Pinterest Try Thursday

I'm happy to say, I have been busy with work (sewing) this week, so haven't had time to try something new from Pinterest...except food of course.
I have been trying to post more to my Weight Watchers board and I found I had posted this one twice, so I must have really wanted to try it.

I didn't have time to take pictures, so I used the one from the source of the recipe

Weight Watchers Butterfinger Dessert

There was some discussion on the blog of how many pts. I came up with 4pts.
I used a sugar free Angel food Cake which would make it even less.

The great thing about this is that Mr. SS loved it too. I try to find recipes that I can eat and that he will eat so I'm not always cooking 2 meals.

I don't have dessert often now so this was really a treat.

I finished a lampshade for a friend of mine today.
I used the same method as in the tutorial I posted here.

 The cutest little shells for her beach themed guest room.

It is sew easy, ladies. You can find great shades to cover at a thrift store. The only sewing is sewing the bias strips and you could even glue those. The instructions seem long, but that's because I didn't want to leave anything out.
Just click here and give it a try. Post your creation, come back and tell me so I can link to it.

Also, if you try anything from Pinterest and post about it, come back, tell me and I will link to your blog.
Sounds like fun to me.

In honor of my two recent giveaway wins, I am going to be having a giveaway soon. Just need to think on it.
It has been a long time and I want to do something special for my followers. So check back.

God is Good!!
Life is Good!!

The dessert sounds wonderful! We make something similar that isn't the WW version but I need yours now. We are exercising and trying to lose a few pounds.

The lampshade is pretty. I love pretty lampshades. :)

Missed the post about your wins. Must go find that.

Your lamp shades are always amazing and add such a custom detail to a room! Hopefully you are busy making little purses too because we sold another one! I hope to see you soon. = )

I have a lampshade just like that which is looking pretty sad -- can't wait to try your method!
