Dear West Virginia...

I'll always be a WV girl at heart.  I love going back, and it always tugs at my heart each time I have to leave.  This article is written by a native West Virginian who also left home.  It struck a cord with me, and so I thought I'd share.  Enjoy!

I made it...

For some reason I've been hit by the crafting bug lately... maybe the reason I haven't kept up with any of my blogs.  (actually I've been too busy with LIFE to do that!)

Anyway, I've become found of a site called Pinterest, maybe you've heard of it.  :o)  I find myself on there most of the time at work.  Bad, I know.  Sometimes I just need a breather, or something to entertain myself with. That said, I've come across several things that I like and have attempted to make them.  Two of those have been scarves.  I made a really pretty flower scarf (post to come later), and ended up making 5 so far, and I still have another to make that was commissioned by a friend.  And then there was a rope scarf that I saw, that I thought would be fun to try.  So I made it:

It wasn't hard, but did take a while to get everything cut and separated.  I've worn it twice now, and both times gotten compliments.  I really like the one that I saw on Pinterest (source link above), it is made of much more muted tones, but I like the way mine turned out.  I'm even thinking of making another one with just the blue and green yarns.  I might even get a couple other shades of blue and green to add to it.  We'll see...

I'm addicted... that's the first step right? Admitting when you have a problem.  Thing is, I like this habit.
Recently I was introduced to Pinterest.  Yes, I'm a little late jumping on this bandwagon, but I don't have a lot of time to play on the internet anymore.  I'll check my facebook on my phone before I go to bed, but other than that and email, I don't do much.  That is until I found Pinterest.

I find myself heading over to the site a couple times a day to take a quick breather during work.  I haven't gotten the complete hang of things, but there isn't much to do other than look at pictures, pin what you like and want to keep and ignore the other stuff.  But I've found some pretty great stuff, and I have some ideas in my head that I'd like to put into reality.

I'm really excited about these:

I ordered them today... from WALMART!!!  Yep, Walmart.  That was the cheapest place I could find boots like these.  I don't spend much money on my shoes, other than tennis shoes that is.  Anyway, my inspiration for these boots came from Pinterest, and these styles:
You may see me wearing something similar soon.

Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement on my latest purchase.  Hopefully I'll be able to ease up on my Pinterest addiction...  or maybe not!
