What did we ever do with out Pinterest

09/20/2012 - Author: Natasha Phillips

When the craze of pinterest started I was pretty sceptic. I thought it was probably a waste of time to find projects/ideas that one would never complete. After a while though I started ‘pinning’ and am happy to report that I have tried or done 75% of everything I have pinned. I don’t spend a lot of time on the site, just usually when I need and idea and am trying to avoid what really needs to be accomplished in my day. ūüôā

My make-up center has always been a little bit of a mess. I don’t wear make-up very often which is why it probably doesn’t stay very organized. Anyway I was bored one day and started looking for ideas on pinterest. I found a really cool idea that used magnets attached to the back of your makeup and then stuck onto a cooking sheet. My baking sheets are to important to me and I wanted something that would look a little bit like wall decoration as well, so I varied the idea just a bit.

I used a white canvas board, covered with a material that I liked, and then used¬†Velcro¬†to attach my makeup to the board. I am very happy with the results and Elliott hasn’t gotten into my makeup since. If you need to organize your makeup or are just bored, this is a pretty quick, (it took me about 30 minutes for both boards), and fun way to fill your time. Oh, and if you are not a fan of pinterest you should check it out…you might be surprised. ūüôā

Fun With Home-made Play-dough

08/11/2012 - Author: Natasha Phillips

Growing up my mom would make us¬†play-dough¬†from scratch and I always thought she was crazy, until the other day. Elliott was just being a¬†handful¬†and I was¬†running¬†out of ideas to keep him busy. Suddenly the idea of¬†play-dough¬†popped into my head. I didn’t have any on hand but I did have flour, food coloring, salt, and water on hand. About 10 minutes later a fresh batch of¬†play-dough¬†was on Elliott’s tray and he was busy!! I was always jealous of other kids that had the the ‘real’¬†play-dough¬†because of the way it felt, but I think that was just my childhood mind. The¬†play-dough¬†I made for Elliott was a little softer than the product from the store but really not much difference and it cost about 20 cents to make!! Elliott had so much fun with his new toy he played with it for over and hour that morning and a hour after his nap. Since then both he and Boyd have played with it every day. I now know why mom would make it as often as she did. You can find the play-dough recipe on my ‘recipe’ page or click on the play-dough recipe link and it will direct you right to the recipe. I hope that your family enjoys it as much as mine is and has.
