pinterest: if you haven't heard of it - well then you have way too much time on your hands. pinterest is the next best thing to wasting time since facebook. no really. 

i discovered pinterest about two months ago and its pretty much the best thing. ever. i one day i stumbled upon it and decided to look for inspiration for DIY wall calendars. and then photography inspiration. and then living room curtains. and then....pretty much anything i can daydream about. and if you're a bride to be - forget all of the wedding blogs like,, or - why? bc all of those inspiration photos all can be found on pinterest.

so what is pinterest? to put as simply as possible...pinterest is like a filtered google image search - but it only brings up the best images - none of that junk from google where you maybe find two or three images that actually interest you after getting all the way to page 10 of your search. why? well everyone on pinterest is super creative. and there really isn't any "facebook" like pictures that are from joe smith's canon point-and-shoot. 

personally i love it - especially since i like to think of myself as crafty and it gives me so many ideas on how to decorate our new house (once we sell the old one of course) and i already have a few projects i have started 

like this one (wall calendar painted with chalk paint)

or this one (going to restore antique dresser for craig's list in this color for a media console)

or this one (keep the mantle but change out for the holidays/seasons)

and the best part? you don't even have to know what you're looking for - just start following some people and they will do the work for you. why? because their "pins" show up on your "feed"

one more thing - you need an invite to start - so if you want to be a member leave a comment below and i can send you an invite or you can request one from the site. enjoy! :)
