These 12 are fun! I think one thing that makes a pin attractive is the quality of the photography (rightly or wrongly!). I'm not a HUGE pinner but of course I can't resist dabbling. I did a style challenge last year, and this pin is fun to me - the point was to experiment with nails so I did the matt/shiny black and customized the "I Spy" graphic to say "I Spy Style." I stayed up ridiculously late getting it all to work but .... it was fun! http://pinterest.com/pin/248401735667601342/ I'll also share a "Mom's Fashion board" that my daughter made for me. I love that she took the time and initiative to do it: http://pinterest.com/tenleykiger/mom-fashion/
