Things I want to do

Here is my to do list thanks to Pinterest. I haven't been on the site in about a month and now I remember why. That site is a wonderful, addictive, exciting time suck. I might not get any of these done because I'll be too busy pinning.

This is a do-it-yourself bathmat that is designed to reuse old towels. I like the concept but I am thinking about getting fabric (possibly fleece?) and making one for Gizmo's room. All different colors and designs. It looks time consuming so I might get it done for her second birthday:

I love canvases. Love. Them. We have canvases that I painted all over our house. I'm thinking I might combine the next two pictures. Do the fabric flower for our bedroom and then put white wooden letters over it that says, "This is our happily ever after." I fear it might be too busy though.

I have not found a good way to keep track of all of the hair things the girls have. I think I want to do a small version of this and put it in their bathroom.

I pinned this and then went to the etsy store where they are selling them for close to $200. The pin, however, said you could do it with salt clay and then paint it silver. Seems must more economical but I don't know how it will last. I want to do one with the husband's thumbprint and mine and then another one with the girls' prints. I am not a hearts kind of girl but this just is too precious.

Today is my sister's birthday, which we are celebrating this weekend. I hope to make one with her kids' thumbprints without her knowing. How I will do that, I have no idea.

Adorable. Just adorable. I hope to get this done this weekend so we can hang it up for a few week's before Valentine's Day (on a semi related note, our neighbor has fall, Christmas AND Valentine's Day decorations up outside. It makes my brain hurt every time I look out the window and see it. I forgave her - kind of - after she shoveled our driveway this weekend.)

I need to cut my hair. I was inspired by Hillary to grow our my hair so that when I cut it, I could donate it. Here are some of the styles I'm thinking of:

What has been your best Pinterest find?

Oh gosh! I love so many things on Pinterest, it's hard to pick just one!
I can't wait to see how the rug turns out if you do it. I want to try it too, but I have some other things I'm working on right now.

Um, you just solved my problem for me. See, I've been doing monthly photos of Chloe with fabric backgrounds. I was planning to make a quilt with the fabric after her first year but I am a terrible seamstress. Instead, I am going to use the fabric to make the flower canvas. Brilliant (and thanks!)!

For the hair clips, I hung a curtain rod on the wall and then hung lots of ribbons from it. Then I can clip all the hair clips to the ribbons.

I am a solid meal planner, so Pinterest is awesome for meal/grocery planning. Stuff that is a Win with the family makes it to a separate board so I can pull a quickie off if I need to.

I am irrationally excited about your hair.

Love that hairstyle! I took two pics of her last week when I got my hair cut. It's so much easier, you'd love it!

I love that little thumbprint necklace!
