Pinterest Poser Challenge and A Blog Share

It's time again for the Pinterest Poser Challenge In an attempt at not being a Pinterest Poser,* every week I  detail a new Pinterest challenge whether it be a new recipe or a craft.   
**My definition of a Pinterest Poser is someone who is all pins and no substance.**

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been more about pinning than making/creating/crafting.  Sometimes the poser in me takes over and I'm all about pinning pretty things just because they are pretty and I have no intention of making them.  

But I did do a couple simple projects and used Pinterest as a quick reference guide.

One afternoon, the kids and I made paper snowflakes.

Sure, some turned out better than others. 

But overall, it was a fun project that the whole family could do together (ages 5 and up).

And then I copied a chalkboard design from a Pinterest picture and of course my writing is crooked.  I do everything crooked.

Two simple, yet I think quite lovely, projects that make my home cozier and sweeter.

Here are a few projects that I am resolving to attempt in the near future, so stay tuned.
It seems like a crazy, big project...but it could happen people.  I'm going to try it.  I have two old doors just sitting in the garage, waiting to be Pinterested.

I can't wait to try my friend Jaima's recipe.

Just have to come up with what words I want on my subway sign and then I'm tackling this bad boy.

Here are some of the projects I've already attempted, the good and the bad:

Furniture Painting and Bench/Chest Makeover- click here

Come on over and follow my Pinterest boards.

I would like to announce....

It's a new year and I'm feeling all inspired to do something new and scary.  So, I'm hosting a blog linky, or blog hop.  But here's the thing, I hate the word "linky," it's dumb.  So I'm calling it a blog share.  

If you have a blog and you wrote a post about something you made, sewed, cooked, painted that was inspired by Pinterest, please link up and share. 


  1. ooh, maybe your subway-style sign could have your favorite pittsburgh neighborhoods? they have such great names...shadyside, squirrel hill, point breeze, etc.

  2. I LOVE your idea Jen! You are brilliant. BTW, I still need your help w/your curtains made out of sheets idea.
