A Pinteresting Proposal

2011 October 26

It’s Back!  The Pinterest Challenge was such a fun motivator for all of us this past summer and so we thought it would be a good way to get a proverbial autumn bonfire under our rears to get something done this fall! 

This time we have a few new hosts joining Sherry (of Young House Love fame) and me - so let’s make sure to show them some love – group smooches goes to Ana of Ana-white.com and Erin of House of Earnest

Yup – this time around it looks like a brunette brigade…and if you don’t have these three gorgeous girls in your reader, well, you are missing out.  Get on that.  Like now.  Like yesterday.  Like 1981.

And for anyone that missed the Pinterest Challenge last time – here’s what’s what:

We all heart Pinterest.  We pin inspiration all the time.  Stuff we want to try to make ourselves but before the DIY train leaves the depot, it gets stuck on our boards and never gets done.  So this is a public challenge.  One that gives us a steel-toed-boot-in-the-derriere to make our pins come to life.  We are planning on posting our completed projects in one week – on Wednesday, November 2nd.   And you are very welcome to join in on the fun. 

Here’s how you bloggers can play along:

  • Like the wacky photos said – pick your Pinspiration project.  Do it.  Blog about it.  Celebrate!
  • In your blog post, we ask pretty please for everyone to share the link love!  Link to the Pinterest item, the ORIGINAL source of the inspiration photo on Pinterest, and it would be soo nice if you also linked to the four Pinterest Challenge hosts above (you have no idea how much we appreciate the linkage love too!)
  • Linky Party at the Bower House!  Each host has the option to linky party - so if you blogged about your project, link up with us too so that we can all see your completed projects and we can share it to our readers. 
  • Have fun!  No matter what the project is – it can be small, big, super-sized, seasonal, decorative, cooking, crafty – anything goes…just as long as it “Pinned then Spinned” you can consider us fans!  

That’s it.  Uber simple.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!  Off to choose my project!

p.s.  Pinterest has no idea who Katie Bower is…if I had a birthday party, they wouldn’t be spitting on the cake with me as I blew out my candles.  All that to say, Pinterest does not endorse or sponsor this challenge – it’s just a fun way we girls want to get motivated to git er done :)
