Have you heard of the new addicting website called Pinterest? If you haven't, you definitely need to check it out, but only if you have a few extra
minutes hours every week day to "Pin" items!
According to the Pinterest website,
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.
You can sit there and look at all the neat ideas and "Pin" them to your boards, but if you're like me and many others you don't ever take the time to do do the projects, recipes, etc. So this is where two of my favorite DIY blogs come in. Katie at Bower Power and Sheri at Young House Love thought up the Pinterest Challenge that they will hold every quarter. Basically they wanted to stop pinning and start doing some of their projects. If you click on the links above, you can see what their projects were this past week.
This quarter I decided to participate in the challenge and since it was around Halloween I decided to make The Pioneer Woman's Caramel Apples that I found here and pinned here. They turned out great and were pretty easy to make, once you got the hang of the caramel and how fast it dries!
So that is my Pinterest Challenge project! Now, I need to start tackling all the other projects and recipes that I have "Pinned". I will definitely let you know how they go when I get around to doing them!
Did you take part in the Pinterest Challenge? Have you ever heard of Pinterest before? Have you done any fun DIY projects lately?
