Moment of Truth!

The Pinterest Challenge is here.  OMG! What amazingly talented people.
First of all, thanks to Sherry @ Young House Love and Katie @ Bower Power for challenging each of us to step out and actually make one of our inspirations we have pinned on Pinterest. Take a look at what inspired these women and what they created and also, check out their co-host friends, Lana @ Making a House a Home and Emily Henderson .
While admiring all of the links I stumbled upon Amy @Keep'n The Sunny Side and her delightful pillow she made.  Since I'm obviously in pillow mode it caught my eye.  Just so happens, I have pinned this pillow to my Emma Claire board in hopes to make one for her. Cant's wait to get started.
  Isn't it awesome!
I love the red and turquoise don't you?
I also ran across Jaclyn @ Covered in Flour . She made this button monogram. This is a neat idea and she did an awesome job!
  Last year I made other things out of buttons for gifts.  One for a friend (using her late mother's buttons) and one for my Louisiana sis, Jennifer.
Elmer's glue crackling!!

 But Jaclyn has inspired me to try the monogram.

  1. Ah.. you're sweet, thanks for the mention. I too love that sunburst mirror and would love to make one.

  2. Thanks so much for the mention! We're in good company; the outpouring of creativity on the Pinterest Challenge has been amazing. I've already spotted a bunch more ideas I'd love to try.

  3. Thanks for the mention and the link, Victoria! You have a great blog and I can't wait to show myself around a bit. =D Your blog is so creative and I love your fleur-de-lis. I have a little obsession with French things in general and fleur-de-lis in particular, so that's right up my alley!
