12 Weeks to Complete 12 Pins!

I have recently joined the wonderful world of Pinterest, an activity I shied away from all school year.  I know myself pretty well these days, and I knew that I would become obsessed with looking at all the wonderful things other people are able to accomplish and become downtrodden that my house, wardrobe, kitchen and children weren’t like the pictures I would pin.  In order to keep myself accountable against this inevitable course of events, I set some ground rules for myself:

1. Only pin items that are “do-able”:  I will not pin anything just because its pretty, especially if it’s of a hairstyle my wild curls could never be molded into or of a room that could never be found in my home!  This website is filled with links to ridiculous looking homes that I am convinced aren’t lived in by actual people.

2. Only pin what I WILL actually do:  If I know I’ll never have the money, the guts or the time to try it…. I will continue to scroll!!!

Rule #2 is my goal for this summer: 12 weeks to complete 12 pins!  I will choose a minimum of 12 projects, recipes and activities to complete over the course of the summer to further keep myself accountable and not get bogged down in a scrapbook of ideas I could never bring to fruition!  I’m excited to update my living room decor, repurpose old junk, try new recipes and make fun things for my girls!
