Jean Purse

28 Feb

Spinning for 50 repins

Described as “If only I could sew”

Pinterest fact:  One commenter provided an email address for her grandmother who makes and sells these while another commenter mentioned that her 6 year old made one at camp.

rule of thumb:  if grandmothers and 6 year olds are the experts on the project you’re eyeing, then maybe you should try another project.

i’d like to just quote one pinner who said “it’s got everything! red and denim! woop woop!”  woop, woop indeed.


Tampon Lights

16 Feb

Spinning for 1 day

Described as “Tampon holiday light decorations!”

Pinterest fact*:  One pinner pinned this off of our “D.I.Why?” board to her “Crafty-kins” board.

this is the one situation where i am firmly against red holiday lights


*one pinner had this pinned to her “March 2012 Sister Supplies Board” – a board promoting a donation drive that provides feminine hygiene products to women who would otherwise not be able to afford them.  it’s a pretty cool idea – i never even thought about the fact that some people have to go without these.  for more information about the drive click here, or to follow this board and her other charity driven boards on pinterest click here.

Vintage Photo Jar

2 Feb

Spinning for 5 bazillion repins

Described as “DIY Vintage Photo Mason Jar”

Pinterest fact:  If there is a mason jar and the word “vintage” involved, it’s going to be a home run on pinterest.
