my very {p} interesting life

photo credit: www.pinterest.com


I had no idea how boring my life had gotten until i found pinterest.  i didn’t realize how much i had been just surviving and getting by.   this has been the shot in the arm i needed to get back to creating.  we have had so much fun with this.  the first big push came with back to school.  my youngest daughter had this idea that if she gifted her new teacher, she would be able to sail through 2nd grade…..so she decided to peruse the back to school teacher gifts….and we found one:)

we will have to wait awhile to get the results on this:)

the next thing on the schedule was changing rooms around….well, actually, it was changing kids from the rooms they were in….we have had kids move in and move out this summer, so we had rooms that needed occupying and redecorating…..so on to pinterest we go….we found this really cute idea for decorating on a non existent  tight budget.  it worked!

next…as you have figured out by now…i like to cook!  i love recipes.  i love to try the ones that sound like they actually may be liked here in my home with all these picky eaters food critics.  i have found some YUMMY things on here. there will be recipes coming!

what i have found through pinterest is that my desire to create and be creative has come back with a vengeance.  i have found a great place to feed that motivation that many times lags behind the push of everyday life.

i love pinterest.  i found this ‘definition’ of it…and while it would be easy to waste a lot of time, i do think its like everything else….take the good, throw out the bad…..

are you a member to pinterest?  how are you using it?  have you tried anything?  what has been your most successful or favorite venture?

I’d love to hear what your experience has been with it!

What is on the wall?

I am so sorry I didn’t say! I had a friend tell me what it was right off like I was a goose for thinking she couldn’t tell :) It is scrap book papers! I bought a pad of 12×12 papers and glued them on the wall. I also matted 4 of them on 12×12 canvasses to put on the opposite wall. Hope that helps 😉

Hey Ginny,
I’m with you on the love for Pinterest, have been telling everyone about it. I just got into it last week and it’s given me so much motivation. I’ve cleaned out closets and drawers and got rid of old clothes because I have so many new ideas on how to rearrange and decorate my house. Can’t wait to get into the recipes and with the holidays coming so many great craft and gift ideas too.

Keep on pinning:-)

A great idea for decorating a wall is to use wallpaper paste and colored sheets of tissue paper. Glue them on the wall, overlap them. It has a great look, its cheap and when you are tired of it, just wash the wall with warm water. The paste and the tissue come right off.
