Check it out on this wonderful single mother of the cutest little girl:

“Like a lot of people, I’ve discovered Pinterest and have lost hours to it. The final blogger I’d like to introduce you to today is a wife and mumma of two who has set herself a year long challenge: to find something that interests her on Pinterest and attempt her own take on it – craft, baking, fashion, or whatever else she finds. She’s only just started the journey and I’m really enjoying it. I’m sure you will too! ”
