I have a new love!

Pinterest! It has changed my life

What is Pinterest?
I'm glad you asked.
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.


For Christmas this year I made all my gifts for my friends from ideas I got from Pinterest

I found an adorable quote from Audrey Hepburn and I searched and searched until I found the perfect printable for it

I absolutely love this quote, it makes me so happy every time I read it.

So here is the original idea I got from Pinterest....

And here's how mine turned out...

And there I am in the reflection

I got a frame from Wal-Mart and sanded it, then painted the frame white. I tried sanding it again to make it more rustic looking but chunks of paint were coming off and it didn't look so good, so I decided to leave it the way it was. I also added ribbon to the backing of the frame so it could be hung on a wall. I really liked the way it turned out. I downloaded the quote from this cute blog It Works For Bobbi and printed it on 8x10 photo paper.

My other creation was this little beauty that I made my friend from Alaska and my sister, they both seemed to love it!

Unfortanely, I can't find it on Pinterest or the blog I stole the idea from. That's the downside of Pinterest, if you see something you like it is so hard to find again unless you PIN it. So always PIN it!

But basically the necklace consisted of cutting out thousands of little circles and hot glueing them to felt

I am so glad I discovered this great new site!

Kelsey and I are moving out in March and we already have a board full of ideas for decrations, recipes, cleaning and organizing tips, all for the new place!

I'll keep you posted
