I love Pinterest. I love it the same way that I love chocolate and sushi, with an obsessive, indulgent, bingeing love. Recipes, crafts, household tricks, party ideas, design inspiration, DIY projects, parenting GENIUS — it’s like a piñata of goodies for grownups.
Pinning is almost therapeutic for me. I get the satisfaction of being productive with just the click of a button. And I get this phantom sense of accomplishment when I see all the cool things I could do … even if I have no intention of ever making my own laundry detergent or freezing 60 crock pot meals in a bag for only 5 bucks. Power to the ladies (and gentlemen) that do!
In fact, I know I could very easily become a pin-hoarder, someone who pins EVERYTHING but never does anything with it. To avoid this, I am challenging myself to keep a Pinterest checklist.
My goal is to actually become an awesome-handy-crafty-clever person, and not just a FAN of awesome-handy-crafty-clever people. Also, I can report on how things go! Because some of my favorite pins are those Pinterest FAILs. 😀
- Brownie in a Mug. DONE and DELICIOUS! See how it went.
- Deck of Love. For my special guy, d’awww! See how it went.
- Jello Fruit Snacks. You are never too old for fruit snacks. See how it went.
- Birds’ Nests. Is is a cookie, or a candy? See how it went.
