Our very first Spring edition of the Pinterest Challenge has arrived! Get excited! Turn yourself into a cat!
That was weird.
I’m not even a full fledged cat person. Or am I? 🙂
Okay. So considering this is a post that is just like the other three we do each year to announce the Pinterest Challenge, I figured it was time for a little weird. Plus…there is just no possible way to compete with the cuteness of the last announcement of the Pinterest Challenge.
BUT for the sake of those who are new and need an explanation, I will go ahead and do just that. Those of you who know what’s up can just enjoy me zombie-fied….
(hollah walking dead!)
Here’s how it’s gonna work….
The Pinterest Challenge is really REALLY simple. Basically it’s just a call to action. We all pin-pin…so now it’s time to DO DO. (wait that sounds wrong. unless you gotta.) Here’s some of the details on what we are doing…
- Pick your Pinspiration project. Do your own spin. 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 below (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!
And now to introduce you to the other beautiful non-zombie cohosts…
- Emily from Sparkle meets Pop
- Renee from Red Bird Blue
- Sherry from Young House Love
So go get doing! And like always, Pinterest doesn’t know me. The zombie or cat version either. Although I am sure they would be interested in sponsoring me once they see this:
C’mon Pinterest. Everybody loves James Cameron.
p.s. turn yourself into a cat here. a zombie here. and an oversized blue avatar here.
*************UPDATE: Oops! Forgot to put the date! We will come back in one week on Wednesday May 8th to share our final projects! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

OMG Katie, you just always have to take it to the next level, ahahaha. You’re amazing.

See ya back here in a week!
bahahaha, so is your pinterest challenge a secret?
I am probably just being an idiot and missing it. What date?

Katja @ Shift Ctrl Art says
Oh this is exciting. As soon as I find out which date it is, this is so going in my calendar 🙂
Now to search through my Pinterest boards…. what to pick, what to pick…
OMG I avatared myself and it was terrifying.
I will be so glad when the zombie craze ends…. that and the mustaches. But I digress… Yay for the Pinterest challenge!
These graphics made my whole morning. You are a steaming cup of awesome. 🙂
You’re weird, in a good way! Last year for Halloween I did a zombie family picture with my husband and our one year old… It didn’t go over very well. 🙂 I’m in for the Pinterest Challenge! What are you going to do??
Your avatar teeth are amazing! Too perfect to be living in the jungle!
Wrong blog to click on this morning. ACK
We are soulmates. You just don’t know it yet.
Seriously though.. I love you.
I love the cat pic – made me lol. 🙂
Hope Ward says
I totally LOL’d at work and had to show just about everyone you as a cat, but even more the tag under it “That was weird” Love following your blog!!!
This post made me fall madly in love with you. I had the biggest grin on my face when I got to the Avatar version of KB…thiiiis close to laughing out loud at my desk. I love how random you are.
These are hilarious!
I am not a cat person, but love the cat pic! Too funy! 🙂
I love you… in a non-creepy way. I promise. You’re just uber awesome.
I think the car one is the best! I love the Walking Dead but I don’t want to be a zombie. I want to be Mischonne.
CAT. iPhones don’t take spelling lessons.
Oh yessss my fave!
I vote for zombies with mustaches!
I always seem to miss these (aka, have an excuse that the timing just isn’t right to do an extra project…), but I MUST participate this time so here is my commitment to do so! Let the Pinteresting begin!
Oh my gosh – I am SO going to have some fun with those links later today! Haha!
Molly Hart says
OOOOH, can’t wait to do this! When does it start? Any time in May?
KB, I am dying to know what color you painted your dining room. I’m ready for the big reveal!!!!
Dana at Happy Little Lovelies says
OOH…this looks fun! Ok, I’m new to this, but it looks like from the other pinterest challenge that we have a week to finish and post? Is that right?
Hehehehe…. hehehehe… hahahaha… teeheheheheee. Okay I’m done laughing at the Avatar version of you. Made my day. Thanks. And it’s my birthday too!
One week! We will come back here to share on Wednesday May 8th!

I’ve said it before, but it has to be said again, you are HILARIOUS! Oh, this post was so wrong but I just cracked up(well the pictures were wrong). I feel like you’re a close friend when you can be all crazy & hilarious. Can’t wait to see your challenge project.
Lisa Wenckus says
Can I participate if I don’t have a blog? How would I link up?
Andrea Bohlen says
Can’t wait to do this!!! I have a total page on my blog called pinspiration!!! Would love for you to check it out. I am a new blogger but trying my bestest ; )
One week! May 8th!

You could always link up your facebook page or online photo from a site like flickr!

I’m surprise you didn’t catify Sherry! You guys usually post the same Pinterest announcement! Bummer ; )
Yeah. I know. But with the big house news she spilled on Tuesday, she spent all day reading comments and we decided it would be the perfect time to do our own thing. Besides, Sher be too politically correct to admit she likes cats when Burger is watching 🙂
xo – kb
Too funny. But I think you need an updated picture of Sherry. It so doesn’t look like her!
I asked her if she wanted to switch it out with something more current but she said no. 🙂

Cool idea. I’m new to Pinterest (yeah, like I’ve been living under a rock!) and will see if I even know how to link it up on Wednesday. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to it.
