Making & baking via Pinterest

I heard about Pinterest a few months ago and was king of 'meh' about it. I didn't seek it out really and figured at some point I'd get interested. Then about a month or so again a friend sent me an invite so I finally joined. I'm still not a pin-aholic, but I do like the fact that it's a place I can gather all the things I want to bake/craft/knit, etc.

In the past few weeks I've made these things that I 'pinned'.

Glittered pumpkins via Martha Stewart. I used glitter and glitter glue from Martha's line at Michael's (thank you 40% off coupon). It was a pretty messy project because there is glitter everywhere, I'm pretty sure I have glitter in my bloodstream now. Also you had to be really careful to not touch the glue/glitter before it dried. I love the way they turned out though.

Felt leaf garland via A Beautiful Mess. This was incredibly easy to make since I ran them through my sewing machine instead of stitching them by hand. I just traced a leaf shaped pattern on a piece of copy paper, cut it out, pinned it to the felt sheet and cut them out by hand.

Chocolate Almond Oat bars from The Pastry Affair. These are delicious and could not have been more simple to make.
White Bean and Parmesan Baked Orzo from How Sweet It Is. A really good one-dish kind of dinner, even Doug ate it!?

I love your pumpkins! I got some clearance glitter to do some glittered little plastic deer for Christmas.
