How addicted to Pinterest are you? I still have to laugh because I talked about Pinterest in one of my very first posts (before everyone was doing it~) and one of the commentors said they didn't think it was a very good idea to share like that, it was over exposure. Just try to find someone who doesn't pin these days.
I try to be a bit judicious on my pinning though, only pinning those things that truly inspire me to create something similar or that spark a totally new idea.
Like many of you out there, I've been doing a good job of pinning, just not the follow through. So, I'm trying to change that with what I'm calling my "Pinspired Creations".
First up are some beautiful handmade candles just like these ones from my good bloggy friend Andrea over at The Cottage Market .
I had a candle making kit that's been sitting in my closet since the beginning of time so I just got that out, melted down some wax and poured it into some pretty crystal pieces I found at the second hand shop.
For mine, I also scented them with some incredible natural oils that I picked up in Egypt ages ago, and then I gave them a little sprinkle of Martha Stewart glitter (I got the big pack for Christmas!! Look out world, here's comes the sparkle!).
I'm giving a couple away as gifts but I just have to keep at least one for myself. So pretty, but oh so easy. What do you think? I hope it inspires you to try some of your own~
Thanks for the inspiration Andrea!
