I have a terrible habit of gathering ideas and never actually doing anything with those ideas. There we go, I said it! I have carried along with me for years stacks of recipes that I FINALLY have typed up, but STILL not cooked. I have numerous bookmarks in my browser that are fun crafty ideas for baby girl stuff (my daughter is almost 3), beautiful quilts (I barely know how to sew), scrapbook layouts and websites (I've finished about 3 months' worth of my daughter's FIRST YEAR!!). Of course I also have a craft room full of stuff needed to work on any of those things (fabric, paper, Cricut, books, along with thousands of other useless things that I've kept "just in case"). I have accumulated so many things that I just haven't used that I have recently been thinking that I should just get rid of it all. Clear my hard drive of tasty treats yet to be eaten in this house. Clear my craft room of stuff I just haven't used and probably never will. Clear my mind of all the money and time that I've wasted solely because I won't get off my booty to do it.
And then Pinterest came into my life.
Oh dear, dear Pinterest.
A plethora of ideas in one tidy place. It doesn't even take up any room in my computer/house/head! Yet another place to gain from other people's craftiness and genius-ness (yep, it's a word, one that us geniuseseseses use!) by pinning it on a board, never to been seen again. Huzzah!
Then the other day I was thinking (remember, I am a genius, it's what I do best!) that it might be a good idea to (gasp!) actually try some of these ideas! I'm tired of gathering and not acting, but I also don't want to NOT do any of these things I've "pinned." And so I have begun a new journey! I have to say, so far it's been fun! If you'd like, you can join me in it. At some point I think it would be fun for other people to link up to see how they have "Plowed Through Pinterest," but that will have to be much further down the road since I don't have a clue as to how to even get people to start reading this blog.
So there you go...a ridiculously long introduction to what is sure to be a fun journey!
here to find me).
(And yes, I do realize this is a terrible picture, but The Girl woke up from her nap a little earlier than I expected so that's as good as we're gonna get for now!)
