Since we have faster internet in Qingdao and are on vacation I have spent much time on Pinterest. I love all the awesome craft ideas, beautiful pictures, fitness pins and of course all the food!
There's one big problem with Pinterest, though. Everyone posts tons and tons of delicious looking, way-too much sugar-filled dessert pictures. And well, sometimes, I give in, and bake them!
But if you notice the title of my food board is "In all things give praise." This is to remind me that even in eating, baking and cooking I can give praise to God and thank Him for His goodness, even in a scone.
Here's one of the few things I've tried from recipe inspirations on Pinterest.
I didn't take any pictures but I made these petite chocolate chip scones for Church. They were awesome!
They looked the same as in the picture, thanks to a cookie rack dripping over the sink.
We love scones and I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy they were to make. They would be perfect for taking to a party, since the recipe made so many bite size treats. I recommend putting less chocolate chips. They turned out to be soooo sweet, like chocolate chip cookies. I prefer scones that are less sweet, so next time I will put just a few chocolate chips in.

I painted a canvas the desired color I wanted (the teal) and let it dry. After it had dried completely I put a tree sticker of a tree on the canvas and painted everything black. After it had dried, I pulled off the sticker. Pretty easy!
You can do this with any stickers.
There are many more ideas along this line of creating at this awesome blog. Her's are WAY better than mine. But I'm learning. :)
