Excited doesn’t come close to explaining how thrilled I am about this post.
I am here to announce a very very happy day…a day that was born from the desire to ‘play house’ with my girl Sherry. Let me ‘splain…Sher and I are always talking about how we wish we lived closer so that we could pop over and let the kiddos play on the floor together while we get up to our naturally thick Italian eyebrows in home decor projects. Except one problem….err…537 problems…also known as miles. That is the distance between our cities…making ‘playing house’ a little more difficult. Hence the Pinterest Challenge.
Never heard of the Pinterest Challenge? Well, here’s a little video that explains it all….
In a nutshell – each of us gals are picking one project we loved on Pinterest and doing our own spin on it. No the peeps at Pinterest have no idea we are doing this…SURPRISE!
Oh and did I mention that two other fabulous girls are participating in this summer edition?! Um yeah. Lana – a former True Value blogsquad member (we go way back) and Emily (yup – THE Emily Henderson of HGTV fame) are also whipping up some Pinterest inspired projects to share with you all.
And in case you were wondering, no – the video isn’t the only time I terribly embarrassed myself in front of Emily. What is it with famous people that make me act all weirdo inbred?! Seriously. First I tell Nate Berkus that I am a redneck with a southern accent…and then in a recent email I tell Emily that she should be inspired by a golden banana vase that looks more like a male body part than a fruit? On the flipside – I still believe she could pull that off…and dingaling-inspired-home-decor-items are always a crowd-pleaser…but seriously katie, you need to get a grip. specifically on your mouth. and just keep it shut with both hands and maybe a little upholstery thread.
Okay – back to the point of this post…AND YOU WONDER WHY THIS BLOG ISN’T FAMOUS…The Pinterest Challenge.
I plan on doing something in this room for over the bed….
I ain’t gonna tell you anything else – so you will just have to wait till next week (Tuesday the 2nd!) when we all reveal the final projects! In the mean time, you can join in on the fun…you have one week to pick a project and do your own spin too! Or you can go over and tell Emily you like ding-dongs. How funny would that be if she got like ten comments saying that?! AWKWARD!
