Do You Pinterest?

Do you Pinterest?  
I am in love with Pinterest!  
Where else in the world can you find and share the most amazing ideas, pictures, projects and recipes?  
There is so much creativity and inspiration it’s mind boggling.  Truely!
I have my own inspiration boards for everything from party ideas to recipe ideas to DIY ideas!  
So this week, when some blog gals (Katie Bower who is one of my faves!) got together to do a Pinterest Challenge, 
I thought it would be so neat to see what they found for inspiration!  
They also challenged others to make something!
I love a good challenge!  So I made this simple and easy message board, 
with inspiration from Lemonade Makin’ Mama!
It just so happened that I had a frame waiting to be truly loved, 
and a big old roll of chicken wire in the garage!  A match made in heaven!
But I decided to use mine as a picture frame, and I can change up the pictures any time I wish!

And as a bonus, it’s got a perfect place in my farm-inspired bedroom!
Simple.  5 minute project.  Pretty.  Functional.

And also just for fun, I thought I’d share my love of Pinterest and show you 
a couple of other things I made after being inspired!

Still love, love, love these!  And I’ve got more planned for next year!
So delish, and so fun for a dinner party!  These are a hit!
So yum yummy!
So now do you love Pinterest?!

    Hi Joanna,
    I’m Catie, I just joined Canadian Design & Lifestyle Blogs and noticed you’re in Calgary too. I love the look of your blog. And your Pinterest projects are great. LOVE the frame. I’ve seen that on there too and thought about making one.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi and tell you I’m your newest follower! Pop by sometime and say hello. Have a great week. : ) ~ Catie

    I try to stay away from pinterest! 🙂 I spend way too much time on the computer as it is.
    Love your picture framed chicken wire.

    Pinterest is so much fun. Most of the time… i keep pinning ideas. I don’t know when will I actually implement them. You are doing a great job with the implementation part 🙂 Keep it going.

    I am hosting my first link-up party – Tea Time Thursdays @ Kreative Korner. Would be glad to see some of your awesome posts there. Hope to see you at the party.

    Hi Jo-Anna,

    I was just wondering how you secured the chicken wire to the back of your frame? Thanks.

      Thanks! I have an old screen door that I plan to remove the netting from and replace with chicken wire. I collect vintage earrings & necklaces so I thought that might be a cool way to display them in my bedroom.
