Hello Blog readers (all 4 of you)! I apologize for my lengthly absence around these parts… lots of things got in the way of blogging: my day job (which sometimes turns into a night job, too), visiting family & friends, house organizing, cleaning, laundry, gardening and, well, I guess just Life. And, I can admit, there are a lot of unfinished projects around here and I wasn’t feeling like blogging about any of them!
BUT, today that all changed when I checked in at one of my favorite house blogs: Young House Love (YHL for short) and heard about the awesome, fantastic, amazing Pinterest Challenge! Sherry from YHL and Katie at Bower Power are teaming up with Emily Henderson from HGTV and Lana from Make a House a Home and issuing a challenge to all of us pin-addicts: actually complete a project based on something we’ve seen and pinned at Pinterest. And do it by next Tuesday morning. Behold:
What’s Pinterest, you ask? Only the best thing since Al Gore invented the internets!!!! Essentially, Pinterest is an online bulletin board where you can collect and “pin” different ideas, photos, recipes, tutorials and the like to virtual bulletin boards. It’s fan-freaking-tastic. Feel free to check out my boards: here. L likes to joke that he secretly monitors my boards so he knows the
harebrained amazing projects in his future.
The Pinterest Challenge has reinvigorated my blogging energy and gotten me excited about completing a couple of the simple projects I keep gazing at on my “I Can Make This” board. So… will I tackle this?
Only time will tell! Check back next Tuesday for the big reveal. And in the meantime, get inspired by Pinterest!
