I have an addiction to Pinterest

So what I like bulletin boards.

So I really like bulletin boards. I have two in my office, a couple in my bedroom and if I wasn't a renter there would probably be more. And came along this thing called Pinterest. I've talked about it before, but the skinny is that is it a virtual pin board in which you pin ideas or pictures to categorized boards. You can also look through other people's boards and repin the items they have found.

Not only is it an amazing way to get creative inspiration, items for supper and is helping me plan my wedding, but the best part is when you pin something you can go back to the pin and click on the link in the upper right hand corner.

Turquoise necklace found here 

That will then take you back to the website or blog that the item was originally found on. Genius. No more bookmarking a million websites. 

In the next couple weeks I thought I would start to feature some of my favorite pins from my favorite board. Let's start with Burlap! The Boy and I are using Burlap as one of our wedding colors, so I have been finding all kinds of goodies. 

This dry erase board is really cute. 

You'll find all kinds of tutorials and DIY projects on Pinterest.

Of course I would love the burlap bulletin board.

Would be so easy to make. Gotta have a touch of turquoise in there. 

Way out of my budget, but definitely on my dream wish list.
Are you on Pinterst? If so let me know. 


  1. You are not alone, lol! I've DIY-d several projects I found on there.! Here is my link!

  2. I want so bad to get in on the fun, but my invite never comes through! I've been waiting like 2 months. Any suggestions? I still check out other peoples pin boards.

  3. Hannah - find me email address under my About Me and I'll send you an invite. You'll get on a lot faster that way.
