Obsession - Pinterest and My General Incompetence


Are you on Pinterest?


I am in love. I am obsessed. I am consumed. I am depressed.


This website is my new bulletin board for inspiration in design, style, cooking...anything you can imagine. Not only can I pin my own favorite things onto it, I can follow others who also have great taste!


It's wonderful. I love spending minutes upon hours just browsing the great photos and getting ideas for dinner, for dressing Maya, for that fabulous updo that I could recreate on myself when the queen invites me to a royal ball.


Unfortunately, it also reminds me of what a loser I am. 


If I had more money, I would buy that!


If I had more time, I would cook that!


If I had any talent, I could totally sew that!


It's brutal on the self-esteem. But I cannot look away. It's like day-dreaming along with a million photos. People also post inspirational posters, so that helps. 




Perfection. 


But I really do like this one. I'm thinking of nailing it to Maya's headboard.




But she'd probably ignore it. I'd better just tattoo it on her arm instead. 


See what I mean? You go in admiring adorable little mushroom pincushions....you come out inking your daughter. Inspiration is a slippery slope, my friends.


But, if you join, people let me know so I can follow you!


Also, a small request, if you enjoy reading my random musings, please "follow" me. I only have 9 followers and it's murder on my OCD. Every day I think, "Will today be the day I enter the double-digits?" I've thought that for about 200 days now. I can't sleep at night! 


Help me sleep, people!!!


And thank you for reading!
