Things I’d Love to Make, But Probably Never Will

Does it seem as though the whole world has fallen deeply, madly in love… with Pinterest?
I love it too. Sometimes just looking at all of those bright, shiny ideas of what I could cook, organize, create or decorate just fills my little heart with glee.

[big happy sigh]

When I was a teenager, I learned some pretty wise words of uh… wisdom from Poison’s Brett Michaels. Sing it Brett!
Every rose has its thorn,
Just like every night has its dawn,
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song…
Every rose has it’s thorn.
Yeah it does.

Pinterest’s thorn is this:
Sometimes, just pinning makes me feel creative enough.
It’s rare that any of those wonderful ideas ever live outside my pin-board.
Let’s remedy that, shall we?
I’ve spent the evening combing Pinterest for ideas of Valentine’s crafts to do with Newt. My only criteria was that it be something simple to create and inexpensive. There was no shortage of ideas:

Newt and I will recreate one of these crafts this week and report back next Monday. Here’s the really fun and exciting part: You get to pick which one!
Disclaimer: The previous statement is likely false. You may find this idea neither fun or exciting. Humor me, would you?
Leave your pick in the comments.

    Oh man! We have to pick just ONE?!? Okay, okay, I pick the fluffy red wreath! :)

  2. Kelly Cook says:

    Since I have a 6 year old boy, we’d choose the first one, if only I had a heart stamp that big.

    I know what you mean about Pinterest. I just signed up last week and I’m hooked and feeling slightly inadequate simultaneously. But I do love to look!

  4. Rebecca says:

    The first one! Heart garland.

  5. Christina Barth says:

    The pillow with the hearts on it!

    I will NOT go to Pinterest. I won’t, I won’t, I won’t. You can’t make me. You can’t cajole me. I have been avoiding it at all costs. I won’t get sucked in. Nope. I refuse. Please don’t temp me.
    Ok, which one….. the garland because it’s something I would do so I’d like to see how yours comes out. But, I’d really love to see that ruffle shirt!

  7. Momofthree says:

    I would probably pick the first one – the heart garland or the knotted heart ‘wreath’

    I can so relate with you about the Pinterest thing. I’m so hooked to it. Plus, I’ve also been thinking quite a lot like you, ‘just seeing it makes me feel creative’. So, it was actually a blessing that I stumbled upon this site. Because the projects the you planned to do where absolutely adorable I think I’m going to try and do the ruffle skirt. Thanks for posting! Love it!
