Pinterest is all the rage when it comes to home and apartment projects. We at Silverbrook wanted to put a DIY Apartment Fun Pinboard together of a few of our favorite DIY apartment ideas.
If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard, that allows you to take any image from the internet and place it on a categorized pinboard. You can take any image from any website and add it to your collection. Let’s say you search Google for “Decorating Ideas” and you come across a website that has an idea you like, instead of doing it the old school way and bookmarking it, you can download the Pinterest bookmarklet, and add that decorating idea to your “Decorating Ideas” Pinterest board, to come back and view later.
Pinterest is also a great way for brides to plan their weddings. You can search Pinterest for “Wedding ideas on a budget” and you’ll get tons of images that match your search. When you click on an image, it will show you a how-to or where you can purchase what you are looking at.
Do you use Pinterest for other things? Let us know in the comments!

It’s the first week of January and I already have broken my New Year’s Resolutions. I want to drink less, eat healthier food, reduce my coffee intake and exercise more. Sounds like pretty standard New Year’s Resolutions to me. I should be able to keep at least one or two of them.
I can admit that I have a tiny love affair with my smart phone, who doesn’t right? I decided to look for apps that would help me keep my New Year’s Resolutions.
Check out this article to help you find the right app for you Silverbrook. Are you going to download any of these apps? Let us know in the comments.
In light of the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, we were looking for ways that we can help those affected in some way. In doing a Google search of “ways to help Sandyhook” the fist link to populate was a list posted by USA TODAY.
If you feel inclined, you may sign the Sandy Hook Elementary School National Sympathy Card. The card will be delivered to community officials with all the signatures. You can sign that card here.

Over the summer, I got the chance to eat at Texas De Brazil. I instantly fell in love with the flavor of the steaks, lamb, chicken, etc; now I believe I am addicted. I recently tried Fogo De Chao and have to say everything was just as great. I have noticed there are more Brazilian Steak places like Villas Grill, Rafain, Boi Na Braza, just to name a few. Have you tried any of these places? If so, what is your favorite Brazilian Steakhouse, Silverbrook?
