GREAT IDEAS Worth Sharing On A Monday Morning!!

You all know I have a Pinterest board, in fact some of you follow me, and it is so fun to see you not only on my blog,but over at Pinterest.

I have a pin-board marked, “Great Ideas!” for those who have not visited me there, just click on the Pinterest symbol on my sidebar!

Today I thought I would share with you some ideas that I think are worth sharing to start off your week!………

Make a light switch plate time capsule!! This would be so fun to do in your child's room so they could read about themselves when they get older!!

I love this idea!! Why not utilize all the space available in our homes.

Adorable!! I think this would be so cute as as surprise in your little one’s lunch box or to have for a play date.

With the Holidays coming upon us we just might need a hostess gift! What a fun presentation this would make! To make it special how about having their own personal monogram placed on the sleeve. I think a trip to Goodwill  is in order, even I could make one of these!!!

I love cutting boards and this idea is one I just might try. If you go to this blog, Unexpected Elegance, there will be a tutorial on how to transfer an image onto a wooden cutting board!!

Did you know that there is a  Krylon spray paint to make an object look like a mirror? I did not know that until I saw this tutorial on how to make your own mercury glass by spraying with water first and then using the spray paint!! I have not seen this in person, but the picture looks pretty darn good to me!! I think it might be worth a try! If it is good enough for Martha, it is good enough for me!……….

These are just a few of the Great Ideas I have discovered! It is a brand new week and I am looking forward to a GREAT WEEK!!!!  I am wishing you all a Great week as well! Just remember too………..

“ Enjoy the Process!”

Did you enjoy your weekend? I had a great one and remembered your words telling me to rest. I did it! :-)

I don't have pinterest yet, but I'm always there, looking around...So fun, right?

Talking about fun, this post is great! I love, love, love the kids' lunch idea. I need to do that for my little ones. They'll adore it!

Have a Blessed Week, sweetie!

Kathysue I love to see what you pin as I follow you on Pinterest. I just started myself a few weeks ago and love it! You are welcome to follow along on my boards as well.

Did you know there is a Pinterst weekly party? I just met the lady named Natasha and linked up my current post. You should too. This is all great inspiration. I love the little butterfly idea. Cute!

I'm loving the french cuff wine bottle holder and it may be the answer to holding on a loved blouse with french cuffs that got a stain on the front!

Hi Kathysue, These are all great ideas and I especially like the time capsule. Between blogs, Pinterest and Houzz I no longer have a social life! They are all highly addictive. I am on my way to follow you on Pinterest.
