Soooo, Pinterest. I avoided jumping on the bandwagon for a while. I don't know why. It may have been because I knew I'd be completely addicted, living and breathing Pinterest. That's how I am. I find something new and jump all in. It can become all consuming. That happens a lot when I start a new book. I do my day to day stuff, all the while thinking about the book that's beckoning me. I'm a bit of a nerd that way.
It all started with a sugar shaker. I was at a friends house making coffee and asked for some sugar. She pulled out this adorable sugar shaker made with a mason jar, salt pour spout, and some scrapbook paper. When I asked where she got it, she said, "Pinterest! You have to check it out!" Later that night I received an invitation to join Pinterest... and the rest is history.
Today I added this to my blog:
If you haven't done this on your blog and you want to, click here for instructions. It's EASY! Usually I call my friend Amanda for help, but I decided to try it myself first before I bugged her. Success!
Here's where it all began for me:

My girls and I were painting our nails.
