I've been getting back my love for pinterest this week - if you've not checked it out yet or if you want to see my pins have a peek here - http://pinterest.com/fluttersparkle/

Also I thought I'd just give a little plug to my facebook page which I now update with all of my posts, so it's a good way of keeping up with blogs if you use facebook a lot - http://www.facebook.com/flutterandsparkle
