Sometimes, I get really excited about new design ideas but when they get executed are actually pretty lame. At times, the result can be horrendous AND very comical. I think it happens to everyone creative and I am not the least bit shy about it. I have concepts floating in my head all the time and when I am lucky enough to have a few minutes, I like to try and play around with them. And this will launch my new category …..#fail.
On one of my frequent Michaels trips, I came across some neon hippie foam cutouts. I thought they would make a fun addition to brighten up a party, and because I am dreadfully tired of the paper pendant everyone is throwing on wood skewers, I thought I would spice it up a bit. I started with a white lollipop stick (which is not a good idea … it doesn’t hold up well wet). Then, I adhered the smiley face and peace signs. It just, doesn’t look right. (and also doesn’t look good) I guess I’ll stick to cute striped straws in my mason jars. Who needs a stir stick anyways??? #fail
