Love it, love it! If you’re on Pinterest, you know what I mean. If you’re not, sign up-you’re gonna love it! No more tearing ideas out of magazines and filing them away in your idea book-it’s all in one place online! (Who am I kidding, I’ll still do that. I’m old fashion like that.)

Jack and I did our first Pinterest project today, and it was so fun! I know you all have seen this one, but we tweaked it a bit. I hot glued the crayons to a shoe box top because I didn’t want them on my final canvas, and after seeing that blow drying the crayons was taking a bit (and Jack was loosing interest), Mark suggested I put it in the oven under the broiler. Brilliant! If I did it again, I’d move the crayons up a bit (on the shoe box top) so I don’t have that blank space on the bottom (which was the top during the process). What a fun project-and cheap piece of homemade art!image I have so many fun things ‘pinned’ and I know all of you that I follow do too! Let’s have a Pinterest day. We’ll bring food from recipes we’ve pinned and make some of the fun ideas we’ve been inspired by-we could start with Halloween?!?! Who’s in?

SO cute!! I need to start following you... and if I can start doing it on a regular basis I'll find some fun projects to do. I need to decorate more for Halloween now that the kids really get into it. I haven't seen this one that you did, but it's a great idea - I need some fun artwork for their playroom and this is perfect!!
