Crafty Autumn Pins on Pinterest

Autumn is my favorite time of year. The air is growing crisp, leaves are crunching underfoot, fireplaces are roaring to life, and the air is scented with nutmeg and cinnamon. I find a lot of inspiration on Pinterest this time of year and am sharing a few of my favorite Autumn Pins on Pinterest guaranteed to pique everyone’s crafty side.

Father’s Day {pin of the day}

Father’s Day is Sunday. It’s the one day that’s all about Dad. This celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood cries out for something crafty. After all, how many ties can Dad own? We spent some time on Pinterest and found a fun collection of pins which take a little time and whole lot of love to complete for Dad or Grandpa. Which reminds us, we have to get busy, our presents aren’t going to make themselves!

Wedding Cakes {Pin of the Day}

Weddings cakes are the sweet surprise for the bride and groom on their wedding day. (Be nice, y’all!) We’re great fans of wedding cakes and always line up to get a pretty slice to nibble on. When we were single gals, we’d take a piece of cake home to slip under our pillow in hopes we’d dream of our future mates. They never quite made it under our pillow as we would always wind up having “just a nibble” for a midnight snack and polishing it off.

After scouring Pinterest for some of the most beautiful weddings cakes we’ve seen, we’re sharing a few here. Yes, it’s normally a “pin of the day,” but why not pin several of our favorite weddings cakes. Here’s to sweet dreams for everyone!

Wedding Program Fans {Pin of the day}

Wedding program fans are new to us and, quite frankly, a little slice of heaven. We’ve sat outside at many outdoor weddings, plagued by bugs and the imminent thunderstorm sitting just over the hill. Worse, the church or venue which only turned their air conditioning on that morning and hasn’t cooled off the inside to accommodate the throng of family and friends as you celebrate your special day.

What we love about these programs is they are an easy DIY effort. All it takes is ribbon, your program printed on heavy stock, cut in the shape you want, and wooden craft sticks. The most delicate matron won’t be affected by the heat as she cools herself with your wedding program fans.

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer {Pin of the Day}

The month of June means weddings. After all at some point in her life every girl has wanted to be a June bride. Leticia went against tradition and was married in August. Lisa was a rebel and married in mid-September. We remember overwhelming details, lists galore, and wondering how we’d get it all done. Saying “I Do” was a piece of (wedding) cake.

Planning your wedding is helped when you know which questions to ask. Our pin of the day is all about the wedding photographer and which questions you need to be asking. It’s a great diagram to guide you so the only thing you have to worry about on your wedding day is floating down the aisle to your partner and saying your vows.

Wedding fever is still strong here in Straight Up Crafty land. We’ve been pinning wedding items and are enamoured with this blush spring floral centerpiece. It’s perfection.

Fried Chicken and Waffles: Pin of the Day

We’re starting a fun new feature and that’s a pin of the day from Pinterest. It’s an idea we’ve been toying with and there’s no time like the present! Seeing as how we both spend a good bit of time on Pinterest (do you blame us), it’s only natural we share what we’re finding and pinning here with our lovely readers and fans.

Today’s Pin of the Day is from The Kitchn — a fried chicken and waffle sandwich. Crispy fried chicken is combined with golden, syrupy waffles and crisp cool lettuce. Please pass the bibs!

Pinterest Pi Day Pie Roundup

March 14 is also known as Pi Day. That day that celebrates all things Pi. The number π is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and is approximately equal to 3.14159. Just thinking about math this early in the morning makes us hungry and what better way to celebrate Pi day than a round-up of pie recipes from Pinterest!

1. Who doesn’t love a Brown Sugar Buttermilk Pie. This one from une gamine dans la cuisine is going in my oven this afternoon.


2. This Old Fashioned Tomato Pie is just perfect for a summer meal when your tomato vines are at peak production.


3. Pumpkin Pie is a must have for Pi Day. We love this recipe from Hide the Cheese.


4. It’s nearly St. Patrick’s Day and we’d be remiss if we didn’t share the yummy Steak and Guinness Pie from The Cutting Edge of Ordinary.


5. Leticia loves a great apple pie, so to finish off this Pi day Pie Roundup, we’ve included this fantastic apple pie from Garnish with Lemon.


Do you have a favorite pie recipe or pin you’d like to share with us? Please let us know in the comments and Happy Eating!
