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!

Motorcycle with Sidecar
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.

Egg Tree
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!


  1. Hi, Whitney, I love your motorcycle diaper cake with a sidecar!! Could you send me the instructions on how to make the sidecar?

  2. I would also love instructions on the sidecar! Please and thank you! :)

  3. I would like to have the directions for the motorcycle with side care please :)

    1. has anyone gotten the instructions for the motorcycle with the side car yet?

    2. Instructions for the motorcycle with side car.

      I followed Sweetaprils instructions to make the regular motorcycle.

      The side car itself is a small basket wrapped in a receiving blanket. You make a smaller size wheel the same way to made the larger one. Then take one more receiving blanket and fold it into a log. Double over the end that sticks out the wheel, so it looks nice. Then start to open the blanket in the center to balance the basket on. Wrap around the bottom edges of the basket if necessary. Then tuck the remaining blanket inside the back main wheel. Top with your favorite stuffed animals. Stick pins may be needed if your blanket will not stay tight enough to hold your basket.

      Please let me know if this was helpful or if you need more instruction. Thanks for reading!

    3. thank you Whitney I really appreciate it :)
