How long has it been going on? Maybe months but it’s possible that it’s been longer than that. I buy gifts at the last minute. Sometimes the day before the event. Other times I stop at the store on the way to the event. If I’m running late, then I buy something during the event.
Why do I do this? I have ideas for gifts. It’s not the choosing of the gift or spending money that causes me to procrastinate. I can do both quite well.
There is even a Pinterest board on my account for gift ideas. So I have no excuses for not buying or making gifts on time.
I also have a ton of photographs that I could give as part of the gift. This reminds me that my mom still has not hung up the pictures that I gave her two years ago. I think her issue is with hanging pictures. Maybe next time, I will hang them for her.
It’s just a matter of getting in the car and driving to the store. Oh yes, driving. That’s the part I don’t like. I should really look into buying more stuff online. Etsy perhaps.
Every fall, there is a lot of pumpkin everywhere. Are you a fan of it? Why or why not?
Last fall, I went the whole season without having a pumpkin cappuccino or a pumpkin latte. However, I did have a pumpkin hard cider. It was pretty good.
I also enjoyed many pumpkin pies and a few pumpkin rolls last year. I’m hoping to have a repeat of the pies and rolls.
While browsing through Pinterest, I have found some amazing looking recipes for pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin smoothies. I feel like I was totally missing out last fall. It will not happen again this fall. I swear by the Great Pumpkin that I will try more pumpkin recipes.
Who’s the last person you saw before reading this prompt? Whether it’s a family member, a coworker, or a total stranger, write a post about what that person is thinking right now.
Thoughts from Boyfriend:
I’ve been working. Then when I get home from work, my girlfriend has more work for me. When I’m done with that I have to go to my second job. I think I had a nap but I’m not sure. It could have been my imagination. Where am I right now? Probably at work.
I’ve seen that bed she wants me to build. Damn that Pinterest! We are going to need to find a person that knows about carpentry. It’s going to take at least a case of beer to get through her latest project. She still owes me a case from laying the carpet.
Here’s the link to the bed that she wants: http://barefootinbluejeans.com/diy-herringbone-bed-2/ I hope I get to sleep on it sometime.
She thinks this “Hey Girl” stuff is so funny. I know because she posts it to my Facebook like once a week.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how crazy are you about pinterest?
I love Pinterest in an off-the-charts kind of way. A few years ago, I heard from a few crafty friends about this website called Pinterest. I asked them what it was and if they liked it. My crafty friends said that I should look into it immediately. So I did. Three years later, Pinterest and I are still going strong.
In the beginning, I used it to pin scrapbooking layouts, destination vacations, crafts and funny pictures. Currently, I’ve been pinning food & beverages, quotes and stuff for my blog. I also have a board for dragons and “The Walking Dead.” It can be useful if you have a group of blogging friends with a group board. I’m fairly certain that individuals can start the group board and invite others. Repinning pins by other bloggers can be helpful – if they have things that you can fit into your boards somewhere. Pin items that make sense on your boards. I made an exception. I did make a new pet board, even though we have goldfish. This was only because some of the pet costumes were so cute.
See what I mean? 🙂 It makes me want to get a dog and dress it up for Halloween. Would that make me crazy? Maybe I could just borrow a dog for a few hours. Anyway . . . back to Pinterest.
Don’t underestimate the power of Pinterest. My blog and Pinterest page have much more traffic since linking them and also joining an online pinning group.
For the better part of today, I was not feeling creative. After a nap and a cup of tea, I thought I would give creativity another chance.
I found two projects on Pinterest that I thought I could do. They weren’t difficult to do. At the moment, I’m waiting on paint to dry so I can finish.
I will be posting the finished results tomorrow. My kid also did a painting that I think is sweet. 🙂 She gave her blonde sister some black hair because she couldn’t find yellow. Time for new paint. Mommy keeps mixing it all up. Time for a new palette also.
