You see, it was only natural that we should both become addicted. We are a family of do-it-yourself crafty people who like to make pretty and practical things. Thrifty is also in our blood, and I only half-jokingly say that I married my husband because he brakes for rummage sales. As I mentioned before, we are on a tight budget this year. We also just moved into a new-to-us apartment that is in serious need of some character. My cousin's wife Corinne told me about all kinds of cool stuff on Pinterest and how much she likes it, and I finally decided to take the plunge.
It started with some recipes.
I found some really great knitting projects, like the dinosaurs I made for Theresa.
I then moved on to some gutter shelves,reading nook for the girls.
Most recently, Andy installed these buckets in the girls' closets for more organized toy storage.
My MIL, in comparison, has become a true devotee. Every time I go to her house (which is at least once a week), she hands me something that she has made from scratch from Pinterest. She made some great laundry soap, lotion, caramel, and even some super absorbent training pants for Mayzie. She's pretty crafty like that. I love how into Pinterest she is and how she doesn't actually blame me for enabling her addiction at all.
I have one secret board on Pinterest that I'm saving up for one day soon. I'm planning a trip to Berlin, and when I return, I'm going to chop my hair and donate it to Locks of Love again. Before I go, my big plan is to make the board public and set up a link so that you can vote on which haircut I get. I'll even let you add your own ideas too if you'd like. It will be my hair, inspired by Pinterest.
What do you think? Is that an insanely brave or awesomely fun idea? Would you vote?
