Feel Empowered

In a way... I'm addicted!
We all have our vices. 
Right now in one place I can find tried and true recipes (with great pictures).  I can figure out how to make my porch look springy (with great pictures).  I can put together an outfit with clothes I have in my closet ( from great pictures of skinny models, half my age).  I can re-create greeting cards, design a garden, put together a great gift, plan a party, make delicious cupcakes, clean my house and learn how to put on perfect eye make-up. 
Pinterest... making people feel EMPOWERED yet incompetent, INSPIRED yet overwhelmed and just plain HUNGRY all the time.

Week #15~ LIFE'S simple pleasures ~ Pinterest
The first picture was something that really caught my eye as I was skimming through Pinterest when I first found it!  Great eye appeal for the garden.  Simple to do, I already had the rocks on hand from either finding them in the dirt or having used them in the bottom of a potted plant. The second picture is my attempt at the rock swirl in my own secret garden.
And from there I saw some artist who took their river rock and painted cute things on them!  All kinds of things from symbols and feathers, to realistic animals, from cute pet rock lady bugs to garden plant markers... and I got inspired once again.

Going to Pinterest is a lot easier than going to the library.  It's a few clicks away. 

Although I love the library and I love books..... sometimes you don't need a whole book on rock painting... one cute little picture says it all and if you are a jack of all trades and master of none.... you take your chances and your resources and make pretty stuff!!!  And some of that stuff you can give away because it truly is made from the he♥art, and then you wow your friends and family and they will be amazed with what you can do!

And you can sit back and smile with your little Pinterest secret.... realizing according to some statistics that they reach up to 4 million unique visitors daily, and the average visit is 14 minutes long.

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time!
