My Space & Miss Elaine-ous Monday

Last week you all saw the desk that I cleaned up and out.  Since then I acquired a new BFF (also known as a new laptop, and no, it’s not from the apple family, don’t start) and two photography actual, legitimate paying customers.  So… I decided that I needed to sit at said desk instead of parking my hiney on the sofa while blogging, tweeting and photo editing.  I even use a mouse now and my back is supported.

This is what almost-37-year-old computing looks like, peeps.  Ergonomic support IS essential, just FYI.

Anyway, as I was sitting at my lovely and rejuvenated space, I realized there was nothing on the wall above it.  I happen to be perusing Pinterest at the time and thankfully the internet idea gods aligned and I found inspiration there.  Since I had yet to use these frames, the light bulb went off in the ole noggin, I kicked my creativity into high gear and I now have this display above my desk:

Yeah, I kinda love it. 
I just put nails in each side of the frames and then used random scrapbooking supplies I had around, including yarn and ribbon, and tied pieces of them from nail to nail.  Then I found these darling little “clothes” pins to hold the pictures.

Since the frames were ready to go this only took me about 20 minutes and I’m so happy with it and excited that I FINALLY used them! WOOT!
So, have you done anything inspired by Pinterest lately?  I just love the ideas and recipes and I hope to use more of them this year.

And Guess What!?!?

It’s Miss-Elaine-ous Monday!!

Remember, ANY “miss elaine-ous” post will do, something from your archives or something brand new! :) 

Do you have a post that meant a lot to you but wasn’t read by as many folks as you’d hoped? Or one that has great pictures and you want more people to see them? Or do you just have one that you really want to share!?

I’ll also choose a random post from those who link up to feature on The Miss Elaine-ous Life Facebook page (please “Like” if you have not already) so even more folks will see a new post every week! Grab the button and link up!  And please visit some of the other linkers as well…
