A Pinteresting Challenge

I love making lists. Many of them are only in my head, like a list of hobbies I'd like to take up (violin, crochet, sewing) or the list of cookery skills I'd like to try (making my own pizza dough, pickling something, baking bread). Some are transferred onto paper, like lists of books I want to read (on Goodreads and on this blog) or lists of recipes I want to try (cut out from magazines and pasted into a notebook).

I love inspiration. I look at magazines and I feel inspired to grow my own tomatoes, to put up shelves, to reorganize the kitchen. And to live better.

I love Pinterest (an online pinning board where you collect ideas from around the web). It satisfies all this in me and gives me hope that someday, somehow, I will find the time to put all the inspiration out there into action.

The problem is that although I pin every day, I rarely make anything I pin. For this reason I feel that I need to join Trish's new challenge: Pin It and Do It. Since the challenge is quite short, it ends at the end of May, I'm signing up for the middle level and vow to make or do 4-7 things I pinned.

I'm not making any lists for this one, we'll what inspires me most!

Want to see what I'm choosing from? Here's a link to my Pinterest dashboard. Not on Pinterest? Let me know if you need an invite and I'll send one.

YAY!!! I'm so glad that you're joining Joanna! Hope that you are able to get some fun things accomplished in the month (I know it's short but was afraid that people would lose interest--maybe we'll have a fall redux).

Can't wait to see what you come up with! And thanks for helping me spread the word. :)

I can't wait to get started! I'm going through all my pins and seeing what I'd like most to do.

I never really looked into Pinterest, but I'm afraid I'll now start and probably get hooked!

PS: Oh yes, please, I'd love an invite ;-)

Trish - Yes, I think it's better that it's only for a month, that way we won't forget about it!

Chris - can't wait to see what you make and do!

Larissa - you'd love it, I'll send you an invite today.
