I don't have a Pinterest.
I'm conflicted about how I feel about Pinterest.
What's not to love about having every imaginable homemade idea right at your fingertips?
Sometimes, I feel like original creative thought gets stifled.
Sometimes, I need a boost in creativity and I think I might find that boost on Pinterest.
Sometimes, I think up something great then hear from my girls, "Oh, I saw that on Pinterest".
Sometimes, I wonder what's the point of being original.
Sometimes, I'm overwhelmed by all that Pinteresty great stuff I might should be doing.
Sometimes, I wish I had a Pinterest so I could be better at everything.
Sometimes, I'm glad I don't so I can just be mediocre me.
I grew up clipping favorites from magazines to paste in scrapbooks and I guess that's no different.
Still ... I like to tease my girls who love Pinterest, that I think they should try to be more interesting than pinteresting as they come up with their own creative ideas.
And .. . whenever I have what I think is an original idea (though I'm pretty sure it's already been Pinterested) I proclaim me, "So great, I should Pinterest myself" in a sing-song voice accompanied by solo laughter and eye rolls all around.
A pathetic party of one.
Today I had such a moment and it was just too good not to share.
I got tired of making sandwiches for the pool.
Let out a deep sigh.
Looked around the kitchen for a solution.
And there you have it.
And I really am feeling so great I should Pinterest myself ... if I had a Pinterest. ;)
