As you may be able to tell from my last painting post, we have been making some minor changes that make a big impact in Casa de Collins (photos to come if I get around to it ;) ). 

Many of my ideas and inspiration have come from a wonderful (and addicting) web site called  Pinterest. 

Don't know what Pinterest is? You should! It's fantastic!

What is Pinterest? "Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests." 

-from Pinterest's help section

The great thing is that whatever images you pin will link you directly back to the web site source, so you can access any needed information or instructions that go with the image. 

Pinterest has been helpful to this busygal in the following ways:

Home decor inspiration
Good ideas for space saving and organizing
New recipes to try
Party planning
Techniques to use as a therapist (crafts, etc)
Gift ideas for staff at the schools I work at
Fashion inspiration
Parenting ideas for the future
Hairstyle ideas
It's FUN!

From my days as a substance abuse counselor..."Hi, my name is Carly, and I'm a Pinterest addict." 

There, I said it :)

Here is a link to the inspiration board for our bedroom redecoration

You can see how this site has been helping me as a therapist by checking out my other blog, Therapeutic Interventions.

Have you checked out Pinterest yet? What do you think? I'd love to hear how it has made your life as a busygal a bit easier!
