A "Pinspired" Party!

Let's face it Pinterest is changing the crafting world as we know it. 
For me, I was inspired to throw a party filled with some of the lovely things I've discovered on this incredible website.
Though you may not have joined in on all the fun of the party you can at least experience it vicariously through this party recap!

Here's what we ate:

{Large Cinched Tote} Tutorial

With spring & summer lingering in our minds, dreaming of warm days lounging on the beach or under a shady tree...oh sorry I got a bit carried away there!
Well you know what's been on my mind! And that's precisely what got me inspired to make this oversized tote for all your summer luggin' (get it? summer lovin'?) I know, lame.

Easy Reversible Baby Beanie

Time to bust out the sewing machine yet again for another easy-to-make baby beanie. Making it without the flower for the little boy in your life and with it for that cute touch for the precious girl.
This beanie is reversible so that it can grow with your little one. 

Using the beanie this way is perfect for a 3-9 month old.

Valentine's Day Cupcakes & Pie Form Cake Stand

It's been years now that I've been saying "I need a cake stand". Why I never bought one is beyond me, however, since I never did buy one I decided now's the perfect time to MAKE one!
Then when I decided to make one I thought "I can't show it without some delicious cupcakes to display on it!" So that lead me to my next decision to get baking...yum!

Hope you enjoy this two-in-one cake stand & cupcakes post!

DIY {Peanut Butter Smoothie}


When I became pregnant I automatically assumed that peanut butter was out of the question. I was so happy when I found out that this was not the case since I craved it just about everyday. One of my guilty pleasures is a certain smooth shop's Peanut Butter smoothie but with how often I wanted one it was getting a bit pricey. So what did I do? I decided to try making it at home with good old fashion ingredients. Turns out this is pretty darn easy to do. If you are a Peanut Butter smoothie lover like me all you need to do is follow the instructions below and viola you have your very own PB smoothie! I'm telling you, it taste just the same. Sorry it's not so healthy though, probably why I packed on so many pregnancy pounds!

Project Preview

Unfortunately with a blizzard on the horizon I will not be spray painting anything today or tomorrow or Saturday for that matter. But I thought it would nice to give you a sneak peak into my next project. If you spend anytime at all on Pinterest then you've probably got an idea of what I'm about to do. If you don't, well then I guess you'll just have to hang tight and await the surprise! 
All I will say is that it will include each of these items (and a few more).
