Pinterest: if I ever procreate*

And my pinterest obsession just grows and grows....

I love that I can have boards for everything - recipes, decorating, holidays. I now even have boards for things that are so far in the distance that they're not so much a dot on the horizon as a speck on the dot on the horizon! Hence my 'if I ever procreate' board.

Realistically, I don't know if or when we'd even want to try for a family, but pinterest is such a treasure trove I just had to pin some of the great ideas. Add in the fact that I've always had a major interest in child development, and the geekery is strong in this one. And add the final impetus, lots of friends with cute cute cute babies, and the pinning just has to be done! Here are some of my favourite picks.


A quilt made from baby clothes! Such a cute idea.


This idea is so clever for family Christmasses. None of the gifts under the tree are named. Instead, everyone has a piece of wrapping paper stowed in the bottom of their stocking, which gives the clue as to which presents belong to which person. Love the element of surprise!


I've long hoped that if I'm/we're lucky enough to have children, that I might be able to homeschool them until 6/7. I think homeschooling is so interesting and I love reading blogs about it. Cute little schoolrooms like this just fuel the fire!


Love this Christmas newsletter! Inventive, fun, cute enough to display and quick to read!


Ha! Such a simple and clever idea!


Cut up pieces of pipe cleaner, put in a container, then have kids use a magnet to manipulate them. Genius!


The creativity of the pinterestverse (I'm sure there's a better way to express that, but forgive me, it's the weekend!) never fails to astound me. This chest of drawers is simply darling and would be perfect for any littlies room.


I think this list is pretty groovy - lots of great ideas for tempting little eaters!


A photo every month is always such a cute idea - love this way of doing it!


A door muff for a baby's room. Just a brilliant, solid idea. As an ex-babysitter, I pretty much shouted 'Eureka!' when I saw this.


"Cute idea . . .Starting at age 3, every year on their birthday you ask the same questions and see how their answers change over the years! Add a pic and make a book out of it."


Hahaha! This made me roar with laughter. If I'm ever blessed enough to be a mama, this is such a must!


"This is such a cute idea. It's a daily calendar that can be reused each year and gets better the longer you use it. Each day you write the year and something that happened that day like, "(Child's name) took her first steps." I imagine the first year wouldn't be as fun, but imagine how neat it would be in 10 years."


How adorable is this? Several of my friends have announced new baby brothers and sisters in really cute ways, and pinterest is full of lots of other brilliant suggestions for announcing new babies.


What a wonderful idea for a baby shower. I love baby showers!


A bookcase dollhouse! How beautiful! I would have gone nuts for this when I was little.


If I am ever lucky enough to have children, I'd really like to be a crafty mama who makes things (in between that very tough job of parenting!). These pyjama bottoms are adorable!

* don't panic, sweetie!


  1. Oh, these ideas are AWESOME! Love the bookcase dollhouse. I would've killed for one of those back in the day...and drawing on the wall to make the roof would've given me more joy! :)

    The wrapping paper at the bottom of the stocking is a good one, too! Must do that when the kids stop believing in Rudolph! lol Yes, they don't believe in Santa...they (supposedly) believe in Rudolph! :D

    Thanks for sharing these...they're great!!

  2. I think you'd be a great parent!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
