Pinterest Addiction

Pinterest Logo
I just wanted to take a moment to talk about how much I love this internet sensation, Pinterest. If you don't know about it, you've been living under a huge rock. This website is fabulous. The basic point is that you can "pin" images (save) onto categorized "boards" (folders, kinda) and the image is linked to the website it originated from. I joined because I thought it'd be great to convert my already-saved-bookmarks into bookmarks with pictures so I could find things easier. But then I realized it is one of the best place for inspiration. For just about anything.

For example, I never cook. And yet, I've been inspired to actually cook these things. And they were awesome. They have all been pinned to my "Recipes to Try" Board. And I actually tried them!
And these are the recipes next on my list:
1. Grilled Cheese Update: Avacado, Bacon, Sourdough, Pepperjack...., 2. Campfire Cones!!

I've found some great ideas for school, too. It's so great because my friend, Arianne, is a crazy teacher blog follower like I am a craft blog follower and since I "follow" her on pinterest I get to see her favorite finds! I could just follow the blogs myself, but I run out of time. :( Arianne also has a blog where she shares her fabulous ideas for teaching kindergarten. Check it out here!
1. Sight Word Chants with Free Printable, 2. Fabric Book Slings, 3. Homemade Play Dough,
 4. Make Words with Blocks, 5. Sandpaper Letters Kit

The board that has the most pins, probably, is my "Wanna Wear It" Board where I post things I would love to own.
1. Yellow, Gray, and Cream, 2. Wrap Watch, 3. Big Rock Dress, 4. Cardigan, Lace, Chiffon, Pearl Love, 5. Apothecary Skirt, 6. Hedgehog Necklace,  7. Bow Tie Shorts 8. Feather Stacked Rings,

Of course, if you hadn't figured it out yet, Pinterest is a dream for crafters. I have so many projects saved on categorized, easy-to-find boards like "Women's Sewing", "Jewelry Ideas", "General Crafts", etc. Heaven.  A cool part about pinterest is you can "repin" others' pins. Once you repin 5 of their things, you can just go to their boards to find out they have the same taste as you and then find even more projects to pin from their "boards". Once you follow them your page will be updated with all the new stuff they pin. Awesome. Here are some things that are on my to-do list.
1. Fabric Bows, 2. Super Simple Summer Skirt,  3. Angel Top,  4. Awesome Knot Necklace,  5. Word Garland, 6. Striped Knit Cardigan, 7.  Gorgeous Braided Bracelet ,  8. Little Man Bowtie Onesies,  9. 4th of July Wreath

And then it is a great place to save pictures that you think are just cute and/or awesome.
1. Stylin',  2. Upward Dog,  3. Love,  4. Baby Dwight Halloween Costume,5.  Yoga Cat, 6. Baby Leia

So if you'd like...
Follow Me on Pinterest

I will warn you: this website is highly addicting. I think to myself, "I really should just get up off my butt and go make something," but then I find something else...

I apologize for the lack of posting lately, especially craft posts. I am working on some things, but can't get the motivation to finish them. I also just started teaching summer school and am still trying to balance my time-you know, between catching up on DVR and going to the pool and throwing some sewing and lesson plans in there as much as I can. New stuff coming later this week. 

Promise, promise, promise.
