Pinspiration Link Up!!!


So today I'm hosting a linky party for our Pinterest inspired projects! Maybe you've tried a recipe there, or bought something you saw there, or did a project or craft you pinned. Maybe you used a decorating or party idea you saw. Anything you pinned will work!

I'll share my project first, then tell you how YOU can participate today!

I've used several recipes on Pinterest already, but since I've done recipes on my blog before, I decided to share about something else.

This past weekend was Melissa's shower for baby Caleb. I had seen a quote on Pinterest several weeks ago, and knew it would be perfect for a homemade gift. I admit, I didn't actually pin it, because I didn't want Mel to see it. But it inspired my gift.

Here's the image I saw on Pinterest:


I changed it up a little bit so the wording reflected adoption. I got this frame:


I liked the design but it was gold [hideous]. So I spray painted it black. Then, I printed my own version of the quote and a picture of Mel and Caleb onto some pretty scrapbooking paper, and voila! My gift:


{Note: I wasn't planning to use this as my Pinspiration post, so I didn't take great pictures of the process. Next time I'm be more deliberate. : )}


It was fun to make and fun to give. : )

OK, so here's how you can link up your Pinspiration post:
  • Click on "Click here to enter" below
  • Put your permalink in the linky below (link directly to your post, not just your blog.)
  • Add the linky box to your post so your readers can see all the projects!
  • Copy and paste the Pinspiration logo at the top on my post, and add it to your post!
Looking forward to seeing some ideas in action! I'm off to go make some of these! Your turn!!
