Pinterest in Action

So I almost quit Pinterest awhile back. And you may remember an "editorial" or two (cough*rant*cough) in which I dissed Pinterest to the maximum capabilities of my vocabulary. Well, I have sort of changed my tune. No, that's an incorrect statement. I have changed my attitude and I have started using Pinterest for good. I use it as a place to collect my limited loves on the Internet. Sometimes I catch myself browsing Pinterest for the sake of browsing, and I STOP MYSELF almost IMMEDIATELY! I do NOT want to lose myself in the vast basement full of junk drawer items that is Pinterest.

Although, I have noticed the content has vastly improved compared to the conditions in which I originally left it. So, there's that.

Anyhoo, "what is the post really about Lisa?" is something you might be asking yourself at this point. Far be it for me to get so off topic that I can't get back on. But I have been getting on with putting some of my Pinterest pins into action. SEGUE!

I can handle that!

I used a nail instead of a fancy/nice-looking hook. And I found this wire in my junk drawer of a room studio. The entire project maybe took me two minutes to complete. It's not entirely sturdy...but...

This next one is about equally easy, but more time consuming. i.e. you have to wait for the paint to dry.

They look lovely on my revised mantle....but they were only on there for this photo op! HA! I leave them on my dining room table, which I have managed to keep clean for most of the month as per my March goals. Success breeds success...I mean, the rest of those goals are fading fast, but shut up!

And last but not least...

Did you know that a boombox can change the world?

 HA! I only wish that the canvas was BIGGER, but it's all I had on hand at the time. (And it already cost an arm and a leg, so I can only imagine what the super big ones would set me back. Yeesh!)

Even Dude helped me out with that ampersand. And the K? Inspired by that little Polyvore set I posted the other day!

Now if only I could figure out how and where to hang them...geeze Lisa. That's just wrong.

I am very super proud of myself for actually accomplishing some of my Pins! I have felt very inspired to DO STUFF lately. I thank the change of season and that extra hour of usable sunshine we've been getting! I also made a skirt, from a pattern! And fancied-up a black cloth grocery bag. I'll post those here as well, since I need a little public pat-on-the-back every now and again.

If you are at ALL interested in following me on Pinterest (if you are so inclined), you can find me here. I'm trying not to be a completely obnoxious "over-pinner", but the jury's still out on that one! And as for my Instagram friends who have already discovered the Insta-Spammer that I am...I apologize.

later loves

p.s. I hope I didn't turn you off from following me on Instagram now! HA! I am a "private user", but that's because the trolls creep me out. I would love to be friends with people who are actually known to me!

    You are rockin' the DIYs, lady! This may just be the kick in the butt I need to follow through on some of my very own pins. (I RARELY use Pinterest. Like, basically never. But I have pinned things in the past, so that's a place to start.)

    1. Pinterest has a "new look" - which makes me want to punch them in the face - so I may not have jumped right back on the bandwagon. But I do like it for keeping all my links in one place. You should do some pinterest-based crafts and then we can chat about them. By the way, I totally went & jumped in a bunch of dirty cold puddles last night and it was awesome!

      The second half of this message makes me SO happy!

  2. Know what I love?
    Know what else I love?
    That script painting!!!! I tried that ( twice now ) and it was a fail both times!!

    1. Well, that "I love your face" lady has already asked that I do one for her, so what's one more?!


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
