Practice makes Pinterest

             (Apparently one most fold the edges in prior to tieing?)

Pinterest. What a beautiful place. A place of dreams, babies, food, and attractive men. Life doesn't get any better, am I right?
So while I scrolled through what I think is my future life I found
this DIY pillow and was like...HECK WOMAN DO THAT! So I did what I am now calling a "pinterest trial" AKA try to make pretty things on pinterest. So I went to the store, bought some happy fabric and kidnapped a pillow from a closet and went at it.
 2 things I discoverd during this trial:
1.) Pins are friends, not food! (Alright the food thing makes no sense but I had to add in the Nemo reference.)
2.) FOLD the edges before you tie the pillow!!! My pillow is still struggling from my non-folding transgression.
3.) I need a manicure
Overall however, I would give this pinterest trial an 8 out of 10. It turned out cute...but not pinterest cute. Curse pinterest and it's unrealistic expectations on my life.


  1. Reading your blog makes me genuinely happy. Really though. Don't ever stop.

  2. Ali. Seriously right back at you. You make me want to have babies. Because yours is so cute.
