My Pinterest Obsession

As I have stated in other posts, I'm a little obsessed with Pinterest.  Okay, okay, maybe a lot obsessed.  I have been getting some great ideas from there and have been slowly trying them out.  You may have read about my painted mason jars and my fruit crate.

I thought it would be fun to keep sharing some of the things I try from my Pinterest inspiration.  I'll even include the good AND the bad.

Here is the latest:

I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to ideas for using crates and pallets.  One of my favorite ideas was the pallet shelf.  Once I convinced my husband to jump on board the pallet train, he tracked down a pallet and we ended up with this bad boy on our wall:

I'm still playing around with different nic-nacs and I have to put more pictures in the empty frames.  But other than that, it's finished and on the wall.  We love it.

What do you think?  Would you ever put a pallet on your wall?

Expanding My Horizons

After a busy Christmas season over at Jestti, I am enjoying the lull in activity.  During down times, I tend to want to try something new.  And with the encouragement of my friend Courtney, over at Courtney Lorenz Photography, I've found the perfect new adventure!  I've started knitting newborn photo props!  Cute stuff like newborn hats and headbands and blankets and diaper covers and......the list goes on.  I can't wait to get all my projects finished and see them on precious little babies.  Here is a sneak peek of part of my knitting pile:

I'll be adding some pom poms to that white hat and the pink yarn on the needles will also be a cozy little hat.  Fun, fun!  I'll hopefully be adding a few here and there to my line of products over at Jestti.
