In this case I’m the monkey. So more like: Mommy see, Mommy do.
I am guilty of having an addiction to Pintrest. I have an account, I look at pins, I even follow a bunch of friends, I am a pin for goodness sake! However, I do not pin anything. It is strange, I don’t have a good reason. My only logic is that it is a huge commitment. Whatever.
But that does not stop me from attempting awesome crafty projects inspired by pins. I have tried a couple things. Take a look:
Ahhh… the lima bean wreath. I was actually pinned with this one. A complete stranger liked it enough to pin me to her Pintrest board and I got like 15 comments, 67 likes and 71 re-pins. And that is all. That is the extent of my fame.
In a side note: I have already started to re-vamp this bee-ach. I ripped all the brown and blue paper off of the C and am in the process of spraying the wreath white. It did not weather well. Needs a little love. I am going to doll it up for Christmas. Bet’cha can’t wait.

This one is on my door right now. I love it and it was so freaking easy. It was time consuming but required zero skill. I would love to make one in every color. That easy.
Speaking of zero skill… these calendars were fun and fast. I got these great frames at the Goodwill (GW, G-dub) for three bucks a piece. They were horrid, contained totally 80’s pictures of wagon wheels and watercolor barns, and were hideous colors, but they are solid wood so they had to be bought. And sprayed black. The colorful insides I stole. Go ahead call the Feds. Wal-mart carries Better Homes and Gardens paint. The BHG paint chips have punch out circles in them. I thought that was so cool and used them for the days of the week.
The blue one is in my kitchen and the green I made for my wonderful neighbor. Now we have the appearance of organization. Baby steps.
My handwriting rivals that of a blind three year old, but I guess you can see that.
Don’t laugh. This is made of toilet paper rolls. I got the idea from this site, which I found on… you guessed it: Pintrest. I will eventually spray it white (looks like I’ll have a white day with my TP and my bean wreath) and hang it in my downstairs bathroom. I think it is appropriate.
