Pinterest Addiction

I love being crafty and creative...the problem is I lack the creative gene. Luckily, I'm really great at searching the internet and stealing other peoples ideas and putting them together to make something that works for me. My favorites bar is overflowing with bookmarks for all kinds of discoveries I have found, but the downside is when I get a new computer or mine crashes all those wonderful sites disappear. is the greatest solution to that problem, but also rocks in so many other ways!! It is basically a website that lets you categorize and "pin" all of your favorites to a "board", along with an image and description to go with the link. What is even greater is that you can do a search on the website and it will bring back only items that other people thought were cool enough to pin to their board, giving you the best stuff on the internet! (And you can follow people who have similar tastes as you, so when they find new stuff it lets you know)

Saying I'm addicted is kind of an understatement. I have stayed up past 2am every night for the past 3 days and already have 213 links pinned...but what is the fun in having these genius ideas if I don't share a few?? Here are some of my favorite finds so far, along with their links.

Sugar Cookie Bowls

would be adorable to serve fruit, pudding, or ice cream in

Glow Stick Lanterns

cut open a glow stick and pour contents into jar; would be so cool for Halloween or evening party

Cupcake Carrier
cut "x" into the bottom of clothing gift boxes

Sifted Flour Grass Decorating
Carson would LOVE this, can work on sidewalk too

Stair Storage
I don't even have stairs, but if we ever get a house with them I want this!

Pom-Pom DIY
These would be gorgeous for a party or shower

Valentine Exchange Idea
"You Rock" printable to attach to Pop Rocks candy

The website says you they will put you on a waiting list when registering. Being impatient, I googled and found this link that lets you join without having to wait. By the way, it's free. :)

(If you are my personal friend/family, please don't look under "gifts" b/c you might find future presents to you! I wish there was a way to make categories not public...)
