My New Obsession

 Pinterest.  If you don't know what it is yet, look it up.  It's fantastic, and it has the potential to draw you in for HOURS at a time.  I have pinned many craft, sewing and other project ideas along with ideas for the next house we build, funny quotes and birthday party ideas.  I am trying my best to make sure I actually DO some of the things I pin instead of wasting my time on absolutely nothing.
My first Pinterest project was based on this tute: Pinup Wreath  I decided to spray paint the hoop and the clothespins first (disassemble the clothespins prior to painting) and then I decoupaged decorative paper around the hoop and on the tops of the pins.  Gotta love a practical craft! I've been wanting a good way to display my Christmas cards for years!

 Another great project was this one: felt heart.  It was time consuming, but really easy.  I recommend using full size straight pins, and not just the little applique pins.  I made that mistake to start.  The final product is beautiful.  Loads of impact for a small price tag - less than $10 total.
If you haven't already become obsessed with Pinterest, then you probably have a cleaner house than me!  I'm just glad that I'm making my pins become reality in my home.  I'll be working on some more projects soon!
