So last week when I was home with my mom we got to talking about Christy's upcoming shower that I'm planning. I was telling my mom all about how I have dozens of inspiration photos stuck to my Pinterest boards of things I'd like to do/serve/make for the shower. It didn't take me long to figure out that my mom had no idea what Pinterest is. I know I've referred to my Pinterest boards on this blog before...but I guess she just didn't know what I was talking about each time. For those of you who aren't familiar with Pinterest, it's a place to make on-line inspiration boards. When I see something on someone else's blog, or run across a beautiful picture or cool craft idea, I "pin" it to one of my boards. In the old days, I would just cut inspirational things out of magazines (I still do this sometimes), but for the most part, now I just pin it on my Pinterest page. I love that I have all kinds of inspiration boards right at my fingertips. As an added bonus, Pinterest links the photos back to their original source. This helps when I need to go back and look for tutorials and DIY tips. When Pinterest first started, getting an invite to join was kinda like getting invited to the royal wedding: in other words, hard. There were actual waiting lists. These days it's easier, but you still need an invitation. If you'd like an invite, let me know; I'd be happy to send you one.
Anyway, I'd thought it might be fun for you to see what is inspiring me these days. I picked one photo from each of my boards to share with you. The picture above is from my "Time to Redecorate" board, and shows what we're planning on doing to our master bedroom. I'm kind of giddy about the window seat. I've always wanted one!
This is from my "I Love Mail" board:
This gorgeous arrangement posted on my "Wedding Shower Magic" board has me thinking pastels:
I want to make a variation of this project, pinned on my "Crafty Goodness" board, which shows all the places John and I have lived since we got married:
Next summer I want to make dill pickles, too. Pinned to my "Digging in the Dirt" board:
Feel free to follow all of my Pinterest boards. I have 945 other pictures for you to look through (Yes, I know; that's a whole big bunch of inspiration).
Have a fabulous day!
