Oh my heck! I finally looked at Pinterest a couple months ago but I just stalked it occasionally. If I found something I really liked, I would just "old-school it" and bookmark the page.
A few weeks ago I finally requested an invite and got all signed-up. Now, I've become a monster!
The list of Pinterest-inspired projects/recipes/etc for just this week alone:
*made a drip-catcher for my 5-gallon cooler out of a 2-liter soda bottle
*made Red Velvet cheesecake brownies
*used a slit toilet paper roll (empty) to hold wrapping paper in place
*made Tikka Massala (family liked)
*made Honey Sesame Chicken (recipe is now deleted)
*made pizza grilled cheese sandwiches (kids will probably make for selves when I'm not cooking)
*made "52 Reasons I Love You" deck of cards for the hubs
*made punch for Chandler's birthday (I have a better recipe I'll stick with)
*made Dr. Oz' sleep smoothie for 4 nights in a row to see if it worked (didn't - I'm still not sleeping)
*bought tic-tacs so I can use the container to hold bobby pins
*made my daughters a ruffled skirt out of old t-shirts ($4 for cute skirt)
*made crockpot breakfast casserole
*made peanut butter truffle brownies (for a party tonight - haven't sampled yet)
*made Snickers popcorn for my sisters-in-law
*and will probably make orange zest cookies for the party tonight as well
Can you say "OUT OF CONTROL?"
