I’m back.

Well I am one sad blogger being.

It’s been about 50 too many days since my last post.

The honest reason for my absence in laziness, being home from school and therefore spending every waking minute busy, the lack of pressure to crank posts out on the regular since the blog was birthed out of an ongoing, semester-long assignment for one of my classes, and now being back at school.

I told myself that the start of 2013 would be the start of new things on Within the Pin. But old habits die hard, and I am the best procrastinator I know, besides my mother of course.

Good thing I have lots of loving people around me who couldn’t care less if I kept up with blog posts or Pinterest.


See? Look at them. These are a few snapshots of my family from Thanksgiving right after the last post I published.


And this one with Ben. Isn’t he handsome?

Last Monday, I came back to school, and so it was goodbye to late nights watching The Office with Thomas (my brother) and Ben (my boyfriend). Thanks to this post from Sincerely Kinsey, I’ve been inspired to start scheduling posts and content long before I plan to release them. Not to mention, I’ll be digging for valuable content. You know, things you might actually care to read about all while sharpening my writing skills, desire for lovely visuals and Pinterest admiration.

Which, by the way, are my main reasons for blogging. I promise, this isn’t a cop-out, but I’m aware that the readership of this blog is, and may forever be, rather limited. Regardless, Within the Pin, which may undergo some changes over the next few months, is the perfect outlet for me to share interesting finds during my extensive amount of time spent internet gawking and, again, become a better writer/visual lover. I’ll be diving back into my fairly fresh blogging experience on January 21 because by then I should be settled back into my dorm and my classes.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Oh, and in case you read my last post about my antiquing trip with Thomas and Ben, my parents and Thomas, wise folks that they are, surprised me with the owl ice bucket for Christmas. Hooray for adorable objects that are also functional!

For now I’ll leave you with a current favorite pin. It’s from A Subtle Revelry, and I’d love to make some of my own and fill them with ice from Mr. Owl. One day.

Happy (belated) New Year!



I'm Emily Ann Moschner. I was raised on the sunny side of a street in Port Richey, Florida. Growing up, I doodled, sprinkled chalk dust on rollie pollie ollies and yes, hand-copied pages of the dictionary.

Some things never change.

Now, I call Gainesville my fake home. I am a journalism student at the University of Florida, and to the despair of my notebooks, I still doodle. Instead of feed, I photograph insects, or anything else I find remotely picturesque. As for the dictionary, well I am constantly flipping its pages wishing those days of copying had led to any of it sticking in my head.

Alas, I created a blog. To be real, it's for a class. Or maybe that's just an excuse because I follow about 80 and this was the next natural step.

Within the Pin takes pins that I have fawned over on Pinterest and uncovers the creator, designer, explorer, artist, baker and the like behind them. I want to give them the credit they deserve, and I want all of you to be aware of some remarkable art, designs, whereabouts, recipes and more.

So thanks for stopping by.
Let's dive within the pin.
