My Battle With Addiction

I have a serious addiction. I’m slightly worried for myself. If you’ve never heard of the website pinterest feel free to exit my blog and no longer be my friend. Just kidding, I want everyone to be my friend. But It’s my addiction. I look through everything my friends have pinned, I look through the “everything” tab constantly, and I even go as far to pin at red lights (at least they are red?). Most of my conversations don’t only consist of “So I was reading this blog…” it’s “I was reading this blog that I found on pinterest….” I tell you friends, I need to go to AA for pinners.

But a few good things have come from this fabulous website. I feel like I’ve not only gained another 104 friends, I’m developing those amazing crafty talents that I always knew were deep down in there.  I’ve found soooo many good recipes from pinterest and they have all gotten a “repeat” from Hub. You can check out my amazing web cookbook here.  Aside from good food and cute outfits, they have amazing tutorials. This is where I found my tutorial for my amazing coffee filter wreath (not my giant powdered doughnut). I’ve found some really cute printables from pinterest as well and they are all over my house, I’ve even gone so far as to make my own because of this amazing website.
Now that I’ve got all you non-pinners excited about how great it is, I’ve got one more thing to show you. My current pride and joy, this amazing ruffle tree skirt. The second I laid eyes on this tutorial I knew this was a project that I could conquer. That’s just what I did. I had a few minor set backs… like a dead car battery when I went to leave for the fabric store, and then a hungry hub after I finally got there, and once I started I ran out of glue sticks. The tutorial that I followed was really good, so I’ll just direct to it here. Pretty great huh? Instead of canvas, or painter’s drop cloth, I used white denim that I found at a fabric store that was going out of business. I imagine that the painters canvas would be cheaper than denim though.
What is the most crazy about these pictures is that they don’t show just how big it really is. It is HUGE! But it’s ok, because I LOVE it!

But now I’m off to make these lovely sugar balls, and maybe to pin a few more things. I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t pin like 10 things in between writing this, and editing, and looking at pictures.

If you see anything on pinterest that you think I’ve missed and I would like, please tag me in your repinning! Seriously, I’m obsessed.

One of THOSE Days

I need some Kettle corn

and muddie buddies

some Lemon Bars sound really good

or the bread pudding that Paige and I made at cooking class….. oh yummy

and that yummy chex mix gooey stuff that people give at Christmas time with the coconut in it. What’s that even called?

and I want my hair to look like this alllllllllll the time, but it hurts my eyes to look that far to the side for that long

and I’m in desperate need of everything found here

So who’s going to join me for a night of baking any and everything while watching trashy TV shows like Teen Mom, Sister Wives, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

If your tummy isn’t growling you are not invited… ok well maybe.

It’s really been one of those days, apparently.
