Oh Pinterest, how I love you! January 31, 2012

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I love to pin delicious looking recipes, practical (and some not-so-practical) organization/storage ideas, fun crafts, and lots of other good stuff.  I was showing Pinterest to my hubs the other  night (who called it Pee-Interest before I educated him on the awesomeness of Pinterest) and after a few minutes he looked at the screen and said, “OK, but once you’ve done this to it, then what”.  Then what?  I was baffled!  Had he not noticed all the awesome and amazing things I’ve been doing to the house lately?  Has he not tasted the yummy meals I’ve been cooking???  So I ran through a few of the things I’ve done lately that I can say are all because of Pinterest…

A decoupaged key holder…I paid $1.47 for the wood, and $1.99 for the mod podge which I’m also using for other projects.  I had the paper and the hooks at home…and it matches perfectly with the “Family” plaque I bought at the Target dollar store a while ago and could never find the perfect spot for.


Delicious Chicken Taco Soup that I made for dinner…super duper easy and SO yummy!  This is the leftovers that we’ll have Thursday night over taco chips (or hash browns in my hubs case).





Easy Peasy cleaning product organization.  Bought an over-the-door shoe organizer at Wal Mart for about $5.50.  Hung it on the door to my larger pantry and put our cleaning products in it.  Cleared up SO much space under my kitchen sink, and makes it so much easier to find what I need.


Decoupaged letters that will go in my daughters bedroom.  They were $1.99 each at Hobby Lobby, and on sale for 40% off when I purchased them. I had the decorative papers in my scrapbooking supplies, just traced, cut, mod podged and POOF…adorable wall decor!

I spent about 2 hours today on the couch planning my daughters 2nd Birthday Party, which will be this Saturday.  Almost every idea for food/decorations has come from Pinterest.  Seriously, I dream that someday one of my ideas or items will be up there because someone saw it and said “Hey, this is awesome, I want everyone else to know about it!”  If you aren’t on Pinterest, get on there.  Now.  Seriously…it’s wonderful.

Those of you that follow me on Facebook (So-Sew-Cute) and Twitter (@lightseyj) know that we have been moving and life has been IN-SANE lately. Well, it’s not totally back to normal, but last night we actually slept in the new house! It felt so great to be back in our own beds and wake up in our own house. I still have a lot of work to do, but this will make life much easier. Sometimes, it’s the little things in life!

So tell me, what are you smiling about and celebrating today?
