I LOVE PINTEREST!!
Since discovering pinterest, I have become slightly obsessed! And Yes, I downloaded the iPhone app so that I can have pinterest all the time. I know its a problem! However, I have created such awesome projects from ideas off pinterest.
My first creations were sheet music Christmas trees. I love these things. I inherited my grandparent's piano when they moved, so I knew these would look so cute on there during the holidays. It was a pretty easy project to start with. You start with a Styrofoam cone. Cut sheet music in 1.5" strips. (I used scrap book paper that looked like sheet music). Then cut 1" fringes, curl, and glue the strip to the cone. Start at the bottom and continue up until the cone is complete.

My next project were Diaper Motorcycles - Sweetaprils Blog. This idea started because so many of my co-workers were pregnant with their second baby. Therefore, they didn't need the typical stuff they needed practical things. What better way to give practical than turning all the goodies into little motorcycles.
You need: 36 size 1 diapers, 2 receiving blankets, 1 stuffed animal, 1 connect ring or teething ring, 1 bottle or aspirator, 1 pair of socks, a wash cloth, a matching ribbon, and stick pins. Its a little detailed after that, so here is the link is above what what to do from here. After making 2 of these, I had a friend having twins. I wanted to be more creative than just making two motorcycles, so I made one with a side-car. This one was a little tricky, but turned out really cute!

I don't have a link for this one because I made it up, so if you want directions just message me.
I definitely recreated this outfit for thanksgiving last year! I already had a navy sweater dress and boots, so all I needed were the tights. I don't have any pics, but it turned out soo cute.
My most recent projects have all been for my Easter dinner. (I will share those in the Easter post).
But here is a peak.
There are so many projects that I am still waiting to do! Whoever invited this website, has tripled the sales at all craft stores and grocery stores. This trend isn't going anywhere, so embrace the Pinterest and ENJOY!
