It's the last weekend of the month, so you know what that means? It's time to link up with my fellow Weekend Warriors!!
103 boards and 4,472 pins... YIKES! Although I will admit I was a pinaholic in the early months, while now I tend to be more selective with what I pin.
Today I want to share with you some of the pinspiring home and crafting ideas I've implemented in recent months. Click here to see my classroom pinspirations from this weekend's blog hop! First up, I needed to do something about the HOT MESS I called my jewelry box. Sadly, I'm not a bracelet girl, although I really wish I was (Alex + Ani anyone??? I wish...), but I end up playing with them and taking them off during the day. I'm more of a necklace girl. There are tons of pins out there, like this one, or this one, or this one. I needed some serious organization, so I went to
The drawer pull was $4-$5 each. In the same aisle, they also had racks with hooks with decorative pieces on the ends, but I felt like that would be cheating. If I'm calling this a Pinterest project, I actually need to make something. And by "I," I mean the hubs :) He's such a champ! I also liked the random, yet somewhat matching look of the pulls that I chose. The pre-made racks had the same decorative pieces on each hook.
I love how I can now see all the necklaces that I have, and what colors I need more of :)
OK, up next, a little crochet project. I was pinspired by this pattern. One of the second grade teachers at another school in my district is expecting a baby girl any day now! She posted pictures of her nursery on Facebook and said her theme was "You Are My Sunshine." I actually pinned the pattern several weeks before I found out that nugget of info, but had no reason to make it. So you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered her theme because it fit perfectly! Her colors are cream, gray, and yellow, but of course I had to add some pink!
It's a little hot in June/July for a hat (which is my specialty), so this lovey was a perfect alternative!
Speaking of babies... I'm currently 31 weeks with our Baby #3, and we don't know baby's gender! We have a boy and a girl already and found out with both of them, so we decided to be surprised for the last one. Yes, this is the last one! I wanted to make a baby blanket for the baby, so I scoured Pinterest and found this pattern. If you haven't noticed, I tend to gravitate towards turquoise and green, and since those colors tend to be more gender-neutral, that's what we're going with for the nursery. I found the sign at Hobby Lobby, and then picked out the yarn to go with. Voila!
As you can imagine, I have lots of yarn. Problem is, I have no place to put it. I was storing it in a bunch of plastic tubs and Thirty-One bags, but I couldn't always see what I had, plus the skeins would often become tangled. I had seen lots of pins of people using those plastic shoe organizers to store cleaning supplies, jewelry, foods, and spice packets, so I came up with the idea to use one to store my yarn. Here she is!
So what do you think of my projects so far? Feel free to hop on over to my Pinterest page to tell me what I should do next! Also, don't forget to check out the projects my fellow Weekend Warriors have been working on!
