Pinterest reflections

There has been lots of discussion about Pinterest and copyright etc in the last few weeks. I'm ok with admitting, I'm a HUGE fan! I'm always discovering things on Pinterest and pinning to my hearts content from the World Wide Web. 

On a positive side, I have discovered blogs that I didn't know about (seriously how many are there?) and have loved reading and learning new things. These are blogs that I now follow and enjoy every day.

On a negative, I hate when I find something during a search on Pinterest and it is just a photo with no link to the original source or the blog/website not linked. So please make sure you do this properly so we can find out 'how to'!

I was thinking about all my pins, (how much time I waste te he he) and what I have been making. I thought I would share a few that I have managed to make with my own versions where possible.

So not a complete time waster! For the record, I have sourced the original blog/website but you can find them on my Pinterest page too!

Source Used the shapes to cut out cardboard crowns for Miss A's
princess party. The girls (and one boy) then decorated them.
Source I made paper garlands and hung paper lanterns and
tissue pompoms just like this for Miss A's party

Source Thanks to Martha (sigh) I learnt how to make the pompoms!

Source Made these as a gift for a friend. So lovely for a crafty person!

Source I'm slightly obsessed with Jess from Craftiness is not optional
I learnt how to do lots of felt flowers, just as she did!
Source Found Jess on another blog! Also made these for a friend
Source I made a cute one of these which my daughter now wears!
See - cute right!

Source Made these for Miss A's birthday party. OMG yum!!

I blogged about this here. My new winter skirts.
Source Gorgeous denim bibs with ribbon detail

My version modeled by my cute nephew (who was hard to keep still!)
So you see, it can't be a complete waste of time if I have managed to create all these wonderful things. Right?

  1. I love Pinterest and am glad it's around, as long as people are respectful of the source and link back I think it can be a great way to share and discover!
