Pinterest Inspiration

Sorry guys. Gonna do this a little different this week. I did not get anything made this week (besides my menu and that is boring).

A little boy who is very close to one of my dear friends had a terrible accident and has been laying unresponsive in the hospital since Sunday. Consequently, that is all I have been thinking about since I heard. I do not know this little boy. Only that he is 9 years old, he has a brother and a sister and a mom that are very shaken up by this. It does not look good for this little boy. So, if you are the praying type please send some his way. If you don't pray that is fine, please send some positive thoughts instead. Also, hug your little ones tight tonight and every day. Life is so fragile. Anything can happen. Tell your loved ones how much you love them and don't hold anger in your heart.

Ok, enough of that. I am going to share some of what has been inspiring me on Pinterest this week.

I have to find a couple cool cakes for upcoming birthdays and I thought this one might be good:

How cool would it be to make these plates as Christmas gifts? Or even one for yourself..or me..

I LOVE this lamp from Not Just a Housewife.


She is seriously talented! I have had this on my list of things to do for months. I am a bit intimidated though..


Chandeliers are hot right now and this one is no exception.

It just so happens that I picked up a ton of these shells at a yard sale this summer and they are just waiting for me to make this. But if you don't have shells you can fake it with wax paper.


How much would the hostess love you if you showed up for your Thanksgiving dinner with this as a gift?

And because one of my favorite pastimes involves food here is where I will leave off. Seriously!! Chocolate, caramel, and bacon? This looks too yummy.

 Now I am off to spend some quality time watching the fam play video games:)

I made that kitkat cake for my husbands birthday a few years ago! It was a HUGE hit. Gave us all a nice sugar high also. :) that sweet little boy is in my thoughts and prayers.
