31 Days...of Pinterest


I read quite a few blogs on a regular basis. One of my favorites is A Slob Comes Clean.

One of the things she blogged about this week that sounded fun was a 31 Days of ______ Challenge over at The Nester. So, I went to take a look.

Basically, the plan is to pick one thing and write about it every day in October (that's where the 31 days comes in). There are sooooo many 31-day ideas that other bloggers have already linked up, that I had to think about what it was that I could actually DO for 31 days...and then it hit me as I was looking through my assorted pins for things to decorate the laundry room with. I could *gasp* actually MAKE some of these things.

Over on my Pinterest boards (of which I have 25), I have (as of right this second, anyway) 947 pins.

947.

Yes, I know. Quite possibly I need to stop pinning.

Or else get moving on some of those projects.

So, for the next, well at this point, 29 days, I will be making something from my boards every day (For the first 2 days that I missed, I will make something too).

I just joined Pinterest and haven't done much on it - I find it kind of overwhelming. So I am looking forward to your series!

Pinterest can be really confusing and overwhelming, I agree! I just jumped in and muddled around for awhile until I sort of figured it out. Actually, that's still what I do. :)

One of the best tutorials I've found on how to use Pinterest is at HomestoriesAtoZ.com. The link to the direct post is:

What a fun idea! I could look all day long at Pinterest!

I adore this idea. I'm going to do "31 Day of Raw Food" or something like that this October, but I must say your idea is truly tempting. So much on pinterest to choose from!
