Fab Five at Five on Friday ~ Pinterest Edition

Have you checked out Pinterest?

{If you need an ‘invite’ I have several to give, just send me an e-mail.}

After finding a couple ‘to-die-for’ ideas, I decided to take this week’s Fab Five finds from Pinterest and share some of the fabulous things you can find on Pinterest.  On thing I love about the site is that you can search everyone’s pins, or just look at what your contacts are pinning.  Pinterest has defniilty become my main way of  keeping track of those craft and quilting ideas that I see while purusing the internet.  You can pin anything, from tutorials, things you want to buy, patterns you see, and even freebies!

Here are projects I have ‘found’ on Pinterest.  As always… Enjoy!

Kimberlee, Thank you for visiting!

Fabulous Five at 5pm on Friday ~ 6/24/2011

The best way to avoid the temptation of starting new projects is to list the ones you already have started. WIP {Works In Progress} is a Wednesday Link-up over at Freshly Pieced that lets you link-up your blog posts of progress {or non-progress} you have made on your WIPs. I love looking at others projects, and then I started looking at the number of my WIPs… yikes!

I started a list on the sidebar, and when you click on one of the projects, it will take you to the most recent post on that project. I have several more projects to add {not that I am admitting that I have more projects going on than I can handle} over the next couple weeks. Maybe this will encourage me to finally get that Wedding Ring quilt I cut out for my brother years {at least 6 years ago} finally finished. I can hope, LOL!

Now onto this week’s temptations.  Enjoy! 

Do you have a project that you really like this week?  Leave a comment with the link.  I would love to check it out!

~ About Me ~

I'm Kimberlee, the owner/creater of 'The Spunky Diva'. Here is a little about me... In addition to my love of blogging I adore all crafts, sewing, quilting, improving my non-existent cooking skills, and playing with my two girls. We have a 'collection' of animals around the place to keep us busy; two 'huge' dogs, a cat, kittens, several horses, and assorted wildlife. We live east of Austin, Texas, in the middle of farm country. Here at 'The Spunky Diva' blog I get to share daily life moments, fun crafts, sewing and quilting progress/finishes, and brag about my 'Babies'. Thank you for visiting and sharing some of your day with me!
