Mother’s Day is Sunday!  I can’t believe it, because that means it’s half-way through the month of May and it’s gone way too fast.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Matter of Cents and I are sharing our favorite mom-inspired pins from Pinterest.  We’d love for you to share yours, too; see how you can at the bottom of the post.

Happy Mother’s Day to you all.  And a special Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and Gram. Continue reading »

Earth Day is on Sunday, April 20th this year, and so Matter of Cents and I thought it that Earth Day Ideas would be an appropriate Pin Me! Thursdays theme for this week.

Have an old fish bowl?  Turn it into a planter!

April is usually the month that most schools go on spring break.  I think the college I attended  might have been one of the few exceptions; I recall our spring break falling just before my birthday, which was in March.  Considering the college was located in Florida, I guess I can’t complain too much, as most of my friends attending colleges in other states seemed to think I was on spring break year-round.

Because it’s that time of year (seriously, where has the year gone already?), Matter of Cents and I have chosen Spring Break Ideas as our theme for this week’s Pin Me! Thursday.  I’m going to share spring break travel ideas, projects and crafts to complete while on spring break, and a few other spring break-related items.  Going through and finding pins to share with you has definitely put me in the mood for a towel on the beach (though I’ll probably have to settle for a lounge chair on our patio).

Everything about this says “Spring Break” to me.  It makes me want to throw on some flip flops and a fedora, grab a friend, a mixed tape and some lemonade, and head off on a road trip.

Easter Crafts via Pinterest

A quick look at my Pinterest boards and blog posts will tell you: I love holidays.  And so I get excited thinking about what crafts to make, recipes to cook, sweets to bake, etc. with each approaching holiday.  Because we have Easter just around the corner, this week Matter of Cents and I have choosen Easter Crafts as our weekly Pinterest Pin Me! theme.

I could easily have linked about 90 other things, and that’s what I love most about Pinterest.  It is a great repository for ideas of every nature; every time I visit the site, I find things I both want to recreate, and projects I want to tweak to my own tastes/needs.  Here are a few of my top picks.
