How has Pinterest inspired you?

I noticed that since I’ve found Pinterest, I am drawn to thrift stores.  I was known to check out the Goodwill store, after all I found my son’s solid wood desk there for $25 several years ago.  I also find myself looking for thrift stores when I’m out and about.

The difference now, is that I look at items in a different way.  Pinterest has definitely reignited my interest in crafting.  I will admit that I use Pinterest to get ideas.  But that’s ok, because those ideas inspire me to try different things.

Last week I found  2 wooden candlesticks for 49 cents each and a wonderful wooden frame for $2.99.  The candlesticks will get a coat of spray paint and the frame will probably stay as is with the addition of a monogram, and I’m thinking of hanging it on my front door instead of a wreath.

My sister, on the other hand, has been inspired to bake cupcakes.  She has always loved to bake, whether it was bread, cookies, cakes, etc.  but since Pinterest, she has just taken her talent to a new level.  She recently did all the baking for her son and future daughter-in-law’s bridal shower.
