Prepare to be "Pin"spired!

Have you discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest?  If not, you must check it out....warning:  highly addictive!  If you haven't heard about it, it is an online bulletin board type network, where you can "pin" things on your board, as well as look at other people's "pins."  It sounds kind of weird at first, but you'll get what I mean when you visit.  In order to be part of the community and start pinning, you either have to request an invite, or be invited by a friend. 
I like to think of it as a visual filing cabinet.  So many times you run across a great recipe, or a super crafting idea, and then later when you want to use it, you can't find it.  Well, now with all of my pinboards neatly categorized, I can pull up those items in a few clicks.
It's also a wonderful source of inspiration.  So many projects and ideas!  It's like Martha Stewart on crack!  lol
Last week I accomplished an amazing feat:  I made not only one, but two projects I found on pinterest!  Happy dance!  Check out my pics, and then head over to pinterest (but don't say I didn't warn you!)
