pinterest challenge: cute car trash bag

When we lived in a city, driving around was always a short-term thing. We’d be in the car for 5, 10 or maybe a rare 15 minute trip if we were going to the “other side of town” for something. We didn’t eat in the car. And we certainly never had trash in the car….

Popsicle Stick WorkoutsIt's time for another Pinterest Challenge, friends! If you weren't around the last time I did one of these, basically, it's a self-instituted challenge to stop pinning and actually turn some of the ideas on my Pinterest boards into reality.

pinterest challenge: thrift store cake stands

How to Make Cake Stands from Thrift Store FindsI'm not sure if you guys know this or not, but I'm kinda obsessed with Pinterest. This sounds really cheesy and kumbaya-y, but the truth is, Pinterest helps restore my faith in the human race. There are so many clever, creative and interesting ideas on there that it makes me feel like, as a species, we must be doing something right. That all being said, there is a dark side to it all.
