DIY Blocks & Dice - Awesome Pinterest Finds!

We've discovered Pinterest... and we're not sure if that is a good or a bad thing. Most definitely good because it's a fanTAStic way to find and share ideas, but 'bad' because we're finding it hard to spend a reasonable amount of time on the site {aka we get nothing else done}! Here's a few of our favorite finds so far...
