The Pinterest Challenge.

While I’ve never actually done an official post on it, most of you must know of my love for Pinterest. If you don’t already know, Pinterest is a place to catalog and organize the things you love and are inspired by online. It is like a virtual pin-board, hence the name. Anyone can join, you just might need to request an invite which could take a couple days. But be warned, it is inspiration overload and could quite possibly become an addiction.

I first read about The Pinterest Challenge on John and Sherry’s blog.  Along with a couple other lady bloggers, they are challenging themselves to make one thing each season that’s inspired by all the amazing stuff that they have pinned; this is the Summer edition. I thought that this was a great idea because so often, I pin something with the best of intentions of making a project out of it and I very rarely do. The ‘rules’ of the challenge is that it must be a fairly attainable DIY because, it needs to be completed in a week. They started their challenge yesterday, so all projects need to be finished by next Tuesday. I might give myself an extra day or two because I only heard about it today. But you can be sure to see a post sometime next week from me with my completed Pinterest project! I would love it if you would participate as well and send in photos of your projects! Maybe I’ll even post a few!

Here’s an example of a very simple Pinterest project I actually have completed (just to give you an idea…). This project, originally from here.

And my version here…

    You know, I had been thinking of doing this same thing as I keep posting fun stuff to make but not making them. Just the other day I attempted a mini felt bunting with my sewing machine with mixed results. But I’m going to try again, maybe with gluing them instead. I will take pictures when I’m happier with the results. 🙂

    Here is my “to-make” list:

      Ooo Anika, I love all the bunting and those pin wheels and some great envelops! Wouldn’t it be great to actually make all those things? I am hoping this challenge gets my butt in gear!

    I loved your silver trays so much that I wanted to do the same and bought two trays. The magnets will not stick to either of them. Can you give me any suggestions?? Thanks, Teresa Young

      Hi Teresa! I have found that magnets only stick to the trays that are not copper or silver plated… It’s usually the cheaper ones that are magnet-friendly! Good luck!
