green for the first layer of paint and a spray paint called “Sweet Cream” to offset the silhouettes. Then I raided the boy’s neighborhood for some large leaves. The result looks a bit like giant raindrops, which wasn’t quite what I was going for, but was nice for a first try. Next time, I’ll search for non-tropical plants.

For today’s challenge, I decided to make the Healthy Pumpkin Muffins from No Sugar Sweet Life. It’s a low fat, low sugar recipe that involves lots of whole ingredients. It was very easy to prepare the mix, almost like a banana bread. I did, however, have to go a ways away to find some of the ingredients that are not readily available at my local grocery store, but I always do enjoy a trip to Whole Foods :).

  1. That is a nice craft idea! Might be fun to do several layers with different leaves. You might end up with a leaf pile πŸ™‚

  2. Oooh, I love Uniflame’s suggestion for the multi-colored different leaves. The muffins look really delicious but I know it can be a pain to shop two different stores (I do the same to get good produce). Though I’ve yet to visit Whole Foods!

    Thanks for playing along Gricel. πŸ™‚

  3. Those are some pretty muffins! I came over from Trish’s round-up of Pin It and Do It Challenge posts. Glad you found a couple of pins to try!
