Pinterest Picks: “Favorite Tuesday”

13 Dec
Give it up for Good! Mason Jar from Lil'Light'O'Mine

Give it up for Good! Mason Jar from Lil'Light'O'Mine!

Two days ago, I made a committment.  Every Tuesday, +/- a day, depending on Brett’s schedule, I will highlight my  favorite Pinterest discoveries.   For each favorite, I will highlight  the pin, the website/ blog from which the Pin originated, and also add some personal thoughts.  One pin and blogger will simply take the cake.

These are my parameters:

(1) My  favorite pins inspire me to be a better Woman, Wife, and Mama.
(2) The source is someone who shines as a Woman, Wife, and /or Mama as well.

Don’t be shy, any suggestions or recommendations you have about ways to organize these selections are welcome.  My hope is to bless you with some of the amazing creations and ideas I have found!

I will briefly describe and highlight my first two favorites.  Then I will expand on my absolute, hands down, favorite discovery of the week!

So, here we go, my top three:

3) “Let all that you do be done in love” image from Joy’s Hope.  I have a crush on this blog and Joy for that matter, although we have never met!  Apparently Joy has been writing a blog for years (and is a pro) but, as a recent stay at home mom, new to blogging, I have just discovered her – you should too!  Her sweet, bright, playful thoughts are inspiring and simply happy!  She loves her family and Jesus; it is apparent in every detail of her blog!

2) Crab, Octopus, and Fish ocean animal handprint  art from Kristal at Mama At Home.  This idea is brilliant.  My kids and I have already completed the project!  Her ideas and thoughts are real.  I would like to think if I ran into her at the park we would have a great down to earth conversation.

1) Far and away my favorite discovery of the week comes from Lil’Light’o’Mine.  Courtney has created an amazing Christmas tradition to be shared and cherished for years to come.  Overwhelmed with the buying, hustle, and consumption of the holiday season, she designed a fabulous project called: “Light ‘Em Up”  Courtney and her daughters are committing to give the gifts of good deeds, smiles, and cheer to people in their community.  She offers free downloads of their efforts so you and your family can participate as well.  In addition, the ideas, when packaged in a festive mason jar, make an amazing Christmas gift.  While this idea is designed to follow advent, why not up the number to 52 and commit to do a random act of kindness, once  a week, for a year?  Definitely take the time to check out this awesome Mom and this life changing idea.

Well, those are my amazing discoveries!   I hope you have found a little gem to take on your way to becoming your most amazing self.   I will ramble some more this week as time permits, but if not,  until next Tuesday…

Enjoy Yourself!
