Pinterest Challenge

In March of 2010, Pinterest.com was created as a closed-beta site.  I discovered Pinterest in January of 2011 and after waiting impatiently for my invite to join (back then you had to request an invite and wait A LONG time to get included!), I started pinning away.  Most of the people that I followed had a board named “Things I need to do” or “Crafts I need to make” or “Stuff I need to DIY” and I was loving how much inspiration I could gather in one place.  The thing I didn’t love was that I never did any of it.  I needed accountability.  So I texted my bff Sherry and told her that I had a crazy idea for our pinning-but-never-doing habit.  A couple months later, we discussed how to bring in even more people…making it a bigger party.  That’s when the Pinterest Challenge was born.

The Pinterest Challenge is a really easy concept.  Four times a year Sherry, myself and two other co-hosts along with all our readers gather for one big git-er-done fest.  You pin something.  Then you do your own spin.  It’s really that simple.  And if you have a blog, we love to celebrate your hard work with you via linky party.  Here’s our past projects and those beauties that have participated with us as co-hosts…
