I'm participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge again this year. Today's post is brought to you by the letter P.
Pinterest is one of the websites I visit the most. In fact, since discovering it I don't think I've gone more than a day or two without logging in. Like most people who use Pinterest, I have about a million pins and have only completed a handful of those.
I have dreams that one day at least one room in my house will have most or all of the design and/or decor pins I've got on my "For Our Nest" board. Every year I vow this will be the year that my kids' parties will be up-to-par with some of my party pins. So far I've just managed to make a few crafty things and that's about it. The good news is that I can't think of any that could be eligible for the pinterest fail website. (I call that a win!) I know a lot of what I pin is far out of my budget and skill level, but I pin it anyway b/c I'm a daydreamer and love to think about what it would be like to have that amazing reclaimed wood wall in the bathroom or the beachy/tiki themed backyard oasis.
While I haven't won the lottery or inherited millions from an obscure relative to accomplish anything big, here are a few of the pinterest projects I have actually completed.
|U of O string art project for my father in law's bday|
|Retirement gift for my hubs' high school music|
|Dandelion string art I made to raise money for a trip to Arkansas.|
|A thank you gift I made for my friend who made the Arkansas trip happen.|
I still haven't glued it all down and mailed it b/c I'm a slacker, but it will
happen one day.
|Tie dye technique I used for last 4th of July|
|Stitch costume I made for my oldest daughter last Halloween|
|Probably my favorite completed project. This one is hanging in my|
|This wine glass beach scene is my most recently completed project. |
They sell tiny cocktails on Etsy, so I plan to add a little
Strawberry Daiquiri to it, and possibly some tiny flip flops.
