It's Going to be a Pinteresting Summer!

I love summer and the break from "normal" life.  I have been stockpiling plans and ideas, from Pinterest of course, that I'd like to accomplish.  Some for my house and some with my daughters for their homes.  I  am not quite sure how much I'll get done yet since we are awaiting a new grandbaby too, but we'll see and the record will be here.  I'm not a photographer, but my trusty iPhone will assist.  Here we go...

So far, project #1 is done.  It was quick and easy and I LOVE it!  It's a magnetic pin dish.  I found a wonderful Royal Albert shell-shaped dish at a yard sale for 75 cents, used glue dots to secure some super-strong magnets to the bottom and then put in my pins!  Shopping took longer than completing the project which was done in less than 5 min!  {Now the truth is that I tried superglue to adhere the magnets first and it was a flop.  The DOTS worked like a charm.}


I had the glue dots on hand and bought the strong magnets at the grocery store.

One of the next plans involves my school classroom filing cabinets.  They are ancient of days and pretty ratty looking.  Here, take a look.

Imagine them yellow.  I saw this on pinterest....

Now lest you think I have no imagination since I want mine yellow too, I will post other photos of my classroom when these are complete and you'll see that yellow was a reasonable choice. :)

Some projects will be big, some will be small, but hopefully all will be fun!  Happy Summer!!
