YAY!  I love seeing what people actually do with their pins.

 

I usually end up making a lot of the recipes

I made these the other night: http://www.savoringthethyme.com/2011/01/quick-and-easy-peanut-butter-granola-bars-via-how-sweet-it-is/  (Home made granola)

They turned out to be pretty tasty, next time I’m doubling the peanut butter and honey.  They were just a little dry.

Fiance made these one night :http://homeiswheretheholmansare.blogspot.com/2010/06/spicy-hawaiian-burgers.html  (Hawaiian burgers)

 

And I’ve gotten inspiration for wedding hair and makeup on there.

Yes!! My wedding decor for the ceremony site was 100% DIY and inspired by Pinterest….

I’ve been trying tons of recipes..last night Ricotta filled meatballs..and today tortilla soup…

Also, hairstyles for my 8 year old’s super long straight hair, and she loves trying nail polish ideas.

I’m addicted!

I love the recipes, but I especially love the facial mask recipes/face washes!

I made this one the other day:

Exfoliating Honey-Cinnamon Face Wash

There were no specific amounts, it just depends on how much you want to use.

1.) Honey
2.) Cinnamon
3.) Nutmeg

Mix together, put on face and scrub for 30 seconds to 1.5 minutes. Then wash off.

It made my skin feel smooth, but it smelled good, too!

My friend has a pin-testing blog called Spinsterest where she tests out pins she likes, usually cooking projects.

The recipes I want to try usually involve junk food ingredients that I can’t get in Australia, which bums me out. I saw a really yummy looking Reese’s Cup brownie thingy thing and thought it looked soooo good. I can’t remember the last time I had a Reese’s Cup! But no Reese’s Cups here, unfortunately, so no brownie thingy things for me. 🙁

I made this chalkboard from an ugly mirror I found inspired from something kind of similiar I saw on Pinterest:

I also made these vases for the reception. They’ll have lights in them:

@SaraP2012:  Most of the best candy isn’t available in Australia. There’s one place here in Melbourne called USA Foods and they import some of the good stuff, but it is very expensive. I only buy stuff from there if I can’t come up with any good substitute or am really just dying for something from home. For example, you can’t get graham crackers here, either, so for that I would fork over the cash. I did once find Butterfingers in a specialy grocer in the import section… for $3 a bar. No, they weren’t king size. But I bought three of them anyway and had them for supper.
