Discovery


Yesterday, I had an epiphany as I searched hopefully the aisles of Jo-Ann Fabrics for Martha Stewart Clear Glitter. It was my third stop for the elusive sparkle as every other store seemed to be already sold out.


I have already crafted enough holiday fare to share with you every day the temperature is below 50 degrees, and it isn't even Halloween yet.


What am I going to do for all of the days of November?


Discover. I am going to discover all the rest this community has to offer by winding my way through blogs up to now have been unknown to me. What a treasure this Pinterest will be to me!


Just like the binders I used to print and paste craft ideas I so wanted to make, I will now use Pinterest to keep track of the wellspring of ideas I can't wait to share.


Crafty Pod is the first blog I have discovered wherein you will find an Easy as Can Be TUTORIAL to make these wonderful sparkly snowflakes. Be sure and watch the video, but then skip all of the following steps.


A simple punch of card stock and hot glue make this a craft taking only minutes. I love their vintage goodness!


You are very welcome to visit My Pinterest to see the projects I hope to make, the places that inspire me, and a glimpse into my thoughts. And please do let me know if you are also on Pinterest as I would love to see what inspires you. So this is what I will be doing for the month of November!

Pinterest is the best for stimulating your creativity. You can spend "hours" wondering around there. I'm sure, E, that you'll have a great time. Enjoy...

Oh my gosh, now you're into Pinterest!!! We'll never hear from you again....;o) I have purposely kept myself from getting addicted to that place. Its hard enough maintaining a blog, email and facebook and still trying to get things done.

Call me sometime.

Hugs,
Meri

Yay! E's on Pinterest! I cannot get enough of Pinterest. It has inspired me and keeps me in a creative frame of mind. It's easy to spend hours there and then awaken in a fog...like I've been in dreamland. =D

Denise said...

Oh yes I've been following your Pinterest for a while now. I've been on Pinterest myself also.I find there just too much to look at in My own boards then looking at others-there's no end to it.

Shirley Hatfield said...

What's your "handle"? I can't seem to find you.

Shirley Hatfield said...

Never mind...I found it...just clogging up your comments list! =D

Denise said...

Well, at least I thought I was following you on Pinterest but it seems I just signed up now?

I think you will enjoy pinterest, so many neat ideas and recipes on there! Love your little snow flakes, I'll have to head on over to see how they are made! :) xo Holly

Pinterest is wonderful! I have limited my time on it though. Several hours go by in the blink of an eye when you start pinning. I try to just pin at night when I have my down time and am watching tv. You can go to my blog and click on the"follow me" button at the top and check out what I have pinned :) I love these snowflakes! I am going to have to make a few. I plan on having a white Christmas tree with twinkly lights in my craftroom this year so I will need some cute ornaments to fill it. Your snowflake ornaments will be perfect! Happy crafting, Holly

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

Hi E! I just checked out your Pinterest and you have pinned such cute things! I haven't joined yet because I fear that I'll become addicted like everyone says!
But I think it's about time that I get with the program!

Pinterest is soooo much fun!! I spend hours finding great ideas on there. I will need to quit my job to have enough time to make/do everything I've pinned.

Jann Olson said...

Oh I have not begun to make anything new for Christmas. Love all of your creativity! I have some woderful glass chards of glitter that I bought last year. They add such a vintage touch. I have been trying to resist Pinterest. Thinking blogging keeps me on the computer enough. I think I may have to cave and see what you pin.
Hugs,
Jann

Hi you have always been a great support of my blog Kitsch n Stuff http://cdiannezweig.blogspot.com/

I am on a roll...a blog roll to add lots of vintage, retro, collectibles blogs to my blog roll and ask others to add my blog Kitsch n Stuff to their blog rolls.

Is there anyway you could ask your blog friends if they would like to participate? THANKS
