pin approved!

{this background image was also a "pin" but i can't get the link to work. just fyi. i like to give credit where credit is due}

i was inspired by lindsay to share some of the ideas from pinterest that i've tried and liked! i know that people have their varying opinions about pinterest, but i feel the original intent was to share ideas & provide inspiration to actually try. here are some of my most recent projects that were {mostly} successful:

tape painting.
Tape painting. YES!!!! SO gonna try this!
pinned here.

this was a surprisingly speedy process. it looks much more complicated than it is. i just used regular scotch tape, and picked a completely random design. (i think it looks so impressive for how easy it was). i touched up a few places with white paint afterwords, but it only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish! 

my version:

coffee body scrub.
coffeebodyscrub DIY: Coffee Body Scrub
pinned here.

this was amazing!! don't throw away your coffee grounds. it's a great consistency for a body scrub! my one tip--> lather up with the scrub while the water is off in the shower and then rinse WELL. it's quite messy, but smells great & leaves your skin silky smooth! 

tshirt head wrap.

pinned here.

what a great way to re-use an old tshirt or tank top! only a few steps and you have a comfy headwrap! (isn't mandy adorable?)

i made two, one in grey and this one:

have you tried any 'pins' lately?

hope you enjoy your holiday weekend! <3
