Pinterest... and a boy LO

I've heard many times about it, but tried to ignore it. Then, Ali Edwards said she gave in... so I checked the site again and asked for invitation. My invitation came, but still didn't want to open an account there. I thought I have enough places I like or need to check online. And then there was Kelly Purkey sharing on her blog how much she loves Pinterest and that made me want to go back once again and... I'm hooked now!

I used to think, why would I want to go to there to save a picture of something i like, if I could save it right into my folder of favor it? But then, after browsing Pinterest a few times, I realized that it is such a great source of inspiration! There are SO many great ideas and links to different sites I would've never discovered otherwise. If you are looking for some inspiration - the Pinterest is the way to go. Any inspiration - home decor, flowers, cooking, reading, fashion - it's all there. You can find me HERE and start your own collection of inspiring ideas at Pinterest too.

This week I got a chance to use something I dreamed about for some time. My dearest friend let me use her Silhouette! It is an awesome tool! I just love it so much. The only negative side to it is that I might forget that I still have other work to do like cooking and cleaning...
I've cut a few items using Silhouette and am so impressed with the delicate job it does. . Here is one page I made using some elements cut with this tool (the word "bike", brackets and a bicycle icon were all cut with Silhouette):


I used Martha Steward glue pen to adhere these elements to the page. I know, one of the easiest way to glue these is by using spray adhesive, but I really don't like how it gets on your hands and you can't get it off. So, glue pen worked perfectly fine.


Sister you can have it now since it's about your boy.

I have another page that was missing a title for weeks, because I was too lazy to cut it out by hand. That is done now. I'm just trying to figure out if it really needs journaling and how to add it there if it does.



"My oldest came to me complaining how much she doesn't enjoy Social Studies class at school. I told her that History was always my least favorite subject in school. Than she found out that her daddy felt the same way about it too. Next day she comes over and says: "Since you both didn't like History, that makes me twice as much not liking it. So, if I don't get the best grade in that class, at least I have an excuse".



See you soon.

  1. Anya I love this layout, it is so special! You don't even have a 7 year old boy, but new exactly what to put in journaling.That is for sure Zhenini interests on the top of the list. How do you come up with that?! You must have googled it, or is it after all the neibor-baby sitting over the summer. Thank you so much!!!

  2. And Anya I like that bike a lot, very cute. (esli bi ya pitalas ego prikleit to tak rovno nikogda nepoluchilos bi!)
    Finally checked out this Pinterest you've been talking about. Looks interesting, but tempting, so afraid to get hooked to something like that, there just not enough time for everything! And why was there only one picture in "health"? ;-)

  3. He-he... I just started there. I came across that picture and decided to make a separate board for Healthy Foods. Eventually, there will be more and I planning to move it to top.

  10. Hey, Anya, I finally got that scrapbook paper organizer (the kind you have) and I absolutely love it!!! When I finally organized all my papers by color, I thought,wow, I have a lot of papers! But then I decided to look at your older posts from winter and found a picture of your paper stand, I no longer thought that I have a lot of papers, lol

  11. Alenka, History is much better than Algebra!!! I actually just took history this summer. It's weird how I absolutely can't stand algebra but I love my chemistry class!

  12. I'm back! For the last two days our internet service reminded me of the one we had at the hotel in SC...

    Anka congratulations on your new addition to the scrap corner! Where did you get yours? And yes, I do have quite a collection of pattern paper... maybe not as much as some people in the industry...

  13. Dear Alexander (or is it Alexandur), the way you started that comment on a previous post I actually thought you will be saying something about pictures... but you decided to descuss English language... I bet neither History of Algebra were your favorite subjects in school... :)))

    Thanks for stopping by!
