mindful living, effortless style

Pinterest All Stars

After losing another hour (or two) to pinterest the other night, it dawned on me that maybe I should turn the many future hours I’ll inevitably spend there into something productive.  So today I’m announcing a new MPMK feature, Pinterest All Stars, in which I’ll be highlighting some of my most popular pins.  This way I can share some of my best finds and chalk up all my pinning time to “working” – it’s a total win-win.  The plan is to normally only feature one pin but since this is the inagural post, I thought I’d share top pins from nine of my favorite boards.

1) Good to Know Board – How to Connect with Your Kids When You’re Totally Tapped Out.

2) Design with Kids in Mind Board – Family Silhouettes.

3) Learnin’ Board – Learning About Primary Colors with Ice cubes.

4) Playtime Board – Giant Squishy Sensory Bag.

5) Getting Organized Board – Clean Calm – Enjoying Homekeeping with Children.

6) Fresh Finds Board – housewarming bucket.

7) Tutorials Board – Home-made Watercolor Paints.

8) Playroom Ideas Board – Oversized Ruler Growth Chart.

9) Kid Snacks Board – My Top 7 Vegetable Recipes for Kids.

Great idea! I can loose a whole night to Pinterest! It’s super addicting, but I do so much more with my daughter and for my home that it makes up for it…so I think! Lol. My hubby’s opinion on Pinterest is a tad different. :)
