How many of you are on Pinterest? I joined a couple of years ago and haven’t spent a lot of time on it, but there have been a few things I have tried. Mostly a few recipes here and there. I have a lot of pins, but never make the time to attempt the projects. It is so easy to make excuses. I don’t have time to do this. It is too involved, etc. So after doing a lot of thinking about it, I have decided to create my own Pinterest challenge.
I was pretty successful 2 years ago with my 30-day blog challenge, so along those lines I am going to do a 52-week Pinterest challenge. There are no “rules” per se. I will attempt one project, recipe or other pinned item per week. I will take a photo of my accomplishment and share the good, the bad and the ugly.
For example, I have been looking at a lot of organizing tips and there are some places in our house that need to be organized (my office space, my closet, kitchen). So I will take a before and after photo. Not too excited about showing the before photo’s but I want this to have an impact. And it will help me “take ownership” of my not-so-organized life.
I have been compiling a bunch of “pins” in a secret board on Pinterest and will try to come up with some good ones. Ideally, I would love to do a recipe, an organizing task and a creative task each month. Having 4 or 5 pins to do each month should keep things interesting and by the end of the year I am hoping the house in organized, I have some really cute crafts (some will definitely be Christmas related) and some new recipes that our family loves. If things are going smoothly I may even throw in some bonus pins. We will see.
I have some other things in the works, but I am not going to talk about those just yet. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, have a safe and Happy New Year! I think 2014 will be a fun year.
Thanks for reading!
