Pinterest Blog Hop

Welcome to our Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop!!!

Are you addicted to Pinterest? Do you have several boards with pins that you said "I've got to try that"? Well here is your inspiration to create those awesome projects you want to try but have not yet done!

If you have arrived here from Marie's blog, than you are in the right place. If not please start from the beginning with our fabulous hostess Ashley.

Since I couldn't just pick one project to complete here are my Pinterest inspired projects.

To see where my ideas came from you can check out my Pinterest Board "Stuff I've done/tried".

Project #1
This is one of my favorite Pinterest inspired ideas.
First the before picture:

The idea:

 My results:

 My first project was my linen closet. I saw this fabulous idea on Pinterest where they suggested folding your sheets into one of the pillow cases. Makes for easier/more compact storage and you don't lose any peices!

It works and now my linen closet is so much more functional!

Project #2
The idea:

My Project:

 I started with this leftover cardboard packaging that I had saved from a pack of vellum embellishments, I thought it would be a good sturdy base for my project.
I am excited for out it turned out, see below:
This is an extremely useful addition to my kitchen and is definitely used! I laminated burgundy colored paper peices and adhered magnets to back. I don't know about you, but I have a tendency to meal plan and then change my mind, so this way I can rearrange the meals without having to erase and rewrite. I also included a larger grocery list to the right for mine, as I tend to work on my list all week long for my next grocery trip.

Project #3
The Idea:

My version, very simple project and actually far more helpful in the craftroom than I expected.
So glad I took the time to do this one!

 Project #4
The Idea:

My version of this layout below:

Project #5
(Gotta gets some good eats in here)
The idea:

How it turned out for me? Great!!!! Highly recommend this one!

 Well, I was a little over excited about this hop which is why there are so many projects. These were just a few of my pinned "I've got to try that" projects. There are so many more that I still want to do!!

Now for some blog candy. Leave me a comment and become a follower if not one already and I'll pick a random winner!
