Oh pinterest, what have you done?

I don't know about you all but this fad of pinterest has got me wanting to do all kinds crafty projects around the house! Since we've moved I have decided to start completely over with my decorating. This may sound exciting...and it did when I first moved in, but because redecorating is a little on the pricey side, it's got me in the waiting period right now. My walls are completely bare, my windows are naked, and most of the rooms are just half done. It is literally starting to drive me crazy.
As I search on pinterest today, I pinned all kinds of good DIY projects to get started on. I find myself just pinning away and then I decided to actually make a plan to start and finish one of these projects. Why not? They're so cool! The only problem is, most of these projects will take me more than 2 hours during the kids nap time. I have yet to finish the boys pictures I painted for their rooms. Apparantley I am horrible at finishing things. I don't think I used to be this way but since having 3 little boys, I'll get like 15 min of good work time in and then I have to stop and tend to the kids. Then, by the time I do get a couple hours to do something I'm so exhausted from playing and taking care of them that all I want to do is catch some zz's.
So anyway, back to the excitement of all these projects I want to do. I have written out my shopping of list of materials that I will need to get started on all these ideas. I just really have to discipline myself to just focus on one thing at a time. Sometimes I can get a little too excited and jump all over the place. So let the redecorating begin!...on a budget of course!
Also if you haven't jumped on the pinterest bandwagon, I suggest you do because you are definitley missing out on some great ideas. Everything about it is amazing..just saying.
