"Pins" to Admire and Inspire

Not too long ago, I confessed to you that I am a Pinterest Addict, with no hopes (or desire) for recovery. With that revelation,  I was not-so-secretly-pleased to see that many of you have also succumbed to the lure of Pinterest, with its oodles of eye candy inspiration.

I thought it might be fun today to enable our little Pinning Problem and share some of my favorite recent pins from a few of my Favorite boards on my Pinterest Profile.

  1. OMGoodness...probably a good thing I have not gotten on pinterest yet. I would retreat to my office and never come out! Love the OCD poster...hubby says that is sooo me. Might have to have that for my office! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Soooooo many people have told me about pinterest. I have about 5 or 6 refferals/invites sitting in my inbox to join from friends & they're always posting things to my facebook wall that they found on there. I've been resisting until I get some of my blog redesign & shop makeover/update done. I looooove the picture frame pin & the camera lighting cheat sheet and those pretzel bites look soooo yummy! Thanks for sharing, I know I need to join soon. :-)

  3. I'm a new addict too!! I just can't get away from it! My project to-do list is just growing by the minute on there!

  4. Oh, Amanda! I love Pinterest too! Too many neat-o things! Like this hair-do,

    or this supr cute outfit . How do they make these on polyvore anyway?

    OR there's all these fabulous decorating ideas like this one for hallowwen

    It is an addiction, to be sure!

  5. I'm addicted too! Having to limit myself - but, you have really pinned some great ones. Going to pin a few of yours too. I shared a post with my fall decor pins on my blog today. Happy pinning!

  6. I cannot wait to try this artichoke bread! Looks like Heaven!

    I've tried so many recipes I found on Pinterest, and they have all been fabulous! Thanks for sharing the circle punch collage; I haven't seen that one!


  7. hehe.... that last quote cracks me up. And that circle punch art is so darn cute. Love seeing your favorites.

  8. I love pinterest! I'm pretty sure I have a few of those same pins too:) One of my newest favorites is this adorable polka dot cake:

  9. I love Pinterest and you are right it can become addicting. This mobil is one thing I am wanting to DIY for my nursery.

  10. Thanks Amanda...I had to pin the OCD and the frame layouts! Thanks again for sharing =)

  11. Oh nice!! Those gift ideas will come in handy for the holidays!!! My fave as of late... I really want to make some etched casserole dishes!

  12. I am really trying to get in to Pinterest more. It is like getting caught in a web surfing wormhole though. One fun things leads to another.

    Amazing finds though!

    I'm sick today and I might have to entertain myself with some Pinterest surfing!

  13. Staying away. . . staying away. . . I can't afford another addiction in my life right now! I'm on Pinterest, but I've pinned only a few things. I think, though, that I need to peruse your boards and re-pin some things. Like that CDO quotation--too funny!!

  14. I came across this really cute idea the other day. Such a cute way to sort of hide your thermostat in a pretty way. Mine is on a wall that I have been wanted to put other picture frames up anyway, so I would love to put a frame over my thermostat too.

    Thanks for sharing your recent favorite pins. I'm following you now on Pinterest. Can't wait to check it all out. :)

  15. frame hanging guide = awesome and the CDO quote is hilarious!

  16. My name is Kerry and I am addicted to Pinterest.

  17. Oh, I LOVE it too!! The one I picked for my favorite this week was a felt Mr. and Mrs. Potato head but the blog has been moved so the link didn't work. :( Oh, well.
    My favorite things to pin are kid's art lessons. They are so fun!
    So inspiring!!

  18. thanks for sharing..nice to read your post

  19. Thanks for sharing the photo hanging ideas. They are so useful. Pinning it.

  20. I need to stay off pinterest! It takes over my day! :) But since you asked....I pinned this awesome door (that I saw on inspired room) this morning...I have no clue if I got the url right? Hopefully it opens! Thanks for sharing & insisting that I visit pinterst :)

  21. I love Pinterest! I'm going to take a closer look at the pins you featured and those in the comments this weekend when I have some free time. It's amazing what you can find on Pinterest when you start looking around.


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
