52 Weeks of Pinterest

Pinterest is so incredibly addictive... but most of the time, the pins get collected and never used. It really is electronic hoarding. So I've decided to do 52 weeks of Pinterest. Every week, for a year, I will do something/eat something/make something that I've found on Pinterest. If I get really lazy or have a busy week, I may even count buying something I found via Pinterest.

This is also an effort to blog more. My initial thought was that I would do 100 Days of Pinterest... but the reality of me being able to blog every day for 100 days, well, that wasn't a reality at all. Instead I'll tackle one a week.

The Pinterest activity will hopefully be a jumping off point to blog about other random things too. If anyone wants to join me, I would love to have you! A little motivation never hurts.

Digital Scrapbooking - Shop Recommendation

This is a completely unsolicited plug for an Etsy shop I came across and love.

Sahlin Studios creates digital scrapbook designs for you to use in putting together your own digital scrapbooks. I love, love, love her work!

If you sign up for the newsletter, you will get a free digital scrapbook kit so that you can try it out and see if you like it.

I bought this Grunge Kit from her recently and made the below page for Marsh Man. It took about 5 minutes in Photoshop - all I did was stick a photo in another layer behind the grunge page, resize it to fit in the window, and add and rotate text in the notes box. Easy!

Here's another one:

I'm planning to make myself a photo book for our coffee table. Fun? Yes.

I enjoy making my own digital images as well, but I don't have the time that I would like to play around with it more. Plus, it's always fun to see what amazing things others have created. Someday I'll get around to posting a few of my own on here.
