Pinterest....I resisted it, knowing I'd be hooked, until one day about a month ago. I wanted to look up the recipe for a powdered laundry detergent which I received a sample of from a friend. She had commented in passing that she found it on Pinterest. I reluctantly typed pinterest.com into my address bar and the rest is history. I've been pinning like crazy. In my defense, I've also been doing like crazy. What I love about Pinterest is that a picture is tagged to all the links making it so easy to find the craft I pinned last week that I'm ready to make now. In the past I would add links to my favorites bar and they would get lost in a sea of words. I'd click on every link that had the word turkey in it before I'd find the right craft. By the time I located the directions my crafter would be on to other things and we'd end up forgetting about it. Not with Pinterest. I just pop onto my boards and scroll through until I find the pic and then click over to the original post and voila! we are ready to get busy. That was a long way of saying that each week I'll be doing a post called "How Pinterest Got Me Through The Week". I'll highlight the crafts, recipes and home decor ideas I try with a quick review. I wish I had been taking pics of all the things we've done already. Some hot and some NOT.
And lastly Happy Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for this year. Of course there's the new little guy who's not so new anymore. He'll be 1 in just a few weeks. I'll introduce him in his own post. But so many other things as well: family, health, home addition. I'm leaving you with a lovely prayer from the Magnificat magazine.
As always don't forget the cranberries.
