One of the few things in life that actually urk me is people and excessive pinning on Pinterest. 
There are so many users, and rather then pinning something new, they just repin crap they have found. They never click on the original source to see if its even valid. When i pin or even repin I make sure i can find the original source. .

I also actually do the things I pin and dont put them in a album just to say "oh I found that on Pinterest once." 
With that aside, here is a couple of projects I have accomplished with Pinterest lately. 

Here is my version : 

Here is another thing that is great, it saves you time and money, and you know whats in the products you are using! 

If you try anything on Pinterest to the homemade effect... make the dishwasher soap! It works better then the $5 boxes of crud you get from the grocery store. Total cost for this project is right around $13. When i run out of laundry soap from couponing i am going to make my own laundry soap as well from a similar recipe! 

Here are a couple of other projects i have been working on lately. 

My 6 year old is having a angry birds 7th birthday party, of course gotta break out the DIY decorations! 

$1 Lantern from the Dollar Tree plus the pig cut out from the Angry Birds Party Theme on The Party Animal.

These heads were inspired by Betsy over at My Salvaged Treasures she has several mannequins she has covered in vintage patterns to give them style when showcasing her jewelry. Hers look much better than mine do!  All you need is modge podge, an old pattern and some Styrofoam heads!

Well thats all i have to share now, hope you find some inspiration! 


  1. Hi Goldie....I love the burlap egg wreath. What a cool idea! I don't have anything on my front door as I coudn't find anything I liked...great idea.

  2. Yours looks fabulous! Aren't they fun to make, and the pattern tissue paper is so easy to work with. Love your version of the burlap wreath and the lantern is adorable. Thanks for sharing all your projects:-)
