Stop Pinning & Make Something! November Link Party

How many pins have you actually made from your Pinterest boards?  Our boards are full of inspirational ideas and projects we want to make "some day".   It’s time to Stop Pinning and Make Something!!

Goal:
To get people creating!  Get out those paint brushes, that saw & sander, open the varnish, unpack your knitting needles or crochet hook!  Let’s make one of those pins sitting idle on your Pinterest boards. It can be as small as learning a new technique for creating ATC's to as big as making a garden shed!  Your pins are your limit.

How I will use it

I decided to use inspirational quotes to keep me motivated from the current book I am reading: Reinventing Yourself
I typed the quotes, printed them on card stock, tore them down to size then altered them using material, paper, ribbon, and other bits:







Assembled and hung:

I am not happy with the yellowish knobs but because of cost to replace them they will stay as they are.  I would like to find something different, metal perhaps.
