Winter Pinterest Challenge: A.K.A. - Is this real life?


Ok, so I don't even know how this happened you guys - but yours truly is co-hosting The Pinterest Challenge - Winter Edition.  What?!!?!!  - yeah that was my first response too.  Seriously, I am super excited and over the moon about being asked by the amazing Katie & Sherry to be one the co-hosts.  So, yeah that's me down there along with Michelle (the other co-host)- who is also extremely fabulous- and we are pumped.  Not only do I love both of their blogs (and have now found a new favorite blog by Michelle) but Pinterest is pretty much addicting... so I'm all in.  Oh, and as far as "winter" goes, we may be quickly approaching March but it snowed in NC last weekend people and that's a sure sign of winter here - so we are going with it..its winter.


The Pinterest Challenge (not sponsored by Pinterest or anyone else) was created by Katie to give us all a little kick in the booty to stop pinning and start doing!  Lets be honest, we all have probably pinned thousands of awesome ideas but have maybe attempted about 3 of them - whoops.  I simply love this challenge and have had so much fun participating in the past.  So far I have made a little striped silhouette and re-purposed an old board into a kitchen chalkboard.


The fantastic projects on Pinterest have also helped to spur on my big "get organized or get out" kick that I've been on lately.  There is so much organizational goodness to be had - and I go crazy pinning anything organizational related.  Lately, I've been organizing my junk drawer, our beside drawers, our mini office space and our laundry room.  So I'm thinking this time that my project will have to do with - you guessed it - organizing - since its where I'm at right now....and I'll leave it at that (I might still be narrowing it down).


So here are some challenge details -

 - Find a project you have pinned on pinterest - it can be anything!  Big or small it doesn't matter - its all about doing.

- Now, slowly step away from the computer and get to work making your own version of your pinspiring project! Make sure you include the pin and original source so the creator will get credit as well.

- Come back next Wednesday - February 27th and share it with all of us!  Then, we can all get even more pin-tastic ideas to pin and do!

Sound like a plan?! Yay! The challenge has been officially issued. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!  Sherry, Katie, Michelle and I will be sharing our projects too so make sure you come back and link up with us!  Have fun!

  2. This sounds like fun! I think I have a recent project that I could link up! See you next Wednesday! PS. I think we're both doubly awesome now because we both married Justins! I didn't know your hubby's name was Justin, too! :)

  3. Dear Megan, I hope you are enjoying your recent celebrity status. I am. I'm afraid of ending up in US Weekly's "They're Just Like Us Section" buying wood at Lowe's in my yoga pants and Uggs with greasy hair. How mortifying.

    Love,
    Michelle

    1. Michelle - Tonight my husband says," I read some of Michelle's blog and she is pretty funny". Let me just tell you that one - my husband usually doesn't read blogs and two - the fact that you received a pretty funny rating is High Praise my friend - High Praise.
