Pinterest {Girls Night In} - January

Pinterest has, in the past month, grabbed so many new followers/subscribers 
that I wasn't too surprised when I found out some close girlfriends 
were enjoying this healthy addiction, daily like me.

After a month of countless hours spent searching and finding super awesome stuff all over the internet, now available in one place, my girlfriend Casey and I decided we needed to find the time, once a month, to come together for a Girls Night In.  The main focus for our monthly get together's would be to pair a Pinterest Project with Wine and a Pinterest Recipe.  The idea sounded heavenly so about 2 weeks later, last night, we had our first Girls Night In. 

The Evening went a little something like this:

"OMG, How are you? I haven't seen you in what seems like forever, except for on Facebook." a sound of group laughter filled the air, because everyone can relate. "Me too, seems like the days rush by so much faster than I remember, why is that?" 

followed by Adult/Mommy ADD...

"Ohhhhh, what did you bring?  Hey, I saw that, did I pin it?"

I brought this, super easy to do.

In surround sound, after sampling, "Yum!"

Then, another friend brought this:

With one more:

All the food was de-lish, I'm so glad I didn't eat dinner.  Sadly, it wasn't a balance meal, however, it was for a girls night in, sealed with a nice glass of red Pinot.

As for the projects, there was a sewing machine, which in fact was not mine, 
a glue gun, corks, jewelry and paint...

I decided to redo an old frame with cork inside, (I think Pinterest justifies hoarding...haven't decided just yet), and have it hang on our Garage door so I can put notes or just 
about anything else on it.  

I'm sad to report, I don't have a before, but here's the Finished Product.
("Take more pictures next time", I wrote myself a note. )


Here are links to the Projects my girlfriends attempted:
Wine Cork Letter
DIY Braided Bead Bracelet  (try and say that five times)
Ringlet T-Shirt Scarf (up-cycle of old shirt)
Recycle of Old Curtains into new Couch Pillows

It was a super fun night, and I highly recommend those thinking to start their own Pinterest Girls Night In, go for it.  It's a great way to remember busy schedules can stop to spend time being creative with those you enjoy.

For those looking to learn more about Pinterest, 
The Happy Housewife has a great Article about it.
