My New Obsession

I am a creator (not the Creator, just a creator), I like to create and invent things, thus the Dapper Snappers kids belts, and I found a site that totally feeds my need for creativity. Have you hear of it? It’s a little site called Pinterest.

In case you haven’t heard of it, it’s really one of the coolest sites out there. It’s basically an online pin board. Other individuals “pin” things that they like and you can “pin” things that you like. For example, say you do a really cool craft at home that you want to share, or you come across a delicious recipe that you found online, you can pin it. That way you can share your idea or your find with everyone else.

The coolest part? They are all sharing their ideas, crafts, recipes, humor, and so on and so forth with you!

Here’s one idea I found that I know my kids will LOVE. Light Sticks in the bathtub for a change from the standard bath. How cool is this?

And how about this one? A cute little take on a homemade candy jar.

There are also some really handy ideas for home decorating. I came across this one for how to layout photos for your wall and thought, “Now, why didn’t I think of that?”

I know those are all artsy craftsy types of things, but there are also tons of practical tips too. Did you know that you can remove soap buildup from glass shower doors by sprinkling a few drops of water onto a used fabric-softener sheet and scrubbing? For a quick and efficient spot remover mix one part Dawn dish washing liquid with two parts hydrogen peroxide; pour or spray it directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC.

Needless to say, I can spend hours on this site just scrolling through all of the pins. There are so many categories and there are constantly new pins. It never ends! I feel like I have been sucked into a black hole of creativity and there is no way out and really, I’m ok with that because this kind of like my heaven.

Happy “pinning” to you!
