Pinterest Project

I'm not on Pinterest. It looks like a fun site but I heard from so many women how they jumped on it and emerged hours later wondering where the time had gone and I already have trouble with that with Facebook, so I figured I'd just avoid temptation altogether.

However, occasionally neat Pinterest posts and ideas reach me through Facebook or other blogs. I don't have a whole lot of time to do most of them but one came across my Facebook page I thought was rather neat. It was this one...

I shared it on Facebook and chatted with a friend about how nice it looks for first time moms or moms of only a couple of kids. Since I have five, these things you do for each child are a bit harder to jump aboard. 

However, I was trying to think of something we could do focused on the girls as a Mother's Day/Cheer Up present for my grandmother and this seemed like a pretty and neat idea. So we gave it a whirl! They didn't come out perfectly but they came out pretty well I think. 

Both of my grandparents really liked them. If I did it again, I would buy a wider rainbow inpad. one I got was plenty long with nice colors but it was a bit narrow so fitting the bigger feet on it was a little challenging. I would also try to do the baby while she is sleeping... the curling of the toes is just hard to avoid playing with a baby's feet while she is awake.
