Corn and my next pinterest project (I know its a few days late)

26 Aug

So in my last post I shared my pintrest pic of the week, the grilled in husk corn… It was actually a success… I  think that might be how we do it from now on, it was incredibly juicy and delicious. The seasoning didn’t work as well, I would have liked a bit more spice since the corn was so sweet. It was really good though. 

Now for the next pinterest project, since my boyfriend will be moving back to Chicago ( I unfortunately have to stay behind for school) But i will be splitting my time between the city and campus so its kinda a joint effort as far as moving and decorating goes. He wants new bedding and I am obsessed with anthropologie bedding.Specfically the knotted duvet they had online.

I found this tutorial, it’s Kojo’s tutorial for Anthropologie inspired Knotted bedding, It seems do-able but time consuming so this project will span a few weeks. Basically I’m gonna buy a plain duvet cover and a kind size sheet set, make the knotted squares and quilt the hell out of them, but since my boyfriend an I each have a dog (a mutt and a puggle) I want something other than white since it would be white for exactly 2 seconds, so I plan to either dye the sheets or just buy the color if I can find it, I’m thinking a gray color… So I am gonna jump into the project this next week. since im off most of the time. and need a project. I’m really excited to start sewing again and excited to start such a cool project. Hopefully you all enjoy the next few weeks of documentation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a confession

14 Aug

Hello,
My name is Kaitlin and I am a Pinterest addict.
I am obsessed with this site. I swear I probably pinterest more than I do anything else on the Internet including YouTube, Facebook, or twitter and definitely studying lol. It’s just so full of pretty and seemingly simple things. I pin everything from nail art to wedding inspiration (no I am not engaged). I know I’m not alone in pinning recipes I won’t make, organization tips that I won’t use, and clothing I can’t buy. It’s never ending. So as a result I have decided that every week I want to pick something on pinterest and actually do it… Or attempt it.
I also plan to post about it. Pictures and all. I just need a project to start this week. Maybe something easy to start. Like one of the million nail art tutorials I’ve pinned since my nails seriously need to be done, I’m embarrassed by how gross they are. Like I want to wear mittens around because people might shun me bad.
