After I registered, I admit, I didn’t use it for a long time because, honestly, I just didn’t get it. What did I need virtual bulletin boards for? It really didn’t make any sense to me.
Then things changed.
I got pregnant and I kept finding all of these great things I wanted to get for the baby.
So, I took the time to figure our Pinterest and was turned into an instant addict!
Also, like many others before me, once I got the hang of Pinterest I wanted to learn how to use it to better my business like I was seeing so many others do.
Enter Pinfluence: The Complete Guide to Marketing Your Business with Pinterest by Beth Hayden.
A book that can teach me how to do something I have been trying to figure out for months!
This book teaches you how to create a powerful Pinterest profile, your Pinterest Brand Strategy, set up boards, pin and repin images, and get into conversations within Pinterest. It also offers valuable marketing techniques on how create great content and optimize websites and blogs for pinning and soooo much more!
So far, I have applied a few techniques and I have seen a difference. Once I get a little more free time, I am hoping to really get into it and grow my brand and network using Pinterest.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book at no cost to me in order to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
In the past week, my Pinterest addiction has really developed. Not only has mine, but I managed to suck my sister into the black hole that is Pinterest as well!
Since I am now an official addict I thought I would join in The Vintage Apple’s Pinteresting Wednesday Meme. So for my first Pinteresting Wednesday I have decided to share with you 10 of the awesome crafts I have found thanks to Pinterest and I want to craft them!
So, here we go……………………………

Since the arrival of Ellie last month, for some strange reason I have been on edge.
Things have become so bad that I am having a hard time sleeping.
If it wasn’t for things like my DVR, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter I would probably lose my mind.
Even on the night when I do make it into the bedroom and lay down to go to sleep I find myself constantly checking on Ellie.
Every little noise she makes while I am sleeping wakes me up.
Every time she spits up in her sleep, I am right at her side.
Every time she is quiet for an extended period of time, there I am making sure she is still breathing.
And….it’s not just Ellie that is doing this to me.
When I hear strange noises in the house I freak out.
I can’t have any blinds open after the Alex goes to work because I constantly feel like someone is watching me.
I have to check multiple times before I go to bed that all the doors and windows in the house are locked.
See….I am losing my shit.
Oh and when I do finally manage to gather my shit long enough to catch a few zzz’s I wake up over and over and over again either because I hear something or because I have some crazy, screwed up dream that jolts me awake.
Again, I admit it….I am losing my shit.
Over the last few days, things have become worse.
Friends of ours lost their daughter just shy of 37 weeks gestation.
Ellie was born just shy of 37 weeks gestation.
Their daughter didn’t make it, but ours did.
Of course, my heart is aching for them.
I have cried multiple times for them.
I have held Ellie closer, tighter and have had moments where I am afraid to put her down.
It has become so bad that I rarely allow Ellie to leave my sight.
I am at the point where I am so exhausted I don’t know what to do because no matter how hard I try I just can’t get a decent night’s sleep.
I guess it is time to see the doctor…..
Pass the Xanax please.
It is hard to believe that I am already 25 weeks pregnant.
I think what makes it so hard this time around is that I have somehow kept my weight gain to a minimum – right now I’ve gained right around 10lbs, which for me is damn good considering that my last 3 pregnancies I had probably gained almost 30lbs by now.
What can I say?
Everything with little baby Ellie seems to be going well other than the fact that she is seriously stubborn. I am keeping my fingers crossed that at my next appointment on October 21st that she will be a little more cooperative and let us see her.
In the meantime, I have been looking a some pretty cute things that I can’t wait to pick up for her. It’s been so long since I was able to go in the infant girls department and purchase all that is girly but I plan on doing a lot of it.
I have also commissioned my friend Amber to create some cute little hats for bean and then of course a few for the other kids as well. I can’t wait until they are done because I know they will be adorable!! (Be sure to check out Amber’s creations in her Etsy shop.)
For now, here are a few things that I can’t wait to get my hands on for Ellie!
