Pinterest Challenge – Summer Edition!

July 3, 2012

Alright how many of us are on Pinterest, storing up all those great ideas we love and planning on actually tackling them “someday”.  Well friends, that someday is here!  Perhaps you’ve seen this throwdown around the blogosphere before – it was started by co-hosts Sherry of Young House Love and Katie of Bower Power last year and continues today.  Yep, it’s time for another round of the Pinterest Challenge and this is the Summer Edition!

I’m cohosting with the above mentioned blog friends (who I finally got to meet face to face at Haven – woot!) plus my buddy Michelle from Ten June!  This brunette band of DIY lovin’ ladies is issuing another throwdown, and we hope you’ll say “Game on!”

Time to take a close look at your Pinterest boards and all those projects you’ve been meaning to get to, choose one, and get ‘er done!  I’ve got so many ideas stored up on my boards, but I’m totally obsessed with one in particular, can’t wait to finally make it happen!   

So, what will yours be?  It’s time to try out a new recipe, paint a piece of furniture, craft, create, or sew – all projects are welcome, big or small.  Anything goes as long as the inspiration comes from an idea you spy on Pinterest.

(find all of these these projects and recipes on my Pinterest Boards!) 

I’ve got a ton of ideas saved up, feel free to check out recipes In The Kitchen, plenty of colorful painting ideas exist over at Color Inspiration, and you know I love to collect all those great craft and home improvement projects in my DIY Inspiration board! 

Here’s how it works:  No project is too big or too small!  Pick any project you have pinned or one you have seen on Pinterest and tackle it for your post.  Then write up your completed project and include a link to the Pinterest inspired project on Tuesday, July 10th, you’ve got one week!  Please be sure to link to the original source of the Pinterest inspired project too.  There will be link parties on that day by the co-hosts, so add your Pinterest Challenge project to any or all of them and link back to your hostess too.

We’re pretty excited about this, and the opportunity to meet new bloggers through this fun blogosphere par-tay – join us next Tuesday July 10th for the Pinterest Challenge – Summer Edition!   FYI, Pinterest has no clue about this, they’re not a sponsor, this is just a fun idea originated by bloggers and a great way to your bootie in gear and tackle one of your Pinterest “to do” ideas! 

Oh and pssssst.  Since the Pinterest Challenge is Tuesday, I’m moving the Fair Weather Chillin’ and Grillin’ Link Party to Monday instead.  Say what?  Two link parties back to back?  I know, call me crazy.  If you’ve got a great BBQ recipe or picnic sidedish or some tailgaiting tips you’d like to share, link them up here on Monday July 9th.  Link up your Summer Pinterest Challenge project the next day on Tuesday, July 10th

Join in the fun!

    I did a project from a Pin on Pinterest, but I do not know how to post it to your blog. It’s the chair socks I did, and I have the ones I made under crochet I made.
