I have found some really great recipes and craft ideas from Pinterest and have decided to give some of these "pinspirations" a try. Some have been successful and some not so much.
Here are some recent inspirations I have tried:
Just last night I made these Vanilla Oatmeal No Bake Cookies that were originally posted on AUNT PEGS RECIPE BOX blog.
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding (I used french vanilla pudding which I had on hand)
3 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Stir together in a saucepan the sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a boil over med. high heat and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add pudding (dry mix, not prepared) and stir until dissolved. Next add oatmeal and vanilla. Let sit about 5 minutes then put onto wax paper by the spoonfuls. Let set up. I let mine set up over night and they were just right.
*ON A SCALE OF 1-5
(with 1 being I would 'not recommend' and a 5 being a 'let's make these every day')
I WOULD GIVE THESE A " 4"
Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
I made these yummy rolls last week. The picture is not of the ones I made because they were gone before I could get a good photo of them. Hubby couldn't stay out of them, I on the other hand did partake but not nearly as much as he did. As a matter of fact I have been know to make some killer cinnamon rolls and hubby said he liked the raspberry rolls even better.

I found this flower scarf on Pinterest a couple of months ago and thought it was really cute.
The blog WATCH ME DADDY has a very easy to follow tutorial if you want to see how she did it.

Here is my version. The only thing I did differently was to add some fake salt water pearls in the center of each flower.
THE UPSIDE: I will say it was quite easy to make, great instructions, it went together easily and the finished project turned out well.
NOW THE DOWNSIDE:
If I were to make one of these again I would use a fabric that is softer and more pliable. When I put it around my neck it was scratchy and bulky and knew right away that it wasn't going to be worn by me anytime soon.
