I Reorganized My Pinboards and Why You Should Too

Pinterest recently added a new feature to pinboards – sections!  It was, in my opinion, a much-needed addition.  The addition of sections has allowed me to condense the number of pinboards on my account from over 50 down to 25. The best example of this was my fashion boards.  Thanks to sections, I’ve gone from Read More …

Who Wore it Better: Halloween Edition

Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain to everyone out there in blog-land!

WIP Wednesday – Star Blocks

I made a bit more progress on my Fuzzy Duckling quilt over the weekend.  I managed to make time to complete 4 more of the star blocks, giving me 5 finished.  That’s exactly half of them!  The only problem was it took me about 3 hours to cut and piece them all. I seem to Read More …
