Do you Pinterest?

I have a Pinterest account like eleventy million other people in the world and I'm starting to think it's evil. EVIL I tell ya!

I should have ignored the allure of so many wonderful ideas all in one nice, neat, little, magical place.

I mean really...I have like 7 bazillion things pinned and even if I made one thing a day for the rest of my life I would never be able to do them all!  Even if I did have time, who has the money to do all those fun crafts, buy all those fabulous clothes, decorate their home to look like a pottery barn catalog, and go to all those awesome vacation spots all over the world? Not this girl!

Ok ok, I've made some things that I've pinned and even put my own twist on them to make them easier or less expensive.  My oldest daughter is totally in love with all things mustache, so when I saw this....
I knew I had to make it for her.  Except, I don't have a cartridge for my cricut that has a mustache shape.

So, on one of my many shopping trips to Hobby Lobby before Christmas, I picked up some mustache stickers and some alphabet stickers.

Let's face it, she isn't going to love mustaches forever so it didn't have to be made with products that would last til the end of time. So, this is my version.....
I think it's totally adorable and she loves it! I got a mason jar that was completely smooth which I didn't know they made....did any of you know they made plain ones or have I just been living under a rock??

This thing was super fast to put together! It seriously took me more time to pick out the font of alphabet stickers than it did to peel and stick those little suckers on the jar.  

So, do you pinterest? If so, what do you do when you make something you have pinned? Do you just leave it on your board?  Do you delete it? Do you move it to a special board that sports all the awesome things you've made so you can look like a crafting queen? I'm not sure what to do with mine.

Let me know what you do.....
