This month was particularly challenging because the Pinterest theme was open: share any project that inspired you to create. I can walk around the house and find a few projects that would never have been finished if it wasn't for a simple pin.
I'll start with my most proud baking moment: ombre frosting. The cake and buttercream frosting was made from scratch, but the real pin-inspiration came with the frosting design! I pinned this amazing tutorial from Trang's Kitchen, and although I can't read the content, the graphics were self-explanatory enough to bring this to Easter lunch:
The front door also received flare with this 'welcome' decal that I created with the Silhoutte. Most pin-spiration includes script type and that's just not my style. I recently downloaded the freebie Abraham Lincoln font (hello 16th POTUS!) and carefully added the decal (pin-spiration).
These two pin-spiration projects have already been on display here at IHB, but they deserve another 15 seconds of fame: turn an unused toothbrush holder into a vase and give an old clay pot some color for indoor flare. (and the fake plant comes from a goodwill score.)
And finally, but not least, shelf styling. I'm not great at this and really want to be better and Pinterest has a treasure trove of ideas. Something that I started is my basket of well wishes. I save all of my thank you notes and announcements here and when I'm feeling a little down, I like to go through the stack and remind myself how great I really have it.
How has Pinterest inspired you this month? I just packed for a business trip based on my outfit pins and most of my dinners are only finished with the steps in my pinned recipes. Even if you can't build a bench this month (that's my next goal), you can take on small projects any day of the week.
