Pinterest Critique

 In case you didn’t already know, I am a huge Pinterest fan.  I love everything about the site and I try things from it all the time.  So, I thought it might be fun to keep my followers posted on the pins that actually work and don’t work (at least for me).  My system is simple, two thumbs up if the pin is everything I wanted it to be, one thumb up if it worked but I ran into problems, and a thumbs down if it was a complete fail.
So here is a critique of some of the pins that I have put to the test…

    I was trying to locate your DIY carseat cover tutorial but I was having problems finding it. I thought it was fabulous so I’m going to try to conquer this project. If you could so kindly direct me to where I could locate that it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks Kristy

      Hi Kristy, I’m glad you like the car seat. The pattern for it was bought off of It’s been a long time since I got the pattern, so that particular seller might not be active any more. If you go to Etsy and search “car seat covers” I’m sure you’ll find a variety to choose from.
