Pinterest Feature Friday

Hello, friends, and welcome to Pinterest Feature Friday…our weekly PARTY!


Each Friday Malia from Yesterday on Tuesday, Bev from Flamingo Toes, Kara from Mine for the Making and myself (Michele from The Scrap Shoppe) take turns selecting a fun new pinner from our Pinterest Link Party to feature. And ?you’re featured across 4 blogs! So be sure you’re linked up, mkay?

Today’s featured pinner is a blogger you may already be familiar with. And if you’re not, well, you should be! It’s Jenny from Craft Test Dummies! Jenny does a lot of craft supply, new product, and tool reviews. And there’s usually a fun giveaway going on, too! Be sure to check her out if you haven’t yet.

Jenny has 85 Pinterest boards and 1890 pins!

Let’s look at some of those boards!

Follow CraftTestDummies’s board Products I Love on Pinterest. Follow CraftTestDummies’s board Product Reviews on Pinterest.
Checking out both Jenny’s Products I Love and Product Reviews boards seems like it would be pretty beneficial. Since she has tried out so many craft products, I think it’s pretty safe to say she knows what she is talking about!

Follow CraftTestDummies’s board Geek Crafts on Pinterest. Follow CraftTestDummies’s board Make it/Wear it on Pinterest.
I am LOVING Jenny’s Geek Crafts board! So many cute and fun ideas for your inner nerd.

DIY Planner Cover

Hello friends! I’m stopping by today to share my adorable DIY Planner Cover with you!

If you know me at all then you know I am a planner and a list writer. Multiple lists, multiple calendars. It’s my thing. I have a planner that is just for homeschool (which I adore and you can find it for sale via @homeeducator on Instagram), our family wall calendar (it’s dry erase), my iphone calendar, and then my daily (paper) calendar. I am SUPER picky about planners. SUPER. I’ve only found one daily planner that I truly truly love (same goes with my homeschool planner) but the designer (my cute friend Emmy) stopped making them to focus her time elsewhere. You can imagine how excited I was to find out that @itsjustemmy was planning on selling her planners again!! Insert: happy dance. As soon as it arrived, I broke out my paper crafting supplies and started decorating my planner cover. You can find a great tutorial on Emmy’s blog HERE. Super easy!

I went through my paper stash and got to work. I traced the cover on a piece of floral scrapbook paper and cut it out carefully. Then I cut a 2 inch strip out of pink glitter paper to overlay. I used double sided photo tape to adhere everything. Then I busted out the fun stickers…

I love how it turned out and I can’t wait to start filling it in. I even started adding stickers and things to the inside…

I love that I can personalize my own cover… or that it’s cute enough to just leave black and white! 

Head on over to Emmy’s shop to get your planner… once they are gone, they are GONE!

This is NOT a sponsored post. I just really love this planner and my awesome friend Emmy. I only share products and shops that I love and that I think my readers will love too.

Marvel Optics Glasses

Recently my daughter and I had our yearly eye exam and were told we needed new prescription glasses. After looking at the frames in the waiting room, I quickly ruled out the over priced glasses. They just weren’t in our budget… especially not two pairs. I decided on Marvel Optics glasses after looking through their affordable prices […]

Matching For Family Photos But Not Twinning

matching for photos1

Hi Everyone! It’s Siri of Pumpkin Thieves and Buffalo Wings back to share another fashion post. A lot of mamas love the idea of matching with their littles and their family for photos.  It’s aesthetically pleasing and sometimes they won’t let you do it when they’re older. So take advantage of it now! But where most mamas go wrong is in […]
