Fun with Pinterest

Guess what?  I've escaped the house on this sunny Sunday afternoon with my laptop in tow.  I just ordered a double iced latte, and I'm gearing up to write a fun, image-filled post for all of you out there scrolling your feeds/e-mails/web!

I enjoy scanning Pinterest for home ideas, children's activities, and even simple DIY ideas.  These are often dream ideas, but sometimes I come across something I actually attempt to replicate.  Or, I find some great writing to read.  However, my favorite pins after a tough day are the funny ones.

Here are a few of my favorite pins and pinners of late:

I love a small painting project that I can do on my own that inexpensively brightens up our space.  I adore this idea of pretty-fying a plain, ol' filing cabinet:

I'm posting this one for people with younger kids.  I wish I had seen this when my kids were just a little smaller!  An easy ball pit using a pack-n-play:

I love finding cool, gender-neutral ideas for our bonus room/playroom.  I am currently working on a smaller version of this chalkboard wall (a how-to post to come shortly!).

Who doesn't have a big cardboard box laying around and a bunch of markers?  My son had fun with this:

I am obsessed with people who post so-called "Pinterest Fails," such as this Rainbow Cake:

("Nailed it!"  Haha.  Pinned from Bluntmoms.com)


And this pin from Dumpaday.com made me laugh out loud:




I'll leave you with this inspirational pin featuring the fearless Tina Fey.  I think writers, artists, comedians, or anyone who puts themselves out there, need to remember this:
