Pinterest #20

Whew! I'm glad it's Friday. Last week was my spring break, and having all that extra time made this week seem jam-packed by comparison. I realized that by not going to class I essentially gained another whole workday (or estate sale shopping time, whatever), and I definitely missed it this week when I didn't have it. I felt like I was just playing catch up.

Thankfully it's almost time to relax! To get that started, let's see what I found on Pinterest.

Since I recently scored that sweet vintage luggage, I could turn one of the suitcases (or two) into a handy craft organizer:

How gorgeous is the back of this retro cocktail dress? I can't stop staring at it. Instead of writing the rest of the post, I keep scrolling back up and wishing I had some fancy spring parties to attend. Le sigh.

Let's make a list of the great features in this room: high ceilings, a giant window, exposed beams, and oh, a library ladder for your house!

This is another one of those projects that makes you smack your forehead and wonder why you didn't think of it: DIY business cards made from gift tags.

And finally this print is, indeed, awesome:

So how was your week? Anybody else feeling the post spring break burn? What neat things did you find on Pinterest? Any big weekend plans? (We're doing nothing and I'm stoked!)


  1. I love the business cards..they're a simple good and funny idea! I'm happy too...i'm looking forward to finish my last hours of the week and have a relaxing week this period I deserve it!happy weekend:-)

  2. OMG...I love that suitcase organizer!!! Brilliant!

  3. Great Pinterest finds! Love that suitcase organizer!

  4. I love those business cards! Hmm...idea forming! I used to love having vacation breaks from school and hated when they were over. I got so much more stuff done that I actually wanted to do. And perhaps I can talk the hubs into raising our ceiling for a room like that??

  5. I'm loving that luggage organizer! And those gift tag business cards? Definitely making some to use as merch tags for the shop. Annnnd, I want that print!

  6. I love all these things. I definitely need to try the suitcase craft organizer; think that's what's been missing from my life. :)

  7. I would love to turn one of my suitcases into an organizer! I think I NEED to do that, for my own sanity. :)

  8. Amazing picks! It would be so much fun to have that crafy suitcase stowed away:) I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. The dress is awesome! Don't we all wish that we had more spring parties to attend? And who doesn't want a library ladder?

    No spring break here and Jake is pushing through to the end of June with some crazy rotation schedules. I'm visiting my parents for a couple days this weekend.
