Pin It! or Pass

Over the last couple of weeks I was on a Pinterest Bing. Not just pinning either. I was actually using my Pins. Here's the scoop:

Simple Sympathy by Wdoherty - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
This was my inspiration (the purple) - like theirs better but it was still motivating. Sorry I can't get it to rotate... I think I just needed a bigger butterfly and a darker background. It would still classify as a PIN!

I did a little baking....
Pumpkin Poppers - easy doughnut holes cooked in a mini muffin tin

Pumpkin Poppers - original on left, mine on the right - I know, you can tell by looking at them they are a PIN IT!

breakfast ideas! i'm going to make a billion of these to freeze and pull out for quick bfasts or snacks

Egg, sausage, and cheese muffin - big success! Easy to freeze and reheat too! PIN IT!

Boil, smash, season, bake. These are the BEST potatoes ever.  From the Pioneer Woman. 
 Crash Potatoes - no picture because, well, it wasn't pretty. These were a lot of work if you ask me. And honestly, I couldn't get them to smash pretty like these and then they got too hard.... PASS!

Then I tried both of these...

     You’ll Never Guess What’s In A Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (Hint: You Won’t Be Happy)     Best Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte  The first was pretty good actually. I prefer it with a little whipped cream added in (and I just used strong coffee instead of Espresso) The second was definitely better but it also took more prep. Both were PIN IT!

So that is my PIN IT OR PASS Update - it's great to actually use those PINS!
