My husband accuses me of being addicted to Pinterest. Anyone else have the same issue? It is a great resource for anything from sewing, which I utilize the most, recipes, home decor, education, gardening....and the list goes on and on. It is really easy to sit at the computer instead of getting projects completed.
Recently I used pins from my sewing board to reproduce AND complete two projects. Since my daughter just moved into a new place, she pinned curtains and asked me to make them for her. So, I deviated from my normal niche of smocking and dove into home decor.
Here's the link to the tutorial provided for Anthropologie style curtains.
I found my project to be very easy and inexpensive--great for rental property!

My niece also pins on Pinterest and recently showed me an ipad cover she had found. After she sent me this link, http://craftsanity.com/2010/05/craftsanity-on-tv-make-an-easy-fleece-ipad-cozy-tutorial/ I set to work on her project.
This is how it turned out!

So, yes, I guess you could say I'm addicted to Pinterest. I do spend a lot of time on the computer "researching". Just remember to put those pins to use in a project!
