My First Pinterest Challenge!!!

SO! I have been obsessed with Pinterest for quite a while now, but have only been pinning myself for a few months. (I have NO idea why on Earth it took me so long to jump on the band wagon). In case you don't know what Pinterest is, it is a place where you can "pin" all of your favourite images from around the web, into one convenient place...and the best part is, when you click on your "pin" it takes you directly to the site you found it. So no more knowing you saw a picture somewhere, but forgetting where!
   I have so many things pinned that I want to make, but have either not had enough time, or don't have a house to "store" them, or have just been too plain lazy to make them. 
Sherry from Young House Love, Katie from Bower Power, Ana from Knock-off Wood, and Erin from House of Earnest are joining forces to host....wait for it....

(just in case you couldn't guess what it was called from the title hehe) Basically these ladies are challenging us to get off our butts to finally MAKE what we have been pinning. Like Sherry said, "I've been pinning 1001 things, and have only done 1% of them", which still puts her ahead of me. I haven't really done any of the things I've been pining. (Since good intentions don't count and all.) 

  According to the challenge, I have a week to get myself together and make something. Everyone will be sharing what they've done next Wednesday. I think the hardest part for me, will be to actually pick something to make. I have a few that are top contenders.

I had about three different shots of this one pinned (you can tell I really like it), but for some reason or another they were deleted :( ...and this one doesn't link to anything...I know it came from a photographers if anyone recognizes where it's from, let me know. This won't be hard to make...just time consuming.

from here...I love wreaths sooo much, I already have about 3 wanting to be hung at home...and they're easy to make.

LOVE these (along with pretty much everything from that site). I think they may be a bit adventurous for me to do in a week, but I like a challenge. 

Adorable...from here. This would be good to test my newly-rediscovered sewing skills.

So, now I just need to pick which one I'm going to do. They all are kind of baby related aren't they (well with the exception of the wreath). To me they also all make me think of warmth, and we'll go with that's why I liked these, instead of the fact I have baby on the brain.

You'll have to tune back next Wednesday to find out which I chose to make! And if you want, to see what everyone else made!


  1. Omg make me those boots for Christmas! They're so cute! -mer

  2. Haha, those boots are for babies silly! But they are cute, I would totally sport them...slippers? I think I'd have to try them baby size first haha, before I ventured larger haha
