Project Pinterest - Cake Stand Perfume

are you addicted to pinterest like i am? seriously, it's made me a more organized and motivated. i actually remember recipes i want to make and diy things i want to attempt. my boards are getting pretty full.

what the heck is pinterest?

well, according to the site itself, "Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes."

which brings me to the first of (hopefully) many pinterest inspiration posts. i am going to take something i have pinned and put my spin on it. it could be a recipe i have been dying to make, (can someone please explain why almost all of the recipes i have pinned are desserts?) an outfit i want to recreate (it might get me out of my current yoga pants and hoodie rut), a house improvement, or a diy item (lord help me, i might even attempt to get crafty).

if you don't know what pinterest is, head on over here and check it out. warning: this site is highly addictive! i first joined several months ago. E was away on travel and i stayed up way past my bedtime perusing pins and creating my boards. but it's totally worth it! all my ideas are now in one place!

if you need an invite, just drop me an email and i'll try and hook you up (i have a limited number of invites i can personally give out - first come, first serve). if you are already a pinterest addict, check out my boards or follow me here.

my first pinterest inspiration is a relatively simple one. i found this one via (fashion blogger extraordinaire) and re-pinned it because it seemed like an easy way to organize my perfume collection.

the cake stand is courtesy of my wonderful sister-in-law, K. it actually doubles as a chip and dip plate too if you flip it over. the best thing is, i get some use out of it when i am not baking cakes or inhaling chips!
