Pinterest picks

I haven't been sharing many of my Pinterest picks since I quit putting together Saturday Link Lists. I'm still pinning as much as ever, though. I'm sharing just a few of my recent favorites here today. Enjoy.

Why don't I have an ice cream maker? I cannot believe how many awesome ice cream recipes are out there, like this coconut coffee ice cream. Coffee and coconut are two of my favorite flavors in general and also for ice cream so together? Can't even handle it.

I pin a lot of greeting cards with buttons, sometimes for articles, sometimes because I want to try the ideas, and sometimes just because. I love the whole stitching on paper with buttons thing here. You could customize this idea with any color palette for any occasion.

Slow cooker chicken philly sandwiches. How have I not made this recipe yet? I make chicken in the slow cooker all the time and know that Jake would love it, too.

I'd love to make up a whole bunch of these button embellishments to use on greeting cards, tags, wall art, and whatever else inspired me.

Lindsay at Pinch of Yum has a great post about artificial lighting tips for food photography. Many of you already know how much I love my light box. However, it would be really helpful to have the flexibility to do larger set ups with artificial lighting, too. I haven't tracked down the supplies to make the DIY soft light that she references in the post, but it's on my to do list.

How adorable are these cupcake liner picture frames?

I've actually had a different silver tip nails pin saved for quite a while, but I had to find something that linked to a real post to share it here. (Does it drive anyone else nuts when you can't find a great picture that links to a source?) This is another idea that I can't believe that I haven't tried yet.

I pin a lot of Alisa's posts. Honestly I kind of picked these family blocks at random because it's so hard to choose just one of her posts to share here.

I don't know how it took me more than half a year of owning Lightroom to learn how to do sepia editing. I love sepia photos so much. You will be seeing more sepia editing from me from now on.

What have you been pinning lately?
Feel free to share links in the comments!


  1. I love those muffin cup photo frames! and thanks for the intro to Alisa's family blocks...so cool!

  2. Those chicken phillies look SO good! And those cupcake liner frames are so cute :)

  3. Those cupcake liner frames are adorable! What a cute idea! I can spend hours on pinterest but yet never go back to look at my own pins so I need to wean myself off that site. Eventually. :)

  4. The button card and button flowers are adorable! Love them!
    I'm going to check them out right now! For certain images I also like sepia more than black and white. But I prefer the rose-toned to the yellow-toned :)

  5. I love it when people do Pinterest picks! We don't have an ice cream maker, either, but every time I see a delicious recipe like that I wish we did.

  6. I've never had coffee and coconut icecream, but when we meet, I'm sure I would enjoy it!
