Pinterest Addiction

If you have noticed, I haven't been blogging much. I know, you're totally surprised, right? ;) I have been doing a lot of Pinterest searching, pinning, and recently, projects! Here is one.

Here is the pin where I got the idea (click pic for link to blog):

And here is my version for Vera's room:

What do you think? I love it!

Club Project: Are you with me?

Have you ever fantasized about getting big projects done around the house but you just can't seem to find the time/energy/help to do it? I know I have. Here is an idea I saw on Pinterest and I want to get one going here in Huron!

The blog Jilly and Mia shared a great idea about a group they have called Club Project. Here is some info from their site.

"Made up of 6 handy girls, we take turns spending all day at one of our homes conquering things like updating cabinets, reupholstering sofas, wallpapering dining rooms, decorating niches, tiling back splashes, and refurbishing furniture.
Here's how it works.

Every sixth months, each member gets to choose a day that's convenient for her
(it's usually a Friday) and from 8am-4pm she has
a team of design assistants at her service.
The hostess is in charge of beverages, lunch (we break for 30 minutes at noon) and rounding up all the tools/equipment we'll need for the job. If one person can't make it, it's up to them to pay back the hours on their own time."

Love it? I know I do! I'm thinking that we could also alternate where one of the ladies watches the kids (if members happen to have them) each time so that we don't have to worry about childcare. Perhaps we could use our church for the person doing childcare so they didn't have to get their own house all messy.

Here are some ideas I have:
-Organizing/decorating/designing my craft space
-Mural in Vera's room
-Painting my clawfoot tub
-Spring cleaning

What do you guys think? Any takers?

Pinterest Stole My Blogspiration

Wondering where I've been? Well, these days, I find that most of my free time is going to Pinterest and while it is a total time sucker, I also get amazing ideas that save us money and make life with a toddler a lot easier. SO... if you want to join me on Pinterest I would love it! :)
