Pinning-Winning Wednesday

Today I don't exactly have a project...but I just wanted to talk about something that bothers me everytime I get on Pinterest.
Don't get me wrong...I LOVE it.  It's an amazing resource......when people use it correctly.
If you use Pinterest, here are a few tips on how to use it beneficially:

1.  Check the pin before you re-pin.
    So many times I see a pin I really like- and when I click through- it's just linked to the whole blog, rather than the post

2. Edit the caption.
Granted, this is not always necessary- but goes hand-in-hand with number 1.  Don't pin or re-pin something you like on etsy with the caption, "so cute DIY" or "flower tutorial".  Try not to "false advertise".

3. Spam Pins.
After searching for a few specific recipes recently, I discovered that there are a ridiculous amount of "spam pins".  Pins that have a picture of something, ie; brownies, but are linked to some ridiculous site asking you to sign up for something or another.  It's absurd, annoying and a bit frustrating when people continue to repin them.

Everything goes back to Pinning with Care.  Check it before you Pin it. 
For everyone's sake.

Pinning-Winning Wednesday

Alright, I know it's not Wednesday...sorry it's early!
If you have a Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen these:

I loved the idea, and knew it was perfect for our "family" wall in our living room.

I had snagged a frame the day after Thanksgiving for this exact purpose.  
Then I picked out my paper (brown, beige & green to match our living room).
I traced our hands onto to paper, then cut.
I just taped them onto the white paper, incase I wanted to change that cute little hand as it grew/as we added more.

P.S. Has anyone else already switch to google+ for image editing?  Do you sometimes edit a picture, but then after you save it- it looks all wonky?

Deliciously Delish!

Pinterest has become my go-to source for recipes.  
So many yummy ideas for dinners, treats, and snacks. Here is my most recent endeavor:

I followed her recipe and am in love!  I doubled the recipe, because both my husband and I love to snack.  
So easy, and a lot cheaper than Chewy bars.  Here's my tip: make sure you press everything firmly.
To store mine, I wrapped each individual bar in wax paper and twisted the ends.
What are you waiting for? Go make some deliciousness for yourself!
