Pinterest, oh how I love thee







So by now, I'm pretty sure everyone has at least heard of Pinterest.

If you haven't, let me know what rock you have been hiding under, mama could 
use a break from the real world!

There are so many fantabulous ideas out there 
(yep, just made up an awesome word...gonna pin it too...probably going to be the next "cool")

Sometimes I get so excited about an idea (or maybe I just keep seeing the same idea and loving it)
that I pin the item twice.
Like this:

Ballard Designs


Trash to Couture


Sometimes there are crazy funny things that just make me laugh like this:

I will wear this with my Pajama Jeans.
Peekaru
I think I will wear it with my pajama jeans.

true that!

This made me laugh:)

But the thing I love most about Pinterest is all of the inspiration I get from so many great ideas.

I saw this

and made this

I saw this
baby gift
occasionally crafty

and made this

I saw this
cupcakes stands
modern moments

and made this

I saw this

and made this

Of course, that's not all.  That's just a sampling of what I have made thanks to pinterest.

One of my friends had a genius idea of making a "pins I have conquered" board on pinterest.  
Isn't that a great idea?!

And you know what else I loved about it...
She reviewed each of those things she pinned and wrote her thoughts.
This was especially helpful for recipes.

The final thing I love about pinterest is that it has directed so many people to my blog.
I love love love it when people find inspiration from things I do, so it makes my heart happy when they 
find my blog and are able to be inspired to be crafty.

So, what do you love about pinterest?

Some funnies there to be sure! I thought your cupcakes turned out much cuter than the original inspiration!

I love pinterest and am on there as well, too much probably. So much inspiration and just down right stuff to droll over.
BTW, I tried to put your button on my blog and it won't work... I copied it all and pasted it into my html widget and nothing...I must be doing something wrong. Ugh.. I will overcome.
