Show and Tell Tuesday - Pinterest Party

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  I get so inspired and excited - and then equally overwhelmed and over it. :)  Occasionally I do have some follow through and, for the most part, I've had some successes.

I will say, that I'm not really a "pinner"... I'm more of a "screen shotter".  I'll see something that looks fun or creative or delicious and I'll screenshot it on my phone instead of pinning it.  It's much less organized, but it seems to work for me.

One of my most fun pinterest-inspired projects was this flag that I made a couple of summers ago.

A few years ago I saw a tutorial for a burlap wreath that looked easy enough and so I gave it my own spin and have had fun coming up with festive wreaths since then...

Lots of my favorite go-to recipes originated from Pinterest as well.  You can find all of them here...

and recipes that I want to try are here...

I pin a lot of fun ideas to do with my kids at home...

... and my kids at school.

I can't wait to see your Pinterest success stories!


  1. I loved this week's show and tell!! Pinterest is my favorite! xoxo

  2. Um....I don't think we're Pinterest friends!!! I'll change that today. ;)

  3. Your American flag is amazing!! Love your wreaths too!! :)

  4. I love that you have a tried and true recipe board. I am going to have to follow that! I am always afraid to try recipes on Pinterest because I never know exactly how they are going to come out.

    Also how did you embed your boards?! I have been trying since last night and can't get mine to embed. It shows up in preview and disappears when I try to save. ARG. Oh well.

    1. Oh no!!! When I clicked on the board I clicked on the button with the three dots (next to the edit board button). Then I selected "make a widget" and just copied that code into my post. Hope that helps!!!

    2. Thanks Andrea! That's what I did, and it only works in preview. For some reason when I save it disappears. Arg! Oh well!

  5. I loved this topic! Thanks so much for hosting..so much fun :)

  6. Oh my gosh that striped ribbon on your wreath, amazing! Where do you find all that fantastic ribbon? I did a burlap wreath for my pin today. Glad you had this, because that wreath never would have gotten made had you not had this prompt. Although I did it wrong and made one of my pins instead of pinning stuff I like, oops!

  7. I love that red, white, and blue wreath! I have zero 4th of July decorations, but I think as of this year, I will at least have one!

  8. Im a screenshot-er too! Having it on my camera roll is just faster to access. You don't want to stifle those creative juices once they start flowing ;)

  9. I was at the Warsaw Carnival that was shown in last nights episode of the bachelor. I would love for you to check out my post!


  10. I'm a total screen shorter, too! All of my favorite recipes are screenshots on my phone! It makes grocery shopping easier! Thanks for hosting this!
