Occasionally, I lie to myself. One of the most frequent lies I tell myself is that pinning things to my Pinterest boards while watching TV not only counts as multitasking, but it counts as being productive. It’s research for future baking, crafting, or artistic endeavors, and as such, is absolutely necessary to my creative process. Much better than simply laying on the couch covered in cats. Really. Since I spent most of yesterday daydreaming about curling up for a nap in piles of soft snowy linens, my Pinterest searching was mostly centered around beds and bedrooms; I even found this board, Where To Sleep, that had a number of images that very closely mirrored my daydreams. Fate?
Hey, at least I got a blog post out of it, right? That’s like multi-multitasking. What do you find yourself pinning these days?
As much as I love creating Pinterest inspiration boards, I love looking at what’s inspired other people. Seeing things from another perspective can open a whole new world of possibilities or make you redefine the way you classify different things. Right now I am really enjoying A Bohemian Wedding. No, I don’t plan on ever getting married again, but I could see a lot of these images being great for all sorts of life events. Like my big 30th birthday party in 2016, perhaps?
The breakdown: lots of flowers, billowy fabric, colorful garlands, feathers, ruffles, rustic desserts, and pretty shiny bits. Sounds like an awesome birthday party to me.

I may have a minor Pinterest addiction, but to be fair we made collages in college (inspiration boards) and we used them as a way to focus and organize all the ideas we had for a collection, so isn’t Pinterest one giant “book” of inspiration boards? Anyway, that is pretty much how I tackle projects now days. I updated my “Christmas” board this weekend, here are a few of the images helping me get into my holiday groove.
How are you guys getting ready for the big day?

I can’t stop looking at this beach Pinterest board entitled A. CASA DE IBIZA: How beautiful it is to do nothing and rest afterward. It makes me miss St. Augustine and my family. Even though I am really not a summer person I love Crescent Beach. How the blindingly white the sand is at midday. How gorgeously blue grey and cool the water is as you step off of the burning sand. How once you swim out a little you can float around in the swells and take deep breaths of the rich salty air. I even love the layer of salt that I have to clean off my glasses and rinse out of my hair every time I get out of the ocean.
Man, being landlocked and office bound really does suck some days.
