Pinterest Round up #1

I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, as do many of you, so I thought I would start a weekly posting of my top five pins from each week. The more I pin, the more I find I need to add more boards to organize all those pins. This past week I created a new board based on one such pin. It wasn't long before I accumulated 89 pins. That's a lot of cupcakes!

Favorite Pin #1
This was originally pinned from Rachelles Beautiful Bespoke Cakes, out of London. Her creations are just amazing. If you check out her blog, which is linked on her site, you can see how she puts together some of these sweet designs.

Favorite Pin #2
Chevron Baby Blanket

This precious little blanket can be found over at Eat, Knit, & DIY. which I find amusing since this is a crocheted blanket. I often get requests from crocheted gifts whenever a new baby is close to arriving. This blanket will make a fine addition to my collection of go-to gifts, especially with the recent popularity of the chevron pattern. Added bonus - I found a new blog to follow!

Favorite Pin#3
Placemat Bibs
Not surprising that I would pin something from MADE. I love this blog. I've been stalking it for over a year now. Dana is a mama blogger after my own heart. Not only is she a mom to three adorable kids, but she is also an author. She posts lots of sewing tutorials and offers her patterns for sale. To make me even more envious, she is a great photographer.

Favorite Pin #4
Lemongrass Planters
Just another reminder that spring is here and I need to give my yarn some serious TLC. Supposedly, lemongrass repels mosquitoes, or so this site claims. That would be great, but I was also drawn to it because I think it would require very little care. I have other things I want to be doing besides working in the crocheting, sewing, reading. You know, the important stuff.

Favorite Pin #5

Uses for Coconut Oil
Have you jumped on the coconut oil bandwagon? I didn't even know this stuff existed until a few months ago. Now I use it to remove my makeup and as a moisturizer. Did you know it has anti-bacterial properties in it? Plus, you can use it in cooking. The lists just keeps growing.

There you have it. Not a bad start. I just need to organize my boards a little more now that they have grown to such large numbers. Plus, I need to file the ones I really want to keep. Nothing worse than clicking on a pin than to find out that the page is gone. I copy and paste the page content into Microsoft One Note to save it permanently. What do you do?

Happy Pinning!
