Keeping Pinning, But Do More

At first I thought, I should pin less and do more...

but then I thought...


continuing to pin excessive amounts of projects, but doing more with what I pin
was more fun.
So I started with my mug exchange mug. 
Inspired by A Beautiful Mess, I added a quote to a classic white mug.
Just a sharpie and a quick bake in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
It works as long as you hand wash the mug.
A fun way to jazz up and personalize a simple piece.
Inspired by One Perfect Day, we made salt paintings.
I followed the directions in the comment section of the pin and used food coloring...
after going to her blog I realized that her paintings were much more vibrant in color when she used water color paints.  We may have to try this one again with water colors instead of food coloring.
Inspired by HGTV, we made bird feeders.
We just used bird food instead of oats, raisins, and sunflower seeds...
the easier the better for this momma.
For this one I pinned a cute idea where someone (the link to the original source was incorrect) used a tension shower rod and curtains between a crib and a wall to create a unique little reading or play space.

We didn't really have a good space in Girlfriend's room to make this idea work,
but simply adding the tension shower rod and curtains to the outside of her bedroom door added a grand feel to a regular old bedroom door.
Such a whimsical addition with items we already had in our linen closet.
