Pinterest Challenge – Fall
Since Halloween is just a few more days away, we decided to whip out a little blast from the past! And yes, I died laughing when I saw Sherry dressed up like a ‘wolf’ and the creepy hair one. Who knew Sher had such an odd experience with costumes?! #thisexplainsalot.
No but seriously…we are both thrilled to announce that the Pinterest Challenge is back! Time to get your frightfully full Pinterest boards to work! Let’s challenge ourselves to git-er-done!
For you new folks, the Pinterest Challenge is uber easy. Like falling down when body-bumped-by-a-pregnant-girl-easy. Basically you take something you pinned on Pinterest and do your own version. You only have seven days to get it done…so if it’s a 1970′s Halloween costume, you’ll be done in just the knick of time to get some candy for your hippies (sorry, the cheesiness just flows so naturally from my pores).
In one week, we will all come back here to share and rub our awesomeness in Pinterest’s face. In other words, we will host a linky party and everyone can visit your blog or gallery. Also, we encourage excessive compliments….and more pinning. It’s like the song that never ends. it goes on and on my friends.
And just like in challenges of yester-season, we have two amazing (and freakishly goodlooking) gals to co-host with us. I am very excited to share with you two of the sweetest and stylish girls on the interwebs. First up is Sarah from Ugly Duckling House. If you aren’t one of her 2.9 million followers on Pinterest….well, you should be. The thing I love most about her (besides the fact that we share Atlanta as home) is that she’s tackling her home on her own. Total girl power. And then there is Selma Hayak’s daughter Carmel. She’s not really Selma’s kid but seriously…she should be. She has this unbelievable gorgeous home….and if you aren’t following along with her blog Our Fifth House, well, you are missing out. They are taking on this challenge with us and I am so excited to see what they tackle.
I would absolutely love it if you joined us too! Here’s some general tips to help ya when you reveal your final projects:
- The project inspiration needs also to be linked up to…but not only to the pinterest item – but also to the original source (whether that be a store like Pottery Barn or a blog or a website) Let’s make sure to give credit where credit is due, y’all!
- Remember that no project is too small or too big.
- Projects have no limits….cooking, sewing, crafting, DIY, home stuff, I might be revealing a baby if he comes early….anything goes
- If you want to post about your own Pinterest Challenge projects on your own blog – it would be super nice to have you include the Pinterest Challenge Banner and link back to our project posts too! Links give us a chance to meet new friends and become one big happy internet family
- Oh and Pinterest doesn’t know about this challenge (or endorse, sponsor, etc.) – if I had a sneezing fit, they would not let me borrow their dry pants in order to avoid embarrassment.
See you guys in a week!
p.s. Some folks were asking about how we pick our co-hosts, and it goes a little something like this: I go through the linked up projects and find two folks that played along in the past challenges. It’s not based on their final projects…more that they tried and then blogged about their success/failure in an inspiring/get-er-done kinda way…then we ask really nicely while having our fingers crossed that they will associate with a couple of weirdos who have a soft spot for word bubbles
