Hello, good morning, and Happy Friday! Looks like we are going to have a wet weekend. We have a relaxing weekend planned. Geeps and I are going to catch a movie tomorrow afternoon with our daughters. We weren't invited. We noodled our way in. When Gennifer was doing my hair the other day, she was receiving texts from her sister Erika, regarding their movie plans. I said.....Hey...I would love to go too! And when I told Geeps, he said...what about me? So I guess whoever wants to go will be going. I think my Mom may even join us. I think we are seeing the Tom Hanks movie.
I want to talk about Pinterest! Do you Pinterest? I do. I love it. I was only lukewarm on it at first. It was confusing to me (what's new? Lots of things are!) and I only did it a little bit. But then my girls were raving about it, and I gave it another whirl. Oh my goodness, what a great site this is. I am a magazine junkie and I must spend a fortune on my favorite magazines. Well, in our efforts to "Simplify" our lives, I have not been purchasing too many as of late. I often go to Barnes & Noble to leaf through some of my favorites, purchasing only the ones that I know I will refer to later. Pinterest has virtually taken away my magazine habit!! You can find any kind of inspiration you can imagine on Pinterest. What fun. If you haven't tried it, you should! I found this little gem on Pinterest, and thought it was genius. Using an empty oatmeal container, you attach your headbands for easy access, and also have the use of the container itself for hair bands and accessories. This would have been fantastic for me when I had two little girls who never went anywhere without pretty bows in their hair. But for me, I wanted to display my newest shop items, headband Bloomies! The one I saw on Pinterest was aqua. But it was done with paper. I actually removed the labeling and painted the cardboard in a pretty aqua, because I had a can of that from my recent garden chair I painted. I painted two coats, and did the lid as well. But the next one I do I think I will try it in paper, for a smoother surface. But I love it!
