Project pinterest

Ok, now that I've proven to myself that I can keep this blog going for at least a month, it's time for a new step in my blogging-life: a recurring subject, a subject-series, you name it :-) To make it easy for myself I'll just start it on a monthly basis and we'll see how that goes :-) My first blog series will be........


*drumroll*



In this series I will let myself be inspired by Pinterest to scrap, cook a meal, bake a pie, do my hair, my nails, et cetera. As many of you, I could browse around Pinterest for days on end, but I rarely really use any of my repinned images. And that's a shame, because there's so much good stuff outthere!

To kick off this first month of Project Pinterest with a *bang* I chose three things to be inspired from:-) 

September Project Pinterest #1: Coconut Shrimp Curry

And this is how my project turned out:


I changed the rice for Orzo (a type of pasta). Furthermore I used different types of herbs. I loved the taste of this dish, but it was a little too liquid to my liking. This may be due to the difference in the metric systems:-)


September Project Pinterest #2: Layout with a (misted) sunburst

And this is how my project turned out:

I loved the misted burst and to stay 'on trend' I made an ombre burst :-) Love how it turned out. The wood veneer stars have to be my favourite embellishment ever (as you can see). I love all things stars! And ofcourse I was geeked about getting to use one of my fab KP stamps :-)


September Project Pinterest #3: Mr Huey's color charts

And this is how my project turned out:


Love how this turned out and it's really handy!

I hope you'll follow me on this Pinterest journey:-)
