I have thoroughly enjoyed coming up with titles for my boards. I started out with normal names like everyone else and than inserted personality a while later. Anyhoo, why do I enjoy this mindless activity as much or more than facebook? Don't get me wrong. I love facebook and can't speak highly enough about it. However, after you've read all the posts 3 times in one day and have nothing else to do what then? Pinterest! That's what!
I don't just look and do nothing but wish for the stuff on there. It has sparked my creativity! It has motivated me to open another online shop. I closed my shop in 2009 when we headed out to Nebraska. I really enjoyed having a shop online and bringing in income for the family. It made me feel super wonderful! So, here I am opening another one but this time on Etsy because it focuses on handmade and vintage items which I've always loved making and finding. And, yes if I am driving down the road and I see a piece of picket fence or an interesting, albeit broken kitchen type chair in someone's trash...yep, you got it! My car circles the block, peels to a halt and out I jump to grab it before sombody else does! It's a tough market around here in Cleveland! The trash pickers start early and all the good stuff is gone by 11am! Gosh, I really hate when I hit publish post instead of save when I am not done editing! So, let me show you a few projects I've started or finished that have been inspired by Pinterest.
|A whole Tree of Life Series has spurred from this one!|
|So, totally unedited on photoshop |
(I'm so inept on the computer sometimes)! Also, unfinished!
|This is also, unphotoshopped! And, needs more sewing!|
And, here is the link to see the dress that has sparked this one! http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/town-festival-dress
