Okay, I wish I could say that I LOVE Pinterest … but I get overwhelmed whenever I actually go TO the site. But I do like it for the bookmarking function – when I find something I like, or a tutorial, or a paint color, or a super cute pair of curtains that I decided I MUST have for Lucy’s nursery since Ken would kill me if I put them in our master bedroom, then I like the option of “pinning” it for future reference.
See? Cute Curtains for the Cute Baby Nursery That is Still Not Decorated.
[oh yeah, this is me on Pinterest. holla!]
Anyway, I decided to use Pinterest for good. I’ve saved a bajillion tutorials and ideas and crafts and shops, and I want to actually DO something with them.
I made this skirt out of an old t-shirt I bought at Goodwill using a tutorial I saved on Pinterest …
Okay, confession … Emma originally had it on backwards.
image 1 – me: “Emma, I think your skirt is on backwards.”
image 2 – Emma: “Really? Where?”
image 3 – Emma: “Oh yeah!! hahahahaha!”
Anyway, I am getting off course … I have decided to challenge myself to do or make or buy something off of my Pinterest boards once a week. That won’t be too hard, right?
I mean, this? Lucy would love.
And this? Emma would squeal.
And for me? A photo challenge for my October 365, perhaps?
So I’m putting it out there. Once a week, I have to post something I’ve done or made from items I’ve saved on Pinterest. And we’ll see how it goes. You guys have to hold me accountable, m’kay?
I think I’ll start with … these pants for Emma. Dude, it was cold this morning, and my girl’s brand new pair of jeans are about 1/2” too short. WHY must kids GROW!?!?!?
Are you on Pinterest? [add me!] Are you interested in joining a weekly Pinterest challenge?
What are some of your favorite tutorials??
