|P is for pinning!|
Launched in 2010, it didn't take long before Pinterest made a splash! In January 2012, the site reported 11.7 million unique users, making it the fastest site in history to break through the 10 million unique visitor mark!
As you can imagine, Pinterest is right up Heather's alley. Between blogs and baby, she barely has time to create her boards anymore! But when the "It's Craft Time at the Looney Bin" feeling strikes, it's a sure bet that the inspiration is from a Pinterest board.

One night while trolling Pinterest, Heather stumbled across this pin (on left) and clicked on it. The picture led to the Brown Paper Packages blog with a great write up on how one mother redecorated a plain footstool into a cherished family footprint memory....and it sparked an idea!
Our plain-Jane footstool got a makeover with the perfect touch of memory! Check it out:
We figured when we were old & senile we may not remember whose footprint was whose so Heather used die cut letters for the names and added the date.
A little left over scrapbook paper dressed up the legs and with a couple of coats of Modge Podge, our little footstool was suddenly fancy!
Ok, now back to Pinterest to see what other great ideas are out there!
