{inspire} pinterest

Did you all have a good weekend? I had a super relaxing weekend with my family at the beach. Do any of you follow March Madness? This is the first year since middle school that I haven't filled out a bracket. At first I was kicking myself, but there was so much amazing basketball this weekend and it turns out that it didn't matter. In fact, it was almost better because then I wasn't forced to root for the team I'd chosen ... I could root for the rock star underdogs! :)


We didn't get to work on the house at all this weekend, but I did start a fun spring craft project that I'm hoping to finish up quickly and share with you! Today though, I thought I'd show you a peek into my Pinterest account. Are you all on Pinterest? I've been a member for quite awhile now, but it's only been the past couple months that I really started playing and fell in love with all the goodness on the site and it's organizational capabilities. 


The mood board I put together for the back entry? As I was finding images I loved, I saved them on Pinterest. Then, when I found something new I could look at the *Mud Room Ideas* folder and tell at a glance if that product would work with my over feel or not. 


And of course, there's a plethora of inspiration going on here. In fact, I think it would be all too easy to get sucked in for hours on end. I mean really. How awesome is this mobile (above) and this cake (below)!?


Last week I started a folder for my *To Makes* and I feel like it will fill up all too quick! :)


I am dying to make a quilt like this!


All the photos in the post are images or products that I love and have recently inspired me. You can follow me at http://pinterest.com/jennmccormick.

Are you on Pinterest? Let me know your user name in the comments ... I would love to see what's been inspiring you lately! Or wanna talk basketball? How about Butler? OR VCU? OMG!

  3. Pinterest sounds fun and inspirational!

    My brothers and mom went to the Arizona game this weekend in Anaheim since they live nearby (1 hour or so drive with traffic). My brother graduated from there and I was hoping they would at least make the final 4, but alas it was not meant to be :)

    Hope you are having a good week!

  4. I will definitely be checking out your Pinterest and your blog more - we just bought a fixer upper home about six months ago, so I'm always looking for ideas, tips, and inspiration!

  8. I love Pinterest, but I found myself a little too caught up in it a while ago! For a couple of months last year, I was one of the top people who came up under food photos, and I felt this pressure to keep up, and to pin a certain amount, so that I'd stay on the list and get more followers.

    Looking back, that was all completely silly, and I am glad I let it go. :-) But it's still great for collecting inspiring images!

    Find my pins here.
