I pinnnn too much in my free time. Granted it is a better hobby than smoking crack, ghetto painting passing trains or spewing hate, rage, anger and discontent all over Fbook. The religious zealouts politicalhatorades friends sometimes drive me a little bonkers and I catch myself repeating the mantra ifwewerentfamilyidblokeyouSOFAST. So fast. Except I LOVE you. LVOE. Just like that, all awkward spelling and all. And as much as I was slow and didn't want to love the Pinterest ... I did and I do and it's an easy timekiller while watching yetanotherepisodeofStarTrek or in the bathroom (please like you just watch paint dry or meditate in that room) or those last few minutes of trying to trick the brain into the off position on the pillow. (It does keep my creative juices piqued.)
I found a slew of cute couple and family photo ideas including duct taping children to walls, families covered in paint while solemnly holding paintbrushes, reflection and cute kissing photos, shadows, iPhone, chalk and the like. My poor future adopted children. You will love the uniqueness of a mom with a red fauxhauk, a dad with a redneck and my abstract of the norm. Wearing your superman costume to school? Sure! Eggs shaped like mickeymouse? Sure! Getting too dress up as your favorite book or movie character and jump through the air like a monkey while screaming GE-O-R-G-E instead of the a cheesy smile and cocked hip? Oh.Hellz.Yes. The messier and freer the better.
Beer, baking soda and raw potato slices are your friends. Just ask your blackheads, baggy eye circles and flaky scalp. Or the guinea pig and writer known as Megan Zatko. Sometimes DIYer are all over it. My actual follow through ability? Maaaybeee.
With the name of Shrimp Salad Circus how can you not be a winner? I'm in love with her tutorials and you can never have too many photography tips for the inner geek and point-and-shooter like me who has the attention span of a whydoesthatsquirrelhavemychocolate? MIIIINE!
Lemon Jitters is too darn cute and crafty. Free valentines day printables and downloads? Please ... I will remember these right after I write I (love) You across my husband's forehead with a sharpie while he's sleeping. Every man should see a daily reminder of who loves him. And share it with his world.
Someone else who has learned the hard way that it is never as easy as ordering 'a-big-cup-of-caramelly-coffeethattasteslikesugarandfeelslikecoffee-blended-mkay-please'. Ashlie Blake's coffee faces were ridiculously awesome. I'm a little jealous, the words 'drive-through-Starbucks' don't exist, or I have yet to find one in our German neck-of-the-woods.
Yes, that was my actual cup. Jenny? Jimmie? Jill? No. Gin. Like the ... The FIRST coffeewench that can spell it correctly off of me saying Gin without any extra explanation will get a huge tip. Or a gift card. Or my eldest child. Or my eldest child's lawncare services.
Ms Blake is also a fun vintagey artist who has my favorite kind of thing: a crochet tab! So I think I'm hooked and must stalk her a little as well. Funky people, coffee lovers and fiber fiends unite!
