Don't worry, I'm not into eating sofa cushions or talking with a puppet. There are two things I'm addicted to lately...well...two that I'll fess up to...neither of which are illegal.

The first is one is all Jamie Kirk's fault. She gave me my first hit and now I can't quit. Pinterest is so wonderful! Several people have asked me about the site so I'm here to give you the low down.

Remember life before the internet? (If you don't then I'm questioning our friendship.) If you saw something in a magazine that tickled your fancy you'd tear it out and pin it to an inspiration board. The geniuses over at Pinterest created an online version of this idea. You can post anything you find online or you can browse through thousands upon thousands of other people's pins. (Hold on folks, do we have a new meaning for OPP? LOVE IT! If you don't know what I'm talking about then I'm rethinking our friendship yet again.) Anyway, you can use the boards to get ideas for decorating, holidays, recipes, wedding or event planning, photography, etc.

I've found the fabric for my bedroom and several decorating/organizing ideas. Here are a few of the projects I plan on tackling with my own twists. Fingers are crossed for success and NOT misadventure.
  • Sling book shelf (shortened to the width of my nightstand, hung above it, and made with some of the fabric from my previous post)
  • Canvas pictures (with pictures of my lil nephew, Grant, and niece, Sahari, of course)
  • Spice jars (I'm definitely putting my own money saving twist on this project)

  • Chalkboard tray (picked my lil gem up at Goodwill for $2.25!)
I have many more things bookmarked. As usual, I'll post pics as I go. These are just the four I've got in the works to attempt in the coming weeks. Of my almost 1400 pins, I'm sure I'll try a handful. Yes, 1400. Addicted. Completely. But if it's for the good cause of helping fuel my creative inspiration is it a bad thing? Or is that just denial?

Oh, I haven't forgotten I mentioned I had two addictions. The other is trashy reality tv. I watch Big Brother, Jersey Shore, Flipping Out, and all the Housewives just to name a few. Somehow, watching Snooki face plant in the sand makes me feel better about my own life. Don't judge. I multitask by"pinning" while I'm watching my trash filled DVR. So, feel free to grab your remote, turn on Bravo, and hit up Pinterest.

PS: If you'd like an invite just shoot me an email or leave a comment with your email address and I'll send you an invitation. (Does that make me a dealer?)
