I’m not going to lie to you. The moment I have a free second online (after, of course, paying bills and replying to loved ones and re-issuing my library books and ordering the new tax form thingy and all those very important things that always, ALWAYS, take priority) I hop on to Pinterest. I used to love Pinterest, then I hated it – because I discovered that I wasn’t the original inventor of many of the things I thought I was- and now I love it again. Mostly I love it for the way it saves me money.
Need a recipe involving one mouldy turnip and some paprika? Sorted.
Need facepaint but can’t afford to handover a fiver for a pot? A DIY version found.
Need inspo for some homemade furniture? Done.
Want to make something but don’t want to pay out at the craft shop? P-I-N-T-E-R-E-S-T.
