Friday is Pinterest Day

I, like many others, have fallen victim to the time vacuum that is Pinterest. I heard one person say that they "drank the Pinterest kool-aid." HAH! So to celebrate my love (addiction, obsession, fixation, compulsion -- whichever word you'd like) I've decided to call Friday "Pinterest Day" here on my blog...just to share with you a few of the many things that I have pinned throughout the week. And, in case you are wondering if I actually get any use out of my pins, the answer is a big resounding YES! I've even created a board where I post the pins I've actually made. So, without further a-do, here are some of my top pins for the week!

I made this cookie this week. I had to substitute some of the ingredients. It was still yummy!

Stick 'Em Up!

Another trend that I enjoy is vinyl! It's such a nice and cheap way to decorate your home. Years ago when I bought my Silhouette, I justified it because it cuts vinyl. Last year (only took about 4 years), I decided that maybe I should try cutting vinyl since that's one of the reasons I bought it. Here are some of the places I found to stick my vinyl to.

 First, is one of my scrapbooking cabinets. I used the 3 branch tree by Lori Whitlock. (Silhouette Store)
 Next, is a saying I have in my craft room above some cabinets. This is one of my favorites. I used Count Your Blessings by Loni Stevens and Antique Flourish by Lori Whitlock. (Also both from the Silhouette store)
 Here is my sewing area. I just have a small flower here. Simple, but sweet. (Flower Stalk by Jamie Koay, Silhouette store)
Here is a picture frame that I made, and then the close up of the vinyl. This one I'm frustrated with because as soon as I put the vinyl down, the glass picked it up and it's crooked! I haven't found a way to fix it yet without moving every letter individually. Moral of the story -- don't let the vinyl touch the glass until you are absolutely ready! (Family Subway Art by Ginny Nilson, Silhouette store)
This is a shelf in my entryway. It usually has candles on it, but I took down my Christmas ones and haven't replaced them yet. Anyway, it's another simple and sweet one. (Flourish from Silhouette store)
 And last but not least is my Bible verse that is above my store in the kitchen. This one I bought from Hobby Lobby from DCWV. I just put this one up yesterday. I love love love it.

So there is some craftiness I've been doing (and has been done for awhile). What do you think of the vinyl craze? I think I still have a few walls and picture frames that could use a little something extra! I love my Silhouette for cutting out the vinyl, but the store bought vinyl (such as the DCWV) is really cost effective as well (Hobby Lobby often has 50% off sales.)

A Little Cupcake Love

I know, cupcakes are all the rage right now. And I just can't help but jump on the cupcake bandwagon. They are so cute and look so good. I have always loved the cupcake, but now that they have become a trend, I think I love them more. I'm not generally a trend follower (mustaches?? yuck!) But in this case, pull the bandwagon over, I'm jumping on! And of course, we can thank Pinterest for this growing obsession of mine. Here are some of my favorites!

Life's Too Short

I love this Itty Bitty from Unity Stamp Co. Life's too short to match socks! I think instead of matching socks, we should all craft instead! I'm going to try and make a better effort to not only craft, but to blog more too. I really enjoy sharing my creations. And I have about 100 things that I've been thinking of that I would like to make/do. Anyway, on to the card!
