Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Ultimate Blog Party 2012
Welcome to Worth Pinning.  If you're new here, this is a pretty realistic snapshot into my world:
This is where I share my DIY projects, baking, recipes, crafts, sewing, design and adventures.  Here is a taste of some of the projects I share on Worth Pinning.  Click the links below the thumbnail collage for more detail (each link will open in separate page):

From my "About Me" Page:
Worth Pinning is about doing the things that make you, YOU.  I live in the best place imaginable for me- surrounded by trails, trees, birds, wild flowers and my family- and I am most myself when I am creating, designing, and exploring the outdoors.

I have background in interior design, floral design, and massage therapy.  I was about 10 when I figured out I was really good at art.  I learned how to paint with oils, acrylics and watercolor.  I fell in love with printmaking in college and that's when I decided to follow a more creative path than Economics.  Economics just made sense to me, but interior design was where I was discovered who I could be is exactly who I have always been.  I've worked for an interior design firm, architecture firm, and owned two high end floral shops.  Massage therapy school was thrown in the mix for fun.

I am an avid runner, hiker, snowshoer, cyclist, swimmer, and yogi.  I figured out early-on that if I wanted to be able to do the things I loved while my kids were little, they would have to come with me.  As a result, I have two incredible adventurers.  I'd rather be out on a trail than scrubbing my house.  My fabulously planned meals get in the way of decorating cookies and baking cakes.  My laundry takes a backseat to project or craft.  Does it all get done?  Hardly ever and eventually.

I work full-time at a private club/development and I'm vague about that part of my life, but my job includes really awesome things like leading hikes/snowshoeing, fitness, yoga, massage, concierge, HR, marketing, events and even the occasional floral design.  I'm not sure how I landed in a job perfectly suited for me, but it wasn't without big trials, starting from scratch, and rebuilding a self-worth...which has all led me to a life Worth Pinning.

What inspires you?  Find it.  Do it.  Pin it.

  2. You know I signed up to Pinterest but golly, just haven't had time to really explore it (or maybe I am afraid I will never escape?) Stopping by on the UBP tour-thought I would say hello

  8. Wow, you're a busy lady too! ;) And how crazy that you named your blog long before pinterest came around... :) My husband is also a twin so you know he was over the moon when we found out about ours! And apparently that should have nothing to do with it (especially as they appear to be identical), but it's kinda cool!

    That's a very cool storage bench and I love the colors too! Wish I had space for that kind of thing in my house... my creativity is limited! (but I will by posting my girls room decor this week now that it's finally done!)
