Something about Pinterest that just inspires me to create things. It also is something that can keep you pinned to the couch repinning your heart out till 2am. I have come across so many cool ideas that I never ever would of thought of doing on my own. I have made a few things but nothing spectacular just yet. I have made a few pages of a quiet book for a Holiday gift for my 3 year old. A few Homeschooling items. I am really ready to go bigger though. I want to start with something that wont be to daunting but yet cool enough to convince my husband to help me with future projects. So my proposed plan for the coming week is combining these two projects. For our schoolroom.

The first project is The "Nail and String letters"
You can read about how to accomplish this on this Blog

I plan to spell out the word "READ" to go above our window, under the window is where project #2 comes in. After a trip to Pittsburgh to hit IKEA to buy these spice racks.

How cute is that! I bought 3 of them but I plan to put 3 across right in reach for my youngest "reader" The shelves where super easy to put together it took me all of about 10 minuets and that was with a 3 year old "helping" and a kitty who just has to be on my lap every time I sit down. I can't wait to get this project going. I will post our finished project as soon as it's done. What are some Pinterest projects you have done or are planning to do?
