The sad truth is that like most although I put the hours into pinning, very little time is ever spent actually creating anything from my boards. Periodically I may have a little pin or board cull where I decide to organize my jumble, but even then it is rare that I see a DIY I decide to actually make.
Good Housekeeping? When I saw it, I thought it was adorable and would be really cute in our kitchen. Heck, I even have the porcelain pens to create it! However, I've never gotten round to it.
This amazing etched glass trifle bowl by makeit-loveit was one of my very first pins! In fact, this DIY was one of the reasons I bought my Silhouette Cameo! A friend even presented me with an exact replica trifle bowl as an anniversary gift so that I could make my very own. But, after some not so great attempts at glass etching, I always manage to talk myself out of it :(
It's not just homeware DIYs either!
It's not all doom and gloom though, I mean I have managed to create a few pinterest finds!
Wizard of Oz Dorothy glass?
And we actually use pinterest as a family quite a bit when it comes to arranging dinner recipes!
I have two main boards; 'Possible Dinner Recipes' which is where we store all the recipes we would like to try as a main meal and 'Tried and Tested Recipes' which is an elite board that only the yummiest recipes are pinned to. For our pins in the tried and tested board, I use the description text to make any notes about the recipe. For example we have a mean pizza dough recipe that we slightly alter by omitting the corn meal, but adding Italian herbs into the dough. Adding notes ensures I don't forget when whipping up the next batch.
I actually know of a few ladies that have made it their New Years resolution to make one new thing from their pinterest boards a week. I'm not sure I could quite manage one a week, but I'm definitely going to try and increase the amount.
MeandPinterest. Fingers crossed it makes it onto the Tried and Tested board ;)
The roasted cabbage wedges were okay, but not amazing. In truth, I probably wouldn't make them again as both myself and Chris prefer boiled cabbage!
