We all love Pinterest. I love pinning all the things. As I've explained before, I don't have Pinterest linked to the name "Mrs. MidAtlantic," because I wanted something I could do as a real person, to share with people in my real life... like my mom. So I'm on there, pinning away. Pinning ideas for home decor I'll never do. Pinning recipes that I might try, but maybe won't. Pinning ideas for crafts while convincing myself I'm crafty (I'm not).
I got really into pinning felt crafty things this fall. I was asked to decorate a Christmas tree for a local museum back home, based on a children's book. And while looking for felt crafty tree ornament ideas, I came across this:
So cute for a grandparent gift, right? And totally do-able? All I needed was one toddler hand, some cloth, some embroidery floss, and an embroidery hoop. I needed every supply but the toddler hand for my tree anyway, and I have two toddler hands at the ready most evenings. So I actually sat down and did a Pinterest craft!
And of course, now I can't actually pin my creation until Christmas is over. Because my mom follows my pins.
