Watch The Guilty Crafter videos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cook poorly, I craft obsessively and I love the look of a retro cocktail. When I am feeling guilty about taking time away from my family with my obsessions, I make videos about my guilt as "The Guilty Crafter" or I blog here. Thanks for stopping by!

Retro Jello Mold Dessert

I am interrupting my usual Craft Wars coverage for an important update: retro Jello molds are awesome.

I have one from Tupperware which I bought mainly because I was able to score a retro pale blue one which looks super vintage and cute. Yesterday, I decided to actually use it. It's tough making fun lunches every day for the kiddos in the summer, amirite? One box of orange jello and a can of mandrin oranges later and they were singing my praises. Add a few cupcake ballerinas that dance and jiggle on to the top of the Jello and you too can achieve the coveted "Mom of the Day" award. The ballerinas really are hilarious- don't skimp. You can find them on Etsy by searching "Cupcake Ballerinas." For example I love these because I don't have some of these colors (the seller handpainted these- cute idea!).
