A slight obsession

30 Dec

Y’all.

Pinterest.

It’s insane, right? I’m sure I can’t stay away for more than a day.  And, although it is filled with brilliant, beautiful ideas, it sometimes seems empty to me.

Like, when I’m done with a pinning session, I expect to see everything I just pinned magically appear in my house.

But, it just never does.

Apparently, you have to actually make or buy those things in order for them to appear.

In an effort to negate this empty feeling, we (me, my mom, and my sister) had a Pinterest party.  We picked a project and promised to complete it one afternoon together.

Mama made a beautiful pearl and twine bracelet (Mama-I need pictures of that!).

Amelia and I were in a Christmas decorating mood and started working on items with which to decorate and wrap.

And so enters one of the greatest inventions of mankind.

Why, hello, pom-pom maker!

Until Pinterest, I never knew that I wanted needed one of these babies.  Just think! You can make garland! flowers! monsters! wreaths! The possibilities are (not quite) literally endless!

Although the pom wreath was to-die-for cute, I quickly realized that pom making is a little time consuming.  And those wreaths had lots of poms.

So I decided to use a few to wrap gifts, and I just adore how it turned out! A few poms, some sweet gingham ribbon, and my Christmas gifts were set!

This little Pinterest party inspired me.  Since then, I’ve created some homemade gifts for coworkers, a fabulous Christmas wreath, and some great prints for our home.  I’ll be sharing those soon!
