I have decided to start a new series here on my blog called "Pinterest Playtime." I guess some one will let me know soon enough if I can't use the word Pinterest but until then, I am going for it :)
First a little news. I am sad to say that I was not accepted for a new term as a design team member for Getting Cricky with K. Andrew. It seems my life is too busy and I just could not post enough to be a consistent contributor to her team. I am totally OK with that. That really is fine. I have to admit as I was awaiting the news to find out if I had made the team, I kept thinking to myself, "If I don't make it, that is ok, that will be less to have to get done with my already very busy life." But to my surprise, when I got the dreaded "rejection" email, tears poured down my face and sadness really set in. I had to really explore why I had taken the news so hard. It was one more thing that had happened in recent weeks that took me to God to ask why? I know it may not seem like a big deal to most people, and I thought it wouldn't be to me, but it was. As I prayed over this and other issues I realized that feeding my creative soul is important. Not just therapy but really important. If feels good to create, even if under pressures of deadlines, it feels really, really good. It's a big part of who I am and I NEED to be creative. So when I lose the opportunity to share my passion and creativity, it hurt. I loved the design team girls and Kristal. They are simply wonderful, so...no more tears, I am over it and I will reapply again this summer. Thanks Kristal for the opportunity you gave me to design for you. Absolutely no hard feelings, I can't wait to see what the new DT creates :)
OK enough of that, I just had to share with you because I knew my blogger buddies would understand. Well, so here I am. Working to refocus on the important things, like being involved at church, being a good mother, a good wife and feeding my soul. So look for some changes in my blog and I will share some big changes in my life, coming soon!
On to the fun stuff! Pinterest Playtime. This will be a segment to share with you the creations that I have made via inspiration or "pinspiration" that I have pinned from Pinterest. In all cases I will make every effort to give credit to the originator of the project, not necessarily the pinner I pinned it from, although I am now making it a practice to visit the site the pin came from and pinning it from the original source. I am told that is good Pinterest etiquette.
I pinned this project onto my "Get Organized" board and finished the project in only an hour!!!
Stickles organization...I discovered in the project that I have 64 bottles. Come on~enough already :) Not really!!! One can never have enough Stickles, right?
I purchased this sheet of metal from Hobby Lobby for 8.99. The pinner suggested and showed a cookie sheet which would work fine but I like the way this is so flat and just looks like part of my shelving.
Thanks you to http://wecanbeaoriginal.com/blog/ for posting this idea. This link was also in the post but I never saw it on this blog but want to give credit any way. http://smbogan.typepad.com/chickenscratch/
My plan is to later have Pinterest Playtime so that you can link up your projects and link back to mine and that way we all get more visitors to our blogs! Sound like a good idea?? I would love to hear your input. Next time I will show you how I organize my Copic Markers.
