Pinning Inspiration

Winter is firm here in N.W. Ohio, as we have very, very, cold temps with forecast for even colder the next several days... with winds adding a chill that makes you aware you need to count your blessings for a warm and cozy shelter...
      The last couple days I have been sorting through my stashes of papers and objects saved for altered art cards, journals, tags, and decorating inspiration.. Need I say... what a mess it becomes when you save anything and everything you think may be a object you can use for inspiration at no cost... I have so yearned for a studio the past years but it is not going to happen here but I am thinking of making a small area maybe my own... which will be fine as I have learned many years ago we don't always get it, just cause we want it... I do think I can make a nice little small area, however, in the rec room...
      I have started PINNING and have found it a ideal substitute for magazines of which have become too expensive for me to purchase on a weekly or monthly basis...
      Today I have shared a idea I pinned that was originally pinned by Karian Weijers of a cart made from crates... I want to do this in the area I am thinking of creating... Will make a trip to the antique store as soon as the temps warm up some again to search for crates...
    Would love to know others that are PINNING as I love searching for inspiration to add to my boards..
    For today I am sending warm wishes to all my friends up North to stay safe and warm... We are blessed however we are not getting amounts of snow with the cold and winds blasts.... On days like this it seems to be a bit endless when everything is in a frozen state, unless we can find interest in cooking and baking {not good since it is Tom and I eating it} or pinning or creating...

I too have been reading and pinning on pinterest. This way I don't have to pay for a magazine plus look through the ads! Winter has been pretty mild here in Kansas, almost springlike most of the time. Have a blessed day, XoXo Pam

Yes, don't you just love Pinterest! There's so much to see and you're right, it saves a lot of money on expensive magazines, too! We still have snow, too, and temperatures will drop again this weekend, probably not as cold as in the US though. Stay warm, Ira x
