My New Obsession

I spend a lot of time on the internet.  A lot.  Even saying a lot may be an understatement.  The biggest challenge I find is keeping all of the cool and amazing things and ideas I find organized.  My bookmarks bar is a nightmare to navigate.  But not anymore.

My newest obsession (and love) is Pinterest.  Imagine tearing a recipe or hair style or craft idea out of a magazine and pinning it to your corkboard.  It's just like that.  But virtual.  I love it because once you find an idea and pin it, you can go back at anytime, click on your pin and be taken right to the page you were looking for.  So easy and brilliant.  And it's going to save me a ton of time trying to find links in my bookmarks bar.

So if you're looking for me and can't find me, I'm probably pinning.

Hope, opportunity and freedom have long been associated with birds and flight.  These birds are made through a program called PEACE, a grassroots cooperative of women from semi-rural, economically disadvantaged areas in Mexico.  PEACE’s line of art and crafts are mostly created from recycled materials. Proceeds from the sale of these products provide income to help lift families from a life of poverty to prosperity and gives them the hope and freedom to fly.
Children Inspire Design supports PEACE by purchasing their handcraft birds and designing them into these mobiles and ornaments.  Perfect for a nursery, a playroom or entryway, the bird collection gives rise to opportunity and hope for the community that makes them and love for the home that receives them.
Each bird mobile unit includes 6 handcrafted birds and a Kikkerland metal mobile unit.  Measures approximately 24" high by 30" wide.  Some assembly required.

Happy shopping!
