I love Pinterest!

I absolutely love Pinterest!  I must admit that sometimes it can be overwhelming.  I have to remind myself that it's ok if every single thing I do is not "Pinterest worthy."  For someone that loves to be creative and crafty it really is a wonderful resource!  I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner so I thought I would share some of my favorite Pinterest inspired crafts as well as recipes.

I see people decorating with windows all the time on Pinterest.  We bought these old windows from a man selling them on Craigslist.  Jonathan cleaned them up a little and then we glued pictures behind them.  I love the way they turned out.  

The picture of Lydia with the crocheted Minnie Mouse hat was actually Pinterest inspired as well.  I saw a picture of a baby wearing one and my friend, Bethany's mom made one just like it! 

"Santa" made me this shelf for our living room and I just love it!    

I used several different ideas and tutorials that I found on Pinterest to make Lydia's crib bedding as well as her mobile.  

I loved the idea of putting leftover fabric in embroidery hoops on the wall.  My friend, Whitney made the adorable picture of the zebra.  This is on the wall right over the changing table and Lydia LOVES to look at it while I'm changing her diaper or getting her dressed.  

The color isn't real great in this picture, but I once again used a combination of tutorials to make the this ruffled valance for the nursery.

Now time for the fun stuff.... FOOD!  I have tried quite a few recipes off of Pinterest and most of them have been really good.  Here are a few of my favorites (all of the pictures are taken from the linked site).

I added chicken to this and it was delicious!

Use less cocoa if you don't like dark chocolate
