This week I thought I’d link up with Michelle at The Vintage Apple for her “Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday”. I’m a few days late due to the flu and strep which have taken over my family for the past few days, but this morning I am feeling well enough to pick up my pinterest “habit” again and share some of my favs with y’all.
I love pinterest!!! From the minute my friend Brittany told me about it, I knew it was the site I’ve always dreamed of! Millions and millions of amazing ideas and photos to pin (hoard) to my heart’s content and spend hours getting my creative juices flowing over. Who could ask for more? Now I can catalog everything lovely or cool or just plain quirky that I find on the internet. The problem is I have pinning ADHD – I am hyper with excitement and can’t keep my attention focused on one theme at a time because something else catches my eye every 30 seconds and takes me in a new direction. Oh if I could just make a career of pinning I think I could spend 8 hours a day doing it!
I love this ‘definition’ of pinterest that’s floating around in cyberspace!
This week I’ve decided to try and squelch the ADHD a bit and share some of my pins focused on Valentine’s Day since we have one more week to figure out our kids’ valentines and what we’ll be doing for hubbies and the special people in our lives and such. Anywho… Here are some of my fav ideas!
When I think of cookies and milk I can hardly think of anything cuter than this!
I love the marshmallow pops because they are so much quicker than cake pops and harder to mess up. I’m always in a hurry…
I L.O.V.E. pinwheels! I think they are so cute! Here I pinned some that are a little more sophisticated that you can make to top a box for a special someone. How about on top of a box with a luscious chocolate dipped strawberry inside or some homemade confection? Or love coupons? Or use more colorful paper for your kids and put some fun treats inside.
I love these felt fortune cookies! A couple of years ago I tried to make real fortune cookies for my husband and it was a big fail! I couldn’t get it right! But I think I can get felt right. They look so easy to make.
I’ve always wanted to know how to make scratch off stuff. Weird I know, but it feels a bit like the lottery and I love the suspense of guessing what’s under there!
I think these are so clever! I love the idea of giving something that’s not candy. Maybe it’s just the dietitian in me, but I’m always looking for ways to make gifts that my kids can give that are not candy but still just as fun for other kids to get.
I found these little cuties on pinterest and love them! I love using paint chips for all kinds of things. Maybe it’s my obsession with color. (I have a whole pinterest board of colors and color combos I love.) Just tape these on a piece of paper and run them through the printer and Voila! you have quick, easy, and FREE valentines cards.
I can’t get enough of these funny valentines. Sooo cute!!! And, you can buy the pdf printable for this for just a few bucks here.
Maybe I just love the old school song lyrics or that we have about a million army guys laying around my house I’d like to give away, but I think these are hilarious! This blogger says here daughter says she should’ve quoted Bruno Mars “I’d catch a grenade for ya” instead of “old” songs. Either way – easy, inexpensive, and fast to make!
I think these Love Bug valentines are super cute. I have two little boys who are into spiders and all things creepy and crawly so this is right up their alley. Danyelle and Dandee Designs offers a free printable and all you have to do is visit the dollar store and pick up a few icky bugs to attach. Seriously, so cute!
