I warned you that I had way to many boards on Pinterest. The remainder of my boards are explained here:
JUST A GEEK AT HEART: I am a geek at heart, one who never learned to play video or role-playing games but one who watches sci-fi and can play Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock. This should really be divided out with separate boards for Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, and Dr. Who. And maybe one for Wil Wheaton because I have such a fan crush on him. I could probably spend all day pinning photos of him in his Wesley Crusher uniform, or those photos of him he posted when he went on a recent cruise, oh wait, there are all those photos of Wil he and his wife Anne sent to all us Twitter followers just last week when they were in Australia and...wait...did I just write all that? Ignore any stalking talk on any geek board, really, it's not what it seems, hahaha. No separate board for Wil, I'll just ahem, keep that one private. So yeah, this board has all the nerdy geeky comic book sci-fi kinda stuff in it.
JUST BECAUSE: Just because I refuse to put a board that's titled "miscellaneous". Where else would I pin Money Folding Techniques or a photo of the Statue of Liberty doing an Angelina Jolie Legbomb? Yes, some of these pins might work better in other boards but the whole point of Just Because is just because.
LAMB LIES DOWN: You'll only get the title if you are a Genesis fan. This has nothing to do with music or cute little cuddly animals but does have to do with all things regarding eating wonderful lamb dishes which there seems to be not many recipes floating around on blogs for. Thus a lack of pinning in this board. But not for lack of lamb recipe looking.
LAYOUT ENVY: A place where I pin all the scrapbooking layouts I want to scraplift or take inspiration from. If I actually scrapped. If I actually used the gazillion supplies I have in the entire room I have dedicated to scrapping that I rarely step foot in. Men have cars and electronics...I have scrap supplies. But with my Layout Envy board I now also have layouts that I can use for inspiration. Just ignore the pile of scrapbooking magazines in that corner that I also keep for inspiration. Or that box of scrap ideas I've pulled from scrap magazines that I plan to scraplift. I'll promise to create a layout. Tomorrow. Once I find space in my scraproom that looks nothing like any in the Creating Spaces board. Vicious circle I tell yah.
LET IT BEE: This board is strictly for my heart. It reminds me of my Grandfather who was an apiarist (beekeeper) at UCDavis. I do not collect bee things, I do not make bee things, but this board warms my heart with it's beeness.
LET ME ENTERTAIN THEM: Because in my soul I am the hostess with the mostest and if I had time, talent, money and a giant house, I would be entertaining my friends and family on a weekly basis. This board is full of ideas for when I finally invite folks over for dinner and drinks.
LET THEM EAT CAKE: Cakes I can actually make like simple bundt cakes or layer cakes and photos of cakes I wish people would have at weddings and parties I go to.
LET THEM EAT CUPCAKES: See above, just in smaller form.
MY BEDROOM: Ideas on how to decorate my bedroom. Which if I used all the ideas in one room would mean I probably couldn't find the bed and Mr. L would probably not set foot in. Which means I need at least a twenty bedroom house to decorate twenty different bedrooms.
MY DINING ROOM: See above but with dining room tables instead of beds.
NEED ON MY NIGHTSTAND: Though you would think this would be full of books that I'd like to read, it would be impossible to import the twenty-two page Amazon wish list I currently have or enter in the hundreds of books I have in stacks at home waiting to be read. This board has a few books I've pinned here and there but is mostly filled with beautiful libraries or book places I wish were available to me.
NEVER ENOUGH SHOES: Because one never has enough shoes. And because someday there will be a miracle and my foot will no longer be wide and will fit in cute little designer shoes that will miraculously cost only about $20.
NEW YEARS EVE and NEW YEARS: Not sure why I have two boards...I can see having a New Years Eve board because there are parties and decorations and drinks that could be pinned. I'm afraid the only thing to pin to the New Years Day board will be recipes for hangover cures and vomit buckets. Don't be surprised if that second board goes away.
OUTSIDE LIVING: All things that have to do with a back yard that is much much bigger than the postage stamp sized one I currently have. Pools. Backyard dining rooms. Backyard kitchens. Cute little areas to curl up and read a book amid the lush greenery. Waterfalls. Anything that gives me that "Calgon take me away" moment in my own back yard.
PAGES PUCKS AND PANTRY: Where I am slowly entering some of the old recipes I've made. Yes, I pin stuff that I've posted on my blog. I love when others do that (and I love those that have named theirs something like "shameless personal promotion"). Pinterest is almost like my RSS feed these days...helps me know when those I follow have posted something new to their blog by them pinning it, so please, feel free to pin your posts and toot your own horn. There are those of us out there that get it and like it.
PAPERCRAFTING ENVY: Paper crafts that don't fit in Card Envy or Layout Envy.
PASTA MY HEART: All things pasta.
