In which I take up the Pinterest challenge

(Again with the Pinterest! Woman. Honestly.)

I am going to make this thing this weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I tend to get great ideas and then they pile up and then I don’t *do* any of them. Case in point: my drafts folder for my blog and the seven unfinished books-I-am-currently-writing. *cough cough*

Pinterest can turn into that, too. I see so many beautiful things, so many cool ideas or crafts or recipes and yet I just pin instead of make.

So I have decided that this weekend, instead of just pinning beautiful things, I will make some beautiful things. 

Here’s the challenge: Pick one thing from your Pinterest boards that you’ve been wanting to do or create or make or cook or bake.

Then actually do it this weekend.

Would you be interested in having a link-up party for it? If so, I’ll post mine on Sunday with a link-up and you can post on your own blog about it and then put the link here so that we can all see your creative self.

Let’s do this. After all:

    I’ll link up for a “Don’t Just Pin, Do it”  I’ve been doing some of my pins this week.  It feels great.  :)

    Heh. I’ve been thinking for some time now that I need to do this. My pinterest inspiration board is jam packed with stellar ideas… thanks for the kick in the pants. I’ll join you :)

    I have been thinking this same thing. I have started to make a few of the recipes I have pinned, but I have so many other things pinned too. I won’ t be able to do a project this weekend, but will be adding it to my to do list for the coming week.  Love that thankful tree too, can’t wait to see your tree!

    I was just thinking about this the other day how I always Pin things, but never do the things! Ughh! Totally need to work on it. Just have to decide which one to do!

    I actually made a “52 things I love about you” book for Chip from a deck of cards for our anniversary a month ago. Based on one I saw on Pinterest. And this weekend (if I can find energy – it’s been “a week”), I’m making him the “You’re the Bomb” dynamite out of rolos. (He’s recovering from minor surgery).

    It has been far to long since I’ve made any visual art! I think I make take up that challenge!

    Oh yes! Let’s have a linky party. We had a hurricane this weekend, so I was stuck inside and I crafted.

    I mention Pinterest (or something I’ve pinned on Pinterest) in just about every blog post I write or Facebook status update I post. Because I am absolutely freaking ADDICTED TO PINTEREST. And I don’t feel bad about it. Usually.

      All right then, let’s do it! I”ll put mine up tonight along with the Mr Linky thing and we can all have some fun together.
