Hiya peeps,

Lest you think all I've been doing is sitting on my generous arse sucking down Reese's milkshakes ... which I have ... I managed to complete a few projects from Pinterestland. Behold!

The Pinspiration - It's a Pop-up!

The Pincreation

This is mom's birthday card. I used an index card for the base (all I had), colored it with crayons (again, all I had), printed out a Paris skyline, made some fake balloons (with some random wire and more index cards) and added blingage. Because everything is better with blingage.

Except certain body parts ... but that's a whole nother maminal.

The Pinspiration - Lace Mania

The Pincreation

I hand-stitched some scraps of lace to this maternity tank for a new look. It's super cute on, but you'll just have to take my word for it because I didn't feel like taking a picture of my bulky self.

More Lace Mania (or Curtain Mania?)

The Pincreation

I found a curtain with embellishments, cut it up, and sewed the resulting bits and pieces onto some maternity shorts. Actually, Mom sewed it.

Thanks, Mom.

Sorry for the crappy pic. Again, these are really cute on, but sticking a picture of my legs up there next to the Pinspiration would just be sad.

So, there you have it! Proof that I'm actually doing something beside eating bon bons (and Twinkies and Reese's) and sobbing over A Baby Story (and chasing a toddler and trying to keep up with the housework). I've actually completed three whole projects from Pinterestland!

Somebody get me a medal.

Or a milkshake.

P.S. I'm gonna be really glad when my mind doesn't automatically reset to the milkshake channel. all. the. time.

P.P.S (or P.S.S?) You can see the rest of the Pinterest projects I'm going to get around to someday here.
Pin It!


  1. I love these embellishments so much! You are so clever. I'm one of those who PIns but never does any of it i real life!

    1. Thank you! I have about a thousand more pins I'd like to get around to someday. I was so excited I managed to finish three of them!


What say ye?
