Are You Pinning?

So I have been in Pinterest for a very SHORT period of time and I already have 30 boards and 352 pins... maybe even a few more by the time I finish this post... (I multi-task).

I think it is so great to not only be able to use one site to find fabulous things but also use the site like a personal directory for my own things.  Whenever I am working and get a mental block or just need to take my mind off of something... I pin. When I am too tired to work or clean up, but not quite ready for bed... I pin. If I had a pinning app on my phone... I'd pin more.

I wonder... Do I pin, therefor I am? Or I am, therefor I pin? Hmmm... I wonder if I could find a pin with the answer?

Do you pin? What type of boards do you have?

A Bzz Worthy Campaign

I have spent the last few weeks looking at reviews and stats of e-readers for myself and my son... who is a HUGE reader. I had been leaning towards the Kindle and was hoping to try one out before I made the purchase. Sadly, none of my friends own one yet although most of my friends are also HUGE readers.  
Then this afternoon I saw this: 

Could it be? Did BzzAgent hear my silent prayers to try this wonderful electronic device? Was my letter to Santa intercepted by BzzAgent to make my e-reading dreams come true?

One of the best things about being a BzzAgent is getting to try out new products and share my opinions with friends, family and my Twitterverse and Facebook World(those whom I am connected with on Twitter / Facebook) who follow me.  

Sometimes I even receive coupons and discount codes to share with my circle... I bet my friends and family are going to want to try this one out too!

Me Vs The DIY Repurposed Laundry Soap Box

My favorite crafts are the ones I can create with things from around the house.  Being able to complete an entire project without a trip to the craft or hardware store has such a rewarding feeling... although I love visiting both the craft store and the hardware store.

I have a lot of different types of glue for my crafting, scrapping and other sticky things and wanted to keep them all together in something portable.  

I usually do not use powdered laundry but it was on SALE so I was all over it!  

The best thing was, it came in a box... a box that deserved more in life than to just hold soap... like hold bottles of glue!

I picked a few pieces or scrapbook paper and cut them to size.  For each side of the box, I just measured and cut. It was pretty simple.
With a little help from my friend, Mod Podge... okay, one of best friends... Viola!  A covered box that can sit on my studio counter without being an eyesore... at least not to me. I like it!
