Pinned It Did It Monday {thanksgiving edition}

pinned itWelcome to Pinned It, Did It Monday where I show you the pins I’ve actually done from Pinterest.  I like to hold myself accountable to doing some things I find on there.  Otherwise, I just get sucked into getting on there and thinking I don’t cook well enough, do enough creative things with the kids, or have a pretty enough home.  Baby #1I knew I wanted Ellison to have a ruffled skirt to go along with her turkey shirt for Thanksgiving last week.  I pinned about 10 different skirts and after a short browsing, settled on Dana from Made’s layered skirt.  I LOVE this woman’s blog and her tutorials are always very detailed and easy to follow.
