I love Pinterest. It took me awhile to realize its value, but once I did I was hooked. It's a wonderful place to get ideas and inspiration. Yes, sometimes you do have to take things with a grain (or few) of salt. But isn't that true of everything on the internet?
While it might not be the most exciting of series, I thought I'd share various projects and tips gleaned from the boards of Pinterest.

I'm still hoping to pick up some walnuts and test them on some of the more difficult scratches. But that's not too bad is it?
Certainly a handy trick I'll keep in mind.
