This week's Spin Cycle is on Obsessions. And automatically I start singing that song from the 1980s...you know...this one:
See, now that's going to be in your mind, too. (Evil laugh) Anyway, Gretchen, you couldn't have piked this topic at a more ironic time because I have a new obsession.
I made fun of people who used it in the past. I was all "what the hell is that all about? What's the point?" That is, until about a month ago, when I had my first taste. And I was hooked.
Seriously, there is a lot of good stuff out there. I could literally spend forever just browsing and getting ideas. Holidays, gifts, organization tips, especially the organization tips. I've used these gems since joining Pinterest (one to organize Tupperware lids and the other to organize all that clutter in my kitchen and on the table):
I heart this site. And these are just a few of the things I have tried. Did you know you can make your house smell really good by boiling orange peels with cinnamon? Because it does. I made my Mom a Mother's Day present of coasters you can make with small picture frames and wine corks. And I made a cute little sign for our front door saying "Please Remove Your Shoes" with cute little back and white pictures as a passive way of getting people to take their shoes off when they come in our house because it drives both me and T crazy. I'm working a couple other projects, but seriously...I'm hooked. I've got it bad.
I've found some great ways to trick Miss Aubrey into eating her veggies. The other day I tried out some cupcakes using Bisquick and veggies. She ate them up. I found an awesome recipe for buffalo chicken wraps, for pizzadillas, and for some grilling recipes. I'd love to try some of the desserts I've seen on there, but....
T laughs at me every time I say "you know, I have this idea of something I saw on Pinterest..." But even he can't say he hasn't benefited from it. Cleaning tricks, organizing ideas...I'm all over this like white on rice.
But it's a fine line, I tell you. A fine line.
So stop by Gretchen's and see what other Spinners have to share! Maybe we can all join a 12 step program together.
