In which I get Pinspired

Connecting Families through Creative Play: Day 7 - Traditions

So, this e-course I've being enjoying has lots of great features: a daily email that highlights one aspect of creative play, a highly interactive Facebook group, inspirational quotations and...Pinspiration!  For those of you who are not familiar with Pinterest, who are you?  Do you live in a cave?  A cave that does not have wireless Internet?

Fortunately, for me, I am much less ambitious than other stay-at-home moms, and therefore do not suffer from from "Pinterest stress".  My usual reaction when checking out other people's boards is, "Hmm, that's nice.  Maybe when I'm 40.  I will now go back to reading hilarious blogs instead."

However, I really did enjoy the tradition-themed board linked in a recent e-course email, and actually found myself inspired.  Most of the ideas involved the creation of stuff, though, and this 1,100 square foot house has just about enough stuff as it is, so I considered how I could incorporate some of the ideas digitally.  My first idea is for a "shoe journal", documenting each of my children's pairs of shoes with a photo and description.  Above is the first installment (created, of course, using picmonkey.)  And certainly, if you want to pin my idea, you are more than welcome!  (See convenient sharing button below.)
