We've all sat on Pinterest looking at all the pretty photos of projects we wish we had time to tackle: a new way to display your jewelry, some DIY wall art, a new dish. And when we finally do tackle these projects, most of the time they don't come out as planned, i.e., Pinterest Fails.

But today, I'm here to be a little more positive. I'm going to share with you my Pinterest successes. Most of them are food-related, but I have one DIY craft that actually worked and I still use it today.

A Big Mouthful's Lemon Orzo Salad with Asparagus and Tomatoes

I made this when I was still in college. I had just recently gotten into Pinterest and I felt like cooking something new and interesting for dinner. I have to say that this recipe is delicious. Definitely worth a try, and it's so easy to make. Link to the original pin.

Pink Parsley's Greek Pita Pizzas

Tom and I made this for dinner one New Year's Eve. My parents were out with some friends and since we had the kitchen to ourselves, Tom and I decided to skip the crowded restaurants and expensive dinners. We made these little pizzas and I highly recommend. Link to the original pin.

An Edible Mosaic's Lemony Chick Pea and Herb Wheat Berry Salad

I wrote about my fondness for wheat berries a couple of weeks ago, and this is one of the variations I've tried. I haven't done this exactly by the recipe, but kind of borrowed from the idea of this. I combined arugula, feta, and chick peas with the lemon dressing. One day I'll make this by the book. Link to the original pin.

Lace & Frame Jewelry Display Idea

This image is sourced from an expired Etsy link, so here's the link to the original pin,  Again, I took the idea of this and adapted it to the materials I already had. I bought some discount ruffle-y lace from the craft store for $1 (not kidding), and took a cork board that used to hang in my room when I was in college. I stapled the lace to the board and hung earrings on it for my craft fair display. I have to say, it's worked out quite nicely.