PEARLS SPARKLE BLING: Jewelry both affordable and that I can't even afford to look at along with things that don't necessarily sparkle and bling. This board is an equal opportunity board so things like rubies and emeralds can be found here, not just pearls. Watches too.
PIE, PIE, PIE AND TARTS: All things pies, hand pies, tarts etc. I'm slowly migrating pies and tarts from the dessert boards here.
PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD: All cute little ideas transforming food into shapes and things that would make kids eat them. I need to borrow your kids so I can make some of these things, though I think Mr. L would get a kick out of me making his pancakes in the shapes of animals and not blobs.
PORKAPALOOZA: About five years ago I planned on having a food blog event where everyone would send me links to their blog posts about the most important food group, pork, and it was going to be a yearly Porkapalooza event. The name has stuck to mean pretty much any drool worthy dish that is made from pork. We have Porkapalooza events quite regularly in my house even if it's just Mr. L and I. See also BACON-EVERYTHINGS BETTER WITH.
POULTRY: All things chicken, turkey, partridge, dove, pheasant or pretty much anything that flys and can be eaten. Don't freak, I have no dove recipes pinned. Though I have eaten dove and quite liked it so now you can freak out.
PRODUCTS I LOVE: Items I wish I owned or currently own and can't live without. This is where row upon row of bacon items would be pinned if bacon didn't have it's own board.
PROJECT LIFE SCRAPBOOK: Because I've started Project Life at least three times and have never finished. I'm hoping this board gets me going and gives me ideas.
PURSES...I DIE: Feel free to use this as my Christmas/Anniversary/Birthday/Just Because You Love Me wish list.
RED WHITE AND BLUE: All things patriotic and that have to do with Independence Day aka The 4th of July.
ROMANTICALLY SHABBY: Because someday I will figure out how to make things look shabby and romantic and cool and not look like they are old and used and broken and like they should be in the dump and not decorating my home.
SECRET GARDEN: At some point I do hope I live somewhere that has Gods Green Earth for me to plant and kill some plants. I do not have a green thumb. Not even close. Nor do I currently have any earth to plant anything. All I have is a brick patio. Where I tend to plants that die. I want a nice garden so that when I find snails I can fling them over the fence into someone elses yard. And a spot where I can dump all the plants I've killed and make them into mulch.
SOUPS SANDWICHES AND PIZZAS: Another board that needs to be divided. Who knew I would find so many recipes for pizza's to pin, a food I have never actually made myself?
ST. PATRICK'S DAY: There are a whole lotta foods that shouldn't be green that are made green for this holiday and I must pin them all.
STEAMPUNK: In my mind I live in a Steampunk world and I dress Steampunk. And I look hot. In the real world I just pin Steampunk stuff. Because it's hot. And it's an obsession. Though if truth be told I own not one item of clothing or piece of jewelry or artifact that would be considered Steampunk. At least nothing I would admit to anyway.
TABLESCAPES: For all those dinner parties I don't have.
THANKSGIVING AND FALL: Lots of turkey stuff in here. Lots of brown too.
THE KITCHEN IS THE HEART: Which is under 'T' because that's the way Pinterest rolls. Word to those assigning board names...leave out "the". Anyway this is where I put photos of all those gourmet kitchens I wish I had to cook in along with some great ideas for storage, aprons and anything kitcheny.
THE LADIES ROOM: Bathroom. John. Commode. Water closet. Head. The Loo. Restroom. The Can. Lavatory. Crapper. Washroom. What they are commonly called. But I don't pin those types....I pin LADIES ROOMS. There is a difference. Trust me.
VALENTINES DAY: Anything to do with the holiday, foods in the shape of hearts, pink or red foods and ideas to make Mr. L smile since he always treats me well on Valentines Day and I need to give some of that love back.
WHAT WAS SHE THINKING: Because we all have a bit of a "Joan Ranger" in us and there are celebrities out there that really just don't look at themselves in a mirror before they walk out the door. Or they have the worst stylists ever. And yes, posting these photos makes me feel better about my fat pant days. Because wearing a pair of black fat pants is heads and tails better than these outfits!
WORTH A 1000 WORDS: Photos that I find interesting along with some camera and photography information.
WRAPPING AND PACKAGING IDEAS: Because some day I'm actually going to get birthday and Christmas packages wrapped before the actual day and time they need to be opened. So I'll have time to wrap things in all these pretty packaging ideas instead of stuffing them in gift bags with a piece of tissue paper. And because I truly wish to channel Martha Stewart at times.
Herein ends my Pinterest Board list. Which will change within weeks as I add more boards. Because Pinterest is an addiction. And I just shared mine so feel free to share yours. And because years from now I'll probably not remember why I started these boards so I'll need something to reference. Be calm and Pin on....
