Pins I've actually tried

I'm sure you've all heard of Pinterest by now, and probably love it as much as I do. And I'm sure, like me, you pin all sorts of wonderful and inspiring ideas ... and seldom actually do them.

But! I have actually tried some pins and I thought I'd share them here with you in this post and also in future posts. If you do a similar post on your own blog please link to it in the comments, I'd love to check it out!

As you know, I put an apron in a jar for this gift hamper. And there you were, thinking I was all original.

An adorable idea; you can see my version here.

I tried this idea when hanging my Christmas bauble wreath.

I made a similar organiser for our car, which you can see here.

Although the jar thing isn't new to me, I did like the idea of separating eye and face brushes and tried it for a while, but have since gone back to one jar with my most frequently used brushes all together.

I now freeze many of my goodies flat in ziplock bags as they stack so nicely.

You can see my version here.

  1. Is that a cup cake holder that you used for the christmas bauble tree? Looks adorable and easy to do :)

    1. Yes it is - cute idea, huh?

  2. hi Jen I love pinterest my invite seems to be taking ages to come. If I email you would you mind inviting me? thanks deb

    1. I'd be happy to but you have no email address attached to your Blogger account :( Could you email me please?

    2. no worries Jen the invite arrived now thanks. I'm so addicted to it not sure when I'll get around to it all though!

  3. I guess we all have the same idea. I started a pin board with all of the things that I have found on pinterest and tried myself or stuff that I found on pinterest which I was already doing or did do. Take care. Becki
