I am a
rabid avid Pinterest pinner. I have boards called Fun Fashions, Bon Appetito, Outside Stuff, Cinderella, Cake, and many more. Many many more. Now for my confession. I’ve never made a single thing I’ve ever pinned. Never made a recipe from Bon Appetito. Never made a project from Art Art Baby. Never tried any of the artsy craftsy stuff I love to pin on there. Never tried to recreate any of the Fun Fashions. The only board that I can say I’ve accomplished anything on is Been There Done That about my travel adventures.
Well people–hear my battle cry–I am determined not to let all those pinning hours of my life be for naught! I am going to be a maker of Pinterest things. I’ve decided to make myself a calendar and once a week I am going to try one thing I’ve pinned. One week it will be from one board and the next from another, and so on and so on and so on and so on–sorry that was annoying.
I can’t wait to taste some of the yummy and pretty looking recipes I’ve pinned on Bon Appetito while wearing an outfit from Fun Fashions. Be inspired by some of the pins on my Color Crazed board, complete a project from Outside Stuff and then celebrate with a drink from my Prost board! Well, that is how I picture all this happening. But have you heard of the Pinterest Fails sites?
Some of the fails are because the person who did the project tried to substitute ingredients and/or supplies. Some are people who tried but lacked the necessary skills to succeed. Some are people who appeared to have been coerced or blackmailed into doing the project. Some are just plain idiots who didn’t really try and succeeded at failing.
I plan on beginning my Pinterest Adventure next week so prepare to be amazed and astonished, baffled and befuddled, excited and exhilarated, and so on and so on and so on….
If you want to find me on Pinterest look for Katyoparty. If you want to make a suggestion about what I should try first from Bon Appetito that would be awesome. That’s where I plan to start.
Now tell me–do any of you have any Pinterest experiences?
