I am hardly ever an early adopter of ANYTHING technology or social media related. But I was one of the early adopters of Pinterest and it been so fun to see everyone hop on board. I love having a landing spot to collect and organize online ideas and inspiration. Some of the things I pin are connected to larger projects around the house that I am working on in the long term, some are for when the little miss grows up a bit. But I definitely didn't want to get into the habit of pinning without actually trying some of the ideas I pinned.
I will spare you the play by play, as Jessica did a great job with her tutorial, but I did take some creative liberties to make it my own. Since I already have a beautiful turquoise necklace I found in San Francisco on our vacation last year, I decided to go with black bead to meet a need in my own wardrobe. I also went with three strand in each braid rather than two to create some thickness.
I am pretty proud of how it turned out! Have you tried anything you have pinned? How did it turn out?
