A Pinterest Challenge

I had put off playing on Pinterest for as long as I could. I fought the good fight and finally gave in! For those of you who don’t know what Pinterest is, you are lucky. Its an addicting site where you “Pin” your favorite things from the web. For example, decorating ideas, recipes and so on. Your friends do the same thing, so its a whole bunch of looking at stuff other people have “Pinned” as well.  Send me your email if you want an invite and so you can be addicted too. It’s very time sucking. Cool, but time sucking as heck!

I got to thinking about all of the folks pinning stuff. Does anyone actually do any of the projects , buy any of the things they pin or make any of the food? Do we just pin it for things that we would like to do, like to try, like to buy? A show of hands if any of you have done any of the things you pinned. If so, what?

With a new month starting, I’m going to suggest a Pinterest Challenge; Make something, do something, buy something from your Pinterest board. I don’t care if its 1 or 100 things.  At the end of the month, let’s have a hop linking up your posts of what you did, bought and so on.  We will have a hop and link up starting on Friday, June 29th and running through the weekend. Show off the things you made. Tell is if it really was as easy as the original pinner suggested. Show off that bauble you pinned a year ago.  I don’t care what you do or how you do it, but lets all do something.

Feel free to share this with your fellow addicted Pinning Pals. Pin it on your board so others can join in.  Let them know about it and lets see if we can have a whole slew of folks actually do something with their pins. If you don’t have a blog, just send me pictures and the copy and I will post it on a page of my blog.  That way everyone can show off their projects.

Who’s with me?



  1. Nice page, I enjoyed your pinterest.. I signed up for one but have yet to use it. From the sounds of it I should take your advice and stay away haha. Thanks, I will be bookmark for later.

  2. I think I will be one Pinterestmania. I do a lot of things and this is my chance.

    • Oh, good. Now you can show off what you have done. I’m just excited to see if things are as tasty or as easy as people who pin them claim.

    I just made the Bacon Pops that I had pinned. It was for Adam’s birthday he likes bacon. They are very rich however, but pretty good.

  4. Great idea!!! I do actually do a lot of things off Pinterest so I will definitely be joining in!!! I will have plenty to share!!! Thanks, Bernie!

    • I had a feeling that you did quite a few of the things you pinned. Now we get to see what you have done. Fun!

    Ohhh, I am making Vichyssoise today from my recipes section, and I just ate at Hanabi from my dining section. :) Oh and I just thought of you and Jen when I posted my latest funny thing, does that count? This is a great idea!! I will send you a picture of the soup when its done since I am not sure if I will be doing a blog post on this, I am still lacking the drive to write. :(

    • I can understand lacking the drive to write. When it gets to be the end of June, I’m sure you will have more to add.
